    It was prety easy to hop on and off, though I did notice some of those at the Eifel tower stop were turned away due to unnesssary COVID restrictions. Not a lot of tourists yet as Paris was pretty quiet. Obviously they have scaled back as a result.

    Martin our guide was amazing. He was very friendly and not only knowledgeable but interesting and engaging to listen to. He knew a lot about the history of the area, as well as facts about current events and buildings ect. We did not feel rushed and saw even more of Paris than we had expected to. There was only the two of us on the tour which made it very personal and Martin was eager to make the trip as interesting and unique to us as possible answering all the questions we had.
