Seine River Cruise and Paris Illuminations Tour

3.5
It’s no wonder they call it the City of Lights — Paris is especially enchanting in the evening. On this illuminations tour, admire top Paris attractions from two perspectives, starting with a lamp-lit cruise along the Seine past the Eiffel Tower and Notre Dame. Then take a nighttime city tour to see the Champs-Elysées, l’Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, the Grand Palais, Rue de Rivoli and much more (itinerary is reversed in the winter). Choose a standard coach tour or small-group minivan tour for a more personalized experience.

    This was a lovely way to spend our first night in Paris. Recommend you sit on the top deck. We were able to get a brilliant view of the Eiffel Tower during its light show so well worth it.

    Great way to see Paris by night. We preferred the river cruise to the bus tour but overall it was very good - well organised and punctual.

    The river cruise portion was a nice experience. The driving part so our tour was wonderful our driver/guide went over and above to show us all the great night time sights. Well worth the extra money for a small group tour.

    This was an excellent boat ride! We were able to see most of the famous landmarks at night from the boat. The bus tour was nice but depending on where you are sitting, you may not see a lot. I definitely recommend it.
