ABOUT THIS NEIGHBORHOOD

Throughout its long history, the Marais has been home to successive waves of aristocrats, immigrants, artists, and hipsters. The northern section of this quarter is now exploding with art galleries, independent fashion boutiques, and cool new eateries.

ABOUT THIS TOUR

This tour varies by day and what’s open, but we’ll often taste buttery croissants and crisp baguettes from an award-winning baker, then visit one of the best chocolate shops in Paris (and therefore the world). We’ll sample luxurious ganaches (bonbons) and other unforgettable creations in a stunning space that looks like a high-end jewelry shop. We’ll visit a family-run fromagerie where they carefully age cheese in their cellars that run below the shop and below the city’s oldest covered market (next door). We’ll visit our favorite traiteur and charcuterie shop in the city to sample stunning terrines and other cured meat delicacies. We’ll conclude with a seated tasting inside a cave à vins to taste and learn about our savory treats while sampling different French wines. 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.

PRICE & PRACTICAL DETAILS

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 République metro stop. 

Just like the West Saint-Germain tour, this tour features some charcuterie. If you don’t eat meat, you can skip it, and there will be plenty of other delicious tastes for you to enjoy. If you prefer to join a tour that does not include meat, we recommend our South Marais and East Saint-Germain tours. 

CANCELLATIONS POLICY

Refunds are available for those who cancel with at least 48 hours notice minus a €20 cancellation fee per ticket. No refunds or changes are allowed within 48 hours of your tour. Clients who arrive more than ten minutes late without calling or not at all (no-shows) will be treated as cancellations with no refund. Our tours run rain or shine.

Clients who are booking tours within 24 hours of their arrival in Paris should be aware that we do not offer refunds in the case of delayed flights (because this is such a common occurrence).

  1. Hi Terence! We’re only offering a few routes during the Olympics and we haven’t yet gotten enough confirmations from shops on the North Marais route to guarantee that will be open. I recommend booking one of the other options before they sell out!

  2. Hi,

    Do you know yet if you will be offering the North Marais tour the week of July 29?

    Thanks.

    Terence
