Eiffel Tower: Our Tips

Avoiding the queues

As you know, Paris is quite the popular holiday destination. Plan ahead if you want to jump around and see the Eiffel Tower from lots of angles. It's easy to buy tickets online and go straight to the top -- but if you're looking to do Paris on the cheap, remember to plan waiting time at major monuments into your itinerary.

Watch your stuff

Lots of travelers are looking for a cafe or restaurant nearby these views, where they can relax and regroup away from the crowds. While all the major tourist areas are safe enough, tourists tend to let their guard down as soon as they order a café au lait. As always, zip up your purse and watch out for thieves.

Skip the Line: Eiffel Tower Summit, Louvre, and Cruise Reviewed by A. Setiawan, 01/15/2017

combining the 2 saved us money and got the time slot

the eifffel tour had a short 5 minute walk from the meeting point. stephanie the guide gave us some interesting facts about the tour. after getting to 2nd deck you were on your own. a great deal and afterwards the river cruise was relaxing.

Skip the line... Take your time... and Enjoy!

Well worth it to skip the line for Eiffel Tower and make it to the top! Our guide was enthusiastic and very informative. There's alot to explore about the tower so we spent most of our day there. Good thing is after our guide finished the rest of the package is at your own pace, which is great when traveling with little kids. The River Cruise is right next to the Eiffel Tower so we were able to catch it in the afternoon and that was great. Option to take tour outside and go inside once it got too cold. We visited the Louvre the next day, and made the mad dash to see the Mona Lisa, but one day really isn't enough for this magnicent museum. We had a chance to have a meal and pastries at Le Café Richelieu - Angelina... really good! We'll work it!!!

Great price, lovely attractions, well worth booking.

Really easy to find meeting spot, tour guide led us to the Eiffel Tower, no problems at all. We were up to the 2nd floor in no time at all with our fast track tickets which we were glad to have! Stunning views even just from the 2nd floor of the tower, great experience. We did the river cruise the next day, the tickets allow you to use them up to a couple of days after which is handy if you're staying a few days. Basically see all the sights from down the river and back, can't complain. The only issue I'd say here is you can only listen to the tour guide underneath via headphones and not when on the upper deck (a shame because this is where you'd want to be to see all the sights and get some good photos). Would definitely recommend this tower and seine cruise to anyone visiting Paris in the future.

tres bien et merci Dries! Het was heel plezant ;-)

Why is the meeting point at a random building? I saw all the tourist looking around and doubting where it was. Trying to ring a doorbell etc. Especially when you have to wait in the cold or rain it is not a good place to start. Maybe inside a cafe? Opposite the street? and arrange a reduction on the coffee ;-) Our guide was nice!
