There is a very good reason why Paris is called the "City of Light". It is stunningly beautiful during the day, but it is even more magical at night. The Montmartre and South Pigalle areas really come alive in the evening, when the tourists are gone and the true Parisians come out to enjoy the area's secret wine bars and restaurants. The little streets and cobbled lanes are transformed at night, illuminated by the warm glow of the Paris street lamps and candles from restaurants. It is the perfect place for a wonderful dinner.
Daytime or evening, you can be sure that when you come on our food tour in Paris, you will get to eat some of the best French food and wine, guaranteed to get your taste buds tingling.

Our tour is different from all the food tours you may have done around the world. Our aim in to make the experience as authentic possible, so you eat like a true Parisian. In Paris, its common to shop around for the best ingredients and as such we go from place to place and give you small samples of the food along the way. Your professional guide will buy cheese, wines, cured meat and pastry at each stop and explain all about the food and history of the area. After we have bought all of these delicious foods, we will lead you to a nice and cosy place where you will enjoy all the feast of food and drinks and eat just as a local would do! All the food will be served with quality wines or non-alcoholic beverages if you prefer.
We chose the Montmartre district for our Paris food tours because of the area's flourishing restaurant scene, historical culture and charming ambiance. In the past, windmills, farming areas and art studios were prominent features of the Montmartre landscape. Now the area is flourishing with first-class wine bars, fine-dining restaurants and rare shops, all adding to its appeal as one of the best and most unique food destinations in the world and is even prettier by night.
