I took advice from friends to book before leaving aus and to do skip the line tour for Eiffel Tower. It was worth every cent as the queues went for at least a kilometre.And to top it off we had an excellent guide Anya who not only entertained us but her knowledge of French history was valuable.She also pointed out the main attractions from the tower as we walked around.This also got us a pass to the very top.

This is definitely a must do while is Paris! There are two options, either you go to the first platform by stairs or elevator or you go to top platform by elevator. Be AWARE there are a lot of pocket pickers! You have to be looking around, put your backpack on the front and your things on the front pocket. The elevator and the lines can get crowded. The best way it is to start from Trocadero and walk down towards the tower.

Because it's different, because it's classic. It's for the people. Elitists hated it because it looked industrial, working class. Don't miss it's lights at 10pm, 11pm, and midnight.

Loved walking up the stairs for just a small fee. The views were amazing. The Light show at night was great too. A must do!

Would a bad review even turn anyone off doing this? You HAVE to go to the summit, the views cannot be matched anywhere else. You can even get a plastic glass of champagne on the top for €12, which to me was another must, just because you can. Pickpocketers and sneaky children everywhere in the area though, so be careful.
