Tours in France

Mealtimes are sacred in France, a phenomenon that’s driven by a deep respect for the local gastronomy. Bakers, cheesemakers, wine producers, and everyone in between take great pride in their work, and the results are evident from the first bite (or sip).  

No matter what else your French itinerary consists of, be sure to take a moment (or several) to interact with the local cuisine. From shopping for fresh produce at the market and chatting with the vendors, to sitting down and sharing a long meal in good company, there’s no better way to immerse yourself in the local culture.
