About

Highlights + Hidden Gems
We've curated the essentials for which Paris is beloved + discovered the best, leisure-paced route to the 'must-see' sights (+ hidden gems not found in a guidebook!) Watch the sun set + the best of Paris' sights begin to light up via charming little passages, medieval backstreets, the glittering Seine river…see the Best of Paris in one unforgettable evening!

We created this ride for visiting friends. This carefully thought-out route and tiny, convivial, group allows us to zigzag to more sights, discover more interesting little corners and wonderful sights ~ up close ~ than can be navigated with a huge, commercial, McTour Group.

Our merry band begins in historic district Le Marais, then on to:

the bizarre history of Notre Dame
the Latin Quarter
Tuileries Gardens 
Arc de Triomphe + Champs-Élysées
Napoleon's Tomb + Invalides
Petit Palis + Grand Palais
Alexandre III Bridge
Hôtel de Ville 
French Revolution Square
Marie Antoinette's jail
River Seine waterfront scene
L'Académie française
Love Locks Bridges
the Islands of Paris
Ecole Militaire
Sainte-Chapelle
A memorable glide through inner grounds of the Louvre.
And finally we celebrate at the Eiffel Tower with our new Paris tribe.

We also share with you a few insider spots (some not even known to Parisians) that we'll keep secret for now…

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

About

This is different

Not a 101 'class', this one is snobbery-free place to explore wine, a tasting party with other curious culture-seekers... Between laughs and shared stories, you'll learn why French wine & cheese is considered the best in the world! 


Find out what the big deal is about French Wine and Cheese
We explore 6 different wines, carefully curated by our beloved Parisian 'cave man', including a blind-taste test of one unexpected, mystery wine! Paired with 7 cheeses, some rare and hard to find, even in Paris!

Rarefied surroundings

In the core of hip and creative Paris, the 'Marais' historic district; underground, in a cellar with ZERO BATS, only recently reopened to the public, we dive into Parisian culture, too--you'll discover not only which wines to pair with that amazing cheese, but slices of Paris life and current events.

What starts with 'cheers', becomes a dive into curated flight of rare and unusual cheeses as well as delicious wines; all intriguingly tasty, wild and strong. Apart from a 'safe landing' of pure deliciousness, it ends with new friends from around the globe...

Together, we explore France...by mouth.

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...


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 'guingette,'  (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 don't forget the escargot...
