What To Expect

Book now! Moulin Rouge regularly sells out weeks in advance, so book early to avoid disappointment.

Your Paris by night experience starts with a sightseeing tour, which takes you past the City of Light’s most popular landmarks including the Arc de Triomphe and Ile de Cité. On board either a 50-person coach or an 8-seater minivan, depending on option selected when booking, travel through the twinkling city to admire it in its illuminated glory.

Start at a central departure point (coach tour) or with pickup at your hotel (minivan tour), and take off down Paris’ tree-lined avenues dotted with bustling cafes. Pass by Place de la Concorde, Place Vendome and Place Pigalle, and see the Opera House, La Madeleine Church, the Champs-Elysées, Rue Royale, the Trocadero, Les Invalides, Chatelet Square, and the Eiffel Tower.

Then head up to Montmartre, where the Moulin Rouge stands proud with its iconic windmill lighting up the lively neighborhood. Take a seat and settle in with a provided glass of Champagne while ‘Feerie’ begins. This French revue features 100 artists, including 60 dancers known as Doriss Girls, who take the stage in glittery feathered costumes. They dance the cancan on vibrant sets that include moving staircases, swings and an aquarium. When the show is over, you are returned to your original departure point.

Please note: In the winter season (Nov - March), this tour typically includes the first show at the Moulin Rouge. On occasion, however, the theater allocates seats to the second show. In this case, you enjoy a complimentary Seine River cruise between the illuminations tour and the show. During the summer season (April - Oct), this tour typically includes the second show, but if it isn't available, you see the first show.

Badly organized tour
JoseNoris_M, May 2023
The bus left our tour group at 2am in really cold and rainy Paris, despite following the instructions of our tour guide to the tee. We left the Moulin Rouge show right away to go to the meeting point. Our tour group waited for 30 minutes to an hour for the bus. The bus apparently left before the show was over and they did not even inform us. One of our tour groupmates had to ask other bus drivers in the area to find out that they left us. The city tour itself had audio guides but it was not even arranged according the sites we passed through. They also did not pass through every attraction that was in the audio guide. The moulin rouge show itself was good but we recommend finding other ways to get tickets.
Great experience overall
Evagelia_V, May 2023
Amazing tour around the sights of Paris And incredible moulin rouge show Would highly recommend this tour
Great show! Worth it. Do not expect a tour tho.
Judith_A, May 2023
Moulin Rouge show was amazing ! However, the city night tour was not a tour at all, only transportation to the Moulin Rouge. I was expecting more from from that first stage of the package.
Book moulin rouge direct online without tour
samantha_m, May 2023
Moulin rouge show was fantastic. Meeting point and city tour was a complete shamble, guide did not even explain the evening just gave us the show card and said hang on to the show card. We only went past 2 places in the audio guide before being dropped off by bus driver - guide didn't even come with us - 1 hour before show. No explanation we'd be standing waiting for 1 1/4 hours in a huddle. Only bit of info guide gave in beginning was to meet bus 15 minutes 3 minutes down the road from moulin rouge after show. The bus did not wait 15 minutes. It drove off. We did not get 1 1/2 hours of the tour as listed and PAID for. I recommend booking moulin rouge direct for a much more pleasant evening as show is great.
Tour needs some improvement, show was fantastic.
Donna_J, May 2023
The evening bus tour definitely needed running commentary. I was very disappointed that we were not picked up after the show as per the plan, and our group of friends had to pay for a taxi back to our accommodation. Not very happy.
The Night Bus Tour is a scam!!!
Chris_C, May 2023
The Paris Night Tour was a bus ride only. No Rep on the Bus to coordinate where we were, with the online info provided, nor any audible info on the Bus itself. “Truly a dismal& waste of time & money”, we three couples agreed. Moulin Rouge was excellent!
Good show terrible tour
Victoria_S, Nov 2022
Our Night Illuminations Tour was cancelled. The tour operator said that there was not enough time to do the tour and make it to Moulin Rouge. He stated w would get a refund. We did not get advance notice however and we had to walk a long distance to catch a bus to the Moulin Rouge. We were not prepared to walk quite so far in the cold and dark. The Moulin Rouge Show was fabulous and we enjoyed it immensely!!
Paris by Night Okay, Moulin Rouge Fantastic!
Valerie_Y, Oct 2022
Moulin Rouge is worth seeing! We arrived, went into the building and seated immediately. The Night Tour was about 45 minutes with an audio guide that was not in sequence with the sites. Still, it was beautiful to see the lights of Paris. The only concern was that our group of 4 was dropped off on the Eiffel Tower Bridge to wait for another bus to take us to Moulin Rouge. We were left standing for a while not knowing what to do and no one made contact. Eventually it worked out. Great evening in Paris.

No one showed up we would like a refund!! Totally disorganized no warning they were not going to show!

The Moulin Rouge show was very good, but the Paris Bus tour was not good. My husband and I had to share a iPad and headphones. (They ran out) We had trouble working the iPad and there was no one to assist us.

Penni_K, Jul 2022
The bus tour was terrible The technology was not good and did not keep up with where you actually were at Moulin Rouge show was great
Tablets are just so-so
Deborah_M, May 2022
A little awkward with the planning and the distribution of tablets. Tablets are great, however it took them two to three highlights to work properly. The Moulin Rouge was great! Next time I would book the Moulin Rouge and opt to separate the night city tour from the Moulin Rouge. There was no time to eat until after the Moulin Rouge show which was about 10:30 pm.
Great tour guide
Jaime_T, Dec 2019
I had the friendliest tour guide and the show was amazing! It's a must do while in Paris! I missed the show the first time I went, but I'm so glad that I did it this time.
Very good tour and show
John_B, Nov 2019
It was really good. The tour guide was excellent. The show was good. The only issue was the taxi driver almost getting in road rage fight.
A Nighttime Classic!
Barbara B, Oct 2019
Due to the availability of tickets and the crowds in Pigalle/Montmartre, the tour seemed to be the most efficient way to go. The nighttime tour before the show afforded the opportunity to see Paris at its most romantic best.
Awesome, but a late night
Kristie_K, Aug 2019
The tour of Paris by Night was spectacular. It was great seeing the monuments all lit up! The Moulin Rouge show was more than I expected! Be sure to eat dinner beforehand. The show doesn't start until after 11pm, though, so it will be a very late night. Good thing is the bus drops you off at your hotel on the way back, which was very much appreciated. Definitely recommended!
No night tour!
Patricia_C, Jul 2019
The Moulon Rouge was awesome! We were supposed to get a short bus tour of the city lights, but it never happened. We had to get there 30 early, which we did. The bus left 15 mins late and we just picked up people at another location and sat on the bus. We went to the 11:00 show, so we wasted time just sitting on a bus! I feel I am due a refund.
Fun evening out!
Kathleen_B, Oct 2018
The tour guide was very informative and friendly. The city at night is absolutely beautiful and a definite must when visiting Paris. The Mpulin Rouge show was spectacular. We throughly enjoyed the entire evening!

John O, Dec 2017
Fun outing - Moulin Rouge was a delightful show - not nearly as risque as you might think. The night tour was spectacular - All the key sites without the crowds. Completely different from visiting the same sites during the day. Our guide was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and friendly. 5 stars for sure

Rebekah S, Nov 2017
Highlight of bus tour was going by Eiffel Tower at just the right time to see the ‘sparkle’. Some of the dancing is ‘corny’ cabaret style but I was pleasantly surprised that it also had moments of circus skill/acrobatics that really genuinely impressed me. Got dropped of metres from my hotel.

Mark_W, Nov 2017
There was only 4 of us in a van which was nice and personal. The guide was great and knew a lot about the history of the sights. He stopped and took pictures of us with the Eiffel tower sparkling in the back ground. Moulin Rouge was amazing I loved it.

Triny J, Oct 2017
Love the show. The night views are amazing. And they will take you back to somewhere nearby your hotels. Definitely recommended.

Nikki M, Oct 2017
The evening began with a city night tour, there were only two other people so we had a minibus, the driver Jose was very informative and friendly. The tour lasted approximately an hour and then he took us to the river to join up with a coach which took us to the Moulin Rouge. We went straight in, bypassing the queues and were seated right opposite the stage. The show was brilliant, we had a half bottle of champagne included. After the show we went to the arranged pick up point and all the coaches home were waiting, if you prefer to stay longer and make your own way home then you can. If I have a criticism it would be that finding the main office to begin the night tour was a bit tricky, if you can have hotel pick up it maybe easier. Overall I would recommend this tour.

coracastro, Aug 2017
The tour and the show took place as expected. It was great and helpful to be dropped off at the nearest corner stop of the hotel we resided. Most helpful especially at that time of the night. I just wish the guide/s were more explicit with their instructions as soon as we alighted from the bus at the Moulin Rouge venue.

JayNBee, Jul 2017
My tour guide picked me up and since I was the only one, he took me all over the city and explained all kinds of Parisian history to me. It was so personalized and it was great! We met up with everyone else for the Moulin Rogue show and it was great! I loved it!

Kimberly D, Jul 2017
Really enjoyed this tour!! Seeing Paris at night is always amazing and we LOVED the show at the Moulin Rouge. I highly recommend this tour! We did the small group and was picked up at our hotel which was a nice touch since we were all dressed up for the show.
