Our guide Erin was extremely helpful and a wonderful guide!
We met in front of our first chocolate stop there were 6 chocolate shops, and 2 bed shops on this tour... all AMAZING!!! The whole tour is all walking, but the stops are close enough together that it doesn't feel like you are walking the whole time.
We enjoyed 2 - 4 chocolates at each stop, and a full baguette and croissant at our bread stops.
Each stop was more yummy than the last but our favorite chocolate was at Patrick Roger!
Our tour was supposed to be 2 hours, but our guide gave us an extra hour since we were the only ones on the whole tour We went right after the terror attack.
Erin was able to help us after the tour find a wonderful chees shop to buy some great items for our dinner that night to go with all of our left over bread and chocolate for dessert.
Over all: One of the most fun tours we did on our whole trip!

We had the unfortunate situation where we arrived in Paris the day of the terrorist attacks in November. Our tour operator contacted us the morning of our tour and checked in to make sure things were ok and wondered if we were still wanting to continue.

We were very excited to get on our tour, and we are glad that we did. Our guide Josie was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and we had a great time. The food was fantastic. Her knowledge of cooking really helped the tour.

When we return with our daughters, we will ask for her again.

This was the highlight of our trip in addition to tasting the best bread and chocolates. We learned a lot about bread and chocolate on this tour. Our tour guide was very helpful and informative. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone who loves chocolate and pastry. It would be a good idea to have only a light lunch if you are doing the afternoon tour as you will have plenty to eat.

Arielle was simply fantastic. I was the only student on the tour, so we had plenty of time to chat and discuss everything along the way. Her English was perfect and she is obviously incredibly knowledgeable on the history of Chocolate and Pasties in Paris and was able to deftly explain the intricacies of the chocolate making process, the difference between the types of cacao etc. She was also simply pleasant to be around and a fun guide. The tour itself and the chocolate was of course divine, all of the stops had a unique element and the samples I tried were all 10/10 wonderful. I can't recommend the tour and Arielle enough!

Loved this tour. Our guide was charming and there wasn't too many people. I would recommend this to anyone. The stops on the tour were great and we were able to experience a wide variety of places. It didn't feel rushed and the neighborhood is lovely.

Fantastic tour of beautiful chocolate and pastry shops. Easy walking and good guide who seemed well received by the shop managers. Well worth the effort, although maybe 30 minute too long. The amount of rich chocolate you taste does mean that you have to either love chocolate or take a doggy bag for some of the tastings!

The tour was wonderful and the tour guide Melissa was very flexible and responded to our questions and provided answers to all of our questions. we had a great time and it was well worth the time and money. With a maximum of 8 people the guide was able to tailor the tour and seek input from us and answer each question individually. We had 7 people in our tour and Melissa answered questions on chocolate and pastry and also about the area we were walking through as we went.

We had David as our guide. There were 5 people in this tour. We tasted pastries, macaroons and chocolate. I cannot say enough about DAVID. So polite, so passionate about his city, We had a lot of laughs on the way and I cant imagine doing this fabulous tour with anyone else besides David. Karen and Rita

We had a great time on this tour with our 2 kids, ages 12 and 15. Our guide started by talking about the history of chocolate for about 30 minutes, which frankly got a bit boring standing out on the sidewalk listening for that long. But once we got going and went to the various shops 5 we all loved it, and felt like we went to places we wouldn't have know about without the tour. We tried chocolate, bread, croissants, macarons, and drinking chocolate too. It was a fun outing that we all enjoyed.
