Such a great time! Was really nice to do something different and see a side of Paris you wouldn't normally see. We got to taste a few macaroons and chocolates and the chef was brilliant. So much fun!
Fantastic experience. Something different to do in Paris, refreshingly off the normal 'tourist track'. Did this tour as a treat for my 11 year old. She thoroughly enjoyed it and I would highly recommend this tour. She particularly enjoyed the samples!
My husband and I wanted something different to do while visiting Paris so decided to take this tour and loved it, it was informative without being boring and of course the highlight was the tasting of both the chocolates and Macaroons which were to die for.
This was a wonderful experience...Patrick was a delight and so obviously loves what he does that he is infectious. We sampled more than our share YUM and I am in awe of how they turn out those treasures in that tiny space. The chocolates are true works of art and in spite of the fact that we were clearly taking up valuable space we felt very welcomed.

The tour is amazing and really informative, the shop is not on a main street. We went a bit late but we still were able to have chocolate tastings, the tour took over an hour after all the questions from the participants were answered. The Macaroons are INCREDIBLE we ate so many of those :)
Enjoyed the tour. Our guide did an excellent job. We enjoyed tasting the macaroons and chocolates. We have been inspired to make macaroons at home.
Lovely friendly guide. Passionate chef and chocolatier!!
A highly recommended, unique thing to do in Paris! The staff, chefs and the tour guide are all very friendly. We ended up buying chocolates after the tour. Would've been the perfect experience if they provide discounts to tour groups!
A fascinating tour with people so passionate about a creative culinary art! Informative, fun to do, different and some lovely tastings too!
Interesting insight into the creation of these Parisian delights. Staff was very informative and accommodating especially considering their tiny work space. Don't bring a lot of stuff with you and be prepared to wear protective paper clothing over your street clothes.
This was very interesting, but not as worth the money as the other tours I booked for the same price.
The tour was informative and enjoyable. However, the work area was small so the group seemed to be in the way of the workers.
I strongly suggest that you provide a map showing the location of the shop from the Glaciere Metro stop. It was difficult to find and it was no just across from the metro stop.
We did not get to see the macaroons being made as this didn't happen the day we went. We were not informed until the tour commenced which was disappointing. Our guide was lovely and we learnt how the chocolates were made. Had some yummy taste testing.
Unfortunately we did make this tour as we could understand the address when we phoned to find out meeting point. By the time we had our hotel phone it was not enough time for us to get to the meeting point. I am sure this would have been a wonderful tour and sorry we missed it.
Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in this tour. I had already attended the bakery tour, which was much more successful. Not only was the tour overbooked - there were 19 people crammed into a tight space - it was less than informative. The macaroon maker, while pleasant enough, spoke at length in French, which was followed by a brief translation on the part of the Tour guide. I should mention that there were two guides, but the one guide took over. As well, I found I was not clear about the chocolate process. I might also point out that the location was far from central, but I would have overlooked that (as I did for the bakery tour).
