What a great reward!!!
By the way, if you want to do something a bit different than touristy stuff, I know something amazing, that even a lot of people from Paris don't know : la promenade plantée.
If I were in Steve and Rachelle's shoes I would take you up on the offer. There are certain "must see" in every city, especially Paris, but to spend 10 days surrounded by tourists would never appeal to me. Spend time with the locals.
Have a great time and safe travels.
Hopefully we will read about your experience sometime down the road.
