Along the way, we will examine how all of these products fit into the French diet, as well as other culinary traditions and philosophies. Our culinary journey may come to a close with a glass of Armagnac in a wine shop passed from generation to generation since 1905. As we finish, we will have an excellent foundation in the cornerstones of French gastronomy and be better prepared to further discover French food during our stay and beyond.
Wine enthusiasts would also enjoy our Paris Wine Tasting Tour, which gives an in-depth overview of French wines. We also organize a Paris by Night Tour: Left Bank, which provides a basic introduction to the Left Bank and Paris as a whole.
Yes. If you have any specific allergies/intolerances please indicate these in the Notes section when you're booking and your guide will do his or her best to accommodate. Vegetarian, gluten-free, and nut-free diets can certainly be accommodated, although the shops we visit do use wheat flour and nuts in the kitchen for other items.
Some of the shops we visit are small and many will have a step up to access them. The general route may include small streets with narrow sidewalks. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding accessibility. We are also happy to design a private, adapted tour for visitors with mobility concerns.
Will this tour include a sit-down lunch in a bistro?
The duration of the tour will not allow enough time for a sit-down lunch in a bistro, however, we will do tastings along the way and we might also stop in a local bakery for a sit-down tasting or end our tour with a picnic.
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your guide will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to have an umbrella on hand.
There are 7 in my group but your website won't allow me to include more than 6 participants. Can't you make an exception?
