Tour was great, we stopped at five different shops and got tastings of chocolates, eclairs, bread, croissants, and macarons at some of Paris' best chocolatiers and boulangeries. Learned about the history of these deserts and how they are made I now know the difference between a garage and a praline. Plenty of sweets, no room left for lunch that day.

Highly recommend... the tour was great. It was a small group, our guide was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed all of the great chocolates and pastries! Would definitely do this tour again!

David was absolutely brilliant. The tour was extremely informative and all of the samples of food were delicious! Highly recommend to anyone who doesn't mind a little walking too.

For some, the thought of trekking around an unfamiliar city with strangers is horrific and requires too much effort when on holiday. However, this tour was a tremendous way to learn about the history of Paris, the stories of some world-famous bakers and chocolatiers and, most importantly, the history of chocolate!

Our tour guide Adeline was friendly, enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable, maintaining our interest throughout the duration of the tour. We visited several patisseries, bakeries and chocolate shops and were given a range of samples to choose from in each place.

The tour was interesting and highly enjoyable, and as a family suited us well because we all have different tastes - to be able to customize what we ate was fantastic. Definitely a highlight of our holiday!

The guide was excellent and provided us with all sorts of interesting information. It was thoroughly enjoyable and it was wonderful to discover these wonderful chocolate and pastry shops.

Our guide Cedric not only knew the best place for eclairs, macarons, and chocolat, he also was expert in French history, pointing out architectural details from the Haussmann period that renovated Paris. And of course, the sweets were out of this world. A terrific tour!

BTW, we strongly recommend Viator tours. On our two week trip, we did this one in Paris, and three in Rome one food tour, Colosseum and Vatican. All were well worth the money. Guides were great, skip the line was most welcome as the weather was very hot.

What a great experience! We tasted a delicious variety of chocolates and pastries on this tour: macaroons, raisin bread, truffles, and of course a variety of chocolates. We were given many options to choose from and we learned a lot about the history of chocolate and the various companies along the way. It was a lot of walking so be sure to wear your good walking shoes. We were given time to stop and buy water along the way. Our tour guide Roberto was excellent! He was flexible, intuitive, and informative. My favorite stop was to a shop that had hundreds of cute chocolate animals on display!

Melissa was a wonderful guide and took us to some great places, winding through the streets of Paris. It was all delicious and well worth the money. We loved it!

What a way to discover Paris!

We ate our way around patisseries and chocolatiers that we could never have found on our own. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better or more delicious, it did.

Just make sure you arrive hungry and ready to taste the generous samples at each location.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and lovely. A great afternoon of discovery as it was our first trip to Paris.
The only thing we wished we had thought to do is bring along an insulated bag with cold pack as I really wanted to buy some of the chocolates and macaroons, but it was a hot day and they would have melted. Perhaps you could include them with the tour?
Thanks,
Deb French

Our lovely guide was well organized and had a great itinerary for our group. Samples along the way and lots of great souvenirs from the most unique shops in all of Paris. It was worth the cost and saw some great sights along the way. I wish I could remember the guide's name....she was great. A cartoon illustrator that had a great knowledge of the city and all of the special chocolate and pastry shops. Never rushed us and allowed us to enjoy every sample!

A must do in Paris! Do not eat any sweets until you go on this tour. The best of Paris! The guide was engaging and very informative.

This was such a fun tour and we had so many good sweets! Our tour guide was fun and friendly and he had us eat chocolates, macaroons, bread, choux, and meringues! We got to choose the flavors we wanted to try and we also passed through a very pretty church.

I wouldn't have believed it if you had told me that there would be so many foods and sweets to sample that I would be too full to taste them all, but there really were!

Loved this tour. Our guide Melissa was very pleasant and knowledgeable about chocolate, cheeses and pastries. We went to places we never could have found on our own and were told about the background or history of the store owners. On this Left Bank tour we saw some hidden and historical gems that made the tour very worthwhile in itself. The products we tasted were first-rate and exquisitely designed. Treat yourself to this special French experience and you will forever be dreaming of macarons!

great tour with even better food tastings. small group size was great. all of the stops were delicious. good mix between macaroons and chocolates, not really any pastries. opportunities to buy extra things at each of the stops as well. there was one stop at an artisan bread store that felt out of place but all other stops were great. bring water because you will get thirsty
