Our tour guide Caroline was so knowledgeable and took the time to tell the story of every landmark we were interested in. She took us to so many delicious places, with my favourite a little wine bar where we were spoilt for great food. Highly recommend this tour around Montmarte!
We thoroughly enjoyed the wonderful food, wine and insight into the French people and culture. The walk was a bit difficult as there was a lot of hills, but we took it slowly. We stopped at several places to taste the food and continued walking. For those who do not like to walk and eat, this could be an issue.
The wine and cheese bar we went to was great and we enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere.
We did not realize we would be seeing Paris from above at Montmarte - but it was a wonderful bonus. The view was spectacular.
All in all it was an enjoyable afternoon that I definitely would repeat.
My partner and I loved this walking and tasting tour. We met our guide Christine, who was incredibly friendly, warm, and knowledgeable, at an outdoor food market in the morning. She was very passionate about her country, history, and the information was delivered in such a way that we felt like we were the first people with whom she had shared her knowledge. We started the tour in what I consider to be nirvana--a beautiful Fromagerie with a huge variety of cheeses and charcuterie. Christine taught us so much about the origins of the food names, and very importantly, the pride Parisians take in food preparation, presentation, and why they brand meats and poultry so one knows exactly where that protein comes from. We saw the freshest vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, sausages, and of course, breads and pastries. We also enjoyed seeing lovely shops, churches, and ancient, narrow streets and buildings. If you're a foodie or history buff, you MUST experience this tour. It's unforgettable. We adored Christine!!
Marc , the tour guide was great ! The walk was wonderful with the Sacra Coeur as the delightful destination .
Louanna was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. The added historical information was great!
You will love this tour! And, if you are lucky enough to get Elizabeth as your tour guide, you are in for a treat. She was wonderful. French culture and food are so intertwined and Elizabeth was expert at discussing both. A lovely couple joined us as we traveled through an open market, gourmet cheese shop, fabulous pastry shop, corner cafe, and charming wine shop. All the vendors were so informative and friendly. This was definitely one of the highlights of our Paris stay! Thank you Elizabeth.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. We met at a outdoor food market early in the morning. A great chance to see how the locals buy their staples- fresh and colorful vegetables, meat, fish, cheese, bread.. Our guide Elizabeth- who was wonderful- took us through the market, explaining the how the different items were paired, cooked, etc. She took us to a near by award winning cheese shop where we sampled wonderful cheeses, then a great pastry shop and more samples! As we walked through the area St. Germain, 5th district I think, Elizabeth pointed out beautiful churches, shops, etc. We stopped and had coffee at a great little outdoor coffee shop/cafe. We finished at a local wine shop, where, as the owner explained the different wines we would taste, Elizabeth prepared the cheeses, baguettes and foie gras she had picked up along the way. Then the wine tasting and snacking began! We highly recommend this tour!
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Melissa was very knowledgeable about the Latin Quarter area and history and taught us a ton about all the food we saw. We learned all about different cheeses, wines and what to look for in a properly handmade baguette. The tour started with some pastries so don't eat breakfast then we walked around to different shops, learning and gathering food to put all together for the tasting at wine shop at the end. We were staying in the area and were very glad we did this at the beginning of stay. Melissa helped us get our bearings in the neighborhood and had great recommendations for restaurants to try over the rest of our trip. Only downside was that a few of the shops, including the meeting spot, were closed in August - but there were still plenty a great places open to make the tour worth it.
Our guide, David, was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and interesting. He provided all kinds of background, history and insight into France's food history and the artisans, trade and craftspeople who produce the amazing food. I recommend the tour and would recommend that you ask for David. He is warm, smart, entertaining and a great host!
Mark was a terrific guide. He explained many of the French Cheeses, breads, and other foods in great detail. He showed us some very unique sites in the Latin Quarter and answered our many questions. A wonderful experience!
This is one of the most fun things we did in Paris. We toured Montmartre with our guide Eve. She did a wonderful job of describing things and pointing out cool little shops to check out. Because it rained she spent longer with us to make sure our experience was memorable. We tasted many local foodstuffs and generally had a good time. I would highly recommend Eve as a guide.
What a great time walking the St Germain area and spending time sampling the market produce and that of the specialist formageries and Boulangeries. Our guide was super informative on the area and the artisans producing the food and we had a memorable amble around the district capped of with tastings of the produce and wine. Formidable!
Lovely to have a walk and talk and taste around a new area of Paris.
Have been back to some of the hidden haunts
We loved this tour. This intimate tour really showed us what French culture is all about. Mark was friendly and informative. It's more of casual tour which we needed after running around Paris fitting everything in. It ended with us being at the Sacre Coeur. Mark's knowledge along with the beautiful area of Montmartre really hooked us, so we will return to this beautiful area. The mixture of a walking tour with wines and food made it one to remember. I would recommend this tour fully!
Great food and walking tour. Bread, cheese, and wine in Paris. There are worse ways to spend a morning.

This is an exceptional tour. I did the Montmartre version and it was splendid. I love that part of Paris and it was great to hear all of the history and see the many unique things to see. A must do.
Definitely worth doing when in Paris! Our guide was excellent and knew what we were looking for and showed us some nice sights. We were lucky enough to have a private tour on this day, as no one else had signed up!
Roberto was learned, knowledgeable, fun, and a terrific guide. He took our group to very interesting tasting places and also showed us special sites on this Paris walk. We were so very pleased with this tour.
We were also very impressed with the back office - Mike - and Viator's care and concern about us and making sure we were properly taken care of on this tour.
We received true customer service which was greatly appreciated by us!
We loved our guide and the food stops we were taken to. We often fondly think about what we saw and did on this tour.
Excellent! You will get a taste of the gourmand side with this tour. Christine is a awesome knowledgeable and entertaining guide and highly recommend this tour!!
David was an excellent guide! We went during a particularly cold winter day in Montmatre, so it turned out we were the only two booked for the tour. He showed us a wonderful time and some great food as well. His knowledge and explanations of the history and culture of the area were top notch, and he was extremely friendly and helpful. He did his best to help educate us in a simple way, even go so far as to pronounce names and places in both English and French and spell them to help us learn as much as we could. He would be exceptional especially for someone new to Paris it was not our first trip as he provided plenty of information of other places to visit and things to do.
Even though the tour was a 3 hour walking tour it was very easy going as the distance covered was small visiting a bakery, street food market, fromagerie and then to friends nosh off, wine tasting along with eating some of the produce purchased by the tour guide earlier of cheeses and fois gras - all delicious!
The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly.
Highly recommend doing this tour.
This walking gourmet French food tour of the Latin Quarter was everything I'd hoped for. I wanted to understand what made French food French and my guide truly had a lot of knowledge and made the experience so enjoyable. The food was delicious and the guide also provided a lot of history about the area and Paris in general. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in knowing about Paris and French food.
