Paris Ultimate Food Tour - Paris 2024


Paris Ultimate Food Tour

Description: This food tour will take you off the beaten path and into the charming streets of one of Paris’ most storied neighborhoods, where you’ll discover firsthand how historical French food is. There is a legend behind every cheese, and a story behind every recipe and classic dish. Step behind hidden front doors and meet the people that make these family-run spots an integral part of Paris’ story.

We’ll start our Marais food tour as French as can be with buttery croissants from one of the city’s best-loved bakers. We’ll also try their homemade bread, which is different from other breads you’ll find around Paris!

From there, it’s time for two quintessential French sweet treats: macarons and chocolate. We’ll try both at a store where the owner has held a prestigious, lifelong quality award since 1986!

Next up, we’ll introduce you to an old friend of ours at a historic market. He’s become a bit of a local celebrity for his crepes, and we’ll try a special savory variation with southern French roots made from chickpea flour.

After that, our Marais food tour will take us into the heart of the historic Jewish quarter to try some unexpectedly Parisian pastries in a traditional, family-run establishment.

By now you’re ready for a crash course in a cornerstone of the French diet. Try a selection of some of the best cheese and charcuterie in Paris at a century-old shop packed full of regional delicacies from every corner of France. While we’re here, you’ll also learn how the French shop, eat and go about their daily life.

Time for something warm! At the next stop, we’ll enjoy homemade French onion soup in a traditional bistro, where the owner is known for sourcing all his own produce and making everything in house.

Next up, we’ll try some Parisian pastries with a twist. At this beautiful bakery, a French-Syrian pastry chef marries the flavors of the Middle East and the quality products of France in little “nests” of joy.

To wrap up, we’ll pop into one of our favorite little wine shops in the neighborhood for not one, but two glasses of French natural wine. The owner only works with winemakers he considers friends, and he’ll be happy to share his deep knowledge of French wine culture with you as you sip.

Eiffel Tower – Guided Tour

Paris 2024 - Versailles Tours


The Seat of Royalty:  Experience Versailles – Bike and Grounds Tour + Picnic Lunch + Palace Tour

Description: Having inspired countless royal residences around the world, the château of Versailles is the original symbol of royal power and wealth. Built as the palace for the French monarchy in the 1600’s, we can still visit the King’s home and personal backyard that’s larger than life. We’ll have a chance to see the palace, the grounds, and the formal gardens all in a day! We will meet in Paris, and we’ll take the suburban rail together (about 30 minutes) and then pick up our bikes just across from the train station. Our first stop will be the famous city market where we’ll shop for our picnic supplies (cost not included) to enjoy a lunch fit for a King (or Queen!) once on the grounds. Then, we’ll cruise through the Château’s enormous park along a network of fantastic trails and tree-lined paths, pausing along the way to share the rich history of the palace and French monarchy. Next, it’s on to our picnic at the end of the Grand Canal where we’ll settle down for a royal feast.  After lunch, we’ll continue through the grounds to visit Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet and the area known as the Trianons, which were pleasure palaces for the royal family. The Grand & Petit Trianon were home to visiting heads of state during their stay in Versailles, mistresses, extended royal family members, and day apartments for the Queen. After visiting these lesser-known but magnificent satellite palaces and Marie Antoinette’s controversial peasant village, we’ll make our way back to the front of the palace, drop off our bikes, and enjoy our timed entry into the château.   Once inside the palace, you will be able to see the room where Marie Antoinette’s guards were killed as they protected her from the mob at the beginning of the Revolution. You can walk through the breathtaking Hall of Mirrors where King Louis greeted guests, and centuries later the Treaty of Versailles was signed to end World War I.
