    My husband and I enjoyed the gastronomy tour of the Latin District with Barbara. Despite 10 trips to France, this was our first visit to the 5th Arrondissement. We had a great time! We learned a great deal about the history. We walked to the main part of town, to the education centers, to the weekly market, the frommage shop, the wine store, the delicious croissant/patisserie shop and happily sampled foods as we walked. Our gathering for tasting the foods we purchased was a delight. I highly recommend this tour and Barbara is fabulous!

    Our guide was not only extremely knowledgeable about the district and the food that we were discussing but she was humorous and had a vast knowledge of sustainable and conscientious culinary habits, which really made the visit that much more educational. She also was a restaurant critic so she was able to discuss sourcing and preparation techniques of the French food.

    A very good tour of the Latin Quarter with history, bread, cheese, and wine. Our guide was interesting and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed it!!

    David was incredibly patient and kind. He showed us all the shops where we could find typical French food, but we especially enjoyed his history discussions. He was easy to talk to and we enjoyed his perspectives very much. He went above and beyond by walking us most of the way back to the hotel because he wanted to make sure we didn’t get lost. What a kind soul.

    FYi- I am not someone who complains online like this, but I feel it necessary to post this someone who is planning a trip and thinks this sounds like a real food tour. My family enjoys going on food tours in new cities, to walk around and learn about the culture and enjoy some food of another culture. We have done this in many places, and at this price point, over $100 per person, we are used to experiencing a well thought out and interesting sampling of a menu, and at least enough food to feel like we've actually eaten something. If you are interested in a "Paris Food Tour: French Gastronomy and History" -skip this completely, and look at other companies like Eating Europe. We recently did this tour, expecting what was advertised, fois gras, french specialities, an education about french cuisine and history. This was not delivered, at all. The absolute bare minimum: one bite of chocolate per person, 1 croissant, 1 snail, and 3 bites of cheese. And a glass of table wine. After the tour, I wrote to Viator to express my dissatisfaction in the tour, and said how surprised I was by both the menu and the teeny portion- and no real education about these foods- after spending over $500 for my family. We had all read the description of the tour beforehand and were so excited to learn about cooking and french cuisine, etc. Their response was not kind at all, no acknowledgement that their advertising a French Gastronomy tour was the least bit misleading, and a refusal to make any sort of adjustments. They also argued with me when I pointed out that the cheese platter we were given that was cut for 2 people was was more than enough for 5 people to share. What I asked for was a refund of a small percentage of what we paid. I got a very dismissive email back. Overall a very unpleasant experience, and very shocking customer service. (Though the tour guide was a very nice man.) There are many companies that offer real food tours, I highly recommend you skip this one!!

    I did not leave this tour being wow-ed. Had some great bites along the way, but ultimately I felt like I could have accomplished the same thing by myself.

    We had a small tour with Camilla on a Sunday morning. The perfect way to see Paris. We felt like we had it all to ourselves. She was very sweet and we had so many wonderful treats packed with hustory
