Wonderful tour! A knowledgeable guide who told many back stories. Also flexible in choice of treat. SO when the standard was two macaroons, I was allowed to choose a mini-éclair instead. The guide also offered some interesting tidbits about the neighborhood. I highly recommend it.
Wonderful tour... too much walking with nowhere to sit during tastings. They had great samples and the tour guide, Godfried, was very well informed on the history and method of making of chocolate and bread.
Ate way too much chocolate went to a wonderful selection of chocolate shops. Our guide was informative as she explained the history of chocolate, and the history of the various chocolate and pastry shops we visited. Great tour!
Ricardo, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and charming. He made the tour a pleasure.
This was a wonderful tour. Verell (I hope that is how you spell your name) our guide, was excellent. As well as taking us around and tasting all these lovely treats, she took us to unexpected parts of Paris and explained their history. She was a very friendly and helpful guide. This tour was a big hit with our family.
It was a great tour! In addition to eating lots of wonderful chocolates, our tour guide spoke about the history of the area.
Guide, Stefan, was amazing. Made a wonderful tour even better!
My daughter and myself really enjoyed this tour. I am a Food and Hospitality teacher in NZ and we are both real 'foodies', so we were looking forward to this tour very much, and it did live up to our expectations! Every place we visited was special and had products of very high quality.
The tour was conducted at a leisurely pace and the bonus was our guide, Gotfried, who added so much to the tour with his art and history knowledge of the city. Thank you so much for a memorable experience!
This was another fabulous excursion with a very knowledgeable guide names Noela. We visited many beautiful shops and tasted exquisite chocolates and pastries !!! Just wish my husband had been with me. He would have loved it too !
Our guide, Roberto, went out of his way to provide us with a wonderful experience taking extra time to bring us back to a shop that was closed earlier in the day. He also provided us with additional information on food as part of the French lifestyle showing us other types of food at local markets. Although chocolate in several versions was the star of the tour, he ended by taking us to a wonderful tea store for a little cup of delicious green tea to cap the experience. After the tour we went back to several stores to purchase gifts for friends and family as well as for ourselves. We would willingly take the tour again.
Great guide, although couldn't face anything sweet for a while.
Would recommend it for serious sweet lovers.
Really worthwhile experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We would never have found these wonderful stores without the guide.
Had a great time! Thought it might be an mildly interesting way to pass a few hours and see some parts of Paris I was unfamiliar with. This tour turned out to be so much more interesting than expected! My husband, who came along begrudgingly, became the "star pupil" and ended up quizzing our guide more than anyone! Our group was small, only 3 people, plus our lovely guide Caroline. As well as all the fascinating information of the various chocolate houses we also had a local history lesson as we walked various streets and passed various points of interest. A great afternoon.
This tour was absolutely FABULOUS!! The tour was so much more that I had expected. Our tour guide brought us to many cool places and had such an extensive knowledge of the city. The chocolate samples were exquisite....and I loved that in most of the chocolate shops we visited we were each allowed to pick items that we were interested in. I would highly recommend this tour! In fact, if I ever return to Paris.....this will be on my list again!!
This tour was fantastic!!! Gottfried was one of the best tour guides EVER, no accent to deal with and so knowledgeable. He told us about the food but also gave a ton of info about the history of the area and its many landmarks. Having only 3 on the tour was a definite plus. I would rate this tour a 10. Oh and the food choices were great, not too much but just enough to be decadent but not sinful. YUM!
Excellent chocolate and outstanding guide. A must do for chocolate lovers. The small amount of rain we had made the chocolate taste better. And the last stop was a perfect choice. I now am on a new level of chocolate expertise. The best paArt is you can buy chocolates at each stop! The tour is well worth the money and we left on time. We had a small. Group of 7 due to the size of the shops. Absolutely a hidden gem and I would do it again. Caroline was an outstanding guide.
Wow, lucky we were walking! The chocolate and pastries were to die for and our guide explained some really interesting facts about the food we ate. Never would have found these shops on our own. A really good small group tour!
This was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon! We had a group of 6 and Adeline, our guide was great! Her energy, personality and knowledge were not to be beat. We visited 6 or 7 shops and sampled more than you could eat. But, we ate it all anyway!!!
The distance was manageable and all shops were lovely and unique in their own way. We returned to a few favorites before we left Paris.
My sister and I really enjoyed this. It was a highlight of our trip! Merci, merci!
This tour was absolutely amazing. It ended up being just myself and my girlfriend on the tour of the best chocolate and pastry shops in Paris. Our guide was very knowledgeable, very friendly and spoke perfect English He even took us on a side tour to the chruch in the DaVinci code Highly recommended
Excellent! Our guide Goetfried was superb and explained everything we could possibly want to know about French chocolate and the history of French pastries. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in tasting some of Paris' finest. Whether gourmand or a foodie, this tour is a must do!
Great!! Highly recommend for anyone with a sweet tooth. Not only do you get to sample lots of yummy chocolates/pastry, your tour guide provides some history and interesting tidbits about the stores and surrounding area. Had a lovely time.
A terrific Professor from the University took we 5 on a fabulous walk to 4 Chocolate Shops and the oldest pastry shop in Paris. he was so full of knowledge about his city that we got a bonus of Architectural and even St. Sulspice Church info and tour! The excellent chocolate was addicting……A must do walk! Everyone enjoyed so much!
We had the most enjoyable afternoon on this tour. We were in Paris with 2 teenagers. The guide was very informative and engaging. The food stops were excellent and the guide was well versed on the history of the area. Which was great because we were only in Paris for such a short time so tasting good quality chocolates and pastry in a small group of 5 and getting a history lesson exceeded our expectations.
My husband and I took this tour on Sept. 19th, 2014. It was great! Roberto was a wonderful guide, both knowledgeable and interesting. The pace was perfect--we covered a lot of ground and ate a lot of great chocolate and pastry but didn't move at an unmanageable rate. Our group consisted of five people plus Roberto, which was small enough that we were all able to hear what was said, ask questions etc. This was really a great trip and I don't hesitate to recommend it. I would take another of Viator's tours in the future. As others have said--come hungry! We skipped breakfast and lunch and were glad we did. ;-)
