Great place to see a different view Easy to goReviewed by: Michael J P, January 2014
We were lucky to have a sunny/cloudy morning for our visit. Enjoyed it more than Eiffel Tower. Entrance a bit hard to find. Views were fantastic we all felt better views and ambience than Eiffel Tower. The enclosed viewing area had a very bad smell which was not at all pleasant - rotten eggs. The gift shop had better items and keener prices than Eiffel Tower. We were all glad we had gone to this tower and at half the price of Eiffel Tower I'd so this tower and just photograph Eiffel Tower.Reviewed by: Greta M, April 2014

well worth the money, great views of paris from the 56th floor observation deck, plus can also go up to the 59th floor on the roof of the montparnasse tower for even better viewsReviewed by: kevin m, January 2014
Overall this was a little disappointing from what I was expecting. The observation deck gives you a great panoramic view of Paris. You can get really good shots of the Eiffel Tower as well, however I'm glad I went to the Trocadero because I think my Eiffel Tower pics came out better from there. We actually took a cab to the Tower and if you don't enter the building at the correct entrance (which I did not see marked) you get turned around and don't bother asking for directions because the security guard was no help. We were a bit disappointed because going to the 59th floor is only accessible by stairs and my mom was not able to walk them. I wish I would have known this before because we really wanted to go to the restaurant up there, instead of the grab and go snack bar on the 56th floor. Like I said if you want a good panoramic view of Paris and don't want to deal with the lines or the elements (if its really cold or rainy) of the Eiffel Tower, then take this trip. Lots of interactive stuff for kids, seems like a good place to bring them. Just not what I expected.Reviewed by: Jackie D, January 2014
