EXPERIENCE THE TRADITION

of France’s famed cuisine

French cuisine is renowned the world over and has inspired many Western cuisines, so much so that in 2010 French gastronomy was added by UNESCO to its lists of the world’s “intangible cultural heritage”. Of course, cheese and wine are a major part of any French culinary experience, but our tours delve much deeper into the traditions and stories behind some of the most popular and famed French dishes. Choose between gourmet walking tours, market tours and cooking classes in various regions of France and spend a half day or full day enjoying the sights, scents, and flavors of France. For those looking to extend the experience, we offer 7 day tours from Bordeaux to San Sebastian, which includes a tour of Grand Crus wineries, private tastings and sampling the delicious cuisine found along the way.

Our assurance is that all our tours are personal and are conducted by professional and enthusiastic English speaking driver / guides. Transportation is in comfortable and fully equipped compact minivans. Take one of our culinary Ophorus tours and sample the fresh produce, delicious flavors and unique combinations of this well-established French art form.
