Left Bank Wine and Walking TourMeet 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.

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.

This was easily the highlight of our trip. My wife and I met our tour guide Jullien and he was the best. We walked through Montmarte and enjoyed great wines, but that wasn't even the best part. We learned so much history and fun facts. Walking through the Montmarte neighborhood with a local and enjoying wines at local spots, we felt totally immersed into Paris culture. I highly recommend this. It will be the most interesting and fun 3 1/2 hours. We enjoyed it so much, we purchased some additional cheese and meats at our last stop and enjoyed some more wine. What made it nice was that Jullien was so passionate about his city and the history. That passion was contagious and we can't wait to go back. I would absolutely do this event again, just as long as Jullien were our tour guide. A must!!!!!

This was an excellent tour where we learned about the wines of the varied wine regions in France through hands on experience at our varied stops. We learned about the history of the Paris - left bank area we walked through as we went between stops. We learned the French regions that we need to be acquiring wines from - per our tastes, as we go back to the U.S. We highly recommend this tour if you enjoy and want to learn about French wines.

Our guide was very knowledgable about French wines. He gave us a great deal of information, not only about wines, but about the Montemarte as well . He was a nice guy., and it was a fun afternoon.

While it was a rainy day, it was a great walking tour. Toured the Left Bank and Jean-Claude was an excellent guide AND an excellent wine master. Very informative about the area, history, the wine regions of France and educating us on how to better understand the wine regions and also how to get the most of our tasting experience. Made three stops at local wine bars and tasted three different wines. Great experience.

This was a fantastic experience and a highlight of our fabulous but short stay in Paris.

Our guide Elizabeth was not only delightful but she was incredibly informative. We learnt so much. She took us on a journey of understanding and appreciating French Wine. We visited 3 wine bars and the journey unfolded over that time. She tailored the wines to our tastes.

We loved the setting in the Left Bank. Neither of us had been there before which made it even more special. We particularly loved that my sister and I had Elizabeth all to ourselves!

It was a fabulous experience and I would recommend it highly to anyone with a keen interest in wine!

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.
