“Go to the top”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

I'm afraid of heights and I made it to top. You don't have to watch while you are heading up. Once up there on main floor it's not too bad. Top tier is a lot more open but fun!! It's amazing when it sparkles at the top of each hour!! Well worth the money to go up!!

“Old: But Big, bold and Beautiful”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

This time visited during the night. Magnificent land mark monument. Went walking from the Metro rail. The street vendors on the way selling the souvenirs all around were a real disturbance. We went up the tower in the conventional lift. Breathtaking view of the city and places around. It was too cold and the weather didn't much favour the outdoor tour. Don't miss the Louvre museum/palace symmetrical shot from the top.

“Must do.”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

A must when visiting Paris. We pre booked on line for the lift to the top, meant we didnt have to queue in the ticket line. Great views but very cold at the top!!

“keep your eyes open!”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

The tower itself is great but beware of your surroundings! There were people everwhere asking if we spoke Englis and asking us to donate to a fake charity. Dont fall for it! They want your name, address, email add. as well as a donation. I read up on "how to stay safe in Paris" So I knew it was a scam, they just want your name so they can sell your email address and who knows what else. Also be mindful of people standing too close or trying to bump into you. They are after your wallets, phones and passports. I felt VERY unsafe! I will never go back!

“Good to see at night”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

it looks very good at night when the lights change and when you stand directly underneath it, it feel amazing. i went up with the lift and that didn't really take long but be careful of pick pockets. the view is outstanding. the cathedral made of marble. if you look out, it would glow and look really good.
when coming down i came with the stairs and it took about 15 mins to get down. your legs would probably hurt by the time you get down.
