Praise for Stephen

We spent an amazing morning with Stephen rambling the streets of the old Marais learning about produce and sampling (photographing) as we went before the mother of all tasting sessions at a cute little wine store. The company was lovely, the food was great, Stephen was a fabulous guide to it all and helped us plan our gastronomic imperatives for our remaining time staying in the city – absolutely the best way to get to know the different areas of Paris.

We spent the day with Stephen and experienced a beautiful bakery, world-class chocolate store and macaron bakery, delicious charcuterie and cheese, and lovely wines. Stephen (from Ireland!) seemed to know his stuff, had a great sense of humor, and was a fantastic host. We highly recommend this food tour – it’s well worth the price! Ask for Stephen, although I’m sure all the guides are wonderful.

I was looking forward to this trip because of this tour. It was a great experience not just for the food itself but for the history surrounding the food (and how say bread figured in the French Revolution) and the various personal histories of the owners of the shop (i.e. Finance guy turned Best Baguette Winner, generations of owners, husband and wife team, etc.). Stephen was a great guy, very friendly and accommodating with our questions and curiosities. We did Taste of the Marais and will definitely do the other tours on our next trip to Paris!

My husband and I spent a lovely and delicious Thanksgiving afternoon with three other couples from the U.S. and our Paris by Mouth guide, Stephen. We had a very enjoyable group and Stephen was the perfect host. He was most knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. ?via TripAdvisor in November 2019

My BF and I had such an amazing time on the food tour of the St. Germain area with Stephen. It was our first full day in Paris, so the tour was a great way to kick off a walk around our neighborhood, while trying some delicious foods. Stephen was awesome! He was knowledgeable, patient, and a great guide. We learned so much and were able to try some of the best wine, cheeses, breads, meats, and desserts that Paris has to offer. I would definitely say this was one of the highlights of our visit and would highlight recommend it to anyone, especially our lovely guide, Stephen!

We we on a tour with Stephen of the Left Bank. Stephen was very knowledgeable, but down to earth. He easily kept the conversation going while providing the history of Paris’s bread, cheese, meat, chocolate and wine. The tour consists of a small group which made the experience more personal . We all enjoyed the food and wine around a table with great conversation.

We took a Paris by Mouth “Taste of Marais” tour yesterday with guide Stephen. He has an excellent background in food and wine as he’s been a chef in the past. His comments were extremely informed, and his choices of boulangeries, cheese shops, and wine stores were ‘top notch.’ His good humor and simple explanations of somewhat complicated topics made the rain on our tour a trifling diversion. We’re looking forward to additional food tours with Paris by Mouth. With luck, we’ll have Stephen as a guide again.

My husband and I took the Left Bank Tour with Stephen and it was truly one of the highlights of our trip! Stephen was enaging, super knowledgable and most importantly FUN! We had a great time learning about Paris food treasures and then enjoying them together with our small group in the quaint wine cellar. Highly reccommend!

The tour leader Stephen was very engaging, and extremely knowledgable. Not only did we have a great range of food and wine to sample, he provided the history of the shops, the family purveyors, as well as the history of the foods. The group was small enough (8 people) that we were able to get to know each other and engage. Stephen clearly had a history with many of the purveyors which enhanced the experience as well.

My boyfriend and I went on this tour and loved every minute of it. Stephen, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, efficient, and personable and made the experience worthwhile. We sampled some incredible bread, cheeses, charcuterie, chocolates, desserts, and wines that we would have not known to look for before. Very educational and enjoyable. Don’t even think twice about it- just book it!! Well worth every penny. Thank you, Stephen, for an unforgettable experience!

Our tour guide, Stephen, was knowledgeable and passionate on all the types of food that we tasted, and everything was absolutely fantastic! This tour is a great experience, and I’d highly recommend it to anyone. If you want a great introduction to the food scene in Paris and the ability to sample high quality and diverse cheese, breads, and desserts – this tour delivers! Thanks for the amazing tour, Stephen.

We met our guide at the designated location and he introduced himself as Stephen. Although not a Parisian, he explained how he had immigrated from his homeland of Ireland and fell in love with Paris which in turn became his new home. He had that ease and friendliness with about him that makes one comfortable immediately. And also throw in a great sense of humor too. Throughout the tour he was very attentive in that right sense, not too doting but very aware. So as food guides goes, Stephen was on spot!

I cannot say enough good things about Stephen and this tour. He was so personable and knowledgeable. And the food. Oh la la! We learned the intracacies of judging baguette quality. And of course sample one of the award winnning baguettes. And of course an award winning croissant – which easily ten times better than any croissant I have ever had. Stephen has a special affinity for cheeses and we sampled and learned about the 5 different worlds of French cheese. Oh, and the chacuterie! The rillettes and the terrines were out of this world. And Stephen nicely paired our samplings with yummy wines. My only problem was that I did not have enough room in my stomach to eat it all up. Truly stellar. Tasty and informative. You should do it.

Stephen was our host for the Taste of the Marais tour-and he was fantastic! Our group of 5 really enjoyed our experience learning about local food culture, local regulations, and some hidden gems of the Marais. Stephen was so friendly and knowledgeable, he definitely helped make this tour memorable and fun. The tour was a highlight of our group’s trip and we were still talking about it days later.

This is our second PBM tour. Our first one was a few years ago in the St. Germain and it was wonderful. Our only regret is that we did the tour too late in our stay to take advantage of our new Parisian foodie knowledge. This time we did the Marais tour with Stephen and it was early in our stay. We continue to be impressed by the guides, their knowledge of the city, it’s food and the food industry is always fascinating and super useful. We will continue to book PBM every time we are in Paris.

Stephen was an incredible guide and answered all of our questions and was funny, kind and very welcoming. We would definitely request him again if we had the opportunity! Even though we have been to Paris many times, this tour was a great way to get an insider’s view and learn about some places we had not yet been to before. We can’t wait to go back and do another one!
