Our guide David was awesome, he gave us tons of information about the city and brought us to 7 different places to try eclairs, chocolates, macaroons, pastry, salted butter caramel, my Favourite was the chou! Three hours flew past in a whizz! Highly recommended!!!
Stefan was outstanding. We had an excellent time!!! He was punctual, friendly, generous and informative. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Excellent tour! Our guide is so knowledgeable with the history of Paris Architecture and Food. This is the second time I have taken this tour in 5 years. It will now disappoint :-
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!
We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour of the bakeries and candy shops. Our guide was informative about the neighborhood and the foods we tried. We recommend this tour!!
our guide David was excellent,he had great knowledge of the products ,shops and city.
It was an excellent tour.the pastry and chocolate were out of this world
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.
Great fun and lots to taste . .
Eat was too much . . .
Highly recommend. If you enjoy tasting chocolates and pastries, learning the history of some of the goodies, and getting in some walking, then you will enjoy this trip. Our guide Christine was fantastic.
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.
This was the highlight of our trip to Paris. We learned history and ate delicious food at the same time. Christine was the best.
Tour guide was prompt , knowledgeable about history of chocolates and we got complimentary samples at every shop we went to . i had to buy some macaroons to take back though, they were delious!
We also went to bakery and had original croissants . Much better than ones buy here in the states !
highly recommended. Got to see the city besides all the food. Just great.
The tour leader leader was a lovely man who was full of knowledge not only about pastries, but about the history of the city. Our tour was in the Jewish Quarter and he shared lots of historical information about the area. I am not a pastry eater, I really went because my friend wanted to go. I never eat macaroons here at home, but I was hooked after tasting them in the patisserie the guide took us to. Every shop was lovely and the chocolate and pastries were fabulous. It was a delightful way to spend a Sunday afternoon after having run around Paris for days.

EXCELLENT !!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was a highlight of our trip for my wife - great tour leader and nice small group only four people so no problem hearing or squeezing in to all those shops for those tasty nibbles !
Highly recommended! Our tour guide Josie was very informative and fun. We not only got knowledge about chocolates and French pastries but also tips and nuances on making the most of our Paris experience! Take this tour at the start of your trip.
Best tour I have done highly recommend. Our guide Adeline was so informative on the history of chocolate in France. The shops she took us too were the real deal!!
Loved it! Fun, relaxing and educational and oh so yummy! Great afternoon.
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!
