    Paris Sights & Lights by Night!

    On arrival, a lot of confusion from us and others about if we were in the right queue for the night tour and not just the hop on/off bus -better instructions on meeting point & signs at stop would be appreciated. Wonderful tour of main Paris sights in evening/night. As sunset wasn't until about 9.45pm - the first half of tour was in evening/dusk and some monument lights had not been illuminated. As time went on, the Paris lights made the sights look even more amazing. The last stop at Eiffel Tower to see light show was magical! I booked tickets for this activity late the night before and downloaded the app for mobile tickets - these were scanned easily by the bus company and we had no problems with redeeming them. The audio commentary was very informative and the music was a 50/50 split of catchy/annoying depending on who you ask in my family! Children were half price too which made the activity more affordable and better value for money. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour

    Great value

    Driver was adept at navigating the insanity known as Paris traffic, which is only slightly less than New York’s. Was able to see a good amount of the main parts of the city; would have liked to see other parts, like Canal St. Martin and the Latin Quarter, but the aforementioned traffic is a challenge, so it’s understood why that couldn’t have been done. Seeing the Eiffel Tower shine was a real treat.

    The Tour was everything I could wish for.

    This tour was taken on the last night of our stay in Paris, I wasn't sure what to expect we sat down stairs on the bus as the top deck was full! The earphones that were provided were ok once you had found where to plug them in and which channel to chose for English. The tour got under way and the only 2 complaints that I would make were the fact that the bus's suspension left a lot to be desired and when it got dark and we want to take pictures the driver left the downstairs lights on so they reflected in the windows (he did turn them off after about an hour which was too late) the stop for the light show was exceptional at the Eiffel Tower and we were able to go on the top deck to take some brilliant pictures of the light show. All in All good value for money. I went with my Son and Daughter-in-law but no children so cannot tick either for family at the bottom of this article.
