With daylight coming to an end, see the city's sights during the evening lights and around a less touristy crowd. Walk with your guide to see the column that stands at Place Vendôme and the Egyptian obelisk that stands at Place de la Concorde, and then head along the Champs-Elysées, the city's famous avenue lined with hotels and shops. You have the chance here to enjoy some vin chaud (hot wine) or try a snack at the Christmas market (during the holiday season; own expense). Then walk toward the Seine, passing by the Grand Palais, and stroll along the riverbank, admiring the city's elegant bridges such as Pont Alexandre III.

Visit the Trocadero for a view of the illuminated Eiffel Tower; depending on your timing, you may be able to see the tower's sparkling light show that occurs for a few minutes at the top of each hour.

Take advantage of the cooler, calmer evening and discover where the locals gather to unwind, and get some recommendations from your guide of where to go in Paris at night. Bid your host goodbye before enjoying the rest of your night in Paris like a local.

Ankool was so cool!
John_P, Apr 2023
Great experience with Ankool. He was very engaging, informative and made an impromptu change to our tour based on where we already have been to make sure there was no redundancy. Awesome tour and guide. Highly recommend!
Wonderful tour
Darrell_G, Apr 2023
Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable, knew the city like the back of his hand. Really knew how to tailor the tour to our interests
Great evening walk through Paris
Kevin_B, Feb 2023
Essentially had a private tour through the central area of Paris, learning about the history of the various buildings, monuments, palaces, etc. Learned a lot about the city to help inform our future travels to Paris. Really enjoyed seeing the city lit up at night.
A Night To Remember
Hieu_L, Nov 2022
Our guide Ali Berredjem was awesome! Thank you for sticking with us throughout the night in the pouring rain taking your time to go over all the the history of the sites we visited. Highly recommend this walking tour at night when everything is lit up!
CLIFF_C, Nov 2022
This tour was the WORST!!!! Our tour guide, Alexis did not show up. This was supposed to be a private tour and without any courtesy calls nor email just to let us know that he won't show up. We were even very early at the meeting area, and waited for at least 20 mins before calling Viator coz we tried to call both numbers provided, but to no avail. We had to use our US phones, took risk of the international charges, just to reach out to the tour company and Alexis...but to no avail. We then called Viator but we were just told that the tour company's office is already closed and that they will only send an email to the tour company. Until now, Viator also did not let us know of the status. The good thing is, they have refunded us the whole amount of this tour. If not, we have to dispute the charges. Anyway, don't take this tour with this company nor with Alexis. You will be frustrated especially if your time in Paris is limited like us. Don't waste your time.

Magical evening is right!
Jessica_B, Aug 2022
It was truly a magical night filled with history, general information, and good laughs. Would totally recommend to anyone since the night can be tailored to be whatever you want. We had the best time!
Great night in Paris
Dan_C, Aug 2022
Anukool was really informative and made the tour really interesting! The Opera house and the Louvre at night were both Amazing!
Wonderful time!
Nancy_F, July 2022
Anukool was excellent. Very knowledgeable and helpful to our group. We had an excellent time. Would highly recommend.
Wonderful evening
Malka_E, July 2022
Love that when I met the guide, he was able to be 100% flexible and make adjustments to the tour. I got to know some of Paris thru Anujool’s perspectives. So special and interesting
Great start to beautiful Paris
Marcy_L, May 2022
We spent a wonderful evening with Anukool. He was so knowledgeable with the perfect mix of history and fun. After our evening we had a good idea of the layout of the city, the timeline of city events and construction, the places we should spend time at, the food we really needed to try and some secret treasures we would have never known about. The city is so beautiful at night and touring with Anukool was our wonderful intro to Paris. Highly recommend!
Great Walking Tour
Tina_R, Aug 2021
Our guide, Anukool, was great. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the sights we saw. Unfortunately because of COVID, things closed early but we were still able to enjoy the tour. I think most importantly, Anukool went at our pace and using his own words "it's a walk not a race". I did a night tour on a previous visit but the walking tour allowed me to see more things that being on a bus did not. Would definitely recommend!!
Quick Paris Tour
USA-1stvisit, Aug 2021
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We feel like we did a historical walk for sure. We walked 7.1 miles. He was upfront and told us he was not a licensed tour guide. We barely made it to the Eiffel Tower when the tour time was over. I ask him to take a few pictures for me (4) The last one was pretty important to me. To my surprise I was wearing the Eiffel Tower on my head. Not happy about that one. I can not get that moment back. You should know how to frame a shot if your going to give yours. We decided to take a taxi back to our hotel. It would have been nice to have a map of sorts to follow on your tour to reference back to as you look at pictures. It felt like we did a lot of unorganized looping back and forth. The weather cooperated and we barely got a sprinkle of rain. I got some lovely photos.
Excellent primer on the main Paris sights
Loren_L, July 2021
Muriel was top notch. He was enthusiastic, informative, patient, accommodating, extremely smart, and also very pleasant. We are so happy we were able to view Paris at night with him! Important note - we visited in the summer and our tour started at 8:00 p.m. Despite the fact that the sun did not set until the end of the tour, I believe that Paris at Dusk was even more beautiful than Paris at Night! We loved our tour. The information was geared towards adults so my husband and I took turns with the guide while the other hung more with the children.
Lots of Walking
Paradise29746813888, June 2019
Our tour guide was very nice. However, we felt it was a lot of walking and we really didn't get to see much. This is something I felt we could have actually done on our own.
Paris at Night
Rosann_R, May 2019
This was a wonderful tour. Our guide Marilo was very interesting and filled with so much history of the buildings we saw on our walk. The city is so beautiful at night and we felt so safe with our person guide. The tour ended at he Eiffle tower all light up. Marilo was so help with taking our photos and showing us the best way back to our hotel. I would do this tour again
Amazing walking tour of Paris by night
WILLIAM_M, Jan 2019
My husband and I and our two children age 22 and 20, had an amazing walking tour experience with our guide Murillo. We saw all the “must sees” of Paris and he gave us so many historical facts also. Murillo Was so knowledgeable and personable. We all enjoyed this tour so much… Was one of our favorite parts of the trip. I definitely recommend it!
Nice tour. Our guide Nicholas was pro...
Alexandru_B, Feb 2018
Nice tour. Our guide Nicholas was pro and kindly recommended for every one. Thanks
