Wonderful experience around Paris
, Nov 2021
The weather was cold and rainy but we still had a wonderful time! The bread, pastries and desserts were fantastic and our guide was wonderful!

Hello Taylor, Thank you for your kind review! Please don't hesite to book with us for the next time. Best regards
Enjoyable but overpriced
, Nov 2021
We had mixed feelings about this tour. We were the only two people who were taking it on a sunny November day. The places that we visited were a mixture of boulangeries, patisseries and places that specialise in making chocolate. They were all quite nice and worth visiting and we tasted a few chocolates, macarons and pastries. However, I do not see why the cost of this tour was 120€ per person as we literally ate one macaron each, one croissant, an apple pie, bread and some small chocolate treats. I would definitely say there are better things to do in Paris for that cost.

Hello, Thank you for your feedback! The tour price includes the cost of professional guide and tastings. They represent the variety of pastries and not a full lunch. We hope you enjoyed this tour and discover the different types of pastry! Best regards,
Touring with Akiko!

Our guide Akiko was a wonderful guide! She was very enthusiastic about showing many sweet shops and provided many samples of chocolates, cakes, cookies, and pastries! Throughout the tour she made sure we were well taken care of and had multiple stops for tastings!! Highly recommend her!!!

Do it because you love sweets and bread

We got the royalty treatment on our tasting tour. We loved the history about the neighborhoods, the French sweets and being able to try pastry shops I would never normally go into.

We had high hopes for this food tour since it is Paris and this food tour received good reviews on Viator. Having done many food tours in Barcelona, Rome, New York, SF, etc., this one was the most disappointing. We waited at our first stop, Maison Pralus, for 35-40 min. Called the company several times to find an update on the arrival of our food tour guide, and she finally came. Our family had to wait outside in the rain, and mind you, we had a 4 year old, 8 year old, and 10 year old. We finally went to a few stops, but other than Pierre Herme macarons (which everyone in Paris knows is one of the best macaron shops along with Laduree), all the other stores were just ok. For the amount of money we spent, we didn’t get our moneys worth. Quite disappointed to have booked this food tour in Paris instead of another company so we could have enjoyed a food tour experience while we were here.
Great experience

Wonderful tour with David who shared interesting facts about the history and food of this great city. The jams were a surprising highlight as well of a more than 2 hour walk through the streets of Paris
Perfect tour
, Jan 2020
Guide was awesome , knowledgeable, and fun. We liked our small group of 6 so that we could participate. Definetly do not hesitate to try out this tour. Food tours are our favorite way to get to know a city!
Fun, informative tour!
, Jan 2020
We had a very fun time learning about (and tasting!!) chocolate and also Paris's famous boulangeries! Our guide David was particularly great - he knew about history, architecture, food and art in addition to chocolate, pastries and bread. A leisurely but active tour with only 7 guests, including us.
Excellent tour!

We had Eloise for this tour and it was fantastic. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and very accommodating to guests. We went to some of the best chocolate shops and pastry shops in Paris. She told us history about the neighborhoods we visited, the shops and owners, and even the treats we ate. At each stop she bought treats for us to taste. Don't eat too much at each stop. There are lots of shops and you will get full. She is also patient and will wait for you to make a purchase. We had our two sons with us and she was so great with them. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Eloise and a very friendly fellow tour taker. We highly recommend this tour to others!
