We enjoyed our time with Lisa, our guide. She was very knowledgable, and took us to some great spots for tasting. I highly recommend doing this tour, and doing it early in your stay in paris, as not only will you sample great food, you will get some great recommendations on restaurants to dine in. With so many great restaurants... More

I have done two tours this trip (my 3rd) to Paris. One trip was a cycling tour with a guide who has lived here for more than 10 years, has travelled all over the world and speaks very fluent French and also this tour with Lisa. The former one was one third the cost of the latter tour. And here... More

This walk through the back streets of Paris with both history and good food is a gem! Firstly it was easy to book, Lisa was very accommodating and gave great directions to the meeting point on the day. I had the pleasure of doing a morning tour with Fabian whose knowledge and enthusiasm knew no bounds. We devoured delicious croissants,... More

Firstly, finding Lisa at the tour starting point was a breeze. She gave excellent directions and the meeting point was right next to the metro. Once the tour began, it was clear having a small breakfast was a good idea. Everywhere we stopped there was plenty of sampling. She was also really responsive to questions and helped translate with the... More

This tour was terrific from beginning to end. Lisa was a very friendly, knowledgable guide. We hit a bakery (ridiculously good croissants), chocolate shop (I don't even like chocolate all that much and the hot chocolate was just indescribably delicious, not to mention the macarons), olive oil shop (the tasting was great - I learned a lot about types of...

Highly recommended tour for first timers in France who are curious of what goes behind French food. We had a great time with our very interesting guide, Pat.

What a fabulous day I spent with Lisa (A fellow Canadian living the dream in Paris!). Firstly, she was so wonderfully understanding when I unfortunately got food poisoning from my visit the week before in Morocco. On the morning of my scheduled tour, she had no problem re-scheduling me and I was able to sadly spend the day in bed... More

Lisa is very knowledgeable and a fun guide. Highly recommend. Our... More

My husband and I don't care much for tours, but being that this was our first trip to Paris we wanted to get some inside information from a local. Lisa knows so much about Saint Germain and she answered all of our questions throughout the tour. She also gave us a lengthy list of restaurant recommendations!! We sampled the best... More

Lisa, owner and tour guide, does an excellent job of co-ordinating an exceptional experience in the St. Germain neighborhood and I highly recommend her tour particularly if flavor as well as "local color" coupled with walking are of interest to you. She is well informed and well connected in the area so that the tour brought out an awareness of... More
