We had a great tour in Paris with Nadia. At the beginning we got a detailed explanation about the neighborhood and the church. We then visited several grocery stores where we were allowed to try. Great little shops that you might not find otherwise. There was also a glass or two of wine. We can only recommend the tour. Thank you Nadia :)

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.
