Besides having lots of girl bonding at the Paris bloggers meet-up a few weeks ago, Margo organized a gourmet food tour with Hidden Paris Walking Tours for all of us! Now considering I love food (especially gourmet, yummy food), I had no hesitation in saying yes!
This tour did not disappoint and I’d highly recommend it to everyone :) Delphine, our wonderful tour guide, was someone you just wanted to grab coffee with and talk to for hours. She was just so interesting…and so knowledgeable about Paris and the food industry!
I spent almost 3 hours stuffing my face with as many chocolates, macarons, hot chocolates, coffees, and pastries that I could get a hold of on this tour :)
The gorgeous neighborhood of Saint Germain! Our tour took place all around this area and I absolutely adored it. The architecture is so old and grand while the shops that line the street feel cozy and inviting.
Our tour started at Pierre Herme, which has the most delicious macarons and desserts. Every time I’m in Paris, I actually always buy myself a box of macarons from here. I’ll have one of everything, please!
Admiring all the fresh fruit, vegetables, and cheese from this adorable indoor market! Everything was just so yummy. I devoured a box of raspberries before I even had the chance to take a picture of it!
Delphine told me I had to try an apple pastry and a chocolate pastry. Based on the photos below, I can attest that neither disappointed! Also, you can see the outtake of me trying to eat the chocolate pastry ; ) You can’t blame me for wanting to stuff my face with such deliciousness!
Our wonderful tour guide Delphine! I kind of wanted to steal that scarf from her (it is one of my favorite colors!) Delphine is super cool…she used to work for the French Embassy in the cultural section (I think that was her section!) before following her passion of photography and food. Besides leading these tours with two other friends, she has a photography business and goes on assignment for a lot of human interest pieces around the world.
Side streets in Paris are my favorite kind of streets to find! To the right is Un Dimanche a Paris, only one of the best chocolate stores in Paris. Their brunch serves EVERYTHING with chocolate. Now that’s a meal I can 100% support!
Thanks so much again to Hidden Paris Walking Tours for providing such a wonderful gourmet food tour for all of us! And thanks Margo, Jen, Melanie, and Alex for such a fun, awesome weekend in Paris!
Even though this is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own. I would never share a product or experience I didn’t 100% love!
