What You Can Expect

Seine River Cruise, Paris Illuminations and Dinner on the Champs-Elysees

Boat cruising down the Seine, Paris

See Paris after dark by both land and water on this Seine cruise and sightseeing combo tour. After all, the best time to experience the famed attractions of the City of Lights is when the lights are on.

Your tour starts with your cruise along the Seine River, where you can admire illuminated landmarks like the Eiffel Tower and pass under the city’s many bridges. Then switch to your coach to explore Paris’ tree-lined avenues dotted with lively cafes full of Parisians doing what they do best—eating and enjoying life. See major sights like Place de la Concorde, Place Vendome, the Opera House, Arc de Triomphe, Trocadero, Les Invalides, Place du Chatelet and Notre-Dame.

Afterward, head to your reserved table at Chez Clement, a restaurant overlooking the Arc de Triomphe on the Champs-Elysees. See below for a sample menu of the French dishes that make up your 3-course meal. One glass of wine is included.

We had such a fantastic night in Paris using this tour package. We had toured around the sights of Paris during the day for a number of days and this was the icing on the cake. Everything looks so much better when it is alight.

We very much enjoyed the bus tour. The drivers and ticket era were extremely helpful and the buses came frequently enough there wasn't much waiting. Would do again!
