This was such a fun way to spend a few hours! Food, history, architecture and a fabulous guide - Nico was entertaining, knowledgeable and passionate about his job. We were in Paris for 5 days and this was one of my favorite experiences. Don’t hesitate - do it!

My group booked a private tour of the French Quarter. It was the way to go making it easy to fit in our schedule. Lisa was our tour guide and she was fantastic. She was friendly and knowledgable. It was great getting in popular restaurants ahead of the wait lines. We were very satisfied with our tour and would highly recommend it. Thank you Lisa!!

Kathy did an amazing job with my corporate culinary food tour. It was fun, informative and delicious! Josh was great to work with in the planning stages. I highly recommend Sidewalk Food Tours.

I'm surprised to see so many positive reviews. I guess if you have never done a food tour in another city it may be more appealing as it is a new concept. However, we have done food tours throughout Europe and this was by far the most disappointing. Our guide was very nice and was easily understood. The stops and experience were the issue. We stopped at a bakery and had a croissant that we ate outside. We then walked through the Latin Quarter and stopped at several shops where the guide went in and purchased our food. We didn't get any history as to why restaurant or shop was chosen. We felt no connection to the places selected as the tasting was done elsewhere. Once all the food was purchased we stood outside a wine store and ate the purchased food on napkins. We had cheese, pate, and a meat. Oysters were mentioned but for some reason we didn't get any. We then went to a small coffee shop and had a very small tart. For 75 euro's it seemed like a big ripoff. Prior experiences in other cities have taken us in the book door of restaurants and introduced as to the proprietors providing an immediate connection to the food and the people preparing it - typically sitting down at a table where they were already expecting us. This experience was nothing like what we have had before.

Sadly, I was disappointed with this food tour. We went to a bakery with all these amazing pastries and he just got us croissants. We only sat down and ate inside for 1 of the 6 stops. Otherwise we were standing outside in the cold eating using a napkin as a plate. I specified I am vegetarian when I booked the tour and the guide wasn’t aware when I got there so I couldn’t eat at 2 of the 6 stops. I also paid for an English speaking tour but our guide spoke French the majority of the time because 2 out of the 4 people on the tour spoke French. It could’ve been a way better experience. I could’ve gone without doing this tour.

To avoid: poor history knowledge of Paris, poor food knowledge, poor English, nothing amazing with the food. In a nutshell, it's a tour at 20USD, not 70USD. For more or less the same price you have other quality tour of Paris for which I would give 5 stars. This tour is pure robbery and waste of time.

The Food Tours of Paris was everything that my husband and I had hoped it would be. Our guide, Mathieu, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Parisian food, history, and architecture. We enjoyed visiting the small, local shops while Mathieu bought food for us to sample all while we learned more about the history of this amazing area. The tour lasted about 3 1/2 hours which was perfect. I'm looking forward to another trip to Paris and an opportunity to participate in Food Tours of Paris.

Matthieu was my guide and it so happened I was the only one on the tour, so I had a delightful time with Matthieu tasting food, learning about the culture of France and some of the architectural highlights - all together a wonderful tour tasting cheeses, oysters, croissants, pastry and crepes. Well worth the money. I highly recommend it. Worth the money.

Because of the general strike in Paris, we were late arriving for our reservation. Francois was very flexible and accommodating. He was a fun guide and very knowledgeable about food, wine, and Paris in general. We enjoyed our time with him. We did the Latin Quarter tour. The only suggestion I would make is a different stop for the main course. The service was very slow, and not everyone likes duck. The crepes at Breizh Cafe were one of the best things we ate in Paris. We were all stuffed at that point, but we ate them all. If you're looking for a fun night in Paris, I would definitely recommend this tour and Francois as a guide.

We went to Paris during a transportation strike (which I do NOT recommend) and had a hard time getting to our meeting spot. Francios, our guide, waited patiently for us and we were still able to go on the tour when we thought for sure we would miss it because of how late we were. It was only our party of 3 and our guide, so it was nice and intimate. Francois was knowledgeable and interesting. You could tell he really loved food and loved spending time with people. We enjoyed our food and wine very much. Even though we went over our time due to being late, he still waited until we were in a cab before leaving. I’ve read some of the lower rated reviews, and there descriptions were pretty accurate (except claims that the guides were not knowledgeable. That wasn’t our experience). It’s a sidewalk tour, so you eat outside for some of it. We didn’t talk with any proprietors, but we don’t speak French, so I wasn’t expecting to. Some reviewers seemed to want 70€ worth of food for 70€. This is my first food tour, but obviously you aren’t going to get the same value in food. That’s not what you are paying for. As noted, this was my first tour, so I can’t speak to how it compares to others. There are definitely more expensive ones you can choose. But we felt like it was fairly priced and enjoyed our food, wine, and guide.
