    What to Expect
    In front of the 5th century Saint-Germain des Prés Abbey, from the very beginning of the tour, you’ll feel in the shoes of a real Parisian. A few meters away from the legendary Café de Flore and Les Deux Magots, you’ll meet your passionate and cheerful tour guide, who will be delighted to share with you a bunch of anecdotes about Paris and also some of the best addresses to shop the best fresh and unique food specialties.
    Among the several shops you’ll discover, you’ll probably be stunned by one of the most original butchers of the capital. The latter also happens to be one of the most talented of the country… His cured meat specialties will please your taste buds as it pleases more than one Michelin starred restaurants in France and all over the world!
    As you will wander around the most elegant and refined areas of the City of Lights, you ‘ll certainly not miss the delicious chocolate candies, filled with exquisite and creative ganaches or crunchy pralines neither than the original and colorful collection of pastries displayed in the window shops along the way. Get ready for some fun and generous tastings, paced by the sight of authentic streets and buildings, such as this 17th century arcade pathway, full of old and picturesque little stores. 
    Not too far from the University of La Sorbonne and the wonders of the Luxembourg Garden, your tour guide will take you to the temple of cheeses. In a very intimate and unsuspected little shop, you’ll have plenty of time to buy some exquisite souvenirs from our regions, while admiring huge wheels of cheeses coming directly from the Alpes Mountains. What is more pleasant than sipping a glass of french wine with a selection of tasty cheeses? 
    As you'll be in the most famous chocolatiers area in the world, the chocolate and its making won't have any secret for you anymore! Tasting some Meilleur Ouvrier de France's chocolate candy, learning about the "bean to bar" concept, and being able to distinguish a fresh cocoa bean from a roasted one, is also on the program.
