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.
Highly recommended. We explored all the local shops, delicatessens, patisseries and little laneways, and the samples were just amazing.

Fantastic! Eve was a wonderful guide and we learnt many fascinating things about French cheeses, fish, meats and fruit and veg, pastries and wine. A highlight of my stay in Paris.
Our tour guides were great! The spots we checked out were very interesting and the guides were flexible in adapting to the weather.
This was the first tour of our ten day stay in Paris and it was marvelous. We had a small group and Stephan was our guide and host. We loved learning about and sampling the various breads, cheeses, pastries and meats during our walking tour of the Latin Quarter. Stephan shared the history of the area including the background of the Pantheon and the church of St. Etienne. We ended with a stop at a local small eatery where we sampled a number of cheeses and meats including foie gras and of course wine! A wonderful way to begin our stay in Paris. We definitely recommend this tour!
Absolutely worth it. My host was so knowledgeable and entertaining. Wonderful trip through markets and gastronomy areas in the Latin Quarter. Amazing day and I learnt so much about food and history.
We had Melissa and she was great. Love the yummy cheese, pastries and bagettes. I loved hearing about the history of the areas as well.
Caroline was an incredible tour guide. She was knowledgeable, clearly engaged in her work and made the extra effort to ensure all of us had a nice experience. I would recommend this tour to everyone ... I am a serious foodie and learned a few new things about cheese, wine and food handling in Paris.
A trip highlight! Stevan our guide was able to incorporate all aspects of French life into our tour. Food was special, bought as we walked along and then sampled at final stop with wine. A must do. We did our tour in the Latin Quarter

With Cedric, the tour guide, a Gourmet French Food Tour booked by Viator Tours through Pariss Montmartre district is a saunter not just in and out of top-notch French pastry shops, but also a trip through French history. Meeting at the Blanche metro station, Cedric warmly greeted me, and we started out on our adventure, despite our being a party of only two. The tour, operated by a local group, was billed as a small group excursion with a max of 8 people, but was guaranteed to run without a minimum. My trip was just after floods and strikes had hampered tourism in the city, but the local tour administration had reassured me via email that the tour would go as scheduled, and so it did.
Cedric enthusiastically shared his love of Paris while leisurely wandering through town. From pointing out the inner citys original Roman wall boundaries on a nearby transit map to leading the way to a sweeping view of Paris from the steps of Sacre Coeur, Cedrics walking tour was insightful, fascinating, interesting and, above all, a delicious tasting of Paris!
Our guide was very well informed and had ton of information both historically and currently - the food she selected was fabulous - I enjoyed it tremendously --
Our guide Stefan was very knowledgeable and we didn and #39;t just learn about the different breads, wine, cheeses and foie gras but also about architecture and history! I enjoyed it immensely!
Much fun and informational on many more topics than food. Would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide, Riberto, was wonderful. His knowledge was incredible, his demeanor was charming, and he brought us into another world for a few hours. His charm did not stop when the tour ended. He was gracious enough to help us find the right bus when the trains closed because of possible flooding. We felt as if Riberto was our personal concierge for the 1/2 day!
There was only my husband and and myself on the tour and our guide, David, was fantastic. He tailored the tour to cover our interests. We had such a wonderful, informative time with him. He gave us so much information about Paris that we didn't know. The food tasting at the end was delicious and we felt like we had made a friend. We asked for a suggestion for dinner and he walked us to the restaurant and helped us make a booking, his recommendation was fabulous. Can't speak highly enough of David. He sat and had coffee with us after so we could continue chatting and showed us how to buy a metro ticket. Such a lovely guy.
Loved this trip down Sunday morning was perfect! Dancing in little plazas, locals market, and sweet treats and pate. Yummy
Melissa Neto did a great job,. She knows her food and Paris, giving us the option of going by areas we had not seen as we went through our tour. We had a chance to visit some interesting Paris neighborhoods and an open air food market. Overall, an excellent tour.
What a fun thing to do! This walking tour was a delight. There were two of us on the tour with two guides one in training. We walked all around the left bank, learned about history, art, cheese, breads and wine. At the end of the tour we sat in a shop and tasted what we had acquired on the walk - I would highly recommend this and can't wait to do another walk with Meet the French.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. A thoroughly enjoyable morning spent with our very knowledgable guide, Melissa. We visited the food market, several gourmet food shops and she also shared interesting information about the history of the Latin Quarter. Afterward we sat down and had a chance to taste all the food we had encountered on the way. Because we were only two people on the tour, it felt like we were exploring Paris with a friend. Melissa also gave us a recommendation and helped us book for a really great restaurant later for a special occasion later in the week. Highly, highly recommend this tour with Melissa.
Very informative tour with insights into the origins and differences of various foods. Melissa was extremely knowledgable, professional, and answered any questions we had with passion. Highly recommended.
