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.

Fun, interesting and informative hour at the French bakery. Our interpreter was great and the staff at the bakery, friendly and accommodating. We also got some lovely 'treats' to take home!

This was a great way to start off our stay in Paris. The bakeries are tiny but that didn't stop them from letting us get a close up look on the baking steps for both baguettes and croissants. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the process herself, but nothing beats watching the yourself and asking questions directly to the bakers our tour guide handled the translations. He even let some of us help for a bit. Great activities for the kids and you end the tour by eating a bunch of goodies - so that cant be bad.

Fun fact - the one baker by himself was making 2,500 baguettes that morning.

Vincent was great as was the staff of the bakery. We watched the process of making baguettes as well as toured the other parts of the bakery. The tasting of the various pastries afterwords was magnifique!

I would give this 6 stars if the ratings went that high! This really was one of the highlights of our vacation. Due to scheduling issues, we ended up with a separate private tour for my family of 5, which was great given how small the boulangerie was. The tour guide was great and the folks at the boulangerie could not have been nicer or more informative. Lots of great information from the bakers and samples of warm baguettes right out of the oven! I would and probably will someday do this tour again!

Wonderful tour. Our guide was good and gave us lots of information. The experience itself is something you cannot do on your own. I highly recommend it for families. The place was very busy but the people that work there were welcoming.

You cannot get this experience in many places.

One of my favorite experiences in Paris. It's a small space so it's amazing how they make one of the best breads in all of Paris and how many people work so efficiently. This is your tour if you want to see a baguette or croissant made from scratch.

Mike was very good as our guide, giving us insights in bread making in this wonderful bakery. Everyone in the bakery was busy, but they were also very nice and never hesitated to stop and answer questions, or showing us how things work. Lots of great tips. the baguette and croissant we got at the end of the tour was soooo fresh and good!

I really enjoyed this tour. I met Natalie at the bakery who gave me the tour and was also my interpreter since I don't speak French. I was the only one that day! She was really nice as were all the employees at the bakery. It's a very small space, and frankly I thought they might be a bit annoyed to have 2 extra people. But they were extremely nice and responsive, answering any questions we had. And happy. Watching them work I could see it is a very physical job and they're on their feet the whole time. The bakery I met at was within walking distance of Sacre Coure, and you leave with a bagette and croissant. Reasonably priced as well. I would definitely recommend this tour if you are a foodie, like seeing how things are made, and like to see behind the scenes of a functioning operation. Thank you Natalie and to the bakery and staff as well.

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.
