We had a great experience. The food was perfect and the tour guide was awesome, she knew so much history and great at taking care of the group. We recommend her and the tour itself.

Saint-Germain Flavors Sweet & Savory Food Tasting Tour
Got to visit really famous, historic shops - pastries, chocolate, confectionery- and a very quaint but old bistro for wine, cheese and charcuterie. Would have liked a bit more time to buy items. French chef was an excellent tour guide - very informative!

Paris Prestige : Saint-Germain-Des-Prés Food Tour
Anaïs, one of the best tour guides I’ve had, explained the history of important places we passed as we walked from shop to shop, adding interest to what could have been “just a walk”. My love of desserts made visiting patisseries the highlight of the tour. Learning how some of the desserts were created was fascinating. The cheese shop was my second favorite. It’s was very quick pace to cover the itinerary in the allotted time.

The final stop was my most memorable. We tasted several kinds of chocolate and discussed the different flavors and feel and connection with the regions where the cocoa beans were grown.

Saint-Germain Flavors Sweet & Savory Food Tasting Tour
Great tour! We sampled incredibly delicious foods, got a sense of St Germain history and feel, and hung out it a popular local gathering spot for wine, delicious charcuterie, cornicons, cheese, and conversation. Best of all was our guide, Nicolas, who lives in the neighborhood and clearly loves it. He is knowledgeable, personable, and very nice. He really cared about our enjoyment and took great pleasure offering surprises along the way. Everyone had a great time.

Fantastic tour with Louise! Her familiarity and knowledge of the history of both the foods we tasted and of St. Germain-des-Pres as a “neighborhood” was so enjoyable. A wonderful, informative, easy and delicious way to spend the day.

Luxembourg Garden and Museum

One of the quarter’s most sublime pleasures is to spend time in the Luxembourg Garden (Jardin du Luxembourg). Marie de' Medici, the widow of King Henry IV, created these perfectly manicured lawns and flower beds placed around sumptuous fountains and pools as part of her palace here. Within the gardens is Paris’s oldest public museum, Musée du Luxembourg, which opened in 1750.
