Must do if in Paris, Well worth getting skip the line tickets before travelling as ques can get lengthy. Best Views of Pairs from the summit

very easy to get to this iconic landmark by either metro or indeed all public transport,queues are always long so make sure to expect to have a long wait at least 1 hour and possibly a lot longer,but worth it for the view.

Tower is busy ALL day when you are there be very careful with handbags .wallets etc.. It is really busy and we spotted a couple of guys getting close to tourists while they were watching the street performers,Its not dangerous or threatening you just need to be on your gaurd.

Our family of 5 took a tour of the Eiffel Tower with Fat Tire Tour Group. The second floor views of Paris were amazing and even better with the history of each monument being described. Make sure to use your distance lens for your camera. What an amazing iron structure built for the World Fair in the late 1800's. Then we took a ride to the summit. Wow. That was freaky and not for the faint of heart, but so worth the experience.

We couldn't get a ticket online so we will have to get it on the spot. We knew that the queue will be very long so we went early the first thing in the morning at 9 am with our bottles of water and biscuits. Luckily it only took us 30 minutes in queue until we managed to buy a ticket to the summit. Then you can get to choose either to go up by the elevator or by the stairs to level 2. Then you will still need to queue again to get to the summit. Up the summit, when you are done taking pictures and enjoyed the view, you need to queue again to go down. Overall, it took us a total of 3 hours just to go up and down the Eiffel tower plus viewing the scene. Tiring as it was, there was no tinge of regret! I would do it all over again just to take another look at the magnificent view of Paris on top!

Caution: during the queue some people will try to cut the queue and if they don't succeed then you will constantly be pushed forward as what have happened to us. Beware of pickpockets and also there will be people coming to you to ask if you speak English and have you sign some kind of paper or try to sell you things, just say no and walk away from them. Nevertheless, have fun!
