We met Lisa for our tour about 10 am at the Saint Germain-des-Pre's Church and she immediately took us to the most charming little patisserie near the medical college. We never would have found it on our own. It was absolutely fabulous! From there we went to Ma Collection, a charming shop with all sorts of French treats: cookies, candies,... More

My husband and I took this tour last week. It was great fun. Lisa corresponded with us in a timely fashion: even sending pictures of the meeting place. This was helpful as we missed another tour the next day because we couldn't find the meeting place. I learned a lot from the Lisa and loved the neighborhood. It was an... More

My wife signed us up for the Sweet Tour when we were in Paris 2 weeks ago. Alas it was only the two of us with Lisa, but it made for a fun morning walking around the 6eme. Lisa was a great guide, and it was fun to hear another expat’s experiences living in the city. With both of us... More

My buddy and I were on an extended business trip to Paris and our Flavors of Paris afternoon with Lisa was our only break. And what a special time it was. I can only re-emphasize many of the other reviews. Lisa was kind and informative and we never felt hurried as she guided us from one amazing food tasting to... More

Flavors of Paris features a sampling of food and wine shops in a beautiful and very boho neighbourhood. I started my weekend trip with this wonderful walking tour, lead by the friendly and knowledgeable Lisa. She showed us all the best places to taste and buy wine, cheese, croissants, macrons, chocolate, olive oil... This is a must-do-tour if you are... More

Lisa's tour is wonderful for getting to know a corner of Paris you could blissfully walk through and miss the niches and depth of the neighborhood (it's the area of Les Deux Maggots and Cafe de Flore). I became interested in the tour to know what Lisa had uncovered (I have lived in Paris for a number of years). Her... More

My fiancé and I went on the afternoon food tour of St Germain area with Lisa - it was a fantastic afternoon! Lisa shared her knowledge of the area and love of French food with us. The food was super and there was so much to taste. We especially like the first stop at the baguette bakery and last stop... More

We had the opportunity to take the dessert tour on the 28th of October organized by the Flavors of Paris and hosted by Lisa. Lisa is a wonderful host and we thoroughly enjoyed her company besides the amazing food we got to sample. The highlight of the tour was definitely the choux pastry we tried. Hands down the best I've... More

I had the opportunity on August 22 to take the Flavors of Paris tour organized by Lisa. The tour begins on the steps of the church of St Germain-des-Prés. Immediately and throughout the tour, Lisa will share her historical knowledge of the area, which makes your time strolling through the neighborhood both rewarding and exciting. The first tasting takes place... More

A very educational, cultural and flavorful tour! We enjoyed all aspects of our afternoon with Lisa. St. Germain neighborhood is a beautiful, friendly section of Paris. The tastings were super. We'd take the tour again in a heartbeat!

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
