French gastronomy is listed as an Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO, and a food technology school trip to Paris is the best way for your students to discover this!

A food technology school trip to Paris offers a great choice of visits. Some of the most popular among our groups include a demonstration at a local boulangerie, a visit to the huge Rungis Wholesale Market and a cookery demonstration at a catering school.

Paris is the perfect city for your students to expand their ideas and improve their designing and making skills. And if they weren’t passionate about food beforehand, they certainly will be when they return! You can also choose to turn this into a cross-curricular school trip to Paris, by joining forces with the art, science, history, French, business studies or fashion departments at your school.

Travel memories are everlasting, and I love having a job where I can make school trips useful and interesting at the same time, taking groups to places that they otherwise might not get to visit. – Judit Eleod Tour Consultant

Don't take our word for it …

Paris was a wonderful destination, particularly for older students. The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and there were loads of things to do and amazing sites to see. It was not too big or overwhelming as I thought it may be and felt manageable. — Westminster Academy , January 2019
