A really great tour, not only terrific food stops but also extremely interesting history of the area. Alexandra is very knowledgable and showed us little tucked away 'courtyards' that, having been alone, we would have walked straight past. Really delicious tastings just the best croissants! and well worth the money. We would take another tour with Alexandra without hesitation.
great tour- both for places visited and an exceptional tour guide
Our tour guide Charlotte was fabulous, friendly and heaps of fun. It felt like we were visiting the markets etc with a good friend. We had the best croissant we had ever had, sumptuous fruits and berries from the market, delicious wine and the biggest oysters we had ever seen. This was my hubby's favourite tour. less touristy and more authentic. Thanks so much Charlotte we had an awesome time.
Fantastic tour and our guide young French woman was such fun and she lead us on a interesting and delicious tour. I would thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.
Guide was knowledgeable, food was fantastic and atmosphere electric. Great tour.
What a fab tour. Our guide Charlotte? was welcoming knowledgeable funny and helpful. NB no need for lunch afterwards.
Absolutely brilliant. The lady who led us around gave us a lot of history of the area and showed us many places that we would never have found. The portions were generous and the small group was not overwhelming.
A must-do if you are in Paris. The Bastille Market is absolutely fabulous and after the tour
you can wander around on your own for hours. Very interesting !
I booked this trip for some US friends who are all big foodies. There were just the four of us in the end so a private tour, led by guide Alex who was both friendly and knowledgeable. We learned lots of history and saw many hidden city spots, as well as the foodie stuff. Visited several shops and the outdoor markets and got to sample more goodies than we expected. Coffee, croissants and bread, market cherries, tarte flambé French style pizza with cheese, onions and bacon, a fantastic plate of cheeses and a massive glass of wine mid morning. Plenty of opportunity to shop for foodstuffs if required. A good pace and distance and a really good experience. One of the highlights of our Paris trip. Would definitely recommend :
We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide was so knowledgable with Paris history that we wished we would have taken the tour on the first day we arrived instead of on the last. It was also nice that even though there were certain locations that were set up to stop at we didn't feel rushed at all !!! I highly recommend this tour !!! Well worth the cost !
fantastic we loved this tour and was our favorite loved our guide alexandra!
We took the food and market tour last week and it was one of the best experiences we had in Paris. In addition to the food market, our guide showed us a little bit of history between the meeting point and the market. In addition to the samples provided as part of the tour, we also had a wide assortment of fresh fruits as we walked though the market. I would recommend this to anyone staying in Paris.
Alexandra our tour guide was delightful. I had never visited the Bastille and her history of the area was fantastic. There were plenty of tastings, defiantly don't have breakfast before hand. The markets were colourful. I really enjoyed the morning. I'd highly recommend it to any foody.
This is a must. We were able to see working Paris from a foodie point of view. Highly recommend.
Just the 2 of us! Brilliant and I teresti g tour. Highly recommend it.
A first rate guide. for someone going to Paris this is a must. Chris.
We really enjoyed this food market tour even though it was a bitter cold morning. Our guide Alexandria was very informative and knowledgable about local history, the local area, as well as many aspects of food production and marketing. Her style was chatty and friendly. The market stall holders were happy for us to taste different foods and the owners of the wine shop would have been happy to open another bottle for us. We revisited the market again during our stay in Paris and we're glad that we did this early on in our stay.
Our tour guide, Alexandra, gave us a good background of the history of the area. We saw some unusual places that I want to return to get some furniture made. It was a good value for the tour and the samples of food and wine.
This was a fun tour. Our guide, Alexandra, was charming and informative. She explained the history of the Bastille area and the market area as we moved along our tour route. We visited a variety of shops and market stalls. She had great information at each stop. She helped people in the group order from the market stalls and shops. This was a highlight of our visit to Paris.
Very educational. She did an excellent job and we all felt we learned a lot and tasted a lot of foods.
Our guide was so knowledgeable and so friendly. We learned a tremendous amount about the history of Paris as a city and she took us to great places as part of the food tour. I highly recommend this tour.
A great way to see areas of Paris. Our guide was very informative and good fun. The food we got to experience was excellent! A good way to sample some great food and markets of Paris.
We loved this! We had a group of 4 and a friendly and informative guide. The guide filled us in on a lot of the history of Paris and this area which was most fascinating and was able to answer a whole lot of questions we had been bottling up. The food was delicious - I wished we had done this earlier in our stay. Great value for money.
