Seeing the Eiffel Tower was the highlight of my trip to Paris. I went and saw it in the night, and I would recommend others to do that as well. There was some kind of a light show, and it was one of the prettiest things I've ever seen on a vacation to a metropolis like Paris. I didn't take... More

Loved the Eiffel tower but looked from distance, in surroundings, with context. From underneath, on the feet of the tower is massively big and awkward to look at... even for pictures is hard and not as pretty... Recommendation, enjoy it at night, trust me!!

It's a Eiffel Tower and there is no comments. But make sure you are bundled up, because it's very cold and windy up there. Try to buy the ticket in advanced, and be punctual ;)

The Eiffel Tower is still an amazing sight. Be careful to book tickets ahead of your visit if you want to go up the tower. There is no charge for entering the grounds beneath the tower.. At the moment there is quite a lot of building work taking place within the tower, a bit noisy, viewing areas are being constructed.... More

Views were absolutely amazing! Looking up from the ground & down from the top. Although it's actually much shorter than the Empire State Building or Willis Tower, it feels taller when you're up there because you're not surrounded by other sky scrapers. Get tickets ahead of time to avoid lines, but not too much in advance because you want to... More

We had pre-booked tickets but that only helped us wait less to get to the second level where we had to wait for around 40 minutes with a chill wind for a second lift to the top. Fantastic views over Paris made it all worthwhile although you couldn't help but wonder if the whole experience couldn't have been organised better.

We had not been able to pre-book tickets so were worried about not getting up the tower. We need not have worried. One of the four pylons was dedicated to non ticket holders. We arrived 30 minutes before the ticket office opened and were at the top within an hour, despite a large queue. Be prepared for plenty of scammers,... More

Rather buy your ticket online, the lines are crazy in the evening! But what a beautiful view from the top , you could also walk to the top if you are energetic and not afraid of heights:)

A wonderful site to see, and an amazing panoramic view of a beautiful city. We nearly gave up, the long wait does rather spoil the day. We had thought about booking online the day before, but felt anxious as we couldn't print the tickets, though the hotel would probably have been helpful. What we learnt later - too late -... More

Love visiting Paris and the Eiffel Tower is a must see every time. The tower is surrounded by a beautiful park. Day or night it is an amazing experience. It is imperative to purchase tickets in advance or you could wait for hours to enjoy the tower view of Paris. We timed our tower experience just as the sun was... More
