Get to know the City of Light through the eyes of a local on this tour full of tantalising treats and cultural gems! Start your Paris tour right in the heart of one of Paris’ most expensive and fashionable areas, where luxury, elegance, and beauty are around every corner. Stop in at an illustrious food store and take the chance to sample a mouth-watering macaron, a delicious French speciality, and an ultimate Paris travel experience.
Your Paris city tour continues towards the iconic Louvre, home to some of the world’s most celebrated art. The enigmatic Mona Lisa and gorgeous Venus de Milo both live in this treasure trove of fine art. We won't be stopping in (it can take hours, no - days, to properly explore the grand Louvre!), but we will wander through an arcade that offers a free glimpse into the famous sculpture gallery, relax in the well-manicured gardens, and enjoy some of the best sightseeing Paris has to offer.
Next on this Paris food tour, head to a lively Parisian market to indulge in one of France’s most popular gastronomic pleasures - cheese! Perhaps taste some smooth, mild Brie or sample a slice of pungent Roquefort – known as the ‘King of Cheeses’. Afterwards, amble through Paris’ secret arcades to discover quirky shops, unique boutiques, and one of the oldest buildings in Paris.
Finally, walk to the fascinating, medieval neighborhood of Le Marais. Full of sweet shops, patisseries, boutiques, and cafes, Le Marais offers insight into French culture and the secret Paris local way of life. Finish the tour in the forecourt of Paris contemporary art gallery: Pompidou centre, an incredible example of modern architecture in the hart of medieval Paris. A fitting finale to this revealing tour of Paris’ best kept secrets.
