See the "City of Light" 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. 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.

Excellent guide

The guide Neda was wonderful She had a wealth of information as we drove by the lit sights. I loved seeing the city and sights at night all lit up.

Adrien took us and a small family around Paris that evening and gave us a lot of interesting info on Paris and the sites. Just make sure you google the address for meeting the tour. It was a little hard to find but we made it in time.
Need to talk to a representative asap

Please email me directly. Need to talk to someone about this tour. Not a good experience to say the least!
It’s better to start earlier.
, Sep 2018
Some of the tourists of the group agreed that the tour should start at 9pm when it gets dark early, because you always have to wait for some of the group that arrive late causing delays at the start. In order not to affect the trajectory of the tour, we ended up late and those of us who stayed outside the city had to hurry because the subway stops at 1pm. For the rest I give it 5, the guide was friendly and gave us extensive information of Paris, interacted with the group answering questions, the itinerary of the tour was magnificent and we all loved it. The staff of the agency, very friendly and everything was well organized.

In summer the sunset happens post 9.30 and it gets dark only around 10 pm. We wanted to get a feel of all the attractions illuminated in dark and then chose to be at 1 or 2 the next night. This tour served that purpose.

I would not recommend that anyone spend the money on this tour. Although we were able to get a great picture of the Eiffel Tower at night it was certainly not worth the time or money. I was very disappointed in the audio prepared for the tour. Most of it was music filling up dead space and there were times it didn't sync with the sights we were seeing. They could very easily have fillled in that time with historical facts or anecdotes.
