paris christmas lights
A unique experience! If you are already in Paris at Christmas time, then you should consider booking such a ride...
The audio guide was poorly implemented when we tried the German version. Computer voice, no Christmas atmosphere and only the regular information. But we don't know if this is the same in other languages..
There are some "dry spells" when it comes to decorations and at EUR 35, this Christmas tour is twice as expensive as in Barcelona...
Dress warmly! Maybe take an extra blanket with you and if possible a thermos ;)

- Dress warmly! Since the upper deck is only partially covered - you'll want to have an unobstructed view - at 7 degrees, it can be quite chilly: a scarf, thick jacket, hat, and gloves are advantageous!
- Better go to the restroom beforehand! There are no restrooms on the bus, and the tour doesn't stop for bathroom breaks...
- Hot cocoa included! At least that was the case during our visit in 2021: Before boarding, you are served hot cocoa - delicious!
- Extra tip: Galeries Lafayette is just around the corner and, like every year, has a fantastic Christmas tree that you can check out to get in the mood (after the tour, it gets tight as it's only open until 8pm).
