Our tour with Arturo in Paris Le Marais was phenomenal! We enjoyed everything we ate and drank, and Arturo’s commentary on context, history, and the area where we were walking was all interesting and much appreciated. This was our first food tour ever, and we’ll definitely be doing this again. Thank you, Devour Team!!
