The Les Halles quarter of Paris is traditionally known as the belly of Paris.

Savor tasty Artisan cheeses from across France in a traditional, local fromagerie, and delicate flavored fine chocolates from an Artisan chocolatier. Then its time for a visit to the oldGare de l|est (and possibly most beautiful) patisserie in Paris, founded by the baker to Queen Marie in 1730 - also the inventor of the Baba au rhum. Winners of several awards, including BGare de l|est Chocolate Eclair, choose your favorite pastries to be savored later over lunch. The last stop is a beautifully restored epicerie, where you'll try traditional delicacies from the South WGare de l|est of France.

Your expert guide will also point out a centuries-old oyster house (the oysters were originally rushed to Paris by horse), as well as will highlight traditional butchers, fishmongers, and grocers as you wander along this fascinating street. For the cooks among you, particularly pastry lovers, dont miss the wonderful suppliers of kitchenware and ingredients, including one of the oldest supply stores in Paris.

    This rateing is long overdue. This was the best tour we have ever been on! We were fed breakfast, snacked on cheeses, meats, chocolates, desert pastries, then we had lunch and wine! This tour was well worth the money, and gave us a Paris experience we would never have gotten on our own. The tour guide was amazing! The vendors were kind, and educated us on the food...each time our guide took us somewhere new I was more and more amazed at the quality and quantity this tour offers. I cannot say enough good things. The guide herself was wonderful! She seemed more like a friend you haven't seen in a while, who was eager to show you the real Parisian experience than a formal boring tour guide with a script. If you are thinking of booking any tour in Paris...book this one!!!!

    This is the best food tour I have ever been on! Not only do you get to taste so many different types of French food but you also have breakfast, lunch and a wine tasting. We met our fantastic guide Caroline at 10.30 and after a short tour we arrived at a small bakery where we had a typical French breakfast with coffee and French pastries. The croissant I had was so delicious you could really taste the butter. You could also see where the baker made the bread and pastries. After breakfast we moved on to a really famous patisserie and our guide told us about the history of the place and then we got to taste a yummy mini eclair and choose a dessert for later. Next it was time for the chocolate stop and there were so many to choose from. Now it was time for some savoury food and our guide took us to a beautiful cheese shop which had 100s of cheeses displayed in their window. Our fourth stop was in a restaurant where we tried a selection of their home made pates, hams, sausages and to top it off, foie gras!! The tour ended in a small wine bar where we tasted 3 glasses of wine while the sommelier explained the different types of wine, their tastes and where they were made. The wine was accompanied by a lunch that the guide had bought at the places we had visited during the tour. The tour was so enjoyable because our guide, Caroline, was fun, friendly and passionate. Each place we visited and each food we tried was accompanied by stories that linked the food with the French culture and history. Definitely Money Well Spent! Thank you so much Caroline and Memories.
