Your Paris by night experience starts with a sightseeing tour, which takes you past the City of Light’s most popular landmarks including the Arc de Triomphe and Ile de Cité. On board either a 50-person coach or an 8-seater minivan, depending on option selected when booking, travel through the twinkling city to admire it in its illuminated glory.

Start at a central departure point (coach tour) or with pickup at your hotel (minivan tour), and take off down Paris’ tree-lined avenues dotted with bustling cafes. Pass by Place de la Concorde, Place Vendome and Place Pigalle, and see the Opera House, La Madeleine Church, the Champs-Elysées, Rue Royale, the Trocadero, Les Invalides, Chatelet Square, and the Eiffel Tower.

Then head up to Montmartre, where the Moulin Rouge stands proud with its iconic windmill lighting up the lively neighborhood. Take a seat and settle in with a provided glass of Champagne while ‘Feerie’ begins. This French revue features 100 artists, including 60 dancers known as Doriss Girls, who take the stage in glittery feathered costumes. They dance the cancan on vibrant sets that include moving staircases, swings and an aquarium. When the show is over, you are returned to your original departure point.

Please note: In the winter season (Nov - March), this tour typically includes the first show at the Moulin Rouge. On occasion, however, the theater allocates seats to the second show. In this case, you enjoy a complimentary Seine River cruise between the illuminations tour and the show. During the summer season (April - Oct), this tour typically includes the second show, but if it isn't available, you see the first show.

Great tour guide
, Dec 2019
I had the friendliest tour guide and the show was amazing! It's a must do while in Paris! I missed the show the first time I went, but I'm so glad that I did it this time.
Very good tour and show

It was really good. The tour guide was excellent. The show was good. The only issue was the taxi driver almost getting in road rage fight.
A Nighttime Classic!

Due to the availability of tickets and the crowds in Pigalle/Montmartre, the tour seemed to be the most efficient way to go. The nighttime tour before the show afforded the opportunity to see Paris at its most romantic best.
Awesome, but a late night
, Aug 2019
The tour of Paris by Night was spectacular. It was great seeing the monuments all lit up! The Moulin Rouge show was more than I expected! Be sure to eat dinner beforehand. The show doesn't start until after 11pm, though, so it will be a very late night. Good thing is the bus drops you off at your hotel on the way back, which was very much appreciated. Definitely recommended!
No night tour!

The Moulon Rouge was awesome! We were supposed to get a short bus tour of the city lights, but it never happened. We had to get there 30 early, which we did. The bus left 15 mins late and we just picked up people at another location and sat on the bus. We went to the 11:00 show, so we wasted time just sitting on a bus! I feel I am due a refund.
Fun evening out!
