What You Can Expect

Paris by Night Illuminations Tour and Paris Moulin Rouge Show

See the famous Moulin Rouge cancan dancers in action!

On your Paris by Night Illuminations Tour, you'll soon understand why Paris is known as the "City of Light" as you tour Paris' tree-lined boulevards flanked by animated cafes. You'll see the famous sights of Paris, including Concorde and Vendome Squares, Pigalle and Blanches squares, Opera, La Madeleine Church, rue Royale, Champs-Elysees, Arc de Triomphe, Trocadero, Invalides, Notre Dame Cathedral and Chatelet Square.

At the spectacular Moulin Rouge, the home of the French Cancan for more than a century, you'll sit back with your complimentary champagne and wait in anticipation for the spectacular "Feerie" show to burst onto the stage. The show features a troupe of 100 artists, including 60 legendary Doriss dancers dressed in exotic costumes of feathers, rhinestones and sequins. The show's sumptuous sets include moving staircases, a gigantic aquarium, swings and a garden setting, providing a vibrant, exciting backdrop for the brilliantly choreographed cabaret.

Book now! Moulin Rouge regularly sells out weeks in advance, so book in advance to avoid disappointment.

In Winter (Nov - March), you will usually see the first show at 9:00pm at the Moulin Rouge. However occasionally, the Moulin Rouge allocates seats to the second show at 11:00pm. In this case, you will enjoy a complimentary Seine River cruise in between the Illuminations Tour and the Show. In Summer (April - Oct), you will usually attend the 11:00pm show, if it isn't available, you will attend the 9:00pm show.

Great fun driving around seeing the sights of Paris by night. Our guide was excellent, friendly with great knowledge of this lovely city. The show at the Moulin Rouge was fantastic! Hotel pick up and drop off meant we could enjoy the evening without worrying about transport late at night.
