Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 135 reviews

Highly recommend. We were with a group of about 10 other people, mixed ages. The food stops were fun and delicious. We tried local foods. The stops were not touristy but closer to what locals enjoy. Our tour guide, Arthur, was well informed and very pleasant. He provided just the right amount of information and detail. Stops/tastings included wine and cheese in an open market (Enfants-Rouges) where locals buy fresh produce, cheese, meat, etc.; delicious jam, Popeilini pastries, charcuterie at a bistro, and a bakery (delicious meringue cake).

This was an excellent tour, and I would recommend to it to everyone! Our tour guide Anthony was informative and funny. We sampled a variety of deliciousness like macarons, cheese, falafel, and wine (to name a few). I learned about different cheeses and regions across France, as well as Parisian history as we walked through Le Marais. We went to local places, so you really got a one of a kind experience.
