    Experience was great. Our guide did an awesome job of explaining how French pastries and chocolate were made and why. The food was incredible and we learned a lot about the history of the area.

    Yummy tasting around Paris

    , Aug 2022
    This was an excellent tour. The food was delicious and our guide was excellent. She took the time to explain the history of each place we visited and how they made the specialty that we were tasting. Unfortunately it was something like 38 degrees so we were all hot and bothered, which made it difficult to really enjoy the tour.

    Our tour guide was excellent! In addition to bringing us to taste delicious things in places we would not likely have found on our own, she also was so knowledgeable about the area and local history. It was fun, would highly recommend.

    The tastiest sweets in Paris in 2 hours

    , Jul 2022
    So much fun to get some history of and taste samples of the finest chocalatiers ond patissiers Though many of these have been on my “must go” list over several trips, many others were new to me, and offered views into new trends in chocolate-making, as well as the beauty of hewing to traditional methods with the highest rigor.

    Do not waste your money totally displeased

    This was the most disappointing and unprofessional tour we have taken in the last 20 years. The tour guide was totally uneducated for the area and was unprepared for this tour. We took this tour two years ago and we’re so happy with it that we decided to come back and do it again with our daughter but could not even finish the tour and left early as the tour guide could not even navigate or explain one site or a bit of information about chocolate. The guide was repeatedly researching locations and information on her phone as she navigate it. It’s almost as if she woke up that morning and decided “I’m going to be a chocolate tour guide”. When asked, the tour guide explained this was her only second tour doing this; there should be a much better vetting process from the company before letting such an inexperienced person perform the services for this kind of money. We felt we knew more than the guide by doing the tour before. We would never ever recommend this tour again to anyone.

    Great way to spend 2 hours in Paris!

    My 14 year old daughter and I enjoyed this tour! It is a great way to spend 2 hours in Paris. Our guide was charming and took us around to a variety of shops in the Marais. He gave a bit of history about the area and pointed out some notable landmarks. We popped into a church and a park and also stopped for a drink. And of course we tasted lots of sweets!!! We tasted a variety of things and it was just really fun!

    Mediocre Tour
    berylkim
    , Jul 2022
    Our guide was a nice woman who was not necessarily French but spoke French. She gave us a tour of several nice chocolate shops and bakeries which were all tasty. She was very accommodating and nice “but” we constantly felt rushed throughout our visits in the shops. We didn’t really get a tour or historical info about the Saint Germain area. I learned very little about this area. Our guide simply took us to the local shops which we could’ve easily done on our own through our own research. We went on several tours in Paris by other companies and all of our tours were great. Unfortunately this tour was very disappointing.

    Sweet Tour, Great Guide, Needs More Variety
    Marilyn_F
    , Jul 2022
    We were a family with young kids, and we all enjoyed our tour guide, Tibo, who was very interesting and engaging. It was fun to see the different shops and the beautiful way they package things. However everyone got a little tired of so many chocolate shops ~ too much of a good thing! Since we had children along and didn't want to do wine, we would like to have found a tour with one cheese, one pastry/croissant, one chocolate, one macaron, and maybe one crepe. Sampling kid favorites!

    There should be an age limit on these trips. A couple brought their 2 children who fought with each other the entire time. It was incredibly disruptive. Tour guide was awesome!

    The best part, even better than the tastings, was understanding the nuances and complexities of the different culinary arts, as well as the history associated with them. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and welcoming.

    Good shops and tasty treats. Not much time to purchase items. Wish there had been water available. Having to climb to the second floor without a rail was difficult. T was amusing and quite knowledgeable.

    Price for the tour totally out of bounds.
    Robert_K
    , Jun 2022
    The tour leader was exceptional, but the price for the tour itself was too extreme. The tour was in excess of $100 per person and the value of the very….very small pieces of chocolate and pastries couldn’t have been greater than $15 per person. I understand the tour company needs to make a profit, but this tour is totally out of control.

    A very nice chocolate tour of the Marais. Not much in the way of history, but entertaining. The final stop with an educational lecture on chocolate by a master chocolatier was definitely the highlight

    We had a great time exploring the Marais with our guide Tebeau. He shared with us lots of history about the area while also getting some unique treats along the way. This was a great afternoon activity.
