Julie was a fantastic and charming guide, and showed us so many adorable little spots that for sure would've been difficult to discover on one's own. The group size was good, all the stops were very unique, and everything we tried was so interesting and delicious. I loved the wine and cheese stop at the beginning; Julie's explanations gave me such a deep appreciation for French food culture, and background I was never aware of before. A big highlight was the chocolate shop of a world-famous chocolatier; the guy was a total mad genius - such a unique character, but also so passionate about chocolate and its origins that you couldn't help but be in complete awe of his presence and craft. Not to mention how incredible the chocolates were - I even went back over the weekend with my partner because I thought it was so special, and we bought a box of chocolates to bring back to Berlin with us. A truly memorable and exceptional afternoon/evening. Thanks Julie!
We were so lucky to have Antony as our guide and he was lucky to have all women! His knowledge of food, wine, history, and France is extensive and he imparts it with a contagious excitement and pride. I would recommend this tour to anyone for an overview of how, and what, the French eat. Lots of delicious samples and we had fun testing our palates trying to guess ingredients. Merci beaucoup!
One of our group, in a wheelchair was seriously hindered by the heavy rain. Our loss. Tour leaders were FANTASTIC!!
Visited great places but we were rushed in and out of most of them. Overall we enjoyed the tour.
Excellent guide, very knowledgeable Le Marais, and so friendly. We love this tour
