With Hira at Food Tours, we had the best food tour ever! It was a fun way to experience a variety of foods while learning more about the neighborhood. In an old wine cellar, we finished with a tasting. Which was great because it turned out to be chilly and a little bit rainy outside. All of the cuisines was prepared for us by Hira, who was highly knowledgeable about France! She brought me a small quiche to replace the meat since I am a vegetarian, which I greatly appreciated! I highly recommend everyone to take this tour!

What a fantastic way to get a taste of Parisian culture! Yann, our tour guide, did a great job showing us around Paris's streets and introducing us to many of the neighborhood food stores. We stopped at various shops along the route to collect food, and once we were all seated, we sampled everything! During our stay in Paris, this was one of our favorite tours. Would strongly recommend it.

My wife and I enjoyed our tour of Le Marais and learned a lot about the area's history, culture, and delectable French cuisine (including croissants, chocolate, tea, cheese, wine, and falafel). For our small party, our tour guide, Ingrid, spoke fantastic English and was incredibly informative. The ease and pleasure of our trips to all the shops were a result of Ingrid's local expertise and acquaintance with the store owners.
I absolutely recommend this tour for adding information to your vacation to Paris and enhancing your appreciation of other aspects of it.

Eating! It was wonderful to stroll through the Montmarte area and stop by the many shops, and everything of the food that we were given to sample was amazing. Hira, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the food, its history in Paris, as well as interesting tidbits about the area and city. She also recommended restaurants and places to go while we were there. We had a blast and would definitely do it again.

This was the second time we had used Food Tours to learn more about a place and its food culture. Despite the fact that we have visited Paris quite often, we frequently return to the same spots. That is what attracted us to this trip as we haven't spent much time in Montmartre. The journey began promptly with a stop for macarons and chocolate. I had never understood the buzz surrounding macarons before this stop, but it made me a convert. Agatha slipped inside a cheese shop, a bakery, and a butcher shop. She put together a feast of baguettes, cheeses, charcuterie, and wines along the road, which we enjoyed at a table in a hotel along the way. All 12 participants had plenty to eat and drink before leaving. We ended with a stop for dessert crepes that, despite us being more than full, we managed to complete. Agatha did an excellent job of talking about the delicacies, describing their origins, and suggesting which wines would emphasize the tastes.

What a wonderful way to wrap up our mother-daughter trip to Paris! A food and wine tour seemed like a nice bonus since we were ready to explore Montmartre, but it far exceeded our expectations. The meal we had was some of the best Paris had to offer, according to Agatha, who was beautiful and a pleasure to talk to. The secret location at the end of the tour was ideal for having fun as a group. She made our tour of the city one that would attract us to want to see and do more. I would encourage EVERYONE to consider this experience highly recommended! ??

Our tour guide was Leo, and he was SPECTACULAR!!! Leo made our trip even more special because we were there for my friend's bachelor party. He was really interesting, knowledgable, and courteous. His suggestions were all spot on. Because they were so wonderful, we even returned to the locations after the tour was complete and bought a ton more delicious items. I would absolutely do it again and would highly suggest this tour, especially with Leo.

Aicha was our favorite component for this tour! Such a sweet, modest young woman. She has a servant's heart at her core. Aicha was particularly considerate of the old woman, who was walking with a cane, making sure she had a seat and wasn't left too far behind the others. The tour's culinary items were all fantastic, and the vendors were all incredibly friendly and gracious. My clients who were with me as travel advisors were completely amazed! Bravo, Secrets!

Theo, our tour guide, offered us a taste of the history and cuisine of Paris' Marais neighborhood. On this particularly hot afternoon, he was very knowledgeable, considerate of our needs, and entertaining. It made for a fantastic day of meeting new people, touring this stunning city, and stuffing oneself with delectable food!
By the time this trip is up, you will be stuffed!

...a pleasure to work with. Following a prompt payment confirmation email, they send us a thorough email outlining the meeting location for our tour tickets. We arrived at the meeting location a few minutes early and ran across Louis (with his orange umbrella). He added that since no one else had signed up, this would be a private tour—bonus!—after the introductions.
Louie was a pleasant guy who was very knowledgeable about the background and surroundings of Montmartre.
On the tour, he gave us a lot of background information on the places we were passing by or seeing. He would explain the wines, desserts, cheeses, and meats that were being sampled. He called our attention to details or hidden treasures that we would have likely passed by if we had been exploring on our own.
We made a total of five breaks, two of which were brief while the other three required us to sit down. The time we spent with Louie was wonderful and relaxed. We took a snapshot at the end of the evening, which he emailed to us with information about the sites, wines, and meals we had during the tour.
I would advise everyone visiting Paris to do this tour. The event was definitely worth the cost.
