Who Is Wendy Lyn?

Wendy Lyn Paris Food Tours

When this professional eater is not traveling, she takes clients on her wildly popular/sell out private Paris food tours. Wendy also also chronicles her international eating & drinking adventures on Instagram, Food & Wine Magazine, Travel + Leisure, Epicurious and multiple food programs on The Travel Channel.  She’s  honoured to have been named one of the Top 10 Food Guides in the World by The Wall Street Journal, “One of the top 6 city food tours in the world” by The Sunday Times, and the “Ultimate Food Insider” and “On a First Name Basis With Every ‘it’ Chef”

What Take A Private Food & Wine Tour?

Spending time with Wendy on one of her private Paris food tours is like being with your fab big sister who gives you the real deal, arming you with tons of local insider knowledge that will enrich your experience in Paris like a local. You’ll spend the time one on one with her, not in an army of strangers in a tour group.

Wendy will personally take you to eat, drink & learn on location in bakeries, cheese shops, hot restaurants & cool local wine bars and loves answering any and all questions during your time together. Day tours are for those interested in bread, cheese & wine – while evening wine bar tours are for those interested in restaurants, food & wine. Afternoon tours on request. 

Clients have not only been raving about how much fun and knowledgable Wendy is, but also loving the ripe runny cheeses, artisan crusty bread slathered in Brittany salted butter, platters of cured ham & charcuterie, bottles of natural wine and meeting chefs & wine makers along the way.

Wendy’s private Paris food tours are served with a heaping spoonful of her casual Southern hospitality — as she teaches about the Paris food culture in a way no guidebook or online research could. Her personality may be larger than life – but she takes teaching and giving you a great day or night out on a private food and wine tour, seriously. She knows that you came a long way to get it right, not waste time nor money.

The tours sell out months in advance. If you don’t see your date available please send Wendy an email to let her know – she’ll squeeze you in if possible.

Rave Reviews:

You’re in for a real treat

She’s dubbed “the insider’s insider,” for her hard-won all-access pass within the international culinary community from working as a PR & Restaurant Consultant for the most notable chefs & restaurants in the world. From conceptualizing restaurants with chefs to launching the first US Michelin Guide – Wendy has been based in Paris for over half her life, globetrotting a staggering 200+ days a year on an airplane getting to the next foreign city for the next project.

Originally from L.A. (Lower Alabama/Florida Panhandle), Wendy is happily grounded now in her favorite food city where her trusted Southern appeal, high-regard for French food & wine and her energetic genuine fun-style, have endeared her to Paris’ top chefs & industry pros who consider her part of their family.

Delivered the way it should be

Forget any trace of a “food tours r us” cookie cutter approach. Wendy’s Paris food tours are served with a heaping spoonful of her casual Southern hospitality — she personally meets each client to teach them about the Paris food culture in a way no guidebook or online research could, by sharing over 20+ years of knowledge and connections. Wendy wants visitors to fall in love with the city’s food scene the way she has. Her personality may be larger than life – but she takes teaching and giving you a great day out, seriously.
