We were easily the only tourists in an almost sold out show and had a very enjoyable evening. This a true circus: acrobats, clown, magicians, elephants, etc... in a beautiful building (is Paris after all). A little taste of what locals do on weekends and completely off the beaten path. Bought tickets through BilletReduct and got great seats.

We went to the Cirque D'Hiver in Paris on Saturday. It was a great show for all ages. Wonderful old fashioned circus setting, elephants and horses, gymnasts and trapeze artists, and lots of funny clown stuff. This is a very polished, entertaining show and well worth the time and money. A terrific family outing! My grandchildren loved it and declared... More

My mother booked the Cirque Bouglione for my children for half term. I didn't know what to think of it first but I thought why not! What a treat! This new show is SPECTACULAR! I was totally taken aback by the quality of the performers. My children were mesmerised during two whole hours. We did feel like it was a... More

Due to a lack of clarity on the website, the tickets that I ordered where for the traveling show in Strasbourg rather than the show in Paris. When I turned up for the show the bouncers turned me away and basically said tough luck. When I rang the HQ I was told that it was a matter for the department... More

Our first visit back to Paris and this show for 5 years. As ever, the production was first class and the acts are the cream of talent. The Chinese girl unicyclists are truly incredible and deservedly closed the show, though really the show this year belongs to the American clown David Larible. One of his routines was a marvelous skit... More

We loved this circus. We all agreed that the clown was our favourite. The other acts were very good too. It was wonderful hearing the live band. Everyone is so talented. We ordered our tickets online in the uk (Printed off our email confirmation) and collected our tickets at the circus itself. No problems whatsoever! The circus is right opposite... More

I'm not a circus type person and thought the main attraction would be the tigers, I was wrong the whole show is brilliant , we got the second cheapest tickets but to be honest I don't think there's a bad seat in there. Warning though to take cash as popcorn and drinks inside don't have card readers
