Full of pomp and elegance and never shy on romance, it’s easy to see why Paris ranks high on so many travellers’ wish lists. However, whilst a trip to the Louvre to soak up some culture and a spot of sightseeing from the Eiffel Tower is a must, here are five top tours you can book through Klook that are designed to deliver a quintessential Parisian experience…
Paris has always been fashion-forward with many big-name brands such as Chanel, Hermes, and Louis Vuitton rooted in the city. If you’re looking to pick up some chic outfits, then head to the famous Galeries Lafayette department store. There, not only can you shop the biggest names in both the French and international fashion industries, but also see a catwalk of all the must-have items of the season. The shopping experience package also comes with free deliveries of your purchases to your hotel or wherever you’re staying in the city.
Perfect for aspiring chefs, a half-day cooking class not only teaches how to cook authentic French cuisine but also places a big emphasis on local experiences. You will meet with your instructor at their flat in Paris’ city centre, visit a typical French market to find the best stalls for fresh local produce, and co-create a three-course lunch in the friendly ambience of a small group. You can then enjoy the fruits of your labour with a meal after class, paired with a delicious glass of wine and copies of the recipes you made to take home.
Flamboyant colours, a dazzle of rhinestones, and sparkling stage sets, plus a troupe of talented artists and dancers; the Moulin Rouge is the most famous cabaret in the world. However, with more than 60-million attendees flocking to enjoy the show every year, it makes sense to book your tickets in advance so all that’s left is to look forward to the revue, sip Champagne, and lose yourself in the splendour of the show.
With a little help from DUCLOT La Cave and guidance from its expert sommeliers, you can learn all about the different types of French wine and Champagne at Klook’s French Wine Tasting Experience in Galeries Lafayette Paris. This experience will present six carefully selected vintages for you to try, teaching you how to appreciate each one’s aroma, the specific vocabulary to use, the correct techniques for enjoying wine, and how to differentiate between the various kinds.
Perfumeries are big business in Paris, so for anyone who’s wanted to create their very own signature scent, the Fragonard Perfume Workshop is the perfect option for you! During this class, you’ll be guided through the complex processes that go into making fragrances by an expert perfumer (affectionately nicknamed ‘Le Nez’ - the nose - in France). After the lesson, you’ll be given all the necessary materials for crafting your own 100ml bottle of Eau de Cologne and as a bonus, you’ll get to go on a short tour of the Perfume Museum to learn about its different products.
All these tours and more are available through Klook, which offers travellers a simple way to connect with amazing activities, attractions and things to do wherever you travel.
