Had a super great guide Michel, and he was able to juggle an a through traffic. He fulfilled all wishes..super great. Merci beaucoup the duck was really old.. unfortunately not in great shape. If the passenger door opens in a curve... well then it closes in a left curve. The window on the front passenger door didn't stay up, even tying it down didn't work. c' est la vie.

This was a unique and excellent way to see the sites of Paris and the experience was made all the better by a very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful guide. I would highly recommended it.
