We had PJ as our tour guide. He showed us how to shop like a local as well as giving us some interesting information about the foods we were eating. We got to try several delicious cheeses and meats, taste some good wine and enjoyed several desserts! Montmartre is a great area for the tour and PJ showed us a few of the sites and had stories to go with them!
What can I say about PJ that you guys dont know he was amazing so funny he was Montmarte he even saved us from pickpockets
I would not consider this a "food tour." This was more or a food "tasting." A "tour" implies we would have walked around trying different food at different places, but that's not what this was. This was walkint around, buying food and then going back to someone's basement to sample all of the food. Very weird setup.
Our guide Clément was fantastic, his passion for fresh local produce was evident from the fist stop. He was a wealth of information, entertainment and a great host. We enjoyed every bite and would highly recommend this tour!
This tour was very casual and fun. Tour guide (can't remember her name but was a young lady) was very gracious and fun. The food (except one "mystery dish" she wanted us to try) was awesome! Really got a flavor for the food of the area and the beautiful Montmartre area, which was very charming. The only issue on the tour was when we sat down at their secret basement dining area it was extremely hot and uncomfortable. Suggest the tour company invest in some better climate control in that space. Other than that we had a wonderful time on this tour.
PJ was very informative and made us laugh the whole time. Tour ran almost 5 hours. Great food and wine provided. Best food tour ever done. Give it a go as you will not regret it.
Our guide, Daphne, was amazing. She showed us a great inside view of historic Montmartre. After taking part in some sampling and gathering our food for the tasting, we got to experience her awesome storytelling abilities while we enjoyed our French cuisine. Highly recommend this tour!
I purposely choose the six pm tour as it was dinner time. We walked around Montmartre and stopped at many food establishments, we got to taste cheese, meats,crepes , macaroons. All very good but no Secrets! Could have done this on our own and for 200 euros bought samples plus! At end of tour went into basement and was served the samplings from the places we visited. We did have wine. Felt unsafe in basement as only egress was up a spiral staircase. Not suitable if unstable on feet.
We had a full day in Paris with no plans. We found this tour and it looked like the perfect afternoon. It was exactly that...perfect!! It was the right combination of walking, tasting, and learning about the area and it’s food! Marie, our guide, was delightful!! So knowledgeable, funny, and a joy to be with. We especially loved that we went to places where the locals went - not the touristy parts of Montmartre! HIGHLY recommend this tour! Thank you for such a wonderful afternoon, Marie!
We were taken to a chocolate shop, bakery for pastries and bread, a cheese store while walking through the charming neighborhood of Montmarte. Alice, our tour guide was delightful, informative and entertaining. She is a great ambassador for France! After our shared meal in the wine cellar, she gave us a list of restaurant recommendations and emailed us pics and information on all we ate!
Our tour guide was delightful. The food stops were memorable and delicious. Her explanations were thorough and interesting. We ended with a gathering with wine and samples from our walk that day. Terrific experience!
We throughly enjoyed this tour of the Montmartre area as our apartment was in the Pigalle area. Samuel, our guide, as extremely delightful, very knowledgable of the cheese, pastries, bakery, wines and meat products and did an excellent job of shepherding our group through streets of Montmartre. Our meal was enjoyable and just a perfect way to start or stay in Paris.
PJ was great and so was the food and the experience! We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit the region and learn about how to identify and purchase quality food at a French market, what wine, cheese and meat pairings work best and then indulging in the most delicious deserts. PJ knows his stuff and is great at including the history of the area and the food and some of the secrets as to why French food is always made with such quality and attention to detail. Go check it out! My teenage boys and I loved it!
We had a wonderful experience on this tour. Our guide, Emma, was kind and very informative. We talked around the streets of Montmartre and learned about the food and culture of the area.The food was very tasty and definitely left us full at the end of the day!
Our tour guide Ingrid is phenomenal! She took the time to explain everything and answer all our questions. You really get a great feel for Parisian life from a local. Lots of walking, but you wont be disappointed in the experience... or the food.
PJ was great. Extremely knowledgeable. My only criticism is that the tour ran longer than scheduled and we were stuck in a small room for over two hours. It was warm and this portion of the tour should have been shorter. But if you are interested in food keep your fingers crossed that you get PJ.
Our guide Capuchine was great. Food was great all around. Had a great time. Just a great way to see this very eclectic neighborhood
Terrific tour with Christophe. Montmarte was a great place for a walking tour and our guide was very knowledgeable. The second half of the tour was sit down and included a cheese, cured meat and wine tasting, complete with crepes and éclairs. The tour/tasting lasted 4 not 3 hours which was great - but you should know that if you have other tours or dinner reservations the same day. It was so much food - we could not even think about dinner after the tour. Highly recommend - but come hungry!
So much food to taste! Amazing experience if you like to try different foods!
Eleanore was great. I would definitely do this tour!! Well worth the money.
Hugo was the absolute best guide for our Paris Montmartre food tour! He was passionate about the food, wine, and Parisian living. Hugo educated us on Parisian history and taught us what to look for in the shop windows for the best retailers. When we picked up all the ingredients for our tasting, he taught us how to break off a piece of a baguette without flattening the bread. He shared how the best pairing of wine and cheese should be from the same region. We learned so much and enjoyed his tour immensely. I look forward to another future food tour with Hugo!
We did this tour on our first night in Paris. On our walking tour our guide pointed out a lot of really good places to eat that we then went back to during our stay all the places were just as good as she promised they would be. We learned A LOT of French history and got to try many things. I would recommend this tour if you love food, especially trying different things.
We had one night in Paris on our way home from Italy. This tour was such a treat. We met a small group of people and our guide, who was so nice and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour on your first day in Paris, as the information we learned can help you when shopping for food in the city. We walked to a cheese shop, a butcher, a baker for baguette which was named best baguette in Paris in 2016, buying items at each place while we also had tastings. We also stopped in the most amazing small macaron shop, where we got to try two macarons and two pieces of chocolate - both heavenly. Once we made a few stops, when went to a little place with our items and sat around a table where we learned how to share baguette, got to know our fellow travelers and tasted our bounty. They started us off with sparkling wine, and moved on to red wine with the other items of cheese, cured meats, pates and dessert. Our guide gave us the opportunity to try some items we might not normally try - for some, its checking a box, but you wont know until you try. Aside from those items, we enjoyed great cheeses, meats, wine and bread. It was a lot of fun and became our dinner that evening. What a blast. Cannot recommend enough. We did the 6PM tour.
