Full description
Discover one of the most amazing hot spots in Paris like a local, off the beaten tourist track. A popular boho weekend outing for all locals is the Canal Saint Martin. New restaurants, cafes and fashion boutiques are continually springing up in the neighborhood. It's also known as the home of culinary artisans who are setting an exciting new standard for French food. 

The picturesque district with a 19th-century waterway and iron footbridges is the perfect place to enjoy a canal-side picnic. Sink your teeth into the local culture as you taste your way through some of Paris’s most talked-about eateries. Enter a bakery that many believe to be hands-down the best in Paris, specializing in pure all-natural ingredients. Add some high quality charcuterie, organic vegetables and other specialties as you take a scenic stroll along the water's edge.

During the excursion, you will meet two devoted connoisseurs: oenologist and master cheese maker who have combined their passions to launch one of the most promising new gourmet hideaways on the canal.

Fantastic tour, fantastic guide. Philippe showed us three interesting and unique neighborhoods - the elegant Upper Marais, high-energy Place de la Republique, and finally the super trendy/less polished Canal Saint-Martin area. Along the way, we sampled seasonal fruits and veggies in the oldest covered market in Paris, freshly made gourmet chocolates and other candies in a high-end confectionaire/tearoom, sensational cheeses, bread, and wines in a specialty cheese shop, and finally an incredible pastry. Philippe shared lots of information with our small group of 4 about what we were tasting and seeing, as well as about French culture. A memorable Paris experience - highly recommended!
