Wonderful Way to Discover Le Marais
Debra_S, Mar 2023
We had a wonderful time with Bart (I cannot spell his name in French)! He took us from the oldest market where we tried cheese and wine to crème puffs to fancy jams to falafel! We ended up in a quaint bistro with charcuterie and more wine. Bart was so knowledgeable about the area because he grew up in LeMarais. He had a wonderful sense of humor and we left full of wonderful food and wine and some little history of the area, too. Thank you, Bart! We throughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend this tour.
Highly recommend

Our guide, Bart, was awesome! He told us the history of the area while showing us around and stopping at multiple food places. We enjoyed cheese with wine and bread, cream puffs, jam, falafel then ended with charcuterie boards (meat and cheese with wine and bread) at a restaurant where we were able to sit and talk to each other to end the evening. Excellent experience. Highly recommend.
Great tour!

We had such a good time! Eleanor, our guide was brilliant, with bags of knowledge about the history of the district and the food we were eating. It was the first food tour I've done but would definitely do it again. It was awesome.

Dawn_B, Feb 2023
This tour was excellent!!! Our tour guide, Elinor, was wonderful, informative and very friendly. We not only had wonderful food ( cheeses, jams, profiteroles, charcuterie, chocolate and wine) we walked the beautiful Marais neighborhood and learned the history of the area. The Little Red Children’s Market was fantastic and we also appreciated the visit to the Jewish Children’s school and the history behind the area. I highly recommend this tour as it helped us to get a feel for the area while enjoying some wonderful food and drinks.

Nice area to tour
alinacar06, Feb 2023
Walking around town was fun. The tour guide was nice. We felt the food tasting was minimal, mainly sweets. We were expecting more variety of tastings
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Good evening Alina, thank you for booking a tour with us and for your kind review. However, we are sorry that the variety of food offered in it did not meet your expectations... despite the fact that Amandine, your guide, led you to 6 different stops to taste some biscuits, jam, chocolate, macaron, cooked ham, wine and that you was even offered some snails. It would be hard in 3 hours of time to exceed this level of diversity, as we are very attached to consecrate time to the presentation of each tasting as you probably noticed.
A bit disappointing
Cristina_V, Feb 2023
Our guide tour was nice but we feel like the experience wasn’t at all what we expected or it was advertised. I bought this experience as a present for my partner’s birthday as he is an wine, cheese and food enthusiast. The experience was advertised as we will get to try wine, cheeses, meats and other local products. We did try cheese but only a few pieces at the beginning in one market with one glass of one type of wine that wasn’t really explained. No cured meats in the whole tour. Other type of wine at the end of the tour with no other food and a bottle to share with the group. The rest was two other types of sweets and falafel. We appreciated the tour but we found it quite poor as you pay a high price for the tour and you expect to try a more extensive range of wines and meats, while you are shown the most typical places in the trendy area. Again, no meat was offered and it is advertised. Hugo was a nice guy but he didn’t show us or tell us anything special that you couldn’t do yourself. We ended the tour feeling a bit disappointed. Possibly because it is low season and the group was smaller but that shouldn’t mean offer less.
Response from Host, Feb 2023
Good evening Cristina, thank you for booking a tour with us. We are sorry that the content of the tour did not meet your expectations. We clarified what happened with our guide, who explained that after the first 5 stops, the group seemed to be full, so that he chose to offer to the group a glass of wine without cured meet at La Tartine. He should have asked you and should not have assumed that you was not wishing to eat more. This is the guide's mistake and we present you our full apologies. We want to clarify though that the level of quality and service does not change from one tour to another, between seasons or accordingly with the number of attendants. That situation never happens normally, it was a misunderstanding from our guide. However regarding the wines, you was offered 2 glasses of wine, which is what is advertised. We underline that the tour you attended is NOT a special wine tour. Given the fact that you did not received cured meat though, we would very be happy to offer you a discount on another tour if you are still in Paris or plan to come back. Please take attach with us in this regard.

We had a great guide, Anthony, who made this experience for us with his enthusiasm and conviviality. He provided lots of history and good food in the Marias district. Very glad we did the tour.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Hello Michael, thanks for your nice review !
Great tour and nice way to get to know Marais area.
Ken_S, Jan 2023
We took this tour our first day in Paris (we were also saying in Marais) to get help us get familiarized with the area. Our guide Nicholas was very good and very knowledgeable. We sampled a good array of different items and a couple wines. Sample sizes are relatively small but enough. Choux pastry shop was amazing!
