A fun, highly informative, adult activity with a local guide who was steeped in food and history knowledge. We tasted excellent local wines, cheeses, meats, breads, delicacies, and desserts, and we were introduced to the neighborhood bistro experience. The company is easy to reach and communicative, and its instructions are accurate and easy to follow. Not recommended for vegetarians or vegans.

Emily was a terrific tour leader- she told us about the history and the food and wine. The group was only 10 people. Stops were a mix of cheese, wine, charcuterie, other local specialties, bread and sweets. Learned a lot about France’s regard for cuisine!

Our group thoroughly enjoyed the food tour. The different delicacies were all real treats and the walking tour was a fun environment.

Zac was really great; super enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Not in a hurry to finish the tour, happy to answer questions afterwards.

Great mix of food, wine and architectural highlights. Highly recommended.
