This wonderful Paris night tour will take you the second floor of the Eiffel Tower, on a Seine river cruise and to see the illuminated attractions of the city.

Skip the line and go straight to the second level of the Eiffel Tower, the iconic symbol of Paris, where you will have plenty of time to admire the splendid views.

Cruising along the Seine, watching the imposing facades of the monuments gently fading into the background is a wonderful experience. It’s a delight to watch the hustle-bustle of the city from the cosy comfort of your boat.

Lastly the “Paris Illuminations” tour will take you to see some of the popular attractions of Paris like the Place de la Concorde, the Champs-Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe which are spectacularly lit at night.

This tour is extremely popular and advance booking is highly recommended. Should this tour not be available on your chosen date, we have an alternative which operates during day time, click here for more details>>

Good no frills tour.

Heidi Fell

The tour was very good. The city of Paris is so beautiful with its lights on at night. This tour is highly recommended!


Excellent ... right from the quality of transport infrastructure to the amount of time at Eiffel. Also appreciate the fact that Eiffel was done at the end to provide maximum time.

Annette Stonger

This is a great way to see Paris from a boat and a bus! The tour gives you a snapshot of Paris and culminates with the Eiffel Tower. I recommend taking the tour in the evening, so you see the Eiffel Tower lit up. The cost of the tour provides entry to the Eiffel to the second floor, but you can buy tickets once you get there to the top. We did that, and it was definitely worth it! This is a great tour for the price, you avoid the long lines and get right in!

This was the only way we could see the Eiffel Tower as the online tickets were sold out for this date. We loved seeing the Tower in lights.
