Review

Review: The highlight of the day was seeing the sunset from the top of the Eiffel tower.

I would highly recommend to go up there close to sunset because the low sun covers the entire city in a golden veil.

Extra Tip: Take the elevator to the middle section of the tower and book your tickets in advance so you can skip the ques

Review

Review: As for the Eiffel Tower it is really worth to buy entry passes for the Louvre Museum and the Tour Montparnasse in advance.

You will save some money with special deals and you can skip the line!

Also: We went up to the 56th floor of the Tour Montparnasse just before sunset which gave us the opportunity to look over the whole city at night with a million lights and the shining Eiffel Tower.

Review: First stop on the food tour, our food is pre selected and we were offered up Icelandic meat soup and Viking White Beer all included in the price. The meat soup is a recipe that changes daily so you will never have the same! Was delicious and a great start to warm up.
