You won't be disappointed

Great tour! I learned a lot as well as changed my mind on two things: French Onion soup and ham. Having tried these among many other other fantastic items from breads to dessert and all in between, I have a greater appreciation for food, its preparation and quality. The last stop was a wine tasting but I skipped that part since I don't drink. There was a bit of walking which was great but not so much that I was exhausted by the end of the tour. I highly suggest doing this towards the beginning of your trip!

Dear Kimberly, Thank you for trusting us with your Paris vacation. We are very happy you enjoyed our tasting so much, we even made you change your mind on French Onion soup and ham, as that is definitely the biggest achievement we could reach :)! We wish you all the best on your future travels, and hope you will join us in other countries soon. All the best,

Delicious food tour!

What a great tour!! Our guide Michelle, was fantastic. We tasted some of the best in the Marais district. From croissant, to macaroons, to savory cheeses and meats, pierogi, chick pea wrap, and a very tasty red and white wine. She was very interactive and personal. Made sure everyone on the tour was engaged. Our favorite was the French Onion Soup at the end. Perfect meal. Come hungry as they say, there is plenty of food to eat and a lot of variety. Afterwards, she went the extra step and showed us a cute quaint cafe where my daughter sipped on some delicious coffee.

This was a terrific morning! Jess was a terrific guide, learning everyone in the group's name, and engaging everyone in the group throughout our time together. From the time we began to gather at the meeting place, she enabled of random list of people who happened to sign up for the same tour at the same time to become a group. She provided interesting information not only about the foods we sampled and the neighborhood we visited, but also about the history of each of the establishments we visited. From start to finish, this was a delightful experience.

Superb! Michele our guide was fantastic! She has a Masters in French History, so she is very knowledgeable about the city. But as she says, “Don’t let historical facts get in the way of a good story!” She makes sure you are entertained as well as educated. As for the food, everything was delicious. Each place was carefully selected based on how it ties to the French aesthetic of cuisine and its importance to its history and culture. Every stop was unique and welcoming. I highly recommend this tour!

The perfect tour of the local food culture

This wonderful tour gives you an insight into all the facets of the vibrant food culture of the Marais neighborhood of Paris. Jess was the perfect tour guide and was very knowledgeable about the local restaurants and shops, as well as the culture and history of the place. This complete package allows you to try not only the traditional french classics like cheese, charcuteries and wine, but also jewish and levantine delicacies. I can't recommend it enough!

Paris is a city made up of individuals, and we like to celebrate the amazing and unique food professionals, as well as the traditional. Hope to see you in one of our other cities Devour's in Barcelona, Rome, Lisbon, Madrid, San Sebastian and Seville too!

The best way to tour the Marais!!

Spectacularly presented by Ellie, who was knowledge-filled, energetic and enthousiastic about her topic, the 10 of us met some incredibly friendly shop-owners, ate amazingly dellcious food and sweets, and had a tasting of a couple of wines at the end of the tour which we would never have known about otherwise. The Marais was already one of my favorite neighborhoods in Paris, but I learned and saw so much more in detail than I had ever known before. The time just flew by, partially because of the congenial mood that Ellie set for our group. I will do this and other "Devour" tours as soon as possible, bringing my husband next time, and will highly recommend this to all of my friends who travel to Europe. A total blast!!

This tour with Ellie was more than we could have asked for. Not only was she delightful but her knowledge of food and the choices of local eateries that were chosen were so delicious and different. We would highly recommend this to anyone who wants a taste of Paris!

This was a wonderful food tour. Ellie, our guide was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable about the food and the wine and the Paris neighborhood. Enthusiastic with a wonderful wit. What a pleasure to spend half a day with her and see what a Paris neighborhood is all about.

Our guide for this tour was Jess from the UK and she was the best! She has lived in Paris for seven years and is an expert on the Marais, she made us an expert by the end of the tour. Really enjoyed everything about it and you get more than enough food for a good lunch.The wine tasting, the last stop, was great also.We will do again next time we are in Paris!
