This tour was one of our highlights!! A lovely afternoon walk - not at all strenuous - stopping for bits of Paris history, as well as getting to sample delightful delicacies from local shops. It's been a week since our tour and I can still taste the cup of wonderfully smooth hot chocolate which ended our tour. My advice - jot a few notes as you go along, because before you know it - it all begins to run around in your head!! And if it tastes good, be ready to purchase it right then!

We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about chocolate and pastries. We were able to sample different types of chocolate and pastry and learn about the different processes that are used to make chocolate. Highly recommend!

What a great time we had! Alexandra guided us through several candy stores, bakeries, and pastry shops. We had samples from all of the places we visited, and were they good! I wish we had done this tour our first day in Paris rather than the second to last day, since we went back to some of the places we visited later that day and then again the day after. One place specialized in "macarons" and we each picked one---I had a "rose" macaron, and now, and this is completely true, I KNOW WHAT A ROSE TASTES LIKE. And it tastes unique and wonderful. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was one of the best I have ever taken, and I have taken a lot of tours throughout Europe with Viator in countless cities. This is a local tour where a Parisian expert walks you through St. Germain-des-Pres and introduces you to high-end chocolatiers as well as boulangeres. I had no idea we would sample as many items as we did and then discuss the various awards the owners had and how they differ from each other. This is no ordinary tour; it is quite extraordinary. Our guide, Myriam, was superb. Our entire group agreed she was an amazing teacher who knew her food and shared her expertise. All of us were so thrilled, every one in our group reached for tip money immediately following the tour and were pleased to give it to her. If you are a foodie or a person who just wants to learn the area and about how passionate the French are for quality ingredients, take this tour. It will be a highlight of your trip. It is also a wonderful way to peel back a layer into how the Parisians live. I can't say enough good about it.

This tour was wonderful, and it was our guide that made it so. It was my daughters 16th birthday and our guide gave her a gift she will cherish forever. From our initial introduction to our final good by, our guide made us feel like welcomed guests in one of the greatest cities in the world. The tour was very informative as well as mouth watering. We tasted the creations of Pierre Herme, Patrick Roger, Poilane, and others. At each stop, our guide provided us with the perfect blend of historical and practical information about the delights we sampled. Between stops, we were given a brief history of the streets and neighborhoods we passed through. The tour was awesome, make it a part of your trip.

The tour was surprisingly the best tour for the value. I am not a huge chocolate and pastry person, but my fellow traveler was so we went together. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge about the history and culture of the region.

Within a group of 6, Roberto our guide, took us on a tour of the local Boulangerie, Patisseres and Chocolateries, where we received some fabulous samples and fun and interesting commentary. The tour lasted approx. 2.5 hours which was taken at a leisurely pace. I give Roberto and his tour 10 out of 10 - highly recommended and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in Paris!
