Trying some gourmet French food is an essential part of any stay in Paris. This small-group walking tour introduces you to the art of French cuisine from a local perspective. Meet your culinary guide in the Latin Quarter for your tour. Set off on a leisurely 3-hour walking tour of the historic streets, stopping along the way to see local markets, bakeries and specialty food shops. The exact itinerary will vary based on your small group’s preference and the season, but you can expect to sample staples of the French diet such as handcrafted cheeses, baguettes and other delicacies. And of course, no food tour of Paris would be complete without a glass of fantastic French wine. Your guide will share insight into how these delicious products are made, provide info about the French gastronomy tradition, and share stories and historical facts that have made the neighborhood so iconic. Feel free to ask as many questions as you like, and even make purchases apart from the tastings, to take a taste of Paris home with you.
