It was raining like crazy all day then fog and rain at night. BUT...the place is well suited to wide observation of Paris. It really is way up. Clean, comfortable, easy to get to on Paris Metro, well staffed and has an attractive snack bar at top. The restrooms were spotless. SOmetimes the fog drifted away and parts of Paris were visible - and they were spectacular. So get a clear night and have fun. Recommended.
We enjoyed this very much, and the view was absolutely beautiful. Wish the weather would have been nicer but still worth the look. Keep in mind that you don't have to go the date of the ticket. The ticket is good any day you wish to go. I believe you have about 6 months.
We went in March so it wasn't busy. Its further out in relation to other attractions around the city but worth it and easy to get to on the metro.
We had booked ahead online, it wouldn't have been a problem to buy a ticket on the day because there was no queue but I can imagine its wise to book ahead in summer when its busier.
Going up in the lift makes your ears pop!
There's two viewing areas-one inside with a café, gift, toilets etc and is warmer! You get to the other viewing platform by going up some stairs and outside. Its mostly sheltered with gaps in the glass to allow for better photo taking. The view is incredible!
There was some seating, it wasn't busy but I can imagine in summer there not being enough if you wanted to spend a bit of time up there to enjoy the view.
The overall experience of booking online, getting there and going up the tower was easy and enjoyable. This is definitely something I would do again at a different time of year to get a different perspective of Paris and will recommend to people as a must do attraction during their stay.
Absolutely recommend a trip up to the Montparnasse.. unlike most other things in Paris its very reasonably priced and the views are amazing.
Was a lovely end to our busy romantic weekend in Paris , took a 9.30pm trip up here on a Sunday eve with champagne to watch the fantastic 10pm light show of the Eiffel tower. We practically had the tower to ourselves!
We didn't go to the observation deck as it was very cold and the champagne bar is closed in winter which we weren't advised of but the cafe serves champers and snacks and is just as amazing
Highly recommend and also the little pizzeria across the street.. pizza pinto, which served us up an amazing dinner with wine breads pasta and pizzas at midnight on a sunday night.. perfect end to our manic weekend !
The Montparnasse tour was amazing, we had it almost to ourselves both inside and outside in the roof.
We had uninterrupted views of the whole of Paris and the Eiffel Tower below us. We would recommend having the champagne which made it really special.

I booked this months before leaving and once I got to Paris I felt a little lazy about going right across the city to go to this.
Well, I did go and it was worth it.
It was quite easy enough to find the cashier and they gave us vouchers to the top and to the champagne bar on top for our champagne.
There were no line ups of crowds, so straight up and what a view..And you get a great view of the Eiffel Tower in all its glory which you don't get if you are UP the ET.
There was plenty of room for everyone up there and no squashing to get a view.
There's a nice café up there as well as a small gift shop with nice items for sale.
Then up the staircase to the open air platform which houses some reclining lounges and the champagne bar.
I honestly thought that the champagne would be crap / inferior stuff that is usually plied to tourists but this was really nice French champagne..
We lounged around enjoying our drinks with the view and had a thoroughly wonderful experience to my surprise. The enjoyed the stroll back to St Germain to rekindle fond memories ..What a day..
View from 59th floor was breathtaking and we were in time to see the 7pm Eiffel Tower light show, amazing. We had champaigne on the roof top, but the young lady serving was unsure about the ñibbles which were included. We did speak to the wonderful lady in the small restaurant on floor 56 who provided exceptional service with nibbles for our group of 8. Lift goes to floor 56 and then you climb stairs to level 59. If stairs are too difficult, the view is still brilliant from floor 56. We visited on 28th October 2015 and it was quite cold on the rooftop as expected for this time of the year.

Great vantage point to see all of Paris, plus you can see the Eiffel tower instead of looking out from it.
A great way to relax after a busy day by watching the Hong Kong Skyline
Amazing. So glad we got to see Paris from this side. We arrived early evening, enjoyed a bite to eat at the cafe and the views from that level. Then we made our way to the top were the view was outstanding. Had a glass of champagne and watched Paris turn into night. Beautiful.

Had a lovely view of Paris , including the Eiffel Tower. You could use the voucher any time you chose. We went up in the late afternoon and stayed until sunset. Not too crowded and you could have a glass of wine , sit down and take in the view.
Worth the money.. you can see the whole landscape of Paris. It was really windy up on the deck so we were shivering while waiting for the lights on Eiffel Tower to come up
Excellent trip. I have toured the tower many times, but it was the first for my friends. Excellent service and speedy entry for handicaps.
A great option for an alternative way to experience the total view of Paris . The ticket allows you to just nominate a day you will visit, without locking you into a set time. We chose sunset, and were able to sit in comfortable chairs with a glass of Champagne to watch the city light up.
Wonderful view. We arrived just before sunset and enjoyed the view in the daylight and then enjoyed all the lights of the city.
This is the most amazing view of Paris!! I loved it!
Great value for money. Super 360 degree views of Paris and being far less crowded than Tour Eiffel gave much better opportunities to take landscape and personal photos.
I enjoyed doing this, even though it wasn't a tour as such. Had great views of Paris and spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower. Thoroughly enjoyed my glass of Champagne watching the sun go down, lights take over and the light show at the Eiffel Tower. Would recommend.
Fantastic view of Paris made easy with the pre-purchase of this ticket.
Beautiful view of Paris. Worth visiting just before dusk to also watch the lights in the city come on. Nice snacks available at the cafe.
