Whether you like to shop, stroll, indulge or relax, it truly is a breathtaking community with warm hospitality. Paris is known as "The Prettiest Little Town in Canada."

Lovely way to stay local during Covid and explore a small community in an intimate way! My husband and I took the trip at our own pace and enjoyed meeting each vendor and learning about why they’re in Paris! The stops were well curated with food and shopping. Would highly recommend!

The experience with Spicy Jan was extraordinary because of the connection that Jan obviously has with the merchants in Paris. Every place we were direced to go on our tour had an enthusiastic and very knowledgeable vendor who made us excited about their art, their food, their crafts, whatever it was that they were both making and selling. It was an experience that thoroughly entertained our group ranging from 15 to over 60 years old. And while the tour was billed as noon to 3.30, we returned to several places because they were so interesting. We didn't ger back to our bnb for till two hours later. Paris is a great place to buy one of a kind presents. Be warned! You might have way too much fun!

Amazing value and a great way to experience Paris! I would highly recommend this experience. Every stop on the tour felt warm and welcoming. There was more food than you could possibly eat. All in all it was a great way to experience the city.

An absolutely perfectly executed food tour. Janice seemingly knows every person walking the street and has a real kinship with every business owner in Paris. Janice made us feel welcome from the start with her warm and inviting personality. Her energy and passion are evident from the second you meet. This is a tour you won't regret taking, Janice takes her business seriously and is passionate about what she does. The type of person, activity, entrepreneurs, and small-town you feel good about supporting.

Spicy Jam is an absolute expert in all things Paris and the people we met through her all showed lots of love and appreciation for what she does. A truly unique experience that we could have never done on our own. Janice showed us the architecture and beauty of Paris, and we met the amazing women and mean entrepreneurs behind such a magical place. We couldn’t be more grateful to Janice and the people of Paris for such a memorable experience!
