Eat Your Way Around the City of Light Like a True Parisian

A focus on fresh ingredients, a nod to tradition, a bold attitude towards new trends, and a diverse international influence – cuisine in the French capital will knock your béret clean off.

But to find it, you’ll need to venture into authentic local neighbourhoods. Join us to discover the real culinary treats of Paris. This area of Paris will provide you with an authentic Parisian experience, where locals live and far from the crowds.

We want to help you experience what life is really like in this iconic city by discovering the places we love, meeting the people that bring them to life and tasting the foods everybody in Paris is talking about right now. Join one of our small groups of curious travellers like you for an experience you will share together and bring back home with you.

From creative Croque Monsieurs to charcuterie and award-winning pastries, our friendly tour guide will introduce you to some of the most passionate tastemakers in this cultural hotspot.

You’ll meet people who have created culinary businesses with their bare hands, constantly playing with flavours and techniques to make something delicious and unique.

You’ll also have time to hear stories and talk to each culinary entrepreneur – giving you a chance to really get to know these local artisans.  

Listen to their stories, taste local life and celebrate the love of food together.

Fantastic food, wonderful history lesson, and amazing guide!

I did the East London Food Tour today! What a treat! We sampled amazing food that the locals know and love AND experienced the history of the area. Cannot recommend this enough!
