My first time in Paris, I took a bike tour with Fat Tire Bike Tours. My second time, it was all about the food with Paris Treats Food Tours. I met my guide, the lovely American transplant Michele, at the Boulangerie Nature de Pain in the 17th arrondissement where I watched the boulanger create some of most delectable breads and sweets. The tour progressed with stops at a deli, fromagerie, olive oil specialty store, a wine cave and finally the lovely Bulles champagne shop. My tour ended up just being me and Michele but it would be great with a group. Is there a better way to meet new friends than over snacks and wine while exploring French culture? I think not.
