About

We've curated the essentials of Paris and discovered the best, leisure-paced route to many of the 'must-see' sights on the way to a memorable boat cruise along the glittering Seine River, as we toast to the 'City of Lights' with chilly champagne + those French cheeses {and baguette] everyone is making a big deal out of as we regale you with the cool stories behind the sights that Paris is known for…

We created this ride for visiting friends – we would watch the best of Paris' sights sparkle via charming little passages, medieval back streets, the glittering Seine…the Best of Paris in one unforgettable evening!

Because our group is small, we can zigzag to see more sights, discover more little corners than can't be navigated with a megagroup from the big McTour operators!

Our merry band of bikers meets in the protected Historic District of Le Marais, then off we go for a breezy glide to the must-see sights, a memorable ride through through inner grounds of Louvre after crowds have dispersed and, lastly, a relaxing boat cruise.

We pop bottles of bubbly and nibble French cheese + baguette deliciousness on Paris' most-popular open-top tour boat in front of the Notre Dame + Eiffel Tower as Paris sparkles!

Maybe you'll fall in love with Paris (and stay…) too!


Note: a totally private/bespoke version on a smaller boat is available, please message us at hello@curiosity-collective.com and we can arrange the experience of your dreams.

Iconic Montmartre Insiders' Pastries, Wine & Cheese Tour

The Iconic Tastes of Montmartre with a side of History and Culture! See (and taste) unexpected and hidden gems of historic Montmartre with the local raconteurs of the Curiosity Collective.

Have you heard of the legendary, extravagant, Montmartre neighborhood ?   Well, don't eat before because we are about to enjoy Paris' dreamiest little village, by mouth...

In a small group of 8 to zig and zag with a laid-back, wanderlust vibe.

Let's meet near the world's most famous windmill to get to know each other over the Icons of French Tastes..and History. 

We love the madcap stories behind picturesque Montmartre--the artists and poets, the singers and the tragedies, so join me as we follow in the footsteps of Edith Piaf, Renoir, Picasso, Charlie Chaplin, Monet, Cezanne, Degas, Van Gogh, other notables as we check out their old haunts, see where they found inspiration (or just a glass of wine!) ...find scenes from famous paintings. Then explore the Sacre Coeur  Basilica.

We revel in the bohemian atmosphere and taste the our way through legendary French tastes and learn about memorable stories like the birth of the 'Can-Can' dance...see one of the few sites in Paris where wine grapes are grown, and then taste the Montmartre vintage with cheese and award-winning baguette. 

From the Belle Epoque to daring new flavors from upstart bakers, to a local 'guinguette,'  (historic bar) we will explore one of Paris' most fascinating, if at times scandalous, little neighborhoods and all the treasures it holds. You'll be prepared to enjoy Montmartre like a local ;) with plenty of pastries, wine, crepes, and charcuterie. And some scandal and spice...

Let's go behind the scenes with Paris' Best Croissant (according to Vogue Magazine) and learn from Paris' baking rock star Anthony Courteille.

Are you the next 'rising' baking star? Let's find out! And let's have fun, tasting (& learning from...) the best whilst doing it!

In the uberhip le Marais neighborhood, we go behind the scenes in Paris' most buzzed-about boulangerie-patisserie - SAIN Boulangerie.

We then commence a private workshop where we meet Anthony Courteille--Michelin Guide-listed chef & top Paris boulanger.

In his bakery we roll up our sleeves and, under his expert guidance, we will learn an overview of the techniques--hands on--of how to make delicious croissants, pain au chocolats, [and one surprise, seasonal, pastry] ourselves! Using top quality ingredients + employing the secrets of the best Parisian bakers-- we will make breakfast for the next day!

While our creations bake, we enjoy a tasting of Anthony's delicious [and renown] pastries and coffee.

Then we leave with memories of clocking a shift in a renown Parisian bakery -- and a bag to take away, of deliciousness for the next morning's breakfast (or an afternoon snack, we don't judge...)
