The woman at the desk was SUPER UNFRIENDLY. I am a tourist and I wanted to jump into the wheel to see the city. Sadly she couldn't or didn't wanted to speak English, German, Spanish or Portuguese. That's very stupid if you are working in...More

I'll admit, I expected this to be something of a tourist trap. However, this is not the case. On a clear day the wheel provides fabulous views, by night the wheel is a wonderful way to admire the City of Lights. 12 euro per person...More

Stumbled across this on a rainy evening and I'm glad I did. There was no queue at that time. Desk staff were not the friendliest but the two operators were approachable and humorous. They were even kind enough to give us an extra rotation. Well...More

Really well organised and a wonderful way to see the city. Whether by day or by night, Paris always has awesome views. Book in advance to avoid too much queueing, but of course, you'll still have queue a little anyway.

Quite touristy, but very close to metro subway, the Lourve museum and a fun fair for kids. A 10 minute ride and cash only.

The giant wheel, while not being particularly attractive is still easy on the eye, especially if views from the Tuileries gardens.

After a walk through the park we decided to jump on the ferris wheel. From an attraction, it was interesting, they funneled you in and out - keeping each cart full and the line moving. There isn't much room to look both ways - so...More

12€ and you get a couple of rounds on this ferris wheel. It's slow paced and intended towards enjoying the views. You can see the Louvre through the tuileries garden on one side and Arc de triomphe through champs elysees on the other. Place Dell...More

OK, OK, yes, it's touristy, but so what? It is a great way to see all of Paris at once. You get a few turns of the wheel so can get several different views. Only thing, it's hard to get good pictures because the bars...More

This was a spur of the moment thing to do. For 12€ you get a pretty good view of the city and surrounds, with some great photo opportunities. Would be lively at night time.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or
