What You Can Expect

Paris Left Bank Wine Tasting and Walk

Explore Paris and taste some delicious wines on this wine and walking tour

Book your wine tour in the Left Bank or Montmartre and make your own way to the starting point. After meeting your wine-expert guide, spend time exploring your chosen district, stopping along the way at different wine bars and cafés popular with the locals.

Enjoy three wine tastings during your tour, and in-between, get acquainted with the highlights and hidden corners of the district. Admire the landmarks, delve down side streets and soak up the village atmosphere as your guide elaborates on its local history and way of life. While the routes may vary according to the day, both tours last around 3 hours and end in the district they focus on.

Left Bank Wine and Walking Tour (3 hours)
Meet your guide in the vibrant Left Bank area of Paris near the Seine River, and set out down the cobbled Rue Mouffetard, known for its food shops and markets.

Hear about the street’s history and links to late author Ernest Hemingway, before visiting a wine bar and enjoying your first wine tasting. After, resume your travels, passing Saint-Medard Church and a bar made famous by the movie Amélie, on route to the Panthéon, a temple commissioned by French king Louis XV in 1744.

After admiring the Panthéon, stop for a second wine tasting and then continue past the Sorbonne University to the Seine River before heading inside a wine shop offering local favorites and seasonal choices.

Settle into the traditional interior for your third wine tasting, and then finish your tour at a neighborhood bistro.

Montmartre Wine and Walking Tour (3 hours)
Make your own way to the Montmartre district, meet your knowledgeable guide, and head for your first stop, Paris’ last working vineyard.

Take in the sight of the leafy vines flanked by houses and hear about its history and wine production. Then, stroll into picturesque Montmartre to the tree-lined Place du Tertre, filled with outdoor art stalls. Learn how the area inspired artists such as Renoir and Picasso, and delve into the cobbled streets to seek out the best wine bars.

Stop at three traditional bars and sample a delicious wine in each as you learn how it’s made by some of France’s smaller producers. As you sip, chat over the wine’s characteristics with your guide and the rest of your group.

Lastly, walk up to the hilltop Sacré Coeur Basilica and absorb the sweeping views over Paris. Then, finish your tour with a third wine tasting before saying goodbye to your guide.

Jean was very knowledgable about both the history of wine, and the Montmortre area. It's a beautiful part of Paris that we never would have explored had it not been for this tour.

A delicious and superb afternoon with Charlotte! It was just my wife and I...Charlotte took us to some great local spot, we sampled some great wines and took in some great scenery and enjoyable shop along the way. What a wonderful way to be introduced to some of Paris's local/off the touristy routes. Merci Beaucoup Charlotte! à bientôt !

Most fun part of our trip. Met Elizabeth our guide in a great neighborhood outside the tourist zone of Paris. Elizabeth was highly knowledgable and a great guide. Money well spent.

There were only 2 of us on the tour. Charlotte was an excellent guide. She was knowledgeable about wines from France and also knew about the area. We felt that we learnt not only about wine and the Left Bank but about life as a Parisian.

Another of our favorite tours on our trip. We had booked this tour assuming there would be 6-10 people on the tour, but we got very lucky and it was just the two of us and our guide. Since it was just the 3 of us, we were able to take our time and enjoy our guide's extensive wine knowledge and knowledge of the history of the area. We drank glasses of wine and walked and talked and had a terrific day. We know the tour ran longer then its scheduled time, but that's because we were enjoying each other's company so much that we ended up just sitting at cafes and chatting while drinking (and learning) about wine. A great great great tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2013

Tour was excellent! We learned so much about wine. He guided us through the different smells in a very unique way that we all enjoyed. We were shown how to taste the wine and pick up the different tastes. We learned that when ordering wine in France you order by region not grape. He was willing to answer all our questions and we never felt rushed. He spoke about the part of the city we were in which was very interesting. This was definitely a highlight of the trip. I highly recommend to anyone who was interested in wine. Our guide was outstanding!

We spent a wonderful three-and-a-half hours with Karim on this tour. He certainly is a professional wine enthusiast and is passionate about sharing his knowledge of wines. We enjoyed walking through the Mouffetard area (5th arrondissement) of Paris and then spending time at two bars becoming immersed in the dos and don’ts of French white and red wines. Karim was extremely likeable and pleasant, and was very attuned to his group’s lack of or minimal knowledge of wines. He made sure that every member of the group understood what he was saying by never moving onto a new concept too quickly. His games were fun and it makes one want to continue learning more about wines and even wine pairings with different foods. Thoroughly enjoyable and very worthwhile!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2011

Our guide, Kirim was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about both the wines he selected and the sights of the area. Tour lasted 4+ hours and could have gone even longer. I highly recommend it!
