Full description

Begin your tour with one of the true classics: a flaky butter croissant made fresh from one of the city’s best-loved bakers. Here, you’ll also enjoy a taste of homemade sourdough bread and hear more about the family who runs this local favorite. Naturally, macarons should be at the top of the menu for any visit to France. Your next stop will take you to a master chocolatier for some tasty treats to kick off the tour. As a Meilleur Ouvrier de France – a title awarded to only the best in their craft – you can be sure that these are some of the best quality chocolates in the neighborhood. It's then time for a lesser-known but equally delicious snack at a local food market: chickpea pancakes. Afterward, you’ll be guided through Paris’ Jewish quarter on a short historical walk.

As you explore a century-old shop bursting with regional delicacies, hear more about the Jewish history of Paris. Enjoy some unique pastries in a family-run bakery, then get insight into how the French shop for produce, all while tasting a delicious selection of cheeses and cured meats. Originally opened as a protest against fast food, at the next restaurant you'll try some delicious French onion soup and learn more about the menu, which consists of locally sourced ingredients and dishes made from scratch. Journey onwards for a pastry experience like no other. Mixing Syrian flavors with French patisserie techniques, visit a French-Syrian baker who crafts delicious pastry nests. It wouldn’t be right to finish without a glass of wine. Your last stop will take you to a spot specializing in natural wines. Here, you’ll meet the owner and hear about this fascinating world.

This was an amazing tour of the many flavors of Paris. From delicious croissants, savory crepes, wonderful pastries, chocolates, cheeses, meats, and soups to lovely wine at the end. Our guide, Juan, was fun and informative. My main recommendation is to not eat anything before going on this tour. You get generous tastings at every stop along the way. Highly recommend this walking tour.
