David was fantastic. He is very knowledgeable and very friendly. He took time to answer all our questions and never seemed rushed. The wine and cheese were very good. All the merchants were very friendly. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great tour that took us through some markets in Paris and gave us a nice overview of the finer points of French shopping, wine, cheese and chocolate. Our guide, Francois, was very knowledgable and fun to spend time with. I would highly recommend this tour!
