Seeing the lights was magical. The blanket was a nice souvenir. Would recommend the tea as hot beverage.

Very cold but amazing sights that were so pretty. They also made sure they were near the Eifell tower when it twinkled. We were provided with a thin blanket which we took home as a souvenir but extra warm clothing is a must

Kind of badly organized as it was chaotic figuring out which bus we were supposed to board, and we did not start the tour until 6:30pm, which could be a problem if you have dinner reservations. That said, it was worth it for the amazing photo ops of the lit up Eiffel Tower and other sights.

Firstly, it was a nightmare trying to find our tour operator. I tried to contact a VIATOR operator telephonically but was not able to. Extremely disappointed and will not recommend or use VIATOR AGAIN!!!

I have made several bookings with VIATOR and I am not happy with the service I have received.

This was one of the best tours my family has taken. It completed a very busy day.

The Paris Christmas lights were TERRIFIC and the tour outstanding. It would have been helpful to CLEARLY MARK the fact that we needed more than just our voucher. That it needed to be exchanged at the tour office for tickets. We waited in line for 30 minutes and then had to get out of the line, go back and wait in another 20 minute line to exchange the voucher for tickets and then get back in line. There was nothing to indicate that we had to exchange the voucher. As a matter of fact the voucher as it reads, seems to indicate nothing more was necessary. It wasn't the end of the world, but would have been great to know! Otherwise ... tour itself... magnificent!

This tour was good in many ways, it took in a great part of the city, but should not be sold as a Christmas Lights Tour. Maybe, maybe the first 15 minutes were related to Christmas lights as far as the tour was concerned not the music which was all Christmas, not verbal commentary by the way. The balance of the tour was a traffic filled tour of the city I could have walked through with less time, especially since the weather was not that cold.

Good trip, well planned but it was raining which unfortunatley spoilt sitting on the top of the bus, we were advised we could not change to another day which we suggest if it is raining consideration should be given to those who want to change their date.

Very disappointing tour. Not many lights on show and I felt sorry for parents with kids on this tour. We left half an hour late too. Best part was being close to Eiffel Tower when the coloured lights came on. Can't recommend this tour.

Beyond amazing the lights in Paris brought everything Christmas out plus got see the market well worth it ... the only thing I would say have more buses ready quicker it's cold to wait outside that long
