What a fun thing to do! This walking tour was a delight. There were two of us on the tour with two guides one in training. We walked all around the left bank, learned about history, art, cheese, breads and wine. At the end of the tour we sat in a shop and tasted what we had acquired on the walk - I would highly recommend this and can't wait to do another walk with Meet the French.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. A thoroughly enjoyable morning spent with our very knowledgable guide, Melissa. We visited the food market, several gourmet food shops and she also shared interesting information about the history of the Latin Quarter. Afterward we sat down and had a chance to taste all the food we had encountered on the way. Because we were only two people on the tour, it felt like we were exploring Paris with a friend. Melissa also gave us a recommendation and helped us book for a really great restaurant later for a special occasion later in the week. Highly, highly recommend this tour with Melissa.
Very informative tour with insights into the origins and differences of various foods. Melissa was extremely knowledgable, professional, and answered any questions we had with passion. Highly recommended.
Cannot say enough good things about this tour and our tour guide, Violette. The tour was fantasic and the sights were beautiful. Violette was wonderful. She speaks perfect English and really knows her stuff. I would recommend the tour to anyone and I would highly recommend Violette.
A perfect tour with a perfect guide. We will book abain. A fine way to spend a morning.
Absolutely loved our tour of the Montmartre quarter. Our tour guide David was excellent! He was very educational and interesting. My husband has never been on a tour and was very hesitant at first but ended up loving it! Definitely a highlight of our visit to Paris.
Roberto was an incredible guide. Not only did he cover food, he also covered a good amount of history on the surrounding area. We were able to go inside those big Parisian wooden doors that open up to spacious and magnificent courtyards, walk through incredible farmer's markets, and even went inside a wonderful cathedral. Of course, the cheese, bread, wine, etc. was amazing, but be sure to eat a bite before the tour starts. The food tasting comes after you've walked a couple of miles or so.
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!!!
Excellent tour!!! Our guide Christine was very knowledgeable and knew the area very well. It was like taking a tour from an old friend. The food was great along with history. Highly recommended!!!

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.
Davide was great! Pastries, cheese, bread and wine were all explained with the history about each. Thanks for a great morning!
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.

We enjoyed a small intimate tour with David who was wonderful! He took us to some of the best tastes in Paris while enjoying bits of history between stops. A great introduction to Paris and its gastronomic wonders! Highly recommend this tour.
First time in Paris, my husband and I took this tour with Violet. She was fabulous --- PhD in Art History --- grew up in Paris --- a real foodie -- full of energy, personality, and warmth. We highly recommend this tour but you must ask for Violet!!
David our guide was fantastic fought opus loads of history in our walk and taught us loads about French food. Hi question was off limits and answers clearly provided. Patient as I tip rued my French and it was good to be able to assist David in return with a few English phrases.
We returned to the shops to pick up supplies for a picnic.plus we managed to find our way back to St medaled church and the street filled with great shops and restaurants. Thank you David
Really great. Guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I was the only one on the tour, lucky.
Our guide, Violette, was so knowledgeable and delightful.
