Food tours used to bring me out in a cold sweat. Our first-ever walking food tour was with Devour Seville in 2015, and I remember Marley, our 10-year-old, refusing to eat so many things I wasn’t sure if we would ever go on another again.

I was so worried that Jamie, our guide, would be upset or the stallholders. I was so very wrong. Devour really is a family-friendly option for food tours in Europe

Fast-forward 6 years, and again, we found ourselves on a Devour food tour in Paris, but this time, Marley was saying yes to as much as she could. Thankfully, our guide Jess was ready for her just in case she was in a ‘no’ mood for local French food.

Can you go on a Devour Paris Food Tour?

One thing about the Devour tours is that they are suitable for everyone: singles, couples, families with old or young kids. It doesn’t matter; they make it work and make everyone feel amazing when they are on the food tour. Our first food tour with them was six years ago, and at the time, Marley was five.

The age of children on the tours is not an issue, and a quick mention of things your kids might not eat to your fantastic guide will make for an unforgettable travel experience. There is always an alternative, there is always an option, and there are always smiles at the end of these award-winning tours. For us, Devour Paris was so much fun and the best kid-friendly food tour Paris has to offer.

Where do you go on the best Paris food tour?

The Paris Devour food tour is located in the Marais, the 4th arrondissement district of Paris. It is a beautiful district you will see in Paris guidebooks and a lively one at that. Your guide’s local knowledge will take you to some of the coolest restaurants in Paris right now, and Devour’s insider access will take you to authentic eateries.

What food will I have on the Devour Food Tour?

Jess will guide you through the Le Marais district to some of the best places to eat French Food in Paris. The small group walking tour provides a unique experience and is a great way to spend three hours.

You will not walk away hungry, I can assure you, as you fill up on some of the most incredible food from family-run businesses in the French capital. What tour in Paris would be complete without some wine tasting? You will get to drink wine, some small amounts (parents only), as part of the walking tour.

*We have decided not to include the names and exact things you will have on the tour as we don’t want to spoil it all for you! But Jess will take you on a Paris food tour to see things like what to eat for breakfast in Paris, where to get the best Paris street food, and where to eat in Paris with family. You can be assured that you will be in for an unforgettable experience in the best areas to eat in Paris.

What if I have allergies?

The team at Devour Tours are extremely cautious when it comes to allergies. If you let Jess know when you make your booking and double-check with her when you first meet, you should have no problems. Devour Tours will do its best to accommodate your needs and favourite tastes during the tour

Is this a walking tour?

Yes, but there are plenty of rests in between the shops, and if you need to sit, Jess will make sure that you have plenty of time. It is an easy walk and not a strenuous walk. Plus, it has to be one of the best Paris walking tours because you get to sample some of the best French food along the way!

What is special about Devour Tours?

For me, it is the fact that they can accommodate anyone. They not only accommodate you but also look after you on the tour. The groups are intimate, not huge, so you never feel lost in the crowd.

Devour Tours is kid-friendly

Both of my girls thoroughly love going on the tours with all the guides we have had.

They now have the confidence to say yes or no to food. If they do say no they are encouraged but not forced to try it. Most of the time they will try and at the times they have said no there has always been something else they can try.

The stallholders and food shop owners always want to encourage them too and talk to them like they are just as important as the adults on the tour which we appreciate! Devour is the first choice for Paris food tours for families.

The stallholders and their unique French delicacies

The stallholders are also another reason why Devour Food tours stand out to me. I love the stories that they have behind their shops, stall or their great food and I love learning about it. They all have a personality that goes into their food and one that shines in the food they develop.

No stall is the same, and no story is the same, which I love. History is wound easily into the le Marais tour, and you are learning while eating delicious food for a few hours on this excellent food tour.

All the stallholders have pride in their food because it’s not just good; it is magnificent, and they know it. They put their best foot forward for the guided tour.

Their pride in their food and business is an added element many stores can lack. It sets them apart as excellence in their fields
