Roberto was most informative and entertaining. I am keen to learn about cheese processes and he was very helpful. He went beyond my expectation and showed us parts of the Latin Quarter that he loved. He's obviously passionate about food and France and it comes through very well in his presentation.

Violet is Fantastic!
She loves food, wine, art, traveling and history which makes her a great guide.
On top of the fact that she is fun to talk to and listen to.
If you want to have a lovely walk through the Latin Quarter where you start with melt in your mouth croissants and end with amazing cheeses, pate, foie gras, breads and wine... then this is a really good way to spend a few hours in a fun part of Paris!

Fantastic! Very knowledgable guide thoroughly enjoyed every moment. She taught and explained a lot about the French food and culture.... This should be one of the first things everyone does in Paris. We had a great time and finished at lunchtime with a bottle of very good wine and delicious cheeses. Highly recommended.

I cannot recommend this tour too highly. Roberto made the streets of Paris come alive and the tasting of cheese wine and delicacies was to die for .All in all value for money and a superb experience

Our guide was Violet and she was a real live wire and full of energy
It was a rainy and overcast day and we were quite gloomy - till our guide showed up. Very knowledgeable and a heady mix of history, anecdotes and superlative food. The cheeses are to die for, and the pastries were superb. She took us to select highly awarded shops with a hoary history and gave us a treat.
Finally we settled down for a small session of wine tasting with foie gras and pate and the highlight
in addition to the food was the very lively commentary
Highly recommend it!!!

Great way to learn more about French cuisine. Our guide Violette was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, super friendly, with perfect English. We visited famous cheese shop, bread shop, patissery shop, deli shop. Enjoyed some wine with lots of yummy things including foie gras, learning new things at the same time. We had great time, not only because of beautiful food and wine, but mostly because our guide Violette was so good. Would recommend this tour to everyone.

The gentleman leading our tour was funny and showed us many sights in the area much beyond just food. It was a very small group and we quickly bonded and had an amazing time together. The food is great and you learn a lot about the area as well.

Mariela is excellent - so knowledgeable and gives great recommendations!

Perfect tour to do at the beginning as it gives you a good food base for what you love and what you want to look for. Montmartre has so many excellent places to go and this tour helps you find what you are looking for. Food is delicious!

- we arrived late and she even took us back tot he places to see what we missed after the tour ended, she was so kind to do that. she will answer any questions you have about Paris.
