The Eiffel Tower is very impressive and certainly worth a visit, it is an icon. No trip advisor review would e we make one skip this spot.

So my advice is BEWARE OF PICKPOCKETS !!!!! they are very active all over Paris and particularly in places such as Eiffel Tower, Notre Dam and the Metro etc.
They approach you asking if you speak English as they are doing some sort of survey. DONT STOP talk to them. Once you do you will more than likely lose most of your valuables. While you are distracted with the survey the second person will be picking your bag / pocket THEY ARE EXPERTS.

The other trick is to drop a ring or bracelet in front of you to distract you while they go about pickpocketing you .

Don't let the presence of the armed police and soldiers put your guard down. The armed soldiers are there for the terrorist, not pickpockets.

Don't forget you can take the stairs to the 2nd level. Your belonging will be searched as everywhere in Paris.

Have fun but watch out for the petty street crime.

We thought it would be bigger! But what an amazing feat of engineering and craftsmanship! Absolutely worth the wait in the que which wasn’t very long really. And the information available on the top level was very interesting. A great day in all in beautiful city!

A little disappointed by the lines and prices to go up in the tower with 2 kids, but very happy to be able to walk underneath and all around it for free. Just like the arc de triomphe, it's hard to believe how massive this is until you're there!

You can see the whole city, it's a must visit if you go to Paris. The views are so stunning. I can NOT recommend taking the stairs.
