Camilia met us on a rainy day we were the only 2 on the tour. She was knowledgeable about Paris and baking and Marais. She spent 3 hours with us in spite of the rain. It was wonderful!

Olga was awesome. My wife and I were fortunate to have her tour all to ourselves. She was very informative and we did lots of walking and sampling, so go on empty stomach. It was lots of fun

The tour was especially intimate, since my friend and I were the only ones in the group. Olga was kind, patient and extremely knowledgeable of the best Parisian pastry, tea, coffee and chocolate shops. I would highly recommend anyone to meet Olga and experience Paris at its best!

Had a wonderful tour going to six different shops and being able to try at each one. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly!

We have been to Paris several times before, and this time we let our 10- and 12-year old choose what to do. They chose this tour and I am so glad they did! The guides get to choose the shops the tour visits, which means each tour has special stops unique to each guide. We have been to that area of Paris several times, but we visited shops we had never seen or would never have thought to enter previously. The guide was very knowledgeable and had several surprises for us. I would recommend this tour to anyone, with or without kids.

This was a day well spent. Our guide was so fun and interesting. We learned so much about French chocolate and pastries and so much about history of the area where we were. Everything was delicious.

This was one of our favorite moments on our trip. The guide Randa was extremely friendly and engaging. The treats were amazing and I have a completely new appreciation for chocolates and pastries. Definitely don't eat a full meal before you start though. We did and couldn't finish the tastings at the final stop. Still it was a very worthwhile tour.

Our family (2 adults and 2 teens) enjoyed sampling chocolates, pastries, bread, and macaroons from several shops in the area. Our guide Melissa was friendly, knowledgeable, and answered our questions about sweets and Paris in general. Highly recommend this tour. We did 10:15 time, and followed it with lunch in the area.

Highly informative! Guide explained chocolates are not all made the same way. They’re made of coco plants from different areas of the world and thus would taste different:-) So are pastries. We got taste chocolates, pastries, baguettes and french breads from different makers.

Our guide Roberto took us on a walking tour of some of the best chocolate and pastry shops in Paris! Such a fun and yummy way to see the city!

Our guide Steffanie was a delightful and knowledgeable expert in all things chocolate and took us to seven different styles of chocolate making businesses. The Morais district was a most interesting and historical part of Paris and well worth the walk not to mention the many samples had along the way I would definitely recommend this tour.

We booked the 10:15am tour, and were by ourselves! David was our guide, and what a wonderful person he was to have with us. He was knowledgable about Paris history, chocolates, and pastries. It was such a wonderful way to spend a morning in Paris.

This was a wonderful 3 hour walking tour with visits to 7 shops to sample chocolates/pastries. Our guide Kristine was excellent and provided us with information about the history of chocolates, pastries, and bread in Paris, as well as information about this area of Paris. Highly recommend!

What a fun way to spend a day in Paris! Our guide took us to several locations in the St Germain neighborhood. Each place had a different specialty, and we enjoyed sampling the best of what each had to offer. Our knowledgeable guide offered lots of history and local lore along the way. We especially enjoyed that this was just a little off the typical touristy path, but we could walk right back to Notre Dame when we finished the tour. This is one of our favorite Viators ever!

We had a great tour guide with lots of interesting facts and details about the food and the city. She was very knowledgeable and attentive to us. The food was amazing! The chocolates tasted incredible, a wide variety with the history of them included. The breads were delicious and we used the information during the rest of our stay in Paris! Thank you Randa!!

This tour was awesome! My sister and I were the only ones booked on this wonderful tour. Our guide, Erli, had an absolute passion for chocolate, along with tremendous knowledge. She took us to 6 different chocolate and pastry shops. We could pick what we wanted to sample. Wow! We learned about macaroons, something that neither of us had ever tasted. They are delicious! The tour was exquisite and provided us with a very personal look at Paris. I would highly recommend this tour!

We spent a wonderful three hours with Marc exploring various chocolate and pastry shops along with a couple of terrific bakeries, Marc provided superb commentary throughout the three hour tour and I don't think I've ever eaten so well on an excursion as I did on this one. Our tour started in the Saint-Germain district. First rate!

We chose the St Germain location for our tour. Our tour guide Randa was engaging and knowledgeable. The tour group was small which we appreciated. My 14-year-old daughter and I were grouped with a family of five. The three children ranged from about four years old to nine years old. Randa was wonderful with the children. My daughter and I agreed that watching the tour guide interact with the younger children was a wonderful part of the tour. And, the pastry and chocolate were delicious. We ate so much and learned a lot too including great history tidbits. The tour guide had good relationships with store owners. Highly recommend this tour.

What an amazing experience and the most delicious way to learn the history of the Marais district. I highly recommend!
• Submitted 07 Apr 2018
This tour really was amazing, we went to about 4-5 pastry/chocolate shops and got to try something from everywhere. David was our guide and he was soooo awesome!! Gave us history of saint Germaine and history of the pastry shops as well as how they were made. It was a well-worth afternoon spent !

This was such a treat for the whole family! We had a wonderful guide who shared information both about the history and making of chocolate and pastries as well as teaching us about the history and architecture of the Marais.
