Departure Time

6:00 PM
Begin your evening with a pick-up from your hotel in central Paris in a private car with a professional English-speaking driver. Travel through the city to your first stop on this romantic evening—the Seine River, where you'll board a sightseeing boat for a cruise.

Relax as the boat glides through Paris, sipping Champagne and enjoying your sweetheart's company. Upon arrival back at the dock, meet your driver again and travel to one of the city's gourmet restaurants not far from the grand boulevard of the  Champs-Elysées. Dine on a typical French meal, accompanied by more Champagne and wine, and cap it off with coffee and an indulgent French dessert.

After dinner, rejoin your driver for a nighttime driving tour of the 'City of Lights.' Travel past some of the city's main attractions, including the Notre-Dame Cathedral, Arc de Triomphe, Panthéon, Musée d'Orsay, the Opéra and Place de la Concorde. These monuments are always stunning, but even more so at night when they're illuminated. Cross several of the famous bridges over the Seine, including the Pont Neuf, Pont Marie, and Pont Alexandre III, and pause in front of the iconic Eiffel Tower which sparkles unforgettably at night.

As your driver returns you to your hotel, you'll receive a rose and a half-bottle of Champagne so you can continue your romantic Paris evening. Experience the magic of Paris at night with the one you love during this private tour.

this was the amazing tour we have ever taken. Our tour guide Christophe was so wonderful - he made this just a magical night. My husband originally did not want to take the tour because of the expense, but we both agreed that this was money well spent. This evening was an unforgettable night - and if we will definitely do this tour again with Viator and hopefully Christophe when we next visit Paris - just Magical

Christoph was amazing - felt like we knew him from before. I would recommend this to anyone that want to have an intimate time with their other half. We were a little jet-lagged - mainly me, so hope we didn't disappoint Christoph. He still made sure we had an amazing time when we were with him.

Our tour guide was very personable and informative. The Seine River cruise was on one of the smaller sightseeing boats, so we got a great view of the City from the water. Dinner wasn't bad, but not impressive, either. Paris by night was beautiful. Our guide really gave us a great tour. Worth the money

The River Cruise was certainly not "romantic". A few hundred people crammed on a tourist boat is not really romantic. The VW van that was used also was not that special and not in line with the price of the tour. The driver was great and helpful and the meal was good. Overall, overpriced and not really "romantic".

We were a bit worried at first about the quality of the restaurant, but when we arrived it was amazing. We got a glass of champagne each and then a really nice 3 course meal with really good service. We saw everything around Paris in the one trip, and the river cruise was a nice addition. Would highly recommend, worth the money.

The dinner wasn't quite as romantic as I had hoped, but was delicious and was in a restaurant that wasn't tailored to tourists so it seemed to be more authentic French. The cruise was nice, though my fiance was wearing a dress which left her a little chilly, so make sure you bring something warm for the cruise. All in all the night ended out very romantically and the driver was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. I would recommend this to anybody that is looking for a nice evening with their significant other, but do it on your first night in Paris. It's a great way to get your first impression of the Eiffel Tower at night.

This was so romantic. The whole evening was magic. The restaurant, the food and the service were superb. For that something special, that once in a lifetime experience, this is an evening to remember.
