Our guide was Naiomi. Not only was she an excellent food guide, but she provided us with great historical and local information about the area we were in. We were the only couple signed up for our food tour... giving us a private experience while visiting shops. The only downside was there was too much food for just the two/three of us to have. We ate as we went from shop to shop, spreading out our meals. We had croissants from the bakery. We tried our first oysters from the fish shop which we would not have tried on our own... found out we liked them. We had three types of cheese from the cheese shop which we at with warm bread from the bakery. We tried two types of pate from the meat shop, one of which was our choice. We split a bottle of wine from the wine shop, which we drank outside at a table/wine barrel while we watched the street traffic go by. We then stopped for crepes (our choice as to flavor). This was also the bathroom stop. We then took a walk to the top of the Latin quarter, taking a quick detour through one of the churches and got to hear a trio of women performing music choral music. She then walked us by the Parthenon and the major Paris university on the way down the hill to the Siene river, across from Norte -Dame cathedral. After refilling our water bottles in a park, we stopped as small patisserie for our final dessert. Time in all was 2.5 to 3 hours. Well worth the time and cost. Highly recommended.

My husband and I went on this tour and really enjoyed taking in the food experience in Paris.
Our guide was excellent and she made it a lot of fun for us.
The places we went to were very good and would definitely recommend this tour.

We met our guide, Naomi in the Latin Quarter. She is a lovely woman with extensive knowledge of the food and history of Paris. We tasted some of the best foods of our whole trip.

We were the only ones on the tour, so we were treated to very large portions. We couldn't even finish the bread, cheeses, pastries, charcuterie, oysters and desserts. We weren't expecting a glass of wine, but we were happy to partake. I'm not sure about the portion size for large groups, but Naomi mentioned most of their groups are on the smaller size.

We have taken this company's food tours in other cities like NYC too and they always deliver. Thank you Naomi for one of the highlights of our stay in Paris.

I did this tour whilst in Paris and whilst I do many food tours in different countries I was disappointed by this tour in terms of value for money.
The tour was good and I enjoyed the walk and food but for the price paid one pastry, breads/cheese/meat and one glass of wine ate outdoors and finally one small cake was not what I expected. The trip notes mentioned other stops which we didn’t do. Overall overpriced for what you get

There are many food tours offered in Paris. We chose this particular one for a couple of reasons: (1) The Latin Quarter was the area we were most unfamiliar with, so we thought it would be a good way to see some of it, (2) We liked the description of the places listed on the itinerary. We were very satisfied with the tour, which was led by Gil. I don't believe we stopped at every shop on the website list, but there was a nice variety, including bread, seafood, cheese, crepes, meat, and dessert. We only had 3 guests on our tour, and I can see where the number needs to be kept small (they allow a maximum of 10) because the streets are very narrow and there is very limited space at each place. You do stand at most places to eat. As we walked, the guide pointed out several historical buildings.
