My husband and I enjoyed this very much. It helps to know what to expect going into it so you aren’t disappointed. Specifically there are only a handful of stations highlighted for the walking around part, which are designated on a poster when you first...More

I was torn between a 3-star and 4-star review. Before the show starts they tell you to walk around and examine the various chapels but most people don't do this, they want to get "best" seats before the actual performance. The light show is professional,...More

Have wanted to check this out for awhile. The show is similar to the lazer show projected on Parliament buildings in Ottawa but only 15 mins however there is specific effects happening to the stations around the church before the "show". The effects really show...More

Something like this can't be put into words and if I had to; powerful, awestruck, moved. I've seen many reviews talk about it not being long enough, in reality, it's just right. I can maybe see how the abrupt ending would leave some confused, but...More

This is an amazing experience, and so as to not give too much away, I think you will get a sense that you have been carried away to another place by the end of the show. It seems to end too soon and I was...More

The producer needs to try exploring the dynamic range of the overpowered sound system in this church rather than playing a compressed wave of pounding, ear-piercing noise at maximum for the entire duration of the show. I sincerely wished I had brought a set of...More

We enjoyed the Notre Dame Basilica and light show. The music and lights are quite dramatic (some might say overly so) and the kids enjoyed it more than they were expecting. You need to have tickets in advance, and be ready for a long line...More

Very lovely and awe inspiring light show in the basilica. The church itself is beautiful and grand and the paintings and statues are amazing. The light show is the icing on the cake.

I want to say I loved this, but I was left feeling a bit disappointed. The light show is very good, but it abruptly ends and everyone was sitting afterward wondering if it was really over. I feel it was very expensive for what it...More

One of the most interesting experiences I've ever had visiting a major basilica/cathedral - the light show set to the orchestral music is simply amazing. Make the time!

I bought my tickets on the site online. There was no promo code that I remember at the time. Sorry.

We went to the show August 16, 2018. When we arrived people were already lining up 45 minutes ahead of time. They probably started letting us in about 20 minutes ahead of time. I thought I read somewhere that you should be... More
