I booked 2 tickets to visit on 8th December direct from the website. I was promised I would get full refund as they shut the tower for the day due to protests. Over a month now I have no refund as promised and no reply...More
We booked tickets before hand which saved a lot of queuing and risk of not getting up. We also booked for 11am summit so although busy not overcrowded and able to get to the edge for the views. Amazing views an experience from the summit...More
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
As dumb as it sounds. You really should see this. Security is very tight. So, leave large bags behind. Of you can get a guided tour, do this. Great way to see the surrounding city. Great photo opt... Do not bother with small kids. If...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

It's important to know that even if you do get tickets through Viator or another tour package company that they have 3 screening areas where you will encounter lines. The first line is for all ticket sales and they do not necessarily distinguish a booth for those who have already bought tickets verses those who are looking to buy them at the booths. They don't separate the attendees by the options other than and only if you selected to spend $1,500 Euro to eat at the restaurant at the top, then this you will find communicated on the signage. The French people and their systems are such that those who are in the know will progress past the lines instead of being a clear communication system.
Step 1 - Once you get through the quick security check point then proceed to the ticket area where you should show your prepaid ticket to one of the employees in professional coats who are lingering around the cattle lines so they may give you permission to step right up to the front skipping all those who are waiting to buy their tickets on site. We noticed this when some people were being advanced in front of us. If you do buy the tickets at the gate the lines typically take 30-40 minutes to get through.
Step 2 - Once you have presented your tickets they will give you a new ticket to then step over to another cattle line which is where you will be separated by those who chose to buy for stairs with some elevator stages or all elevator only.
They do not control crowds very well at all when you get into the tower. It will be jammed with people especially on the observation decks. Just be prepared for this.

My son is in a wheelchair. There is a separate line for people who need to go through security. Underneath the tower is where you line up to buy tickets don’t let that scare you off. We asked a lady for help and she lead us to the west elevator where there is a wheelchair ramp.
There are 3 areas on tower with wheelchair we could only access two of the floors.
They bent over backwards assisting us up and down the tower.
I can’t stress enough how helpful and courteous the staff was in making our time in Paris the best experience for our family.

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
