My wife and I have done several Food Tours in the past and were really looking forward to this experience in Paris. Lisa was a great host and provided some knowledgeable bits of information about certain restaurants and frequented them. The tour felt more like going around to shops with free samples. We didn't feel like we saw enough stores... More

Thanks so much for your review of our Original Tour . We are a little concerned that you felt that it was a matter of just taking free samples at the shops. We actually contact the shops we visit ahead of time so they may prepare for our visits. For example, the owner at the little, French fine food boutique... More

We loved the walking food tour with Lisa. Even though the weather wasn't the best on the day of our tour, we still had a good time walk tasting our way through parts of St Germain. From pâté to bread, chocolates to cheese, we loved the sessions at each shop. Apart from knowing where some of the best shops are,... More

TL:DR version - Very educational and great value. You won't leave hungry as there's lots to try, taste and eat. Friendly and knowledgeable guides make it fun and interesting. You won't regret it so just book the tour now! Longer version - The gods must have smiled on us 3 times on this tour. First of all, it had been... More

Didn't give up thought. Our guide was not the usual one and he tried hard, but didn't know the answers to all the questions that my school teacher friend asked. First part talking about the church could be skipped - we were there for gourmet stuff. Not too much gourmet products on offer - but good for a first time... More

I have a complete write up and photos of this wonderful St. Germain neighborhood food tour led by lovely Lisa Rankin. My blog is called "thyme" at www.rileymadel.blogspot.com I would happily recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the cozy but sophisticated 6th Arrondissement. Lisa is a Canadian expat who is warm and personable. We ate hot croissants... More

We had such a wonderful experience on this tour. Sampling everything at the Gourmet Shops especially the chocolate. We got to experience the beautiful neighborhood of Saint Germain-des-Pres' and taste the specialties of France. Be prepared to walk for most of the tour and don't book dinner reservations if you take the afternoon tour. We did and we had to... More

I highly recommend this tour over any others in Paris. The small group made it very easy to interact with the others in our group. Our guide, Lisa, made it seem as if she was a friend showing friends the best things Paris had to offer in wine, cheeses, chocolates and pastries. We learned a lot of things, sampled the... More

A wonderful walking/tasting tour of the best shops in the 6th. Lisa was very knowledgeable about the foods, shops, shop owners and we were not disappointed in any of the stops. It was a perfect sampling of the wonderful foods of France. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Paris.
