Small-Group Gourmet Food and Market Tour of the Bastille District in Paris

Small-Group Paris Food Tour: Bastille District and Marche d'Aligre

Your 3-hour tour starts in the heart of Paris’ Bastille district, home to one of the most authentic and traditional Parisian markets – Marché d’Aligre. After meeting your knowledgeable guide, set off on a leisurely walking tour around the area, visiting quality artisan delicatessens and off-the-beaten-path sights, as well as the famous market itself.

Venture inside some of Paris’ best patisseries to sample exquisite French pastries and chocolates, and head to an iconic wine bar that is known for serving fresh oysters alongside crisp glasses of muscadet wine. Throughout your small-group tour, you’ll enjoy six different food tastings in gourmet shops and at the market.

Marché d’Aligre lies right in the heart of the Bastille district, and is sure to be the highlight of your morning. Consisting of two parts -- a covered area called Marché Beauveau and an open-air square -- the cosmopolitan market is huge and knowing what spots to visit can be tricky. Luckily, your expert guide will be there to show you to the best stalls! You’ll also have time to browse the market independently, shopping for all your gourmet desires.

Before your tour ends, your guide will introduce you to a little-known elevated garden walkway that was created from old train tracks. This gorgeous garden is a real insider’s secret, and you’ll finish your tour feeling like you know the captivating Bastille district just like a food-loving local.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Our guide, Alexandra, was excellent! She knew where to take us and shared many anecdotes and tips about how seriously the French take their produce. The pace was just right and anyone- you don't have to be a foodie- would have enjoyed this tour. We sampled as we went along and she was so knowledeable about the area and made delicious choices for us. We liked the indoor and outdoor markets so much we went back on our own later in the week to make purchases.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

This was the most memorable little tour of our entire Paris trip. In spite of dreary weather, we enjoyed the walk. The little shops were places we never would have found on our own. Food sampling was fun and educational. Tour guide was top notch. Highly recommend this tour if you do nothing else....
