Overview

Explore Paris’ colorful Bastille district on a 3-hour food tour led by an expert food-loving guide! Spreading out into three Paris arrondissements, the Bastille area is best known for being a hotbed of history, but the area is also an up-and-coming foodie paradise. Visit gourmet delicatessens, patisseries, wine bars and, of course, the must-see Marché d’Aligre. This bustling market boasts a treasure trove of specialist food stalls with quality French produce at bargain prices – perfect for all your gastronomic needs!

This small-group food tour is limited to just eight people, ensuring you’ll receive personalized attention from your guide.

Your 3-hour tour starts in the heart of Paris’ Bastille district, home to one of the most authentic and traditional Parisian markets – Marché d’Aligre. After meeting your knowledgeable guide, set off on a leisurely walking tour around the area, visiting quality artisan delicatessens and off-the-beaten-path sights, as well as the famous market itself.

Venture inside some of Paris’ best patisseries to sample exquisite French pastries and chocolates, and head to an iconic wine bar that is known for serving fresh oysters alongside crisp glasses of muscadet wine. Throughout your small-group tour, you’ll enjoy six different food tastings in gourmet shops and at the market.

Marché d’Aligre lies right in the heart of the Bastille district, and is sure to be the highlight of your morning. Consisting of two parts -- a covered area called Marché Beauveau and an open-air square -- the cosmopolitan market is huge and knowing what spots to visit can be tricky. Luckily, your expert guide will be there to show you to the best stalls! You’ll also have time to browse the market independently, shopping for all your gourmet desires.

Before your tour ends, your guide will introduce you to a little-known elevated garden walkway that was created from old train tracks. This gorgeous garden is a real insider’s secret, and you’ll finish your tour feeling like you know the captivating Bastille district just like a food-loving local.

La Bastille es una de nuestras zonas favoritas no turísticas. El mercado es un placer para los sentidos y fuimos a muchos lugares agradables. Caminamos y platicamos muy a gusto con nuestra guía y comimos delicioso. Lo volvería a comprar.

Enjoyed hearing about the history of the Bastille District. The samplings were great. One of the places we stopped at, Bleu. Sucre, had the most divine pastries. The KouignAmman pastry was the best I have ever had in my life. This patisserie is recommended by David Leibovitz. The tour guide was quite charming and quite knowledgeable.
