Gourmet Walking Tour in Paris

As you meander through neighborhoods with food connoisseur and Paris native Paule Caillat, you'll sample goods at top boulangeries, cheese shops, patisseries, chocolatiers and at an open-air market. Forget about the calories (hopefully you'll walk them off). You can also take cooking classes at her apartment in the city's Marais quarter, with no more than eight students per class, followed by a three-course lunch. Classes include cheese tasting and a discussion about the subtleties of French fromage.

$372 (290 euros): Tour, on hands-on cooking class and three-course lunch -- Promenades Gourmades
