To my mind, a "gourmet tour" of a French city should be more than dropping into a cookie shop (where one biscuit was provided), to an olive oil shop where at most 2cc of oil were offered, to a sweets shop where one macaroon and a small chocolate were made available, etc. There was a bit more "bulk" at a cheese shop where Roquefort and bread were provided. However, for a lot of people, "blue cheese" is an acquired taste, thus it was not agreeable to all. As a result, there was plenty of bread and cheese remaining after our visit, which our tour guide took home. The tours was also said to include "wines." Note the plural here. I assumed we would have a tasting of local or regional wines; however, we were treated to one wine (a cheap rose) at a wine shop. Being the wine enthusiast that I am, I was sorely disappointed (and a bit offended) at the offer here. For 50 Euro per person, one can do a lot better going to a nice restaurant. I was quite hungry after this tour. So much so, that my wife and I went out for dinner after. This made for a much more expensive night out than we anticipated. I will say that our guide is quite informative and gave us some interesting details about the city of Montpellier. But, the cost was not worth it.
