What you'll do

On our Secret Food Tour: Le Marais Paris, you'll enjoy a variety of classic French foods starting with coffee and croissants, to the best French cheeses, breads and meats. There are the classic Croque-monsieur, plus some tasty desserts and our mystery Secret Dish as well.

Our tour starts at the bustling heart of Le Marais. We will visit the old streets, go to one of the oldest markets in Paris, enjoy many local shops and sit at typical restaurants to enjoy local food. We will finish near the famous rue de Rivoli, one of the main streets of the city. We will realise how the locals live in this part of Paris and how the city's history has influenced its gastronomy.

All the food will be served with quality wines or, if you prefer, non-alcoholic beverages. A thoughtfully curated Upgraded Drink Package is available.

  • After meeting with the guide at Temple station, you will first have an introduction concerning the area
  • You will then have a taste of a French coffee complemented with a croissant in a typical Parisian café.
  • Go to a local bakery to collect some amazing French baguette
  • Some tiny streets later, you will have the chance to taste and see the diversity of gastronomy in the local Marché des Enfants Rouges, where you will get to try very tasty French cheeses and some white wine.
  • You will go through the streets of Le Marais, full of magnificent "Hôtels Particuliers".
  • Enjoy a very French Croque-monsieur and meat platter accompanied by some red wine.
  • Get into the South Marais and visit the Jewish district with its picturesque atmosphere.
  • Finally, go to an amazing macaron & chocolate shop where quality rhymes with refined.
  • All tour along, your guide will teach you some great knowledge about both the history and the gastronomy to enhance the whole experience

WHY LE MARAIS?

We chose Le Marais district for our Paris food tour because... you can't go to Paris and skip the Marais area!
Here, you will feel a specific atmosphere and enjoy the beauty of the medieval Paris. Le Marais hosts many outstanding buildings of historic and architectural importance.
This tour will start in north of le Marais and we will end near Saint Paul metro station. That way, you will see two different parts of this beautiful district: The quiet one and the busiest one!
At the end of the tour, feel free to have a walk around to see all the numerous fashion boutiques, trendy shops, wine shops and art galleries and museums.
