Excellent walking foodie tour - Aligre Market and surrounding

This was an excellent tour that we absolutely loved. Nick our friendly guide is a private chef. He was the perfect guide, being a local from that part of Paris with a ton of information to share about French Food Culture. We certainly learnt a lot and in the process got to taste some wonderful delicacies.
