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.
I really enjoyed this tour. It was great to watch the baker work. The guide, Sara, was wonderful with explaining all the details.
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.
A fun and interesting bakery experience. The warm baguette at the end of tour was a great bonus!
This was super interesting. My 3 boys Ages 7, 8 and 13 were super interested and engaged the entire time. My husband and I also enjoyed as well
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 .
Super interesting. Spent about an hour in the kitchen watching the bread being made and learning the process. Ended with a yummy tasting! Great tour guide!
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
Great tour. The bakers and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. Very interesting. Thoroughly enjoyed our time learning about a French bakery.
Unique and super fun! So happy we did this. We had our 13 yr old son future chef and 10 yr old daughter with us and they also really loved it.
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!
My spouse and I enjoyed this tour very much. It was very informative and the samples given out where plentiful and delicious!
This was a GREAT tour!! So interesting and so much fun! I would definitely recommend this tour. The boulangerie bakers and chefs were very friendly and interesting and happy to answer any questions we had. Our tour guide was really great and her english was exceptional. This was one of the best!
