Sylvana
Sylvana
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina
Something simple like a crêpe oeuf fromage, a croissant aux amandes or just any kind of cheese
My favourite spot is by the river, anywhere between Pont d'Alexandre and the Ile Saint Louis. Have an picnic and a glass of wine
Lulu
Lulu
I was born & raised in Paris but spent a lot of time abroad, including 6 years in Shanghai, China
I’m obsessed with everything food & beverage related and have a great love for hospitality and bonding with people from all over the world. My fav french food is a very simple, yet delicious tarragon roasted chicken with some roasted potatoes and green beans.
My fav thing to do in Paris would be walking around my neighborhood, le Marais, and discover newly opened restaurants

Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, I moved to Paris in 2018 to pursue a Master's Degree in International Relations. Giving food tours combines my lifelong love of cooking & eating with my training in cultural diplomacy.
My favorite French food is foie gras...controversial but so delicious!
My favorite thing to do in Paris is "flâner," to walk without a purpose and enjoy what one encounters, usually ending with a glass of wine on a terrasse.
Camila
Camila
My name is Camila and I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I've been living in Paris since 2018. Spending these years as a local, studying, tasting, absorbing and exploring the city, allow me now to share my knowledge and love for Paris to others. I’m also an actress and a filmmaker.
My favorite French food? All the pastries this country has to offer.
The thing I enjoy the most in Paris is going to a good local restaurant and walking around everywhere, discovering hidden streets, gardens and passages.
Benoit
Benoit
Born and raised in Paris, I started studying law but quit to follow my passion for history in La Sorbonne. I’m specialist in Parisian restaurants and cafés history and just published a book about it.
I love spending time in the great Aligre market and exploring my city, looking for the best food spots—particularly sweet, as a flan parisien or pain au chocolat.
When it's rainy and I'm not working on my thesis, I love listening to music and reading, comics as much as classics, as Guy de Maupassant.
Claire
Claire
I'm a French Kiwi, (we're known as Friwis!) and grew up in New Zealand. I've been constantly exploring Paris for 27 years. I'm a proud Parisienne and passionate about my city, forever in awe of its beauty and quirks and transformation, and I love sharing that passion with visitors.
My favourite French food has got to be a good magret de canard but I love all good food!
What I love most about Paris is that you never know what is around a corner -who or what you'll run into and what will happen. And you may think you know an area well but have you seen the magic that's behind that closed door when it opens, or the wonder of the street behind that one you always take?
Judith
Judith
From Paris, born and raised in the city.
Baguette of course ! With cheese or charcuterie... and French fries but Belgian people will tell you it is not French.
Explore the city by walking, discover new places such as restaurants, coffees, museums! Also reading at a terrace or in a park during the summer season. My favorite one? Parc Monceau in the 17th!
Helena
Helena
I am a Danish and American wine and food enthusiast with a deep passion for storytelling and creating memorable experiences.
My favorite French food is probably Sole Meunier (from Bistro Paul Bert of course) and all of the oysters from Normandie.
My favorite thing about Paris is that every single day contains so many possibilities. I’ll be walking about myself, stumble into a friend on the street, and all of the sudden we will be sharing a bottle of rosé champagne and talking for hours.

I grew up in Durham/Chapel Hill, North Carolina and have been living in Paris since 2010 as a published novelist (Slim and The Beast (Inkshares, 2015), The Requisitions (Kingdom Anywhere, 2024)
My favorite French food would have to be la baguette tradition, which can easily accompany a boeuf bourguignon complete with a simple purée.
My favorite thing to do in Paris is to flâner, to leave my home in the morning with a notebook, a book, and no other plan, and see where the city leads me.
Raphaëlle
Raphaëlle
Born and raised in Paris, I have spent my entire life here and only leave the city to travel abroad.
My favorite French food - so many to choose from!-- would have to be a Confit de canard and a Tarte Tatin -with Crème fraîche on top, of course. And a Crème Brulée. And Profiteroles.
My love for Paris is endless, because of Its vibrant cultural scene - always a projection, a theater play, a ballet ... and its culinary offer - truly a heaven for food lovers of all types, budgets and preferences!
Arturo
Arturo
was raised between cannolis and arancine in Sicily but moved to Paris 10 years ago to reconnect with my french, ahem, breton, roots. I love history, especially the history of food and to demolish some well established myths : did you know that the French absolutely loathed potatoes at first? Not a great start for French fries!
My favourite French food has to be crêpes, they bring back childhood memories to me just as madeleines did with Proust.
And my favourite thing to do in Paris is obviously to eat it all!!

Lulu was great! She was very informative, gave us good history regarding the stomping grounds of Julia Child. We walked through beautiful neighborhoods and ate at various places which all had great food (crepes, Perisian sandwiches, chocolate, eclaires, quiche, patisserie, wine and cheese). This was a decent amount of walking but not too much. At the end of the tour, including a walk to the Metro, including a quick stop to the Louvre, we were only at 10K steps.

The BEST adventure through Montmartre
BOOK THIS TOUR!!!!
Our guide was absolutely FANTASTIC. He was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and you could tell he has a passion and love for food and the city. He has the best personality and we enjoyed every minute of the tour and learning about the food and history of Montmartre. We had the very best food and wine. We tried escargot for the first time and it was incredible. We had a fantastic group and the most memorable experience.

We were a family group of 12 ranging from 21 to 77 years and this absolutely suitable for everyone! Silvana was phenomenal in her knowledge of the area and her sense of humor was on point. The food and the wine were outstanding - our collective favorite was the pita at Miznon. We thought the food selection was well balanced - we loved that Silvana shared the French influence that has been incorporated in this amazing Jewish district. Absolutely would do this tour again!

Tris was amazing! He was so knowledgeable on everything French cuisine! He taught us so much about French food and how to choose the best! The food was also amazing! So much great food and so much great wine! I really wish we did this on our first day in Paris and not our last so that we could have eaten at some of the place Tris told us about!

Claire is an amazing guide! We loved hearing about all the Paris history and the history specifically of Le Marais. She also shared interesting anecdotes about local businesses. And stopped at 2 secret gardens we would have never discovered in our own. The food stops were so delicious! The kouginettes from Maison George Larnicol were perfection. We finished with an amazing selection of cheeses and Pinot Noir at a quintessential Paris spot. The tour was a great way to explore Le Marais, meet some new people and enjoy great food and drinks

My husband and I loved the food tour of Montmartre. We learned so much about French cuisine while we were eating our weight in delicious French food! We had escargot, beef bourguignon, cheese and fruit, macrons, and of course some lovely wine. We can recommend this tour enough! Our guide was so knowledgeable and such a fun character. Definitely take this tour if you're in Paris!

Chef Tris and Chef Karl provided a most memorable experience with their charisma, knowledge and storytelling. We did exactly what the tour described with walking in Julia Child’s footsteps on an average day in Paris. We started with a delectable crepe that could be either sweet or savory next door to the creperie that Julia regularly visited (sadly now closed). Then we ate Eclairs, shared jambon beurre baguettes, pain aux raisins, sampled various cheeses with a lovely glass of wine that was Julia’s favorite at her favorite restaurant just right around the corner from her Parisian home. Intermixed with the food was sightseeing and walking through the Latin Quarter and Saint Germain neighborhoods. All in all, our group had a tremendous time and would recommend to anyone even if you aren’t familiar with Julia Child.

I don’t normally write reviews. But this Montmartre food tour was hands down one of the very best things we did in Paris. Our host, Tris, was absolutely awesome - knowledgeable, funny, personable and very instructive on food, sourcing high-quality foods and wines, and giving us great insider-tips on local restaurants and specialty shops. This is not a typical food tour where they speed-walk you around town to sample tiny morsels. We learned about Parisian history and food culture and visited several shops, all culminating in a long, relaxed and thoroughly enjoyable (and delicious) lunch with multiple courses and many different wines. All throughout, Tris was simply amazing. This truly is a must-do tour. My daughters (16 and 19) are still talking about it.

Camile was a delight to have as a food tour guide in the Marais district. Her knowledge of the area and it’s history were awesome, making the afternoon a delight. Camile gave us recommendations for cafes, Boulangeries, places to tempt our tastebuds and hidden areas to relax for the rest of our stay. We highly recommend her as a guide. Thanks Camile.
