If you love French food and culture this is a MUST
Don't normally write reviews but LOVED my two tours with Jennifer in Jan 2022. I did a tour of North Marais and St. Germain de Pres. Both were lovely, magical experiences. I stayed in Paris a month and these were by far some of my favorite memories. Jennifer is a walking encyclopedia with SO much historical/sociological knowledge on the places we were visiting and the food we were tasting. It added so much depth and dimension. .. She's also just super-fun and friendly and it was really fun meeting others on the tour. It's also not super “touristy” and I appreciate the depth and care that the tour is set up with in terms of the locations we went. It's just very special. I could go on and on… Definitely try this out if you are a foodie or just live to eat, like me 🙂 I found out about the tour through Dorie Greenspan's newsletter and it just goes to show that Dorie Greenspan will never, ever steer you wrong.

The good stuff!
We had a fantastic Left Bank tour with Neil. He took us to award winning locations that we otherwise wouldn’t have gone in to and we experienced everything from incredible croissants to sublime chocolates. I was hesitant to do this tour, but I am so glad that we did! Neil was engaging and very knowledgeable about all of the foods that were presented. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with him as well as every delicious bite of the wonderful foods he shared. I can highly recommend this tour.

Such a treat! I was fortunate to be able to participate in TWO Marais food tours in Jan 2022. The first was with Stephen on a wonderful rainy afternoon. Stephen's tour was delightfully informative, delicious, and thoughtfully organized and paced. He is a great guide. I enjoyed it so much that I signed up for another Marais tour for later in the week when my son, aged 22, and his friend would be able to join in. The young men loved the experience with Isabelle, as I knew they would. Isabelle is charming, warm and friendly, and highly knowledgeable and passionate about French cuisine. These 2 tours were 100% highlights of our time in Paris. Merci mille fois!

Fabulous food tour in St. Germain
We had a wonderful tour of the quartier with Lola. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave us many interesting historical tidbits about places we visited. Very engaging and lively. And the food, of course, was fabulous – from apple tarts at Poilane to unique cheeses, charcuterie and wines. I would highly recommend this tour.

Wonderful food tour! 
Our party of 4 had a fabulous private tour of the South Marais with Jennifer. It was a crisp January day and we especially appreciated that Paris by Mouth arranges their tours so that you are eating and drinking inside. Our group is a well-traveled bunch who appreciates food and yet we learned so much about cheese, wine, patisserie, bread and chocolate. Learning the history of the Marais as we walked was the icing on the cake. Highly recommend!

Delightful Family Food Tour of Marais
Our family of 5 (2 adults, 3 children ages 12, 12, 15) loved our food tour of Le Marais. Our guide, Isabelle, was so personable and knowledgeable both about the neighborhood and about food and cooking. We really enjoyed stopping at the several different food shops, and we were impressed how Isabelle even asked and took into account our specific food preferences when selecting items at the shops for us to sample. This was a definitely highlight of our Paris stay, and we would highly recommend the tour!

A must-do! 
On my solo trip to Paris, I scheduled numerous tours—a private tour of the Louvre, a group tour of La Marais, a small group Eiffel Tower experience, etc. Paris by Mouth was far and away the best! Far and away. The was organized and our guide Lola was incredible. I now know the history of croissants, what it takes to be a baguette, how to slice cheese without embarrassing myself, and so much more! She was a wealth of information and an all-around joyful person. And of course…last but not least, the food! Omg the food. The cheese! The wines! The pastries! The. Best.

  1. We absolutely LOVED the Taste of the Latin Quarter tour with Meg–one week ago! Meg of course was outstanding, the group was small and intimate, and the choices of places to visit was outstanding!
    Everything was wonderful–and the opportunity to enjoy all of our purchases at a small end of walk “picnic” made this a highlight of our trip to Paris!
    We have friends leaving for Paris soon–already they are looking into booking a tour!

  2. I forgot to say that Catherine was our guide! Catherine I’m sorry! You were wonderful as were all our food stops along the way. I will certainly book another tour with PBM if [when] I return to Paris.
