Your baker and guide's passion for French baking comes through.

What a delightful experience! We learned a lot and it was a unique opportunity to be so close to so many baguettes in the bread kitchen and to so many pastries in the patisserie kitchen. Highly recommend this 1 hour snapshot of real Paris.

Wonderful. Loved this. Making croissants to take away in a traditional Paris bakery was terrific. Loads of interesting facts about the artisan industry and the skills of the bakers. What a shame England doesn't have an artisan baking tradition like this!!

Perfect, small tour, just three of us. Lots of information packed into an hour, but not rushed. The baguette and croissant at the end were super tasty! Would recommend if looking for a simple tour.

This was a really great tour choice for us and we highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in gaining a hands-on experience into a typical Parisan Boulangerie ! Always wondered how they make those delicious baguettes,croissants and other yummy bake goods. I was able to take a picture of the actual recipe for the baguettes they bake at this bakery. Book this tour you will not be disappointed.
