Using the Metro this was an easy place to get to. Meeting a master chef macaron maker was very interesting, watching him at work left you breathless. I hope the tips he gave will help my macaron baking, he also gave a tasting of the ones he was making that day. Yum!! The young artisan chocolatier, explained how they made the chocolates we tasted. He was also working on the stores Christmas decorations; two Eiffel Towers and an Art Deco Metro sign, an absolute work of art. Great tour.

Fantastic experience we had in the understanding the techniques in making the most delicious and exquisite macaroons and chocolates. It was a shame there was another group who had booked at the same time which made the kitchen areas and shop quite crammed, even though there were only 6 in our group.

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.
