It is breathtaking to actually stand in front of the tower. You really have to know how to get into the grounds, as they are blocked by security and a fence. Check the entrance out before you go. You can climb up to the first...More

No picture does this architectural wonder justice. from the footings to the tippy top, worth the extra cost. Book tickets on their official website before travel to avoid lines. They are timed tickets. Very well run with regard to entry and lines for the elevator...More

There is no way you’ll manage anything in 30 minutes. It will take you at least 40-45 minutes IF you are lucky to buy a ticket.

There is no good way of doing this. In 5 days, you cannot reasonably see more than 2 cities. There are thousands of interesting sights in France, Germany and Switzerland.

Eurodisney to Paris for a daytrip to see Eiffel Tower (3 Replies)
We are staying at Eurodisney but would like to go into Paris for the day. We are near to the train station at Marne-la-Vallee. We want to go to the Eiffel Tower - does anyone know the easiest way to get there? We will have an infant with buggy and a five year old so the most straightforward way would be great. Does anyone know how long the queues are and what time would be best to avoid the worst. Once we have done this we will probably want to eat - any suggestions for child friendly...More

Get the RER A line from Marne la Vallee and get off at Charles de Gaulle Etoile (big station for changes). From here take the green line (can't recall the name off hand) to the stop called Champ de Mars/Tour Eiffel - Bir Hakeim). When you come out of this station head out and to the right and follow the road along the side of the Seine to reach the Eiffel tower.

Hi You can book tickets online but not sure when they're released. Might be already. Little tour operators like to snap those ones up though to sell with a package but no problem queuing on the day even if none available online.

Burj Al Arab is a popular place with many people, but think it might be a bit late to book a drinks package or a meal, but it will be an expensive night, you could try emailing them to see if they have anything available. Alternatively somewhere round the Madinat area where the waterways are might be nice, maybe ask one of the people who man the abras to do a tour (give him a tip!!!) as its meant for guests of Jumeirah hotels only and pop the question there. Am sure there will be many other...More
