What You Can Expect

Paris Dinner with Parisian Hosts

Dinner in Paris with Local Hosts

Venture away from the tourist track and experience a truly unique night out in Paris. Meet your hosts in the evening at their private city apartment, where you’ll be welcomed into their home for an intimate glimpse into daily Parisian life. Your English-speaking hosts are part of a network of locals who offer to welcome visitors into their home as part of a voluntary, unpaid cultural exchange. 

Settle in around the dining room table and enjoy a traditional French four-course dinner delivered by a catering company or local eatery. Meals typically include an appetizer, a main course, cheese and dessert, accompanied by regional wine and mineral water. 

During the meal, enjoy relaxed and cordial conversation with your hosts in English. It’s a marvelous opportunity to learn about French culture and the lives of modern Parisians, and share stories from your own life. Meals typically last around 2 hours, and the experience can be customized to accommodate single travelers, couples or families with children.

We met the nicest family, the LeGrandes. Cutest baby, very lively and friendly couple. We would definitely recommend this "tour" to others.

The catered food was good but nothing memorable, so perhaps Viator can work on that.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Such a wonderful experience and hostess. It deepened both my understanding and appreciation for French culture beyond my usual guidebook directed stops and cafe sitting.
