The Gourmet Gastronomy of Paris: 2.5-Hour Food Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2.5 hours
The location was great, as well as the selection of wines. The sommlier was engaging with a phenomenal personality & knowledge base. I would say, the information is more for beginners and overview is extremely breif about regions and varietals (but to be honest France is large and there are thousands of vinyards, impossible to cover in depth in an hour). Having an extensive knowledge base from working in the wine industry for the US, I always feel any opportunity is one to learn from, however, besides a few wine facts from the French perspective, I cannot say it was significantly informative for wine geeks. In other words, if you want to have a great time and try some delicious French wines, go! If you already know quite a bit, just sit back and enjoy the tasting :) it's a tasting foremost, and not a class. I enjoyed it as a last hurrah in Paris.
We had an amazing experience for many reasons. Wine was delicious, the place was cozy and welcoming, the sommelier was very informative and made it interesting and fun! He also had the best advice and local information about Paris!It was also nice to take a break from sightseeing just enjoy wine!!! Oh, and cheese and meat were so tasty! Overall worth doing believe me!
Our sommelier was so very knowledgeable and made us all feel very comfortable. We learned so much about the regions of France and their wines, how to correctly read a wine label and were able to taste a variety of wines and champagne. Highly recommend this experience to anyone visiting Paris!
It was terrific. Felicity was such a great wine enthusiast. We learned a lot about French wine and wine regions in France, the wine and the cheese pairings were excellent. Highly recommend this for an afternoon activity.
The wine tasting was a great experience for me and my partner. The wine was great and cheese/bread. The woman who did the wine tasting was very experienced and gave us lot of tips and we learned a lot.
