An amazing and delicious way to get to know the area of Paris you’re staying in. Our guide showed us the hidden gems around us and the best spots for what we were interested in trying. Francois had great stories and knowledge of the area, and was friendly and charming. He even helped us find a bakery known for selling the baguette sandwich that I had been craving! Be sure to start on an empty stomach, and save room for dessert!
