Guide had so much information that tour actually went overtime but no one was bothered. Learned much and saw shops in out of the way places.

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience behind the scenes at a small French bakery, learning how baguettes and croissants are made, getting a chance to try our hand, and sample a little, too...all with humor and fun.

Last Sunday we did the Paris Gourmet Walking Tour and it was just brilliant. Stephanie, our guide, met us at the arranged spot, right on time. She gave us a quick over view and off we went. Our first stop was to visit a Fromager, where we began to learn about the vast variety of cheeses available in France. We also had our first tasting for the day. Then we walked on to a local market. As we went along Stephanie told us about the history of the local area. We even saw Roman Arena, something which we would never have been able to see on our own. We tasted and then bought cheese at the local market and some fruit to cleanse our palate. We walked through the local streets and saw all the lovely shops, and continued to learn about the produce and how the local people live. We tasted and bought meat from the butcher and bread and a local apple dessert from the baker. We then went to the local park where we ate our goodies and continued to learn about food. We finished our tour with some wine tasting. It was a great tour and my wife and I heartily recommend it. We even got to take our goodies home and relived the experience over tea that night.

We had a lovely time with this and learned a lot. My wife and I had hoped to share the event with some other folks and meet some new people, but we ended up having it to ourselves, which turned out to be very enjoyable. We are total wine novices (even though we’re from Northern California), but our host, Löic, was an excellent teacher. He explained a lot to us about French wine regions, traditions, and history, and helped us understand more about how to evaluate wine. And of course we got to drink some excellent and unusual wines, accompanied by some delicious cheeses.

We did a three hour walking tour of Paris that focused on the city's covered passageways. We were a group of 6, the small size was really nice. The pros: guide was very knowledgeable and kind. She spent extra time with us to make sure we saw everything on the itinerary. The cons: our guide was soft spoken and it was often hard for the entire group to hear, especially when she turned her head to the side; the tour only covered three passageways - we would have preferred more of an experience in the passageways as opposed to walking and seeing other sites.

This tour with Owner/driver and tour guide (Adam Bowen) was fantastic.
You need to be reasonably fit and ready to move out of your comfort zone. You don't know whats around the next corner.
We had trailer trouble and Adam just got to and solved the problem. Keeping his passengers in the loop.He was unbelievable and always a smile on his face. His knowledge of the area, things to see (waterfalls, pools, anthills) history/animal and plants was remarkable. A good pair of walking shoes is a must.
I would recommend "OFF ROAD KIMBERLY ADVENTURE TOURS" (Adam Bowen) to any one up for an adventure, that likes sleeping under a star filled sky and has a good level of fitness.

Hi,
It seems that you did spent a wonderful time with Kimberley Offroads in Australia! But I am afraid that you have posted your review on the wrong adress. We are a French company based in Paris. Anyway, if you want to have a good experience during a trip in France, please do not hesitate to contact us!
