Christmas in France or Paris is memorable and magical because the whole city is light-filled :-)
A well thought out tour, and with ponchos provided since it was a bit wet which I found really thoughtful. Had the weather been clear, I can see that this would have been a really nice night! A beautiful way to see a beautiful city.
Great tour if the weather is good- I can see how it could be a miserable experience if it was raining. We bundled up with hats, gloves and scarves and were very comfortable throughout the evening tour. The company itself is not very organized. The front desk for check-in, as well as the buses out front, did not have any clear lines or signage. Made for a lot of pushing and shoving to get into the bus, but once we were on board I really enjoyed the spectacular city lights. All in all, I would recommend this tour- the holiday sparkle of the city would be a shame to miss.
Excellent concept - great way to see the City of Lights at Christmas time.
The trip was good. However, it was raining and it was an open-top bus, so we could not really enjoy. It would have been better if they had provided ponchos (the blankets were useful but were not helping in the rain). Also, we did not drive on Champs Elysees and by Arch de Triumph :(
I was disappointed in not having a personal tour guide, but having to listen to the headset the whole time. The sites we saw were awesome, just not what I was looking for.
Tour is awesome... however be careful to chose the right night, it can be pretty cold, and the blankets are not that warm.
the lights are an amazing sight though, and its well worth the cold to take the tour...
Wasn't too highly impressed with this tour..would recommend the normal hop off and hop on tour if you want to cover the same areas which this tour takes..disappointed that we couldn't even watch the Eiffel tower illumination on this tour..
overall ok, nothing too fancy!
Total bust. We waited in traffic for 40 minutes less than a block from where we started. The traffic was so bad they had to divert us along streets that had no lights other than street lights. large sections were skipped due to the terrible gridlock. We couldn't wait to get off the bus!
Not worth doing. No information which related to Christmas or the history of any of the lighting. Most of the time the audio guide wasn't even working, just repeated Christmas Carols.
There were not as many xmas lights as we had anticipated and there was a tremendous amount of holiday traffic. I felt as if we sat in traffic most of the tour. The blankets were not "warm" and it was a particularly cold nite. Also my daughter needed to use the restroom and the staff was not very polite.
