      Montmatre walking food sampling, super fun!
      We did a private Montmatre walking food tour with Luis. He was very informative and explained all the little items we tasted at various spots. It was great because we stopped into places and tried things we wouldn’t have on our own!

      Understanding French Cuisine 101
      Our cooking experience with Marthe was fantastic! We shopped and discussed the why on her selections. Very helpful. Went to three different shops in search of excellence. The entire meal preparation was dedicated to making us wiser about all three courses and their ingredients. The meal was fantastic and we made it! We both learned so much and would recommend others learn from Marthe: she enjoys teaching.

      Chef Fred is the man!
      An absolute favorite experience. We shopped with Fred, drank a little wine and cooked fish, veggies, souffle ect. Our chef was very generous with information and techniques.

      Montmartre gourmet food and walking tout
      Montmartre gourmet food and wine walking no tour with Adriana was amazing. It was the perfect blend of history in the area, history of the food, and the tastings were delicious! Adriana was delightful and charming. We are looking forward to another tour with her the next visit to Paris. What a wonderful memory and experience this was!

      Not a "class"
      I have no idea what was the point of calling this a "class" as there was absolutely no real teaching of how to make croissants. I had gone in trying to figure out how to fold and roll out the croissants and not much information was passed along- just that he used a pasta maker machine. Absolute waste of money and would NOT reccomend. 2 others in the "class" agreed they though we were going to get hands on. Scoring a baguette does not count. Neither does beating a ball of dough once.

      Fun tasty experience
      We had Luis Zarate as our guide and he was incredibly knowledgeable and kind throughout our tour. He even stopped to show us a beautiful church along the way (and so we could warm up from the cold). We tried some great desserts we would have never known about and at the end we went to La LAB for wine tasting. I don't like wine but even I enjoyed the experience, Edward (La LAB) and Luis were great!

      Small group cooking experience
      My family and I embarked on a culinary journey in Paris with a small group cooking experience. Our patient (.. was such a novice) and knowledgeable chef shares not just recipes but a rich tapestry of historical food insights. The exquisite dishes we created were nothing short of amazing. Set against the backdrop of a breathtaking Parisian view from the chef's apartment, this experience is a must-try – a delightful blend of flavors and culture. Additional, she will send the recipe to your email.

      Luis Zarate was an awesome wine teacher!
      Luis Zarate was our personal wine teacher for the evening. He taught us about the different colors, smells, and tastes of the wine. It wasn’t just taste the wine. We were able to figure out the year of the wine based on the color. We discussed taste and smell in detail. It really opened my eyes on how wines are analyzed. Luis taught us so much and he was such good company. I was trying to work on my French so he helped me with that also lol. We highly recommend this company and Luis.

      Yummy Delights!
      Barbara was a wonderful guide. She clearly had many contacts in the area and took us to all her favorite places to sample chocolate and pastries. She had a thorough knowledge of the history of the Saint-Germain area.

    The tour guide, Erelle, was great. Fun and knowledgeable, and she got the four of us interacting with one another. But the tour was very disappointing. We just went round a lot of chocolate and bread shops with a bit of background to each. Interesting but could have been found on the net. Each shop gave us a small sample to taste, which was gracious of them. For £86 this was a rip off. I would have been happy to pay £35. I'm sorry to say this is not the first time this has happened with TripAdvisor. I won't be going on any more of their tours.

    Hello jadefish, Thank you for taking the time to leave your thoughts on the tour, and our apologies for only being able to get back to you now. We're sorry to hear that you feel the tour was overpriced for what it was. I can inform you that many of the tastings that you had were actually only available to you, and that we pay some of the shops/restaurants/boutiques in advance so that the guide does not have to pay on-site. Due to all of the costs involved - tastings, the guide, expenses and taxes - this is why the tour is 95 euros; and we will take your comments into consideration to ensure that future clients feel that the experience is worth this price, both in terms of the guide and the tastings.

    I was expecting a predetermined set up however it was just going around to random chocolate stores asking for samples. Nice tour guide but this is disorganized and I think most people would have a similar expectation.

    If you love chocolate, this is a nice easy tour. It actually could be a little longer with a few more stops IMO.
