Paris Eiffel Tower Tour


Eiffel Tower is the most famous icon which becomes the top list to do for every tourist in Paris, France. However, visiting Eiffel Tower isn't as easy as you thought. Paris is always overcrowded with tourists at most of the famous attraction sites throughout the year. Most of the time, you have to queue in a very long line for hours before you are able to get into the attraction sites.

In order to avoid wasting your time standing in a long queue at Eiffel Tour, you can either purchase online ticket from the official website or participate the local tour. Without reserving ticket in advance, you won't be able to get into fast lane which is reserved for tour group only.   

Eiffel Tower opens at 9:30am every day thus you need to get to Eiffel Tower ticket counter by 8:30am and begin to queue in line if you need to get ticket on the spot. Normally, the big crowd of visitors and tour groups  begin to form in a long line, from the moment the Eiffel Tower starts the daily operation hours.

Otherwise, you can purchase online ticket to Eiffel Tower in advance, from this official website here. However, the ticket reservation can be booked up to three months ahead with the list of visiting hours to choose. You need to purchase online ticket soonest possible before tickets are sold out immediately. 

If you intend to visit 2nd floor and top floor of the Eiffel Tour, you should purchase online ticket in advance or get the ticket at the counter early in the morning before the crowd of people starts to get there. DO NOT plan to purchase ticket to top floor at last minute from the 2nd floor of Eiffel Tower as the ticketing line is normally long and very crowded with visitors.

Also, the Eiffel Tower blinks at 9pm and 10pm every day. As the Eiffel Tower management plans to save energy thus, the Eiffel Tower blinks for 5 minutes only at 9pm and 10 pm respectively. Here is a short video clip:

    1. Hi Lalit, thank you for visiting my blog. Since the online tickets aren't available on the website, you can purchase the tickets at the Eiffel Tower ticket counter. You must be there as early as possible, before 8:30am and begin to queue at the counter. Don't be surprised as you won't be alone there. There are many visitors who decide to get tickets for that day, from the ticket counter early in the morning. Most of the big crowds will begin to form in the long line after 8:30am. Otherwise, you can participate in the private tour package which include a tour to Eiffel Tour and some attraction sites in Paris. You can search for the private tour packages via online. Of course, these packages aren't cheap as you need to include tipping at the end of the tour. However, on the other hand, you don't have to worry much about the trip when you engage them. Everything will be arranged accordingly by the private tour. It's highly recommended to visit in the day time to see the city of Paris :)
