Eiffel Tower visit on June 10th week, what is the best time..early am or sunset?

Hello! We are spending few days in Paris mid June and I wanted to ask for an advice. what time is better to get to the Eiffel Tower's summit? Early am or around sunset? I am about to reserve a slot online..Couple of years ago we were in France and mid June was notably hot..like close to 100 F. just read some reviews on Flat Tire tours and someone said it was a mess around sunset..
any ideas? thank you!

As a photographer, I would rather go for sunset (or the 1-2 hours before sunset) than early AM hours.
The Eiffel tower is in the West of Paris, so you have better light if you want to take pictures of the central parts of Paris.
Assuming that there will be sunshine, and not clouds and rain, of course.
This does not take into account any other factors, of course, like lesser or bigger crowds at certain times.. but I guess others will know that.

Thank you! I just checked with some Parisians and they said its better to go in pm because of the tower due west of the city and we won't be blinded by the sun as if it's the case in am hrs.. so much to think of before committing to buy tix

I have never reserved a slot since I am not sure it will not be raining or ..
i climb the stairs there is never a large queue as a lot of fit people prefer to wait hours than to climb.

Wouldn't it depend on where you were taking photos?
From Trocadero versus Ecole Militaire?
