This food tour was incredible. It was definitely a splurge but it was so amazing and something we would have never tried otherwise. We tried so many French delicacies and delicious bites. I only wish I could eat like this every night!
This was a great tour. It felt very exclusive and we had some truly amazing food. Our meals up until this point had been hit or miss and this was definitely a hit! I wish The Tour Guy could have given us a food tour every night.
