Saint-Germain is a destination for visitors from all around the world who come to shop and (most importantly) to eat. The eastern part of Saint-Germain, which we’ll explore on this tour, is filled with historic cafés, independent bookstores, art and antique galleries, fashion boutiques, and exceptional food shops. For this tour, we’ll be exploring some of the tiniest and most special food shops in this gastronomically-gifted neighborhood. This is our original Saint-Germain food tour. We’ve recently added a West Saint-Germain tour, and have renamed this the East Saint-Germain tour.

This tour varies by day and what’s open, but we’ll often sample iconic breads from a world-famous bakery. We’ll visit a historic covered market and select an array of perfectly aged cheeses from a specialist fromagerie. We’ll indulge in rich chocolate and show-stopping pâtisserie from a master pastry chef. After shopping, strolling and nibbling, we’ll relax with a seated pairing and discussion of wine, cheese, bread and then finish on a sweet note. You can plan on visiting 5 shops of exceptional quality – these vary to reflect the season, your guide’s expertise, and your cravings – and eating enough that you won’t need a meal soon after.

This tour does not include any meat. If you’re craving charcuterie, we recommend our North Marais and West Saint-Germain tours.

Our very popular small group tours are limited to 8 guests. Tickets are priced at 130€ per person, including generous food & wine tastings. Tours are led by food & wine experts and last around 3 hours. We’re mostly moving & standing during the first 1.5 hours, with a seated tasting the last half of the tour. The seated tasting in the winter is always indoors and cozy and with wine, making this a great activity for cold or rainy days. Just come prepared with an umbrella and good shoes for the first half of the tour. 

We’ll send you the exact meeting point upon booking, but you can plan to finish near the Odéon metro stop. 


A 100% refund is available for those who cancel with at least 48 hours advance notice. No refunds will be given for clients who cancel with less than 48 hours notice, or arrive more than 20 minutes late without calling, or don’t show up at all (no-shows). Our tours run rain or shine.

Clients who are booking tours for the day of their arrival in Paris should be aware that we do not offer refunds in the case of delayed flights or trains (because this is such a common occurrence).

  1. The Louvre? Sure. The Eiffel Tower? Yeah, you and 10,000 of your closest friends. Food tour of the gastronomic capital of the world? Insanely great. Maximum of 7 people. Three food shops, 1 food market and 1 wine shop. A taste at each of the 3 food shops, and an indoor picnic of food market items in the back room of the wine shop. Each purveyor was world class in their respective speciality. Seriously world class. Our guide Patrick is the most convivial and charming Irishman you’re likely to meet. Incredible command of the history and product of each shop as well as deep background of each speciality: bakery goods, chocolate, macarons, cheese, charcuterie and wine. The curveball? I am wheelchair bound and the “walking” tour was easy to roll with only 1 narrow doorway. The best experience of our Paris stay. Thanks Patrick.
