Venture inside some of Paris’ best patisseries to sample exquisite French pastries and chocolates, and head to an iconic wine bar that is known for serving fresh oysters alongside crisp glasses of muscadet wine. Throughout your small-group tour, you’ll enjoy six different food tastings in gourmet shops and at the market.
Marché d’Aligre lies right in the heart of the Bastille district, and is sure to be the highlight of your morning. Consisting of two parts -- a covered area called Marché Beauveau and an open-air square -- the cosmopolitan market is huge and knowing what spots to visit can be tricky. Luckily, your expert guide will be there to show you to the best stalls! You’ll also have time to browse the market independently, shopping for all your gourmet desires.
Before your tour ends, your guide will introduce you to a little-known elevated garden walkway that was created from old train tracks. This gorgeous garden is a real insider’s secret, and you’ll finish your tour feeling like you know the captivating Bastille district just like a food-loving local.

We were the only guests on this tour and our guide was just wonderful. She not only gave us a wonderful journey through the markets (tasting as we went) but shared the history of the neighborhood and took us to visit craftspersons as well. The stop at le
Baron Rouge was interesting as my friend took a picture of the proprietor and got quite the lecture on French photo ettiquette. A fun visit to 'old Paris'

Loved this tour! We went in winter and it was perfect, our guide Anne-Marie was wonderful. The Bastille district was lovely. We had the best croissants, cheese, bread and wine I've ever tasted. Loved walking around on a lazy Sunday. Definitely worth it!
