Best food and wine tours in Paris

Ready to become a French gourmand? Treat your foodie side to an amazing food tour in Paris and discover the flavors and traditional dishes of France.

It’s impossible to not want to stuff your face with crepes, baguettes, cheese, duck, escargot, and steak tartare while exploring Paris and sometimes it can be overwhelming having to pick just one dish at dinner!

So take out the guesswork and book a Paris food tour to not only sample the best food in the city, but also learn more about a specific neighborhood, French culture and history, and get expert advice on where to dine during the rest of your stay in Paris.

It’s no secret that Rick and I love food tours as we both think it’s a fun (and tasty!) way to explore a city and learn some fun facts along the way. We’ve enjoyed food tours in San Diego, New York City, London, Reykjavik, and so on, and it’d be impossible to visit a culinary city like Paris and not indulge our taste buds on a food tour!

Whether you want to sample savory French cuisine or go right for the sweet stuff, these are the top food and wine tours in Paris!
