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.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone whom is interested in food even those that aren't. Our guide Marian took us through the streets of the Latin quarter giving us a bit of a history lesson as we walked from shop to shop along the way gathering delicious foods for us to sample. The tour ended with a picnic made up of our delights washed down with a glass of wine. The perfect start to a great day. Many thanks to marian for making this daynso memorable.
So enjoyed the tour...it's nice that there's a blend of food and culture and even the history of the area!!! Definitely worth the money
This trip exceeded our expectations. Our delightful guide, Alexandria, took great care to explain not only the food of Paris but also the history of this great city. We strolled through the streets of the Latin Quarter, visiting a patisserie, fromagerie, wine store and frois gras specialty shop - tastting the gourmet delights along the way. A fantastic morning appreciating the delights of Paris.
This was a great tour, not only for the food, but also the quality of the tour guide.
Our guide was passionate and knowledgable about the food.
I was also lucky in that our group asked a lot of questions, so we got a lot out of the whole experience.
it was a wonderful trip and i learnt so much about the french gourmet in such a short time.
Loved our gourmet food tour !!! The food and wine was very good. However, our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Paris and the local scene, that our tour turned into a tour of local Paris! Loved it!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was so personal and informative and fun! We found it to be one of the best parts of our trip. Museums are wonderful...but this is right up there with seeing a Monet.

This was brilliant. When I booked it I was a bit dubious as I expected the usual tour guide that just does their usual spiel. I couldn't have been more wrong. We had a fantastic morning browsing the food shops, a cafe, a food market and had lots of delicious things to eat and drink. Time with our guide, Jennifer, was more like spending the morning with an old friend as we chatted about food, living in Paris, politics and history. She also showed us around a lovely area of Paris giving us a closer look at the real Paris. Excellent.
