Python The Bordless Tourist Project

This is my code for the Bordless Tourist project. I keep getting the following errors when I run it:

Traceback (most recent call last):
** File “”, line 73, in **
** smills_france = get_attractions_for_traveler([‘Dereck Smill’, ‘Paris, France’, [‘monument’]])**
** File “”, line 68, in get_attractions_for_traveler**
** interests_string += "the " + traveler_attractions[i] + “.”**
TypeError: can only concatenate tuple (not “str”) to tuple

Im not sure why Im getting these errors. Can someone help me pinpoint where I’ve gone wrong here?
