FOODIES ON THE LOOSE!
A half-day walking tour in St. Remy for food lovers of all ages.
St. Remy is filled with artisinal food producers, working in traditional ways, keeping local food traditions alive. And luckily many of them have shops and workshops, right in the heart of the village. To give you a taste of what they offer, we're now offering our most-popular full-day tour--St. Remy for Foodies--in an additional way. You can still book an artisan food tour privately any day you like--meaning you and your peeps have the driver/guide to yourself for the day. (That day includes visits to an olive mill, a goat farm/cheesemaker, a two-hour a baking class and a lovely lunch.) But now just about every morning year round, we're offering an edited version of the full-day tour...on foot...for mixed groups. This means you'll be paired with other travelers (tours are ten people max) for a very-full, very-filling, very-fun morning!
Your guide will rendezvous with you at the Tourist Office at 9:30 or 10 am. And then we hit the rue running! Staying in the heart of the village (with minimal walking) we’ll roam from shop to shop, tasting homemade chocolates, cookies, nougat, flavored salts, honey, olive oils, tapenades, confitures, calisson, candied fruit and more. To keep our energy up, we may stop for a quick coffee...with a couple delicious just-made macarons on the side. Then we'll probably move on to a cheese tasting...either in the cave of a maitre fromagier or at the goat farm/cheesemaker...enjoyed with a glass of wine.
Along the way you'll get a taste of the rich history of this cobblestoned village ...and a glimpse into real local life from your charming and knowledgeable guide. The tour ends around noon and we'll happily recommend a restaurant for lunch.
Our Foodies on the Loose Tour costs 75€ per person for adults, 50€ for ages 12 to 18 and 30€ for kids 6 to 12. Kids under 6 are welcome to join the party free, as long as they're fearless and willing to taste! If you're solo and we don't have others on the tour, we'll be delighted to tour you for 150€. Available on demand, year round, whatever day you prefer.
