Great mix of history, wine and snacks

The tour was a lot of fun and was very interesting. Especially the stay in the wine bar gave the opportunity to talk in peace. The offers were very tasty and the whole group very pleasant. The three hours went by in flight. The next city visit will be booked again with a gourmet tour.

Enjoyable and informative walk

Really enjoyed this tour especially for the brilliant guide, Adele, who was well educated on Paris history and architecture. She was able to answer all questions beyond my expectations and gave insight that we would not have found in a tour book. The guide was gifted in making the experience and conversation suited to our interests. The food was good. We had three pastries at various locations (all excellent) and then cheese/charcuterie and wine at a fourth. If you are looking for a truly exceptional culinary experience, you should probably book a nice restaurant. This tour is really a balance between walking/learning and tasting some special foods.
