Paris Lights Evening Tour with Optional Hotel Pick-Up

    What to Expect
    See the City of Lights come to life on this Paris tour at night, which takes you past the city’s most iconic landmarks, made even more beautiful with their twinkling lights. You’ll see plazas and wide boulevards such as Place Vendôme, Place de la Concorde, and the Champs-Elysées. Drive along the Rue de Rivoli to the Louvre, and catch sight of Notre-Dame, the Grand Palais, Petit Palais, and Hôtel de Ville.

    See the Opera house, Arc de Triomphe, Les Invalides, Madeleine Church, and Place Pigalle. Cross the Pont Neuf into the St.-Germain-des- Près neighborhood on the other side of the Seine. Of course, a Paris illuminations tour wouldn't be complete without a nighttime view of the Eiffel Tower from Trocadéro, a photo op you don’t want to miss.

    Pickup and drop-off locations and commentary depend on the tour you select when booking. The standard tour by 50-passenger coach starts and ends at a central location in Paris and includes recorded commentary via audio headsets. The small-group minivan tour is limited to just eight passengers and includes live narration by an onboard guide, as well as hotel pickup and drop-off.

    The bus was nice, the audio fine, but there were almost no lights! I thought everything would be lit up! I really wished we had toured the city in the daylight. I feel like we missed out on our chance to tour Paris, as this was the only your we did.

    Would not recommend this tour. Driver was very nice but did not speak English very well and was extremely difficult to understand. We drove around seemingly in circles in this foul smelling van, passing the same sites repeatedly. The driver pointed out sites as we passed but

    Dear RichJW, We are sorry to read about your experience. Ou tour is not designed to allow customers to take pictures on the way. It is not a hop on hop off bus tour, but an experience of the city. We are surprised to read about the level of English of our guide and the lack of cleanliness of our van. Those two subjects are part of the main priorities of our company. We will transfer your feedback to our teams so they can investigate your case. We hope you still had a good time in Paris. Best Regards, Alexia

    Before their merge(??) we had taken this tour (11 times) through Cityrama and always enjoyed it. This time (via Pariscityvision) we were taken advantage of and the company failed to deliver what was promised. We were chaperoning 2 teens while their parents enjoyed a lovely

    This cruise down the Seine was our best investment. It was very reasonable and extremely enjoyable. We would do it again in a minute! It is beautiful and you can choose to hear the history from headphones or just see the beautiful views and enjoy the lovely music. It was
