This tour is an absolute must do!!! The tour began just before sunset and finished at the Eiffel Tower with the tower floodlit and on the hour the 20,000 lights also blinked for 5 minutes making the tower appear to sparkle. A great way to see Paris illuminated and to relax whilst getting your bearings in the city.
It gets you around. The fact the bus had dirty windows. So pictures out the front were horrible. Cheesy story on head set. Time to update with the times. No one wants to hear there love story which was corny. The boat ride was okay.
Driver was very courteous, and very knowledgeable about the area. He spoke EXCELLENT English. The boat cruise was great, it used an APP on your phone to play the commentary. However, it would be nice to mention this in the description so someone would know to bring ear buds for their phone.
Paris illuminations tour was expected to be a drive abound the city to get a nights view of Pais . The bus tour was short through non business and non entertainment areas. somewhat boring. River cruise was not much better either. It was all worth about $10. waste of money
If you are in Paris for the first time and your in mood for a little romance , I would highly recommend this
Have been to Paris numerous times, but this was the first time experiencing Paris from the river. Totally different perspective!
