Based at a 4* hotel near the Eiffel Tower, you will spend your first evening taking in the spectacular panoramic views of the French capital from the Montparnasse Tower, with a glass of fizz in hand. The next day, you will spend the morning at a private workshop at Le Cordon Bleu, where a classically-trained chef will teach you to cook a Mediterranean-themed dish. Once you have tasted your creations, you will be given a treat-filled goodie bag to take home.

In the afternoon, you will join the Tour Manager for a short 'flavours of Paris' tour before a late afternoon champagne tasting at Dilettantes, a Maison du Champagne with a 17th century cellar in Paris' Latin quarter. You will taste three different champagnes, accompanied by three speciality cheeses.
