The iconic Eiffel Tower, it’s pretty dang big and very cool to see in person. If you can, spend the extra 25 euros and take the elevator all the way to the top. Beautiful views of the whole city and you can play “spot all...More

We learned so much about her (the Eiffel Tower), thanks is to our tour guide (booked through Viator). The view from the second level was amazing. The third level (the summit) was likely a not-to-be-missed experience. Lines/people moved fairly quickly and ORGANIZED. We were very...More

Incredible experience. It would have saved a lot of time if we bought tickets before going, only two ticket counters were open so the line took about 90mins.

The view from the summit is very good. I would recommend buying a ticket online earlier - it's worth because you avoid the crowd. The night show is very nice and during my stay, there were Japanese nights - it was incredible.

Walking up to the Eiffel Tower I was surprised there was water and a lovely park. The grounds were covered with street venders and tourists which added to the flavor of the experience. The tower is an incredible structure to look at from all angles....More

We rode the elevator up at 9:00 p.m. to the 2nd level and enjoyed incredible Paris City Lights. My husband went the extra distance to the summit and had to wait a very long time to get the elevator back down to the 2nd level....More

Born and raised in Paris, it is always a pleasure to visit the Eiffel tower! The only down is passing security which takes a long time so be prepared but it is worth the wait once up there :)

Enjoyed a lot. Got the tour from aviator to skip the line and use group entry. Well worth it. Great view of the city and guide was informative.
