Guided walks around Paris
Discover the capital on foot with a themed walk or guided tour

The fashionable Parisian is a hard act to follow. How to achieve their inimitable style?

With help from an expert guide and chef, you will visit a select number of local artisanal food suppliers with an opportunity to taste what’s on offer, ranging from an exquisite foie gras tasting to a private cheese workshop in a cheese monger’s shop.
