Experience hosted by Edouard

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English and French

What you'll do

We will do a tour of different food shops in the city and an apéritif français at the end. The apéritif traditionally occurs before dinner and consists of a beverage or two and snacks.

After visiting great shops such as french macarons at Caroline's, great italian meats and cheese at Pietro, a great selection of beers at Biere Paul Jack and the best calissons at Paoli, we will finish the tour at the Verre Levé.

I will show you the correct way to “Apéro,” as we French people call it. We will be at one of my favorite wine & food shops in Aix.

We will meet at the Brasserie de la Mairie to start off our with a coffee or any other drink.

Santé!

Edouard, who speaks both French and perfect English, is very knowledgeable about the customs and the area. He seems to know everyone, and that makes the tour even more fun. We bought some calisson (candy-like cookies) for the grandchildren, but saved the delectable pastries from Weibel for ourselves! Then, he took us to Puyritard, a shop with designer chocolates beyond belief. We bought a big box to celebrate all of our birthdays. YUM! Then a chance to try French cheese ... an experience in itself ... before ending at Verre le Ve, where we felt welcomed like old friends. Great casual food and wine in a friendly place. What a great day!!!

Edouard is very kind and personable. He showed me his favorite spots in Aix. I really enjoyed the wine tasting part of the tour.
