Stefan and Emily were both fantastic! We know COVID has changed much, but the information, history, food, and conversation were great! They took great care to include my 16 year old in the action. Thank you!

Small group or Private Paris tour: Wine, Cheese & Pastries at the Marais
My tour was fantastic! First of all I was the only person who signed up and Urban Adventures still ran the tour - so it became a private tour. The tour guide Mich was so knowledgeable and interesting. He knew the best places for the 3 different pastries we tasted. We also did a wine and cheese tasting that was terrific. I highly recommend!

Marais The Original District Food & Wine Tasting Tour
Food was a wonderful selection. I think we should have actually sat down each time we ate. Our tour guide was nice, but walked at least 3 stores ahead of me the entire tour. I asked her to slow down so I could hear her, but she never did. Tour did not end where it was supposed to so we had to find the Metro on our own. We finished in 2.5 hours probably due to her walking speed. The other people on the tour did not tip her either due to her speed.
