With a small group of 5 (perfect size given how small the workspace is), my 11 year old niece loved this visit and we both enjoyed the baguette and croissant takeaway we were given. The wonderful guide had to translate but the pastry chef and baker were very nice to let us watch (and take photos) as they worked and answered all questions. I am working on a post on my travel blog which will have more details and photos from our experience.
I really liked the behind the scene tour, however, my niece found the group of 16 too much in the small space as others blocked her views. I tried to get her up front more. This is one of a few macarons being made in Paris (Laduree and Pierre Hermes have facilities outside of Paris). The pastry chef showed us the process and we watched his assistants hand fill the macarons (they were working on the World Cup colors). The chocolate room was even smaller for the group. We had two guides to split the group and translate but this really needs to be a smaller group to appreciate and enjoy. Originally the guides planned to split the group and do each in their own room and then switch but that changed onsite by the owner it seemed outside of the guides control. The macarons are wonderful as was the chocolate sample. I will have a post and photos from the tour on my travel blog philatravelgirl
