Discover what truly is French food and get a taste of its very best!


French food has its rules and traditions. This makes it the best cuisine in the world wouldn't you say?

Yet, it takes a real expert to know where to go and how to try the very best of it. Join me to discover the iconic local shops have been going on for decades, and try their best specialties.

On this 3-hour private tour you will discover:
- where is the best cheese shop in Paris and why it was voted so;
- why Parisians are so attached to local markets and how to shop there
- how some Chefs have turned pastry making into a true art
- what makes each wine different and the best region to produce them
- and how coffee changed the face of Paris.

Be ready to taste exquisite produces, smell unique scents and become a true French Food connoisseur.

Itinerary

Your Food Tour of Paris includes various local markets, boutique shops and authentic neighborhoods.

After meeting you by your hotel (or directly on site) we reach our first stop which is one of the Parisians' favorite food market! Sample some fresh fruits and vegetables, taste this smoked ham or just smell these gorgeous strawberries. . .

We continue to a unique bakery to learn the secret of French desserts and how they have jumped into the 21st century. Eclairs, macarons or even choux are there for you!

Then, our nose leads us to this award-winning cheese shop where we all want to stay forever! Cow, goat or sheep? Find your own personal favorite one(s), there are over 1, 000 available!

Last but not least, there wouldn't a proper French Food Tour without some wine right?! Let me take you to my dearest boutique shop where we are expected. Red? White? Loire or Côte du Rhône? Find out how to pick your perfect match. . and feel free to bring some more back home after the tour!

I can't wait taking you there!

A Recent Review of this tour

Bertrand is fantastic! I recommend what we did, which was combining this tour with the "Paris Just for You!" tour that Bertrand has, if you have the time and can use the entire afternoon for an adventure. Bertrand is incredibly kind and easy-going, and wants nothing more than to make sure your time is spent memorably. He knows his way around the typical tourist attractions, but he also knows the best shops and streets that are more quaint and intimate. He knows how to custom fit a tour. He's awesome!
