Christine was the most eccentric, wonderful, passionate guide we could have dreamt of! We had tons of fun and learnt a lot, not just about chocolate and pastries, but history both in relation to food and otherwise. My mum and I were the only ones who signed up so it ended up being a private tour and as we all got carried away talking and laughing, the tour was extended. It was a well-planned gastronomic adventure and we had traditional chocolates, innovative new chocolates, macaroons, vienoisseries, pastries, macaroons, drinking chocolate etc.! It was pretty crazy. Highly recommended if you can afford it. It didn't feel touristy, more like a real novelty, the haute couture of food even my Parisian friends didn't know about some of the names whose creations we tasted. Thank you Christine!
Amazing experience! Guide was phenomenal! Wouldn't recommend this tour for diabetics, though--we were spoiled with so many decadent samples!!!
Excellent, small group of 4 people. Great sampling of several different chocolate makers. Our guide gave historical information as we travelled from shop to shop, which was enjoyable.
David was fantastic. We went to the best chocolate houses. Great Bread and toffee all wrapped up in a walking history lesson.
Our guide was great!. took us to amazing shops that we would have never found on our own. We have a new favorite macaron shop and went back 2 more times. I would highly recommend this tour. Great for our children as well.
How can you describe the taste but by comparison. Ghirardelli on my back porch, I have become accustom to good chocolate, fabulous breads, fantastic foods, and more than palatable vintages. To have missed this would not have left me short of any want. What it did was to sharpen the desire for a craft long standing in taste but founded in education for the product beyond your thought. Rich, smooth, delectable. A must for the lover of finer tastes. Macaroons you have never thought existed.
The variety of locations was good, and with it being Christmas it felt like we had a special opportunity to experience Christmas in Paris this way.
Informative and fun afternoon with the lovely Christine, sampling delightful chocolates and pastries. Learned a lot about food and history during our walk.
Highlight of the trip, David showed great and genuine interest in every place he brought us and gave great snipets of historical facts of Paris along our walk.
Wonderful! Our guide Dave took us on a walk that included shops making and selling the most delicious chocolates and pastries and macarons. He gave us the history of the area and made the afternoon a delight!
Absolutely fabulous tour. Great guide and so informative. Lots of fun foe us and our 15 year old daughter and delicious tastes of chocolate and macarons. Highly recommend
Our guide Erin was extremely helpful and a wonderful guide!
We met in front of our first chocolate stop there were 6 chocolate shops, and 2 bed shops on this tour... all AMAZING!!! The whole tour is all walking, but the stops are close enough together that it doesn't feel like you are walking the whole time.
We enjoyed 2 - 4 chocolates at each stop, and a full baguette and croissant at our bread stops.
Each stop was more yummy than the last but our favorite chocolate was at Patrick Roger!
Our tour was supposed to be 2 hours, but our guide gave us an extra hour since we were the only ones on the whole tour We went right after the terror attack.
Erin was able to help us after the tour find a wonderful chees shop to buy some great items for our dinner that night to go with all of our left over bread and chocolate for dessert.
Over all: One of the most fun tours we did on our whole trip!
We had the unfortunate situation where we arrived in Paris the day of the terrorist attacks in November. Our tour operator contacted us the morning of our tour and checked in to make sure things were ok and wondered if we were still wanting to continue.
We were very excited to get on our tour, and we are glad that we did. Our guide Josie was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and we had a great time. The food was fantastic. Her knowledge of cooking really helped the tour.
When we return with our daughters, we will ask for her again.
This was the highlight of our trip in addition to tasting the best bread and chocolates. We learned a lot about bread and chocolate on this tour. Our tour guide was very helpful and informative. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves chocolate and pastry. It would be a good idea to have only a light lunch if you are doing the afternoon tour as you will have plenty to eat.
Friendly tour guide. It was a very enjoyable and informative tour. Very highly recommended.
Arielle was simply fantastic. I was the only student on the tour, so we had plenty of time to chat and discuss everything along the way. Her English was perfect and she is obviously incredibly knowledgeable on the history of Chocolate and Pasties in Paris and was able to deftly explain the intricacies of the chocolate making process, the difference between the types of cacao etc. She was also simply pleasant to be around and a fun guide. The tour itself and the chocolate was of course divine, all of the stops had a unique element and the samples I tried were all 10/10 wonderful. I can't recommend the tour and Arielle enough!
Two thumbs way up. A very knowledgeable tour guide and great places we visited.mand the chocolate was to die for!
Our guide David was awesome, he gave us tons of information about the city and brought us to 7 different places to try eclairs, chocolates, macaroons, pastry, salted butter caramel, my Favourite was the chou! Three hours flew past in a whizz! Highly recommended!!!

Excellent tour! Our guide is so knowledgeable with the history of Paris Architecture and Food. This is the second time I have taken this tour in 5 years. It will now disappoint :-
Stefan was outstanding. We had an excellent time!!! He was punctual, friendly, generous and informative. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Loved this tour. Our guide was charming and there wasn't too many people. I would recommend this to anyone. The stops on the tour were great and we were able to experience a wide variety of places. It didn't feel rushed and the neighborhood is lovely.
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of the bakeries and candy shops. Our guide was informative about the neighborhood and the foods we tried. We recommend this tour!!
Fantastic tour of beautiful chocolate and pastry shops. Easy walking and good guide who seemed well received by the shop managers. Well worth the effort, although maybe 30 minute too long. The amount of rich chocolate you taste does mean that you have to either love chocolate or take a doggy bag for some of the tastings!
