Fantastic! Our guide was amazing and the experience wonderful. We visited two markets and learned a great deal (and ate some of the examples).
Excellent guide and shared much information about the French culture and foods. The neighborhoods we visited were wonderful .
An excellent insight in Parisian food culture combined with an ongoing commentary on architecture, life, politics and heritage. Thoughly enjoyable.
Loved the food tour and all of the historical information!! What a great morning this was!!!
Our guide was a wonderful. We got a good feel for the neighborhood and sampled foods which were delicious. Time was not an issue and when we parted I felt like we had made a new friend. Thank you for a lovely afternoon!
Our tour was excellent! We tasted amazing Parisian foods and learned how and why food plays such an important role in French culture. Our tour guide was very educated, spoke very fluent English, and demonstrated she cared about each of our experiences--she was even willing to cater to the group's interests. The group size was appropriate--just 7 of us. Would definitely recommend for a bit of an "off-the-beaten" path experience!
Excellent tour. Meeting place was fairly easy to find (right next to the exit for the metro stop). Our tour guide was excellent. She spoke great English and gave us a history of some of the buildings we walked by during our tour. She took us to a local cheese shop (fromager), artisan bakery, wine shop, and a very nice shop that sold hundreds of different oils and vinegar (we purchased a bottle of mint olive oil and honey ginger balsamic vinegar because it tasted so good!). We were able to sample many items at each shop, plus our tour guide purchased a baguette, a bottle of wine, a couple of different cheeses, some pate and some frois gras and put together a sample spread for us at our last stop for us to chow down on. There were only four of us on the tour, so there was plenty of food for us (we couldn't even finish it all despite our tour guides pleads to eat it all) so I'm not sure if you get more or less food depending on the group size, but we definately had no complaints! A little pricy, but I felt it was an excellent way to start our trip because my wife and I purchased some cheese, wine, and a baguette later one and had a picnic at the Champs de Mars with the Eiffel Tower in our backdrop. Great experience!
Such a great tour, so much fun and very informative! About more than just food, about the city itself - great leader and excellent food. Would definitely recommend!
We highly recommend this trip. Our guide Alexandra was excellent we saw the real Paris and the food tastings were very generous.
We had a great time on our tour. We sampled wonderful food from several different specialty shops and learned about french lifestyle and culture. FYI If you are from the USA you can't bring sausages or cheese back home. Fois gras is ok but not pate. We learned tha hard way when the store said we could bring sausage home if it was vaccuum sealed. Not true. Don't waste your money, customs will confiscate it.
food was good, guide knowledgeable. all in all we had a really nice time
I highly recommend this tour, it was a fantastic experience, and great way to discover the best French food guided by an expert, who took us to great places where the refined -palate locals shop for the best. Our guide, Yves, was knowledgeable, he went the extra mile, shared his passion about Paris, its food and the culture, architecture and history which influence Parisians’ lives. The tastings were excellent!
Tour was outstanding. Yves, our guide, was fun, knowledgeable and provided a very entertaining morning. Not only did we learn about the various foods on the tour, he showed us where scenes from Midnight in Paris and other movies were filmed and gave us the lowdown on many local sights, including churches and and historic homes. A thoroughly enjoyable outing!
We had a wonderful time fasinating guide who also provided the local history of the area's we visited. A whole new view of paris.
Marion was the best! She was so upbeat even on a cold drizzly day we throughly enjoyed our food tour. Learned a great deal about the food and totally enjoyed eating it. Would highly recommend this Food Tour.
My guide, Marion, was very friendly and knowledgeable about French cuisine and the history of the area we toured.
We enjoyed the same guide from our morning tour, and she gave us excellent guidance on purchasing quality cheeses, foie gras, and salamis to take home. She included a lot of history and culture while we walked to different
shops. Highly recommend both Food Walking Tours; comfy shoes a real necessity!
A great tour to do for a potted history of France and a taste of some Fresh produce ourchased during the tour. Our guide, Marion, was informative and entertaining. Highly recommend this tour. We finished with a lunch of our purchases washed down with a local bottle of wine.
This was a great tour! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Paris as well as the gourmet French food we tried. I recommend this tour to anyone interested in fabulous food against the backdrop of a great city and its history!
This was a wonderful experience and in many ways exceeded our expectations. Adam did a wonderful job, was well-informed about the food, engaged with all/each of us, and provided a great all-around experience. We didn't want it to end.
What an unexpected highlight of Paris this tour was. Our tour guide, Marian, was absolutely charming and so friendly, bubbly and accommodating. Nothing was too much trouble. We sampled all kinds of cakes and pastries, seafood, Olive oils, cheeses, breads, coffee, small goods and wine. All in a wonderful atmosphere. We were only in Paris for two days but this was the highlight of our stay. Marian was also very knowledgeable about the area and it's history which only added to the enjoyment. I'd highly recommend this tour as it gives you a true taste of what we all expect Paris to be. Thank you.
What a fantastic way to experience the food scene in Paris. I absolutely loved the Latin Quarter, it's open markets and the wonderful specialty food shops we were introduced to. I liked experience food through the eyes of a French expert, as they knew exactly where to go and showed us the diamonds in the rough. Our guide, Yves was approachable and interesting and showed us other cultural/architectural sights in Paris besides all the food. I really enjoyed the whole tour and got to bond with my fellow tour-goes who were from all over the world. I would absolutely do something like this again, next time I'm in Paris. A+!!!
This was one of the best things I did on my Paris trip - it was so much fun and I learned so many things. I could never have found all these places by myself. Our guide was delightful and spoke perfect English. Then at the end of the tour, we got to eat all the gorgeous things she bought - divine cheeses, different baguettes, foie gras and plenty of wine to wash it all down. No need for breakfast or lunch! I would do it all again in a minute. Fab tour.

An unexpected highlight of our trip; Wonderful tour. A little expensive, but worth every penny. Sure, our guide taught us about French food, but she threw in a little more of French history, church history, architecture, and everyday life. By the way, the pastries, wine, cheeses, olive oils and foi gras were delicious. Guide was well prepared. Each shopkeeper we visited was expecting us, and treated us like long lost family members. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
This was fantastic. Marion was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgable about food, architecture and history, as well as being very friendly. Her love of food and Paris made our walk even more enjoyable. That day will stay in our memory forever. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
