Taking the small 8 person tour was definitely the way to go. It costs extra but it's worth the more concentrated tour and one on one time with the guide. We arrived at the MR for the 11pm show - a bit late but worth the wait - queues were long but moved easily once inside and great seats from anywhere in the theatre. If in Paris this is a MUST DO!
What a good way to get to Moulon Rouge and what a bonus to be dropped back at the apartment afterwards - something we were unaware of when we booked - would recommend this method to others.
Apart from the crowds at the show it was a highlight of our trip
Our diver was very friendly and took another guest in the van safe and on time to the show, so he was there to pick us on time too!
The show... fantastic! I recommend it as a must when you visit Paris and Viator Tours did a great work!
The tour guide, bus, sights show and service could not have been better. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
Very well organised and showing you all important landmarks in Paris tour is a real must. Moulin Rouge show was fab! We had a fantastic night!
The lights were great and the show was outstanding. The transportation service was an added plus.
Great Illumination Tour of Paris and Spectacular Moulin Rouge Show. A very enjoyable evening.
Fantastic evening! Really well organized, good interesting coach tour, great timing for the show and anyone who says it isn't worth the money has no sense of fun. Dazzling, energetic, colorful - loved every minute and the ventriloquist was the funnest act I've ever seen! Coach took us back to our hotel saving worry of getting across Paris at midnight. Memorable night!
It was a perfect evening, so well organized. Paris by night was stunning and the show very professional. Unfortunately the coach got us to the Moulin Rouge rather late which meant we had the last seats in the house. The seating arrangements were rather cramped. Should have 6 people on the table not 8 !!
The 5 stars rating is for the Moulin Rouge show. Absolutely worth the money. We sat with 2 other couples at a table, and had 2 bottles of champagne to share among us. We regretted checking in our coats (2euros per person) as there was a long queue to collect our items after the show. Would have skipped The Paris by Night Illuminations Tour had I known it to be so boring. We sat in a moving coach, and listened to the audio guide as the coach moved along the streets. Paris was a dead town during Christmas Day, as most of the stores were closed, and basically it was dark everywhere. I noticed several passengers who dozed off during the tour. Perhaps this tour would have been better on other regular evenings.
Wonderful time tour before show great and moulin show great as well second time i have done the show.
We enjoyed the night time trip around Paris showing the highlights. The visit to Moulin Rouge was excellent, just a little rushed getting in on time after the night tour. Maybe a Moulin Rouge Show trip on its own would be better.
I totally enjoyed the night illuminations tour and the Moulin Rouge show! The seating at the Moulin Rouge show is cramped, but I knew this before booking so it wasn't a surprise. We were suppose to go on a Sunday night but I became sick just a couple of hours before the show, but Viator was great and rebooked for later in the week with no problems. We also did the boat tour as well since our rebooked show was for the 11pm show, and it was great. Overall very happy with the tours and the Moulin Rouge show, and Viator Customer Service was excellent!!
