Guided Paris Tour with a Cooking Class
Enjoy a complete guided Paris city tour (a half-day of seeing the "highlights" or a full day with museums), and for a change of pace at lunch, enjoy an authentic French cooking class!
Over the course of a single day in Paris, you'll travel through 2,000 years of history and archictecture: from medieval times (Musée de Cluny), to Classical Paris (Place Vendôme, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde), WWI archictecture (Hotel Lutetia, Il de la Cité, Cathedral de Notre Dame), the great works of Baron Haussman (Opera Garnier), and the achievements of the 19th century and beyond (Eiffell Tower, Musée d'Orsay, Sacré-Coeur, Pompidou Center, the Louvre).
At lunchtime, whip up something delicioius in a relaxed and fun atmosphere at a famous French cooking school! You'll learn a new dish and get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. The class begins at 12:30 sharp in a beautiful mansion in the 8th arrondissement. Grab your aprons, wash up and take your place in a state-of-the-art kitchen, ready to make the "dish of the day." Fun for even beginners, the class is mean to provide a break for doing something different during the day, and lasts about 30 min. The chefs are friendly, professional and will teach you some good techniques along the way (and they serve dessert). Add wine, coffee and some hearty laughs, and you'll be refreshed in no time.
