This year, our award winning Paris Christmas Tours return from the 14th of November 2022 to the 5th of January 2023. Much more than just the best of the Christmas lights, the tours go on a special holiday journey of discovery, visiting famous landmarks as well as off the beaten path neighbourhoods from which so many of our festive traditions originate.

The tour makes extended stops to go outside of the vehicle with your professional guide, with plenty of opportunities for photographs and optional visits to the traditional churches and Christmas markets. Collection and return is included to your central Paris hotel or accommodation, for the perfect holiday experience.

- Any guide or chauffeur with symptoms will be unable to report to work, no matter how mild, with regular Covid-19 testing taking place.
The French government is set provide further information on the ease of lockdown, beginning with the re-opening of schools. A press conference is set for Thursday. Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by the pandemic in France and we cannot wait to socialise and discover the beauty of France very soon.

While there is plenty of time left until the games, we are excited to hear of the progress and work being carried out in the city of lights. Volleyball pitches will be located on either side of the Eiffel Tower and marathon swimming will take place on the Seine River that runs through Paris.
