    The tour with Emilie was fantastic! She adapted well to the change of my husband not attending the tour snd personalized it very well to my interests. Her insights and information about the history of Le Marais gave me great background for walking around on my own later. The food stops were amazing! I loved learning about the history of the Poilane bread, the buckwheat crepe with ham and cheese was my first savory crepe and so good!

This tour was amazing. We spent the tour in the 6th Arr. We started with some sweet treats then moved to savoury. I ate so much. Full on meals and wine. I don't want to give away the spots we went to, but if you are looking for a sweet and savoury tour, then I definitely recommend this one. Francois was my tour guide.
