ABOUT THE City of Lights Walking Tour

You may have seen the major landmarks of Paris during the day, but they take on an entirely different look at when the sun starts to set! Join this 2-hour evening walking tour to discover why Paris is world-famous as the City of Lights. 


Your evening walking tour through Paris meets at Place de la Concorde and finishes at the Eiffel Tower or Place du Trocadéro. 


The City of Love becomes the City of Lights

Famous for love stories, revolutions and royal intrigues, Paris and its iconic monuments stand as visible reminders of some of the most romantic periods of history. As the day winds down, your expert local guide will lead you through the streets of Paris to see these incredible sites.

See major Paris landmarks in a whole new light

Whether it is catching the perfect light at dusk in summer or huddling together as you watch the night lights in winter, this evening tour will take you to some of Paris’ most picture perfect spots.

Beginning at the Luxor Obelisk at the Place de le Concorde, this walking tour also takes in major Paris landmarks like Champs Élysées and the Arc de Triomphe, the Grande Palais and the Petite Palais, the unofficial memorial of Lady Diana, the iconic Eiffel Tower, and much more.

Please note that due to the late sunset times in summer, many buildings will not yet be lit at the time of the tour between May and September.

What is a Select Tour?


Select Tours focus on a particular area or district of a city, a certain aspect of its history or culture, or take you outside the city on a day trip. Select Tours are perfect for those who have enjoyed an introduction to the city and wish to delve deeper into the stories the city has to offer. These tours often venture further afield and make use of local public transport.

As with the Free Tour, Select Tours are provided by local freelance guides in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, who bring their personal flair and expert knowledge to these specifically themed tours. Select tours have a fixed ticket price - we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
