Complete Tour Description
Slip into the evening atmosphere on this three-part Paris night tour with a trio of classic Parisian experiences that embody the best of the City of Light’s famous joie de vivre: a cruise down the Seine river, a guided tour of the Eiffel Tower, and an evening at the world’s most famous cabaret, the Moulin Rouge. With a local expert guide by your side, you’ll see the essence that makes Paris both timelessly romantic and sensual unveiled before your very eyes.
This unforgettable Paris experience begins with a one-hour cruise along the artery that has forged the city’s character, the dazzling Seine River. Meet your guide who will put you aboard and bid you bon voyage as your boat meanders along its calm waters, treated to views of the city’s most captivating monuments, including the Louvre, Notre Dame and the medieval Conciergerie, a former palace which later served as a prison for inmates like Marie Antoinette. As the Eiffel Tower comes into view, you’ll wish this ride would last forever, but then there’s Paris to be seen from above.
Meet your guide again for direct ascent up Paris’ most recognizable emblem, the Eiffel Tower. You’ll enjoy Skip the Desk Line Access, meaning you can avoid the often lengthy waits and make your way straight to the 2nd-floor observation deck to take in the 360° views of a city so beautiful, it has sparked countless painters, authors, musicians and lovers with inspiration. While you gaze out over the skyline, your guide will tell you about the tower’s construction, how it was welcomed, and other fascinating stories of this iconic monument’s place in the Parisian history.
With twilight in the City of Light twinkling away, it’s time to sample its legendary nightlife as your guide shares commentary on the allure of Paris by night. Our private bus will whisk you away to Montmartre for a show at the neon-clad Moulin Rouge. This iconic nightspot has enjoyed perennial mythical status thanks to artist Toulouse-Lautrec’s famous depictions of it and later, Baz Luhrmann’s Oscar-winning 2001 film. Here, you’ll witness the razzle-dazzle revue show that delighted Parisian masses and scandalized the buttoned-up members of the upper echelons when it first opened in 1889.
Take a selfie under the giant red windmill as you head inside to take in the vast Belle Époque interior with tables for audience members to sit at for an experience marked by style and intimacy. Enjoy a half-bottle of champagne per guest to sip as the show gets underway followed by an extravaganza of singing, dancing and outlandish specialty performances (ranging from acrobatic roller skaters to a death-defying act with dancers swimming with pythons!). You’ll also see some of the most eye-popping beaded, bejeweled, sequined and feathered costumes known to showbiz, and of course, there will be lots of masterful choreographies, including the never-to-be-missed ‘can-can’ dance, courtesy of the swirling, twirling, high-kicking chorus of Doriss girls.
