We saw so many things that you wouldn’t know existed. JB took us to many stops and explained the history behind it , all while we were having fun getting around on the scooter. I have to say that when I first saw the scooter I was a little intimidated but after JB explained how to use it, I did a test run and it was a breeze. It’s a fantastic way to get around the city to see all of the amazing hidden sites. This tour was the best thing we did while in France. We highly recommend booking this trip. Thank you JB for the awesome experience!!!
