Why take this tour?

Charming, vibrant, and offering incredible views of Paris, get a taste of Montmartre and the history of the area through its delicious food. You’ll learn about the delicate art of patisserie over a moreish sample, try delicious charcuterie and cheeseboard offerings, all while discovering authentic local spots you’d never find otherwise. 

Lose yourself on a culinary discovery of artistic Montmartre, taking you through the hills of the 18th arrondissement and discovering its best-kept food secrets along the way. 

You’ll begin with a visit to a veritable French institution: the boulangerie! This one has been serving the locals of the area for generations. As you take in the smell of freshly baked goods, you’ll hear about the classic - modest yet delicious - French breakfast and try one of their delectable treats yourself. 

A few steps along the road will bring you to one of the best delis in the neighborhood. Run by two passionate women who opened the shop during the pandemic, they focus on the highest quality produce from small, independent producers. You’ll get a lesson in how to grocery shop like the French do. Learn what to look out for when selecting vegetables, and, of course, some tasty cheeseboard picks are just waiting to be sampled.

From there, it’s on to some fine charcuterie in a local grocer. Try one of the classic French ‘fast food’ items along with a locally brewed beer, produced within walking distance of the store. 

You’ll take to the leafy streets and steps next on a short historical walk, where your guide will point out some of the most important aspects of Montmartre, giving you a true sense of its history and significance to the French capital. It’s time for a sweet treat next, as you visit a Parisian patisserie. Hear about this fine culinary art and sample a delicious chou – one of Paris’ most beloved desserts. You’ll top this off with a visit to a specialty biscuit store for some freshly baked, homemade confectionery. 

We hope you’ve saved room for the main course! Step inside a timeless French bistro and tuck in to a hearty lunch of steak tartare (or cooked, if you prefer) and frites – a perfect end to a day of discovery.
