The Eiffel tower is somehow overrated. But it is still worth it going there. Due to terrorism alert access is controlled and you can't just walk freely under the tower anymore. Going up is an expensive option and can be a long wait. The views are much better from the Montparnasse tower (Tour de Montparnasse) but if you have never... More

À Parisien classic, always nice to climb it. À bit crowdy but it is always fun to go. The Trocadéro area is just awazing, wonderfull district of Paris. À must-go for tourists.

I love the feeling when I walk upon the tower. It feels like I'm in a movie or show. I love the military presence near the tower in order to protect the visitors and locals.

We were late by 5 min cause of stopped train. No line at tower h. Bad idea to pre book. Guide was snotty & unaccommdating. You have to walk to a tourist trap to pick up your tickets. Bad choice

I took the Viator "tour". It's not really a tour, you just buy the ticket through them. It's a skip the line ticket which could save significant time, I was happy about it. Enjoyed the trip immensely, went to the top, had to change elevators half way up, and it was cold and windy on the top (but worth it... More

It is something worth of... The only problem are crowds of turists which are going to be larger and larger due to security measures. In february 2017, whole area was blocked by fence due to deratisation....

Loved visiting this famous icon. Annoying to have to be constantly on guard from the pick pockters and the handbag grabbers. Enjoyed the general buzz of the place with the street vendors very active, almost aggressive.

Eiffel Tower is the highlight of Paris and should be a part of any itinerary to Paris. Especially at night, when the lights dazzle and gives it an eclectic look. It is cheaper to pay 5 Euros and walk up to the mid level and take in the breathtaking view of Paris from that level. Cruise along the Seine River... More
