It was great and I would highly recommend the tour, especially for anyone who likes to cook or loves French bread. Very educational but fun at the same time. We took our loaf of breads and croissants to a park, along with some meat and cheese and wine, and had a picnic!! The bakers at the Boulangerie were very pleasant and fun. It's a 10!!

Our guide, Vincent, met us promptly and was very personable. Roman showed us each step of making the delicious breads at the bakery. Then Vincent escorted us down a tight little spiral staircase to show us where the pastries and sandwiches were made. We saw how the dough for the croissants were rolled and how sandwiches from the fresh bread was assembled. While we were watching the croissants being rolled one of the workers handed us a mini cake cut into small pieces to sample...and that cake was to die for!

We all left with a warm, you heard me, warm baguette and a fresh croissant. This tour was informative and well worth the minimal fee we paid.

loved it, very interesting and worthwhile! we were in a group of 8 and found it a bit too tight of quarters as we were all squeezed in. Loved our guide Roberto. Great authentic experience of how a bakery operates and how the pastries/baguettes are made

This was such a great tour and insight of the bakery. Being able to watch them actually make and bake the baguettes and croissants made it more meaningful and then to taste the products afterwards was amazing. The guide was very informative and able to answer all the questions we had.

Great insights into not only "how' but "why" of French bread-making. Our guide, Amélie, was knowledgeable and clearly on great terms with the owner and the bakers. What she did not know, she asked them and they were very open. And, the sample tasting afterwards was phenomenal. The maker of the almond-paste croissant should be put in jail. That recipe is so good, it's a crime!

I really enjoyed the tour. I'd say it was one of the highlights of the trip for me. It happened that I was the only one signed up for the tour so I had the charming guide and bakers all to myself. I am a bread baker (for a market here in Canada) so I was able to "talk bread". I learned a lot about the French methods and have already noticed a difference in my own baking. Thanks a lot especially to my guide who had to translate a lot of technical questions when my own french failed me. Regards.

EXCELLENT! Super Bon. What a great hour+ spent - first watching closely the baguette making process with excellent description by Agathe. Very informative and interesting and fun. Bien fait! Had my hand a creating the cuts on the top of a baguette and was presented with the same one post baking. Then downstairs to the patisserie section. Saw them decorating their pound-cake type "cakes" with lovely fruit and nuts. Described and showed croissant and pain au chocolate in progress. Great taste treats along the way. AND yes, I DID get my baguette and croissant at the end. Good interaction with the bakery employees. Very warm welcome. Would highly recommend.
NOTE: I did NOT receive the email telling me where to go and had to call the partner company.

Our guide, Aget (sp?) was so well-informed. Inside scoop on bread and pastry preparation. It's also nice to get off the beaten track and into a neighborhood. Definitely do this.

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.

Excellent trip, so interesting to see behind the scenes and take away 'your' baguette. Agathe who conducted the tour was delightful

Our bakery tour was short and sweet, about 1 1/2 hours. We saw the inner workings of a small bakery in the 18th arrondissement and it was very interesting. Best of all, they had the best croissants we had eaten the whole 5 days we were in Paris. The baguettes were also excellent and the additional pastries we tried were delicious! We were very happy with our boulangerie experience.

Very cool tour. The samples were amazing. Only issue was the tour company was closed on Sunday and opened late the next day, making it difficult to find out were we needed to be.

This tour was amazing! It was a very interesting and informative look behind the scenes at a French boulangerie. The guide was very skilled in translating questions and answers and the tasting and take home products were delicious and very much a highlight. Our children (7 and 8 years) were made to feel very welcome and the timing of the tour (1 hr in the morning) was perfect.
