Nicknamed ‘the Picasso of Pastry,’ Pierre Hermé is known across the world for the extravagant and exciting ingredients he uses. Discover extraordinary flavors such as olive oil and vanilla or passion fruit with milk chocolate, and hear how Hermé’s passion for pastry has revolutionized the art of macaron-making.
Continue onward with a guide to the Gérard Mulot bakery. Here, discover a visual feast of pastries, cakes, macarons, tarts, petit-fours and chocolates. The pastries here are prepared and displayed to perfection, and are widely considered to be among the finest in France. Sample Mulot’s signature macaron, the ‘Muscovado,’ and enjoy its subtle licorice undertones.

Finally, visit Pierre Cluizel and Sylvie Valette's delightful shop and restaurant, Un Dimanche à Paris, and marvel at their intricate creations. Sample their tarte tropezienne or indulge yourself in their selection of macarons.
After 2.5 hours exploring some of Paris’ finest patisseries, your tour will come to an end.
Six different shops were visited during this tour. I was not overly familiar with that area of Paris, so walking from Pierre Herme to our final location, Un Dimanche a Paris, was a fun experience. We learned about the different styles of macarons from the traditional filled with ganache to the "Tropezienne" with its delicious cream filling. Our guide, Eve, was quite knowledgeable, and I think that people who enjoy pastries, macarons, and chocolates would enjoy this tour.
Eve was a great tour guide. Excellent tour. Great way to see some of Paris neighborhoods. Gratis Macaron tastings was a special treat.
