My girlfriend and I cannot recommend this enough. You will get fantastic food on this tour. The establishments and the people Lisa will take you to do not treat their roles as simple jobs - they treat food as a mastery of art. From cheeses and wines, to chocolates and meats (and a lot more in-between), everyone you meet will... More

Tour was ok, but we expected to have 'sampled' more. 'Sample' being the operative word here, very little food. For $120 we would have liked more than a teeny tiny bit of pate' on a little crouton. There were other sweets at the beginning of the tour, it would have made more sense to do the 'savory part of the... More

A fantastic tour, which we loved! Our intimate group of 5 people plus Lisa tasted our way through the best of st germain, and lisa's hand selected vendors, markets and shops. My we felt sorry for the hordes of 40 people marching behind a single raise umbrella.... They saw a different Paris! Just fantasti, worth every penny, dont bother with... More

We're newcomers to the food tour activity. We've only done one in Rome the week before going with Lisa, the guide and the owner. It was lovely, educational, intimate and illuminating. Not only did we learn about one of Paris's finest neighborhoods, but the shops, the little streets -we would have never found those on our own, even though we... More

I want to preface my review with the fact that I am a friend of Lisa's, and my Mum, sister & I did a private tour in October 2013. With that out of the way, I really enjoyed the tour and was so glad to have done it. I love walking in Paris, and there is so much to see... More

My 3 daughters and I took the tour during our first day in Paris - we really enjoyed the foods, and the shops, and Lisa provided a great introduction to Paris. We learned many things that were helpful to our trip, and we returned to St. Germain neighborhood for dinner and more shopping on a later date. The pace was... More

As a group of 5 we took a private tour of the food outlets of the Saint-Germaine area of Paris and loved every minute of it. Lisa Rankin is a very knowledgable and cordial host who told us about some of the history of the area which include the very old church of Saint-Germaine and the famous restaurant Deux Magots....

Flavors of Paris is a great way to go to specialty shops, and meet nice people along the way. Lisa is a wonderful guide: very knowledgable and friendly. There were only 4 people on the tour so we all got a chance to taste everything and ask lots of questions. We started with coffee and croissant at Eric Kayser, then... More

My partner and our two teenage kids toured the St. Germain section of Paris with Lisa and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We tasted our way through Lisa's favorites which included a Bakery, Specialty Food shop, Tapenade/Olive Oil shop, Chocolate shop, Ice Cream/Sorbet cart and a Cafe where we enjoyed some lovely French wine, cheese & meat plates. Lisa is extremely... More

We booked the Flavors of Paris Walking Tour (dessert-themed) with Lisa after reading positive reviews on Trip Advisor, and it was a definite highlight of our trip to Paris. The weather was beautiful during our tour as we walked around the gorgeous St. Germain neighborhood. It ended up being just me, my husband, and Lisa on the tour, which was... More
