These are not “canned” generic food & wine tours – no two experiences are the same. During the sign up, I ask you specific questions so I can make this all about what you want to learn/eat/drink/do based around opening hours/days, etc.
Reserve the custom Taste of Paris if you want more time for sourdough bakeries, craft coffee, raw milk cheese shops, pastry shops, enjoying a small plate leisurely lunch, etc.
Reserve the natural wine bar crawl: If drinking with a young, hip crowd with loud music, standing shoulder-to-shoulder in crowded bars with a rock & roll Bourdain attitude, sharing small plates made by up and coming chefs and bottles of natural wine & cocktails is your thing. Don’t wait to save your date. These sell out 4-6 weeks in advance.

“We had such an amazing time eating & drinking through your neighborhood with you, laughing AND learning so much along the way. We felt like we had the inside scoop on Parisian life and strolling along with your chic self we felt part of it all! Meeting celebrity chefs doing their shopping along the way was a little glamour that we didn’t mind one bit. It was as if you gave us our very own VIP passes to a Paris we didn’t know existed! I can’t stop telling people about the most romantic salt in the world that can only be collected when the sea wind is blowing from the East, the dreamy whipped butter, the creamy cheese and the natural wine were all too good for words. The company was excellent, the food delicious, the history fascinating and the whole experience is something we will remember always. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend your tours to anyone – if you are not sure… go on – book it – NOW – the reviews are all true!!” – Carolyn B.

“This is NOT a food ‘tour.’ We learned more on a night out on the town with Wendy than we could have ever learned from going on our own. Not only was every place tailor-made just for us – she brought every bite, sip, place and person to life for us. From the shared face time with chefs, bartenders and local regulars to all the delicious food and drinks, we are so grateful for her pushing us outside our comfort zone to eat and drink things we never would have tried. It was a blast!” – Ashton
Paris, France is one of the greatest food, craft cocktail + natural wine bar cities in the world but don’t mistake this for only liquid fun…there is delicious food!
The places I take you are on the cutting edge of what’s happening today from a new generation of chefs, restaurateurs, bartenders, and other entrepreneurs in the industry who are shaping a brand new generation of Paris. They are equally as interested in delicious food as they are with craft cocktails and wine.
Rock & Roll Vibe + Crowd: If drinking with a young, hip crowd with loud music, standing shoulder-to-shoulder in crowded bars with a rock & roll Bourdain attitude, sharing small plates made by up and coming chefs and sharing bottles of natural wine & cocktails is your thing – don’t wait to save your date. These sell out 4-6 weeks in advance.
