Holiday Special - A Parisian Christmas



Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann, Paris, France
30 mins

About the tour

Have you ever been to Paris at Christmas time? Well you're in for a treat because we're going to see the beautifully decorated galleries of Lafayette. The lights, toys, music and animated shop widows will be sure to bring out your inner kid. If that doesn't do the trick, seeing one of the biggest Christmas trees certainly will! From there, we'll stroll along Haussmanian Boulevard to see the strikingly lit up Palais Garnier. We'll also find out what makes the avenue the opera house is on special. If you want a clue - think lights...

Meet your local guide


I was lucky enough to travel the world with my job, discover different cultures and meet incredible people. I enjoy sharing the love and passion I have about my own city, Paris. Its monuments, its history, its gastronomy, its culture, and all of its little secrets. I can't wait to share all of these with you!

The Christmas in Paris tour was the first tour I booked when I discovered this site. Although it ended up being my fifth tour to go on, it was one I was really looking forward to. Patrick was very knowledgeable and cared enough for us tourist to make sure we could hear and see him. The tour was a lot of fun and makes me want to return to Paris again for more sites!

The tour was delightful. Even though it was raining Patrick kept his and our spirits up by showing us wonderful Christmas lights, sites and decorations. I felt happy in this dreadful time of lockdown. Thanks again.
