Full description
Saint-Germain des Prés, located in the heart of the most romantic area of Paris, is an inevitable highlight of the Left-Bank. Renowned as the best chocolatier capital in the world, it also contains some gems of 20th century Parisian culture such as Le Café de Flore, La Brasserie Lipp and Les Deux Magots; the favorite places of the intellectuals, politicians and artists in the City of Light.  Hidden in the narrow streets of Saint-Germain and inside some of its 17th century arcades, you'll also discover incredibly charming little food shops that have been selected for you! Savor the smell of a fresh brioche made before your eyes, a fresh, crunchy ham and butter baguette, or even with the sight of an exquisite cheese assortment perfectly paired with wine. Your local foodie guide will be delighted to tell you everything about the Parisian way of life, and share amusing anecdotes and stories about Paris and its specificities.

    We visited several historical sites and tasted a little bit of each one and learned their history (chocolates, macarons, cheeses, wine, caramel, etc). With the exception of the cheeses and a stop to taste olive oils, all the others were sweet. We like it, but we miss tasting more drinks and savory dishes instead of going to different chocolate shops. The price is also quite high, they could include more savory foods for the price we paid.

    The only downside at all, if I had to be picky, was trying to find the meetup point. Once we connected with our guide (the staff were very helpful with this, just follow contact us link from the app), we had an amazing experience. We sampled so many wonderful foods, saw beautiful architecture, and learned the history of the neighborhood from a genuine local - including shops, government buildings, churches and more.

    There we some interesting stops and a lot of historical information in this tour. We were expecting a bit more food focus. When we sat for cheese and wine tasting, it was difficult to hear the information. The guide was very knowledgeable. We started with chocolate which seemed odd. Would have liked to end with that.
