We got Mitch, one of the best tour guides we ever had. We loved all the food that we tasted, although I’m not a wine drinker, I still enjoyed the wine, meats, and cheeses that we had in the wonderful cellar that he took us to. I loved the vibe of Marais, hip and lively, with beautiful shops and charming old buildings. This tour is definitely highly recommended! Mitch is the best!

Excellent tour in Paris. I have visited before but always keen to explore lesser-known areas of different cities which I know urban Adventures is renowned for providing. The guide on our tour was Mich, and he was fantastic. Very knowledgeable, made the tour very interactive and answered everybody's questions thoroughly. His passion for Paris really showed throughout the whole tour. The food samples were amazing. We had pastries and sweet treats, some very tasty French cheese and also got to enjoy some wine tasting. I'd highly recommend this tour, especially if you want to explore different areas of Paris that you may not have explored before.

Great mix of history, wine and snacks

The tour was a lot of fun and was very interesting. Especially the stay in the wine bar gave the opportunity to talk in peace. The offers were very tasty and the whole group very pleasant. The three hours went by in flight. The next city visit will be booked again with a gourmet tour.
