Paris Beer vs Wine Bastille Bites Walking Tour
From US$ 91.80

Immerse yourself in Parisian culture as you visit local wine bars, bistros, and brasseries. Begin at the historic Place de la Bastille, visit residential neighborhood Faubourg Saint-Antoine, and explore the Marché d’Aligre, one of the city’s oldest markets. As you walk, you’ll stop to sample snails, charcuterie, cheeses, and of course, delicious beer and wine.

What to Expect

Join us for the perfect Parisian day! Embark on a delicious adventure with this three-hour Paris tour that stops off at iconic wine bars, bistros and brasseries. Time to get your foodie game face on with some iconic French food, wine and craft beers!

The best things to do in Paris often revolve around food and wine. On this Paris tour, you will try some of the city’s famous specialties, from snails, to cheese or charcuterie, always paired with wine or beer. Your call what goes best together with the food!

You’ll start this tour on Place de la Bastille, the place where the former Bastille prison once stood and where the French Revolution started. Learn about that significant part of French history that still defines us. From here we’ll move to our first stop, a historic bistro that looks identical to how it did a century ago. It’s here that we’ll try our first bite, some iconic French snails with a glass of wine.

We’ll continue your tour in the Faubourg Saint-Antoine, formerly a working class neighbourhood, known for its furniture artisans, blue collar feel and… revolutionary vibe!

 From there, we’ll reach one of Paris’ most quintessential wine bars. At this friendly wine paradise, the bar serves locals and visitors with the same passion. You might still find old barrels where neighbours can just come and fill their empty bottles for a few euros. Here, you’ll learn about the long history of wine in France, while tasting some wine of course! We’ll also pair that wine with some of France’s best charcuterie: delicious pâtés, rillettes and smoked hams.

From here we’ll move to one of Paris’ oldest markets: Marché d’Aligre. Take a moment to wander on your own on this iconic bustling market full of delicious French products. We’ll meet at the cheese seller stall to grab our beautiful platter of French cheese. After a brief explanation about the different cheeses, we’ll head to a famous beer bar that serves over 300 different beers. You’ll get to try three different tasters from three very different kinds of beers produced in France, which we’ll pair with the cheese. Trust us, while wine and cheese gets all the credit, beer and cheese pairings are becoming more common. This is your chance to discover how well French cheese and Parisian craft beers go together!

If you’re still in the mood, we’ll walk back to Bastille using a beautiful but completely unknown elevated former railway line that’s been turned into a park. The route offers great views over the neighborhood. The tour will end back at Bastille Square, unless you prefer to keep partying in the buzzing Aligre area!
