French Oysters and Champagne in Paris
The tour begins in the best way we could possibly think - with champagne! Enjoy a crisp glass accompanied by oysters giving you a real taste of France. Your guide will be sure to tell you all there is to know about this famous dish before you head off to the next stop!
Cheese and Wine Tasting
No French food tour would be complete without some fromage! Your guide will tell the story about its connection to the country’s cuisine and culture at the second stop on the tour - a wine and cheese bar where you’ll be able to sample some incredible cheeses paired with local wines.
Although it doesn’t sound as French as escargots or cheese, falafel is a well-loved dish in Paris. Lines wrap outside the various falafel restaurants in the city during lunch and dinner time - the Parisians can’t get enough of the mouth watering this fried chickpea dish!
The Art of Parisian Crêpes
The third stop is another famous French favorite: crêpes! Locals eat crêpes in a variety of ways - sweet, salty, for dinner, for lunch, or whenever they sound good. You’ll get to enjoy some savory crêpes paired with another local speciality, hard cider.
Hot and Savory Boeuf Bourguignon
Next, the tour will head to a local brasserie. There, you’ll be able to experience another French delicacy, boeuf bourguignon, alongside a delicious glass of red wine (included with the meal) and tasty mashed potatoes! Boeuf bourguignon is cooked slowly and simmered with a mixture of vegetables. Sit back, relax, and let your taste buds do the work.
Sweet Crème Brûlée
Finish the fabulous evening off with this amazing, local dessert! Crème Brûlée is a sweet, vanilla cream served with a layer of crunchy, caramelized sugar. The combination of flavors and textures will have you falling head over heels for this French speciality. Before you say your farewells to the guide, be sure to pick his/her brain about recommendations they have for your time in Paris - who better to ask than a local?

You do not have to pay for your children under six years old if they are not eating with the group.

If your child is an adventurous eater, choose the 'Child' option when checking out.
Q: Do the tasting stops on this tour ever change?
A: Stops and tastings on this tour are subject to change due to seasonal/holiday venue closures. As the places we frequent on this Paris Food Tour are local institutions and family-run businesses, they can close at any time with very little to no notice. In this situation, your guide will take you to another nearby eatery.

Our group of 8 was very happy to have signed up for this Food Tour where we received a delicious and interesting introduction to French cuisine. Our tour guy, Avi, took us on an informative journey through Le Marais which was once a aristocratic district with many beautiful buildings and passages of historic and architectural importance. During this 3 hour tour with Avi we experienced and thoroughly enjoyed an authentic taste of Paris. We all loved it! Thanks for the awesome tour, Avi!
Yum! This was an amazing way to taste all the French food we wanted to try. I was definitely stuffed by the end of the night but it was soooo good. I wish I could do it three more times. The creme brulee was amazing.
Great food, good times
The tour extensive and diverse in food. My tour guide was furet and he told us a lot about the history of the food we ate and the local areas we visited. I learned a lot about Paris past and present. It was a great time.
