“September 2012”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

A beautiful architectural design however there is not much to do around the tower, I did however propose under the tower, which is something that I will never forget!

“Worth the visit!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

....but if you don't get there in the morning first thing, prepare for LONG queues and budget at least five hours to get to the top and bottom again!

“Paris wont be complete without a visit to THE tower.”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The eiffel tower is said to be one of the most photographed landmarks on the planet. Therefore a visit to paris wont be complete without a visit to the tower. If you just want to take pictures around the tower, it obviously free. If you want to go up to the top most of the tower, you have to pay about 10 euros, there is also student discount with the fees. In my opinion the fees isnt expensive, its the lining up to get to the top of the tower. You have to line twice; first at the bottom of the tower to get to the middle of the tower, then from the middle of the tower to get a lift to the top. Then from the top you have to line up again to get down. The lining up at the bottom will take the longest time.

Therefore if you're young an able, i suggest you take the stairs, the lining up to get to the stairs is usually about 30 minits. But the lining up to get up by the lift will take about 2 hours or so. Yes, it is a bit of an exercise to get up to the middle of the tower by stairs, but i'll argue it is also an experience. You can climb little by little with the stairs, and admire the tower structure along with the view; which you cant from the lift. There are also interesting information on boards along the climb. Save you time and worth a try ill say!

“Most amazing experience”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Went on a tour so had priority entry to the lifts which was great, I wouldn't have liked to wait in the extremely long queue. one of the most amazing experiences ever! The views were just breathtaking. went about 9pm at night and the lights twinkled on the hour at 11pm, we just made it down in time but it was as if the most beautiful thing just got more beautiful I'm so glad I got to experience it.

“All around service”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

We ate here for their 3 course dinner meal. I didn't think the food would be spectacular here because it usually isn't when you eat in a tower type restaurant but they certainly delivered. The food was amazing, the service was great, wonderful views, and a very affordable wine list. You can get a very good bottle of wine for 35 euros.
