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.

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 5-6 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.

Small group tours are capped at eight guests, and tickets are priced at €125 per person, including generous tastings. 

Our tours are led in English by passionate (and vaccinated) food and wine experts and last approximately 3.5 hours. You can plan to walk and stand for approximately two hours, with a seated tasting near the end of the tour. Please let us know about any mobility issues in advance by sending an email to

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. 

We’ll be tasting wine along with our cheese, bread and charcuterie while seated in a wine shop. Water will also be available. Discounts are unfortunately not available on small group tours for those who don’t drink wine, because we’re opening bottles whether you indulge or not. We’re happy to organize a private tour without wine for anyone interested. 


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).
