Detailed Description

London and Paris can be hard cities to visit. There’s so much to do, so many places to be, so much to see and experience. You can’t ever see it all even if you live there. So you need some focus, something to guide you through the neighborhoods and never-ending landmarks, a lens from which to explore the famous capitals. This handcrafted tour isn’t just for food lovers. It’s for the curious and intrigued, the traveler who wants to admire the iconic sights but see more than just the Eiffel Tower and Big Ben. Food is your lens, the raison d’etre that satisfies the soul and indulges all the senses. A food tour is not just about what you taste. It’s where a food lovers tour of London and Paris is able to take you.

Food is universal. It also has little use for the status quo in London and Paris. You’re equally likely to find something tasty down an atmospheric Victorian lane as a glamorous royal eatery. Food also takes you to neighborhoods that don’t always see a tourist’s eye, markets that hum with tradition, people passionate about their craft, and scenes that transcend ideas of a modern European capital. You can never see everything in London or Paris. But with several nights in each city, you can delve into the famous and the unknown, with every turn bringing another culinary standout.

British food has a terrible reputation, one that’s unfounded in the modern era. There is more to the cuisine that greasy fry-ups, especially in London. After a relaxed first evening in the capital, you taste the best of British on a London food tour, everything from Welsh salami to indulgent pies and champagne-style bubbles. Tour the markets, sample the organic, and follow the journey from farm to table. The next day has a regal feel, the royal sites of Central London combined with a famous high tea experience at the Ritz. You discover London at your own pace before a spot of Michelin dining takes the foodie experience from the east-end market to glitz and glamor.

Take the train to Paris and step out into the city of lights. Stroll the River Seine for an overview of the most famous sights, then step into the Louvre Museum for a VIP tour with wine tasting. Visit Saint-Germain, the iconic home of chocolatiers and macarons, place to satisfy your sweet cravings, and get your hands sticky. Montmartre is another neighborhood best viewed through a foodie lens, stories of the impressionists combining with delicate street flavors. Discover the Palace of Versailles and return to the city for tutored wine and cheese tasting in a traditional bistro, plus Michelin dining to round off this eight-day tour.
