Parisian delicacies - highly recommended!

An over 3-hour walk through the Latin Quarter and some nearby streets. Many stops with information about Parisian food culture, visits to 5-6 small shops (bakery, patisserie, cheese shop, sausage and meat shop, olive oil sales, market stalls ...), we also received information on political and religious topics. Very pleasant contact, very well informed guide, who also responded well to our questions and requests. The groceries bought were - as expected - delicious. This tour is highly recommended! Thank you!!

A tour to excite the taste buds and very informative a must food tour

Easy from the beginning when booking to meeting our tour guide . What a fun tour and interesting tour, wandering through great markets, tasting briliant produce to learning all the hints on how to buy the best product. The guide was a lovely lady and wandering around it felt like she was a family member not a person doing a daily job. Her knowledge on both the French culture and food was very broad and this tour experience way beyond our wildest dreams. Highly recommend this one

Good leader but organisation at shop tasting could be improved.

The leader was very friendly and happy to share her vast experience and knowledge. A little disappointed at the tasting - it did not seem that we were expected. There were no tables / chairs. 4 of the group sat on upturned boxes.
