Are you looking to discover illuminated Paris in a unique way? Are you craving some Christmas spirit? Well, we have the perfect remedy for you! During our special 2hr Paris Illuminations Tour, you will experience the fabulous Christmas lights & twinkles while being comfortably seated aboard a motorcycle and sidecar for a 40-min ride. You will also visit a typical French Christmas market and savor some treats.
Meet your guide near the Opera to begin spotting some wonderful illuminations in the Opera neighborhood and Rue de la Paix as you head to the famous Vendome Square.
At Vendome Plaza, your eyes will glitter while admiring the windows of the most famous jewelry stores, the sparkling Christmas trees, and Napoleon’s Vendome column. We will then head to the Tuileries gardens where you’ll be invited to stroll through the largest Parisian Christmas market located right in the heart of the gardens.
Wander through the market and discover some specialties and artisans from all over France. Your guide will show you the way in this maze of delicacies and will select the best products for you to try, such as a glass of champagne and some delicious foie gras.
Enjoy Paris during Christmas with our illuminations tour in a vintage sidecar!
After this wonderful visit, you will continue the journey aboard a classic sidecar with a World War II-inspired vintage design for an atypical illuminations tour of Paris. Just sit back, relax, and let your driver show you the most beautiful illuminations of Paris during this 40-min tour.
Each sidecar can welcome two passengers – one behind the driver and one in the sidecar – in secured and comfortable conditions (all the equipment will be provided, such as a sterilized helmet, hygiene caps, gloves, rain coats, blankets, etc.). Your driver will take you from Concorde Square to the Champs-Elysees, and even from the Arc de Triomphe to the Eiffel Tower. You will get to see why Paris is known as the City of Lights!
You will leave your guide and driver with some sparkles in your eyes and delicious treats in your belly. Experience Christmas in Paris like no one else ever has!

Is this tour okay for children?
Of course! Even the youngest ones can enjoy this tour. Children can ride behind the driver if they are 8 years or older, otherwise they will enjoy the tour from inside the sidecar. We will provide them with a kids helmet.
Could the weather be an obstacle for this Christmas Illuminations Tour?
Paris never witnesses heavy snow, so there is no obstacle to walking during winter. You just need to dress warmly. You will also be provided with some equipment in case of light rain or cold.
Can we do this Illuminations Tour in the morning?
We recommend doing it in the afternoon (ideally around 4pm) to benefit from the dazzling illuminations, but as this is a private tour, we can customize it for your own schedule.
When can I do this Illuminations Tour?
As it’s an activity designed for the Christmas season, this tour can only be done from November 24th, 2019 to January 4th, 2020.
Can we still do tour if we have more than 2 people?
Just advise us in your request form about the number of people in your party, as well as their category (adult or child), so we’ll be able to tell you about the extra fee per additional person. Foie gras and champagne will be replaced for young ones by hot chocolate and a crêpe.
What if I don’t drink alcohol or eat meat?
If you don’t drink alcohol or eat meat, we can easily offer you some alternatives so you can fully enjoy the tour!
