Discovering Paris testimonials

« Wow. Lydie. Was. Awesome. Can’t say enough how happy we were with this outdoor market experience. (…) It was the highlight of our trip. Lydie was like an old friend that we hadn’t seen in awhile. And that was just after the first 5 minutes. She showed so much patience with the kids and made it fun for all of us. I will never forget the picnic in a hidden urban park with my normally quiet and preoccupied teenagers ignoring their phones to taste and discuss the differences between Trappe Echourgnac and Vieux Comté 24 mois d’affinage cheeses. This was what I hoped to find on our family trip to Paris and thanks to Lydie we did.” Blake – August 2015

“When we were sorting through our pictures from the trip, we both agreed that the market tour with Lydie was the best part of our whole trip! We really had a great time. (…) It was something we will remember for a long time. (…) We are so grateful to Lydie for making it special. (…) Lydie is not only offering a food tour, she is offering memories and that’s very special. (…)” Danielle Johnson, UK – April 2014

“Lydie was beyond exceptional! She is the ultimate host for Paris. She’s incredibly kind and generous, very knowledgeable of this amazing city, and really takes pride in researching the very best experience for her clients.
