  • Great host a great day a little history and lots of food

  • Our guide, Arthur, was on time for our adventure around the Marais district of Paris. He made our walk leisurely while pointing out the most important details and history of this historic neighborhood in Paris. We soon decided that it was our new favorite district! We stopped along the way to eat at three different pastry shops I wont give the shop names awaybut I would not have known about them had Arthur not pointed them out to us that we wouldnt have discovered on our own. We ended our tour with a much needed, relaxing wine and cheese tasting with with a freindly wine-enthusiast merchant who told us all about the wine and cheese regions of Franceand he was not stingy with the wines, either. We had a grand time talking with our fellow walkers and with Arthureven past the time that our tour was ended. This is well worth the money spent.

  • This was fabulous! Highly recommend. Learned so much of Paris/ French history along the way. Tasted wonderful pastries , macaroon, candies, wine and cheese. Our tour guide Hannah Meltzer was outstanding. Would do this again!

  • I love Paris food tours- I mean, Paris and Food.....what's not to love? This one was fun with lots of cultural and history tid bits thrown in with the delish food. Highly recommend to anyone thinking to combing food and Paris.

  • This was the best tour I have ever taken!!!! Ellen our guide was amazing knowledgeable intelligent and incredibly accommodating. The food was delicious and plentiful, and the people we met were personable. I loved the small group, it really allowed you to understand the culture and neighborhood. I would highly highly recommend this tour....I have never written a review, but this was truly the most memorable and best tour I have ever taken!!!

  • Very disappointing - I arrived at the location at 1.30pm and could not find the guide, as I was leaving at 2.30pm I happened to see a woman with a shoulder bag walking away with the name of the tour operator that I was looking for and approached her otherwise I would have missed this tour.

  • The small group Paris tour was a real joy. Rafael, our guide, was charming and knowledgeable. The pace was perfect and he showed us a side to Marais I had not seen in other visits. The food was delicious and the site selected for our sit down bread, cheese and charcuterie was a delight.

  • Fantastic tour with a great tour guide -Tim Strolled around Le Marais and tasted some wonderful food, drank some wine and was given background knowledge of the area. Highly recommend this tour

  • If you do this make it in your first day in Lyon. It was our 6th day and we had eaten at both of the restaurants and learned all about the city
