Don’t book this tour ! RIP OFF
LAURA_J, May 2023
I booked this tour and was charged over 250..00 US . This was high way robbery and was advised by the guide that she was only allowed to spend 40.00 Euro . You can barley pay for two drinks and maybe a small piece of cheese . The guide was a sweet girl but embarrassed by the first point of meeting. I felt bad for her and suggested we just go and have a simple dinner which I ended up paying because the whole experience was ridiculous. The tour guide was a wonderful person but she knew the tour wasn’t worth a dime. She wasn’t informed about the amount of money until after the booking !!. THIS TOUR SHOULD BE CLOSED AND NOT OFFERED. It’s was a steal
food tour

It was raining very hard but Jamie tried really hard to give us a great tour and make it a fun 2 hours.
Don’t do!!

I am always hesitant to leave a bad review because it impacts someone’s livelihood, but this tour was terrible. The guide took us to places to eat and asked us what we wanted ( we don’t know - we don’t live here!) and barely explained anything about the food or history. Our tour the day before about Montmort and Marais was wonderful. We could have walked around with a guide book and done a much better job.
SO worth it!!

First thing you need to know is how great and worth the money the tour was. Prior to our trip, we were sent a survey to fill out of what we were interested in experiencing on our tour. (Local cuisine, historic buildings, photo spots ect.) They also ask where you would like your guide to meet you. We chose local cuisine and to meet in the lobby of our hotel. Our guide was Bibiana, she arrived early and even though we were tired from our travels, her enthusiasm gave us life. She took us to an incredible local market and In the end, it felt like we had traveled Paris with a friend. If that wasn’t enough, we mentioned the next day was my birthday and where we had reservations. Bibiana Called the restaurant in advance and told them it was my birthday. At the end of our meal the waiters all came and sang Happy Birthday. I can’t say enough about this tour. Your booking also gives you (I think) 80 euros towards food ect. So it is more than worth the expense! Highly recommend for your first day in Paris!!
Great experience!

It was a great food tour.... we visited the market and saw a lot of local foods. Francois Laverne our guide was kind and understanding. He even pick us up from our hotel and made sure we got home safely.He taught us a lot about Paris and their culture and direction which was so helpful during the next few days in Paris
Great tour!!!

Myriam was an excellent tour guide, took us to some great restaurants and we had great conversation!
Best way to see the city like a local!

Our guide Myriam was amazing! We were sad to say goodbye to her. She was very easy to spend time with and just lovely. She felt like one of the group of friends instantly! She customized the tour to our interests and was very flexible and personable. If we ever return to Paris we hope she is still a guide and we will reserve her services the whole visit!
Amazing experience!!!

We had a great time! The walk, the foods, and the cultural immersion all amazing. Zoltan is one of the best tour guides we've had so far: very knowledgable and super nice. Highly recommend him and will definitely request him for our next group tour.

Ines was a wonderful host. She took the requirements we gave her and created a wonderful walking tour. We visited many stores and shopped for picnic foods. We then had a picnic in a park. She even brought the blanket. We had a great time tasting all we had bought!
Für das Geld kann man auf...
Oliver_K, May 2023
Für das Geld kann man auf eigene Faust mehr kaufen und vor allen Dingen das kaufen, was einem schmeckt. Absolut nicht empfehlenswert.
