Taste of Saint-Germain

About this tour 

Saint-Germain is a destination for visitors from all around the world who come to shop and (most importantly) to eat. For this tour, we’ll be exploring some of the tiniest and most special food shops in this gastronomically-gifted neighborhood.

What we’ll taste

Hand-shaped breads and buttery pastries from a wood-burning oven, traditional charcuterie from a charismatic butcher, artisinal cheeses from all over France, chocolates from a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (an MOF – the highest rank for a French chocolatier), and sweets from an acclaimed pastry chef. We’ll also take you to one of our favorite wine shops in Paris where we will sit and enjoy some incredible wines with our cheese and charcuterie.

Practical information

Price for a small group tour: 110€ per person, including all tastings. Our tours are all conducted in English and last approximately three hours. This tour will finish with a seated tasting that includes wine, but we’ll be on our feet and moving for at least two hours throughout the tour. We’ll send you the exact meeting point upon booking, but you can plan to begin near the Saint-Sulpice métro stop and finish near the Odéon métro stop. We maintain very small group sizes and are unable to add guests to tours that don’t have enough available tickets. Send us an email if your desired dates are sold out or if you have any other questions. We hope to meet you soon!
