We chose the St Germain location for our tour. Our tour guide Randa was engaging and knowledgeable. The tour group was small which we appreciated. My 14-year-old daughter and I were grouped with a family of five. The three children ranged from about four years old to nine years old. Randa was wonderful with the children. My daughter and I agreed that watching the tour guide interact with the younger children was a wonderful part of the tour. And, the pastry and chocolate were delicious. We ate so much and learned a lot too including great history tidbits. The tour guide had good relationships with store owners. Highly recommend this tour.
What an amazing experience and the most delicious way to learn the history of the Marais district. I highly recommend!
This tour really was amazing, we went to about 4-5 pastry/chocolate shops and got to try something from everywhere. David was our guide and he was soooo awesome!! Gave us history of saint Germaine and history of the pastry shops as well as how they were made. It was a well-worth afternoon spent !
This was such a treat for the whole family! We had a wonderful guide who shared information both about the history and making of chocolate and pastries as well as teaching us about the history and architecture of the Marais.
My mom and I took this tour together and had an absolutely wonderful time. The guide we had was tremendously knowledgeable about not just chocolate, but Parisian history as well--not to mention very kind. This tour was the whole package because it took us to the hidden and also famous spots in the St. Germain neighborhood where we tried something different at every stop. She also took her time to point out significant places and landmarks and shared history that made this tour all the more meaningful and informative. The group was intentionally kept small so we all felt free to ask questions, and it made the experience that much better. I can't say enough about this tour and would take it again in a second. We left with full bellies and brains.
We had an AMZING time on our Chocolate and Pastry tour. Our guide, Josie, was awesome! She was extremely knowledgable, personable, and a fellow Chicagoan so we got along great! My husband and I were in Paris for our honeymoon, and being a couple of food lovers, this tour was right up our alley. What was even better was that it ended up being a private tour, as we were the only ones signed up! It was great to walk around Paris, not only exploring a new area of the city, but learning the history of breads, jams, chocolates, macarons, and so much more! We had so much fun tasting all the different food items and talking with the different shop owners and workers mostly through Josie as her French is MUCH better than mine : and we discovered so many new things! I, for one, discovered that I actually DO like White Chocolate, I've just never had it made correctly. We also discovered a new favorite jam shop that we will for sure be visiting when we are in Paris again. Overall, it was one of our favorite activities of our Honeymoon, and highly recommend anyone visiting Paris check out!
I love chocolate, so if you are a lover like me you would enjoy this tour a lot. Highly recommend
Great fun - a true highlight of a very short visit to Paris. Eloise, our guide, took us on a zigzag route through the Marais district to several chocolatiers and pastry bakers. We learned about bean to bar chocolate making and got to sample chocolates from several countries that grow the beans only located around the Equator. Learned the difference between French and American pralines. Sampled Chartreuse liqueur and chocolates filled with the same. Had bakery treats at a lone Jewish bakery most were closed for the Sabbath, and learned the roots of American delicatessen food came from Ashkenazi immigrants/refugees. Had authentic macarons for the first time and was pleasantly surprised by the texture chewy, not hard.
This is something you cannot do on your own: identify the best chocolate and pastry shops in Paris, walk in, and taste samples. My wife sprained her knee and couldn't make the excursion, and they gave me samples to take back to her.
