Need help to reserve tickets to EIFFEL TOWER

Jump to last reply

I need help on the process to reserve tickets to ascend the Eiffel Tower. I realize that tickets only go on sale 90 days prior to the date requested at 8:30am on that date and that they sell out FAST!
So --last night I stayed up until 1:30am USA time to have the first opportunity. (Paris is 7 hours ahead of central time). I attempted without success until 2:45am , gave up and went to bed. All time slots are gone for May 8 so I now must try for Friday, May 9.

Here is what I did:
1) clicked - ascend to summit - selected May 8 and the number of tickets
2) the available times came up and I clicked 10:30 (not my first choice which was already
taken 5 minutes after opening!)
3)Here is where the problem arose.
I needed to enter a cell phone number (mandatory). Does anyone know the
PROPER FORMAT OF A USA CELL NUMBER?

I entered SEVERAL DIFFERENT METHODS - NONE WORKED.
They said I need to establish an account, chose a password etc...
I did all this chose USA as the country, gave e-mail etc. -NO RESULTS!

A message in red appeared: The field "mobile phone" is not well formatted.
WHAT IS THE PROPER FORMAT FOR A CELL PHONE NUMBER IN USA?

I put in: +1 (xxx) xxx xxxx THIS DID NOT WORK.

Many many thanks to anyone who can answer promptly. I will attempt again at 1:30am when tickets go on sale for May 9.
