The tour with Emilie was fantastic! She adapted well to the change of my husband not attending the tour snd personalized it very well to my interests. Her insights and information about the history of Le Marais gave me great background for walking around on my own later. The food stops were amazing! I loved learning about the history of the Poilane bread, the buckwheat crepe with ham and cheese was my first savory crepe and so good! The confitture shop was out of this world and the chocolatier Edwin at EdwarT have so much wonderful info about chocolate origins as well as fantastic flavors. The Merveilleux were mervielleux! Melt in your mouth, light creamy flavor explosion!

This was an excellent tour. Emily our guide provided us a great food and wine experience in the Marais district. Every stop was enjoyable and we also learned a lot of the Marais which was very helpful given we were staying there. Highly recommended.
