“A must do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

August is the season to Que. so be prepared to where every you go in paris during this month,we waited over 2 hours only to be told the top of the eiffle was closed due to congestion!!
So much to our disappointment we only got to the second level,we enjoyed the view but would loved to of gone to the top.
You have to visit the Eiffel tower when in paris,august is very busy so waiting is normal.

“A Majestic Landmark”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This is where you get a 360 degree view of Paris. i booked tickets online, so we skipped the long queue.Which takes you half way up.But there was a wait in line to go up to the summit. but once your there, you forget about the wait. And you don't want to tell family & friends that you did not make it to the
summit. Which was followed by a cruise on seine river, ( optional ) which was the second part of the package.

“just the view”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

i gave two stars only for the spectacular view you get from the top. everything else, not nice... arrogant people sort of welcoming you, the tower itself is like an electricity pole, only at night with all lights it looks nicer.... is really this one of the most visited tourist attractions of the world? wow!?! incomparable with Egypt temples, colosseum or komodo national park....

“A must but not during August”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

An amazing place to visit please don't miss it, make sure u buy the tickets in advance or you'll be queuing for hours, my two stars review only for two reasons, first I booked dinner and if u r not willing to pay for premium service (which wasn't available on the time of our visit) don't bother to do lunch or dinner, no choice between courses as we were promised, food wasn't nice at all, quantity was a joke, service was the worst I've ever seen in my life, for what we payed I was really shocked. Second I don't recommend Paris during August weather was extremely hot and everywhere was extremely busy we couldn't enjoy things the same way we did during our visit in October.

“A Lot of Steel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Its hard to imagine being in Paris without visiting this tower. It is a masterpiece of steel construction and offers outstanding views of the city. A testimony to the engineering capabilities of 1887, it offers a glimpse into the genius of Gustave Eiffel.

A trip to Paris would not be complete without seeing the Eiffel Tower.
