Full description
Experience the charm of Paris at night, when the lights turn on in the evening to illuminate the city monuments for the night. Your combined river cruise and burlesque show takes in 2 of the city’s great icons to end your day in style.

Start with a short 1-hour cruise along the River Seine to see iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, Notre-Dame de Paris, and Pont Alexandre III under the beauty of their nightime lights. The glass covered boat provides added romance to the lamp-lit cruise.

Then, take your seats at the Lido Cabaret Show on the Champs-Elysée, and watch one of the city’s most famous and flamboyant burlesque shows. You will see the “Bonheur" show, which follows the diary of a woman in search of happiness, performed by the Bluebell Girls and Lido Boy Dancers.

Marvel at their magnificent costumes and the amazing sets as magical lights set the scene. A complimentary glass of Champagne and perfect cabaret music complete this evening of pure "bonheur" (“happiness”).

Two independent events

The boat trip on the Seine and the visit to the Lido were both very nice, but actually two separate events. We were the only ones who did the boat ride in evening wear, but it was not bad. Not so nice that at the show actually half a bottle of champagne should be served, it was on the voucher. After long discussions there was unfortunately only one glass.

Great show

The show at the Lido was an experience. It's hard to believe what kind of technology is in this small theater! Lowerable rows of tables, pyramids, ice rinks and waterfalls that come from the floor of the stage are brilliant. The dance numbers are also very worth seeing. The boat tour can, but does not have to be done before the show, is valid for two days.
