Best of Paris

Visiting the Louvre on a Paris food tour with TIK.Among our favorite culinary tours are our Paris cooking tours and gourmet food tours of Paris. The capital of France, Paris has long been one of the world’s top tourist destinations. It has everything to offer: a fascinating history which you can trace through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance to the Nineteenth-Century Haussmannian urban renewal and into the modern era.

Paris is a gastronomic capital, so a culinary tour of Paris or a wine tour Paris is a natural fit. From the most high-end restaurants to a bustling brasserie, from the cafes to the creperies, you can enjoy Parisian cuisine during a cooking class in Paris for tourists, or even in a professional atelier if you are a more experienced chef. The best food tours of Paris will also include foodie walking tours in which you can taste local products as well as a wine tasting tour of Paris in which you can learn about the local wines. You will even cook and dine in a real French home, a unique gastronomic and cultural experience.

Vegetables at the market during a culinary tour of ParisWhen you are not cooking, eating, or drinking, there is still plenty to do!

You will visit both the Louvre and the Musee d’Orsay with an expert guide and see some of the world’s masterpieces, including the Mona Lisa and works by the Impressionists.
