Enjoy a delicious three-hour morning tour of French food tasting with traditional pastries, cheeses, hot dishes with well-paired wines, macaroons, and chocolates, in the beautiful area of Le Marais in Paris. Le Marais is a beautiful medieval arrondissement of Paris, a maze of narrow cobbled streets, old timbered buildings, aristocratic mansions, and many hidden gems with picturesque squares like Place des Vosges. Named for the marshland it was originally built on, Le Marais was once the headquarters of the infamous Knights Templar. Today it is one of Paris’s most upmarket, multi-ethnic, and trendy neighbourhoods, and this is reflected in its international cuisine. It is also home to the Jewish community, and popular with art lovers, bookworms, fashionistas, and foodies alike!
Your tour meets at 10.30 a.m in the very heart of Le Marais, and begins at a charming patisserie, famous for its elaborate decor, where you’ll sample the traditional French breakfast pastry: the croissant! Your expert English-speaking guide will tell you all about the area and the traditions of French cuisine, and then lead you around this vibrant neighbourhood.
Next up is a mouth-watering tasting of a variety of traditional French cheeses with freshly baked baguette, and a well-paired glass of wine.
It may sound strange that Paris is world famous for its falafel, which originates in the middle east, but it’s true. Falafel is the most popular street food in Paris. Head to the buzzing Rue des Rosiers, in the heart of the Jewish neighbourhood, to sample the best falafel in the world! The street with its vibrant atmosphere is home to many kosher food shops, stalls, and restaurants.
Now it’s time for a well-deserved sit down at a local restaurant for a delicious French onion soup and expertly paired wine. After lunch, you’ll be taken to two more specialist venues for two samplings of famously French sweet treats: a delicate macaroon, followed by an award-winning chocolatier, for a melt-in-the-mouth tasting experience!

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
