Taste of the Left Bank

About this tour

This fantastic tour moves between both the Latin Quarter Saint-Germain, exploring a boulangerie  that revitalized French baking, one of the most exhilarating & expensive fromageries in the city, and many incredible sweets. We’ll sample all this, plus some delicious charcuterie, at a hidden treasure of a wine shop.

What we’ll taste

Hand-shaped traditional baguettes, patés and terrines from a French traiteur, artisinal cheeses from one of the most reputable cheese shops (and affineurs) in France, chocolates from a Meilleur Ouvrier de France (an MOF – the highest rank for a French chocolatier), and plenty of other surprises, including pastry. We’ll also take you to one of our favorite wine shops in Paris and taste some incredible wines along with our cheese and charcuterie.

Practical info

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 Maubert-Mutualité 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!
