We highly recommend this tour! Our tour was of an authentic Boulangerie near Montparnasse. This boulangerie demonstrated baking techiniques for a variety of baguettes, breads, rolls, croissants, as well as pizzas, quiche, ham and cheese rolls and sweet pastry's éclairs, macaroons, cookies and glazed petite pastry's. We started the tour with our bi-lingual guide on the first floor where the baker demonstrated making all types of savory breads, croissants and how a baguette is rolled out and shaped. As the baker worked, our tour group had the opportunity to ask questions with the guide asking our questions in French to the baker. The baker was happy to answer questions and would often go out of his way to add additional information that could help us understand the preparation or baking methods of the breads. After spending time learning about breads, our guide took us downstairs to watch the pastry bakers at work. We learned the pastry's are made downstairs as it is cooler and upstairs gets too hot and can cause the delicate pastry's to not rise. What stood out about this tour was being able to watch the bakers first hand as they created such special breads and pastry's. I am not a foodie, but would highly recommend this tour to a friend. It was educational and fun to watch the bakers move quickly, efficiently and almost harmoniously create the golden breads and glazed pastry's. An unexpected touch was that after the tour, each person in our group received a fresh baked baguette and a pastry! One helpful hint is to wear comfortable shoes. You will be standing for the entire tour and there is a very narrow staircase to go downstairs to see the pastry bakers.

What a wonderful hour of information! We learned about making baguettes, pastries and each took home a baguette and croissant! Our tour guide was amazing and knew so much about the process of baking. We were incredibly impressed and highly recommend this tour.

Great to see something real in action, guide did a great job. Doesn't hurt that they give you amazing bread on the way out : Make sure you buy some additional lunch and pastry, it's amazing.

Fantastic! Very informative and enthusiastic tour guide, loved the hands on aspect. Only complaint is that we were under the impression each person would receive a baguette, not one for our group of four.

We loved this tour that got us 'in the back' of the boulangerie! We took this at the beginning of our trip, the knowledge made it fun as we went into a 'few' others during or time in France.

It was great. The tour guide was friendly, smiley and warm. We got to the watch the bread be made and take home a baguette. We also got to see the inner workings of pastries - -chocolate croissants! Would recommend this to anyone for a quick peek into the world of bakeries and some history too e.g. bakers cannot go on strike.

Very informative and enjoyable ! Our children had a go at rolling their own baguettes and found the experience worthwhile and engaging. They had lots of questions for the staff who answered them knowledgeably and with great patience. We all enjoyed sampling the cakes downstairs and our goody bags of baguettes and croissants kept us going for a couple of days.
Would definitely recommend .

The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us great information and insight into the methods of bread baking as well as the history of bread making in France. Really great experience. They also let you sample different types of breads they make and you leave with a baguette and croissant

It was great and I would highly recommend the tour, especially for anyone who likes to cook or loves French bread. Very educational but fun at the same time. We took our loaf of breads and croissants to a park, along with some meat and cheese and wine, and had a picnic!! The bakers at the Boulangerie were very pleasant and fun. It's a 10!!

Our guide, Vincent, met us promptly and was very personable. Roman showed us each step of making the delicious breads at the bakery. Then Vincent escorted us down a tight little spiral staircase to show us where the pastries and sandwiches were made. We saw how the dough for the croissants were rolled and how sandwiches from the fresh bread was assembled. While we were watching the croissants being rolled one of the workers handed us a mini cake cut into small pieces to sample...and that cake was to die for!

We all left with a warm, you heard me, warm baguette and a fresh croissant. This tour was informative and well worth the minimal fee we paid.

loved it, very interesting and worthwhile! we were in a group of 8 and found it a bit too tight of quarters as we were all squeezed in. Loved our guide Roberto. Great authentic experience of how a bakery operates and how the pastries/baguettes are made

This was such a great tour and insight of the bakery. Being able to watch them actually make and bake the baguettes and croissants made it more meaningful and then to taste the products afterwards was amazing. The guide was very informative and able to answer all the questions we had.

Great insights into not only "how' but "why" of French bread-making. Our guide, Amélie, was knowledgeable and clearly on great terms with the owner and the bakers. What she did not know, she asked them and they were very open. And, the sample tasting afterwards was phenomenal. The maker of the almond-paste croissant should be put in jail. That recipe is so good, it's a crime!
