We ate pastries, cheese, fresh fruit, vegetables, and bread, drank coffee and wine, all while learning about Parisian history, customs, culinary arts, and even architecture. We toured the streets of the Bastille and the interior of the Market d'Aligre. Truly a great and unique

Josepi was a great guy to talk to and we did enjoy that. We walked to a little cafe and had a cappuccino and a few croissants. Then we walked to the market and looked at the fruit. We then walked to the indoor market and looked around. Then he got us 6 containers of various

Response from MarionTheFrenchWay, General Manager at Small-Group Gourmet Food and Market Tour of the Bastille District in Paris
Responded Sep. 4, 2019
Thank you for your feedback. I feel really bad about this situation as we try to hire really good guides and present the best food on the food tours we offer. I called Giuseppe the guide who conducted the tour that day for him to give me more details and he explained that the clients declined the food he offered along the tour and that he had to give them the cheeses to take away as they refused to eat on the tour. He didn't offer more food because he felt they weren't interested and took them to visit an extra really nice area (where we don't normally take clients) to compensate their lack of interest. He insured me that he has done his best to accommodate these clients. We have now proceeded to a full refund and offered to attend for free any of our other activities in France.

I regretted for not having good breakfast in preparation for this tour, because there were not much food to eat! Our guide was very knowledgeable and explaining local history and guided us into charming side walks etc, but no food for the first hour! I was cold and hungry and

I booked the Bastille District food tour as a solo participant and although it was confirmed through Viator 3 days in advance, the tour guide did not show up on the confirmed date & time on the voucher and I ended up waiting for 30 minutes without notification that the tour had
