Meet your guide in the Marais district—once the locale of Parisian aristocracy and now one of the city’s most fashionable and artsy neighborhoods. Set off by foot to discover why Marais is also known as a destination for discerning foodies, starting off with a typical Parisian breakfast of coffee and a croissant.

Continue on through the atmospheric medieval streets to a boulangerie (bakery) for a sampling of traditional French bread and a lesson in the proper way to eat a baguette. Make your way to Paris’s oldest covered market to browse the colorful vendor stalls and sample fragrant French cheeses along with wine.

Stop in at a neighborhood brasserie (casual restaurant) to soak up the ambiance and enjoy a savory serving of croque monsieur sandwich or French pie. Finally, finish the tour on a sweet note with nibbles of some of Paris’s best chocolates and French macarons from a confectionary, plus a special secret dish.

With a fully satisfied stomach, say au revoir to your guide near the Seine River.

Disappointing tour that's not worth the time or money

Our tour guide didn't speak English well and barely gave us any information during the tour. She basically just walked us from one place to the next. The food on the tour was also very mediocre. In a city like Paris where there's so much great food all over the city, it was very disappointing that we didn't get better food. The tour overall was really a waste of time and money.

Christophe was amazing. He's lived in le Marais for 50 years and knows all of the ins and outs. He was also a wealth of knowledge about Paris. Le Marais is a very cool neighborhood that doesn't get enough credit! I'd visit again! We had several stops on the tour to enjoy croissants, coffee, warm baguettes, chocolate, wine, cheese, macaroons...it was all delicious. And all throughout the tour Christophe would stop to explain history, culture, and food. I would highly recommend this tour.

This is a wonderful way to see a charming and historical district of Paris. Marianne was delightful with lots of energy, charm, and a good sense of humor. There are plenty samples of different foods, desserts, and wine. We have taken many food tours and this was one of the best, not only was the food tasting interesting but Mariannes personality added to making this a special tour.
