I think this tour was much better the the Paris hop off hop on tour. I have done the hop off hop on bus tour all over the world and Paris takes last place. So this tour was a wonderful alternative. Highly recommended. However, most of the trip is in the light. My favorite parts was the arc de triomphe, Louvre hotel, and the e tower. The bus is quite nice but we got the 2nd floor front row seats. I would hurry to get these seats because if you get stuck in the back, it may be less appealing.
tour was brillaint..seeing the effiel tower lit up at night was well wroth it..that is definately a must see!!
Great night, got back to the eiffle tower just as they were doing the light show
The bus tour was a great chance to gain some knowledge of the city, but taking pictures through the bus windows was pretty difficult. The boat tour was my favorite part because we were able to be right near the Eiffel Tour when it lights up on the hour.
We had an evening flight layover in Paris. This tour gave us our "Taste of Paris". We are already making plans to return for a true visit to Paris. Seeing the Eiffel Tower sparkling at night was an aahhh moment
The tour was excellent, with all the great, beautiful buildings of Paris on display with backround information from knowledgeable guides.
The illuminations tours and the Seine River Cruise were amazing. A definite must-see and must-do while in Paris.
Very nice tour. Beautiful lights and an amazing way to see the monuments all lit up. The commentary was great as well to explain what everything was. The timing was planned so perfect for the take off of the boat. The Eiffel Tower lit up and sparkled for us as we left and then as we returned it was glowing again in all the different colors. A BEAUTIFUL tour.
As we only booked this two days before we traveled, we were unsure if everything would go to plan but it couldn't have been easier. We found the pickup point really easy and got on the coach straight away. The boat trip was lovely. Even my teenage children loved it. To see the beautiful buildings lit up at night was wonderful.The tour afterward was equally good. We would thoroughly recommend it.
I really enjoyed this little trip, it was a great way to start the holiday and see the sights from a different perspective, the only downside was people continually standing up in front of you spoiling the view for many others. The illuminations tour by bus after the boat trip was quite interesting too.
We arrived in Paris on Saturday afternoon and after checking in to our hotel we freshened up and walked the few blocks to the tour office. The boat ride on the Seine was great. The weather was clear and not too hot. The cruise began at 800PM while there is still sunlight and lasted for about two hours. We returned to the pier near the Eiffel tower and boarded a bus for the illumination tour. The Illumination tour was excellent! Paris is a completely different city by night. Would recommend this tour combination to anyone who wants to get an overall Paris experience.
Well organized and very friendly from beginning to end. Enjoyed every minute of the evening.
I was so impressed by how the trip was so carefully organized. With the long summer days, I didn't know what would be "illuminated" at such an early hour. The tour is perfectly planned. You take a cruise along the Seine at dusk. You are let off at the Eiffel Tower where we had about 40 minutes to gaze at the tower and grab a quick bite. By sundown we were jumping on a comfy bus right by the Eiffel Tower and treated to a twinkling tour and auditory history and information of the major sites. The driver and guide were so careful to stop at the perfect angles for photo opportunities - so bring your camera! They would even turn twice to make sure both sides of the bus got good views. My friend joined me and he is from Amsterdam. I listened to the English audio as he listened to the Dutch version! This trip is worth the small price. It was raining on my trip, yet it was still breathtaking!!
My nieces and I went on the Seine River Cruise and paris Illuminations Tour on July 5, 2009 and we all enjoyed it. It was well run and we saw most of the major sights in Paris and I recommended it 2 friends who are going to Paris this summer. Thank you very much.
River cruise was wonderful. Leisurely, great views. Bus tour needs stops for photo opportunities.
A waste of money, had to fight the crowd to get onto river cruise. Bus group separated.
It was wonderful. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see Paris at night.
