Like what you see? That's because we want you to experience all of France's finest foods, which is why we're the only tour company offering stops for famous French oysters and a sit-down dinner.

French Oysters and Champagne

Your tour begins in typical Paris fashion—with champagne! Enjoy a crisp glass of the bubbly accompanied by oysters to give you a real taste of France. Your guide will tell you all there is to know about these delectable treats before you head off to the next stop.

Cheese and Wine Tasting

No Paris food tour would be complete without cheese. At this stop, you'll learn how cheese is integral to the France’s cuisine and culture. You'll stop at our local favorite wine and cheese shop to sample some incredible pairings.

Paris Street Food: Falafel

With a rich Middle Eastern culture in Paris, falafel has been adopted as one of the city’s favorite street food snacks, and there’s much debate about who makes the best ones. Your guide will take you to one of our absolute favorite falafel shops for a real Paris street food experience.

Classic Beef Bourguignon

Next, your tour will head to a local brasserie for a hearty sit-down meal. There, you’ll be able to experience another French delicacy: beef bourguignon accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and a delicious glass of red wine. Beef bourguignon is cooked slowly until it almost falls apart, before simmering with a mixture of local vegetables. Sit back, relax, and let your taste buds do the work.

Sweet French Dessert

You’ll finish a fabulous evening off with one of two amazing local desserts. Crème brûlée is a sweet vanilla cream served with a layer of crunchy, caramelized sugar. Crème caramel, on the other hand, has a clear caramel coat on top rather than the harder sugar layer. It's the sweetest way to end your food tour of Paris.

We loved this experience and it was a perfect way to end our final night in Paris. Our tour guide, Julie, was exceptional, we truly can’t say enough about her. She loves her job and it shows. She shared so much information about the area of Le Marais and Paris history. We visited four different restaurants and they all unique and special. First you start out at cheese restaurant. Where we were offered several different types of cheese, spectacular bread and wine. Next you’re taking to a fantastic restaurant named Le collier de la reine where you will experience seafood. The two seafood dishes we had were both unbelievable. Next stop was in the Jewish neighborhood and we sampled falafels. Julie explain the significance of the square and what happened there and how it’s remembered. Our final destination I was at a restaurant called Le tresor. Our entrée was beef Bourguignon and the dessert was Crème brûlée. Both of these were exceptional and you will not be disappointed. You will not leave the tour hungry. We can’t say enough about this experience and our fantastic Guide, Julie. Thank you for making this such a memorable evening.
