We booked this tour for our first full day in Paris. Since we were staying in St Germain des Pres this turned out to be a perfect orientation to our neighborhood for the week. Lisa provides a little history, a good deal of local knowledge, and, of course, a tasting tour of some of the best bakeries, patisseries, and food... More

Truly special! My husband and I booked the St Germain tour. It was special from start to finish. Good to meet at 10:00am before streets start to bustle. Bakery, specialty food shops, chocolatier and the highlight a visit to an indoor market where a cheese monger prepares a tasting menu for you! It was a work of art! Wow. Truly... More

This is a wonderful way to experience Paris- you may wander past a bakery, chocolate shop, olive oils and spreads etc a hundred times without paying too much attention but until someone chooses a unique place and explains in detail whats on offer- and gets you to try ;-), it becomes so much more enjoyable. Further you get to know... More

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

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.
