Amazing chocolate and pastry tour

Julie our tour guide was so knowledgeable about chocolate and pastries and was just an amazing guide. We were so full and satisfied with all the tastings - maybe 8 or so stops. Such a great afternoon for me and my teenage daughter.

A wonderful stroll around St. Germain des Pres, with visits to the most extraordinary artisanal shops in Paris. Each one was a labor of love for detail, the finest ingredients, the most piquant fruits and smoothest caramels and cremes. The macaroons put that famous brand to shame! And the pastries are like mini sculptures. Stefan ran a restaurant and understands how each treasure is made, explains the history of chocolate and gives you tastes of different flavors from around the world. His enthusiasm is infectious. It is an afternoon not to be missed!

Chocolate Tour with Nicolas Ferrand

This was my daughters first trip to Paris and nothing could be better as an introduction to Paris history and the food culture than this tour! Our guide Nicolas provided the perfect blend of history and gastronomic delight as he took us on a beautiful walking tour of the St. Germain area. His knowledge of food truly helped us appreciate the craftsmanship that went into every item we tasted. His recommendations were perfect. Make sure you have an appetite! you are tempted to over-indulge at the start but you really need to save room for the number of fantastic tastings you will sample.

Antoine, our guide, was so knowledgeable and had so much industry experience. He was also also very passionate about chocolate and friendly. He even made us reservations at one of his favorite restaurants whe. I asked for a recommendation. The kids ages 13 thru 16 really enjoyed it as well. You learn so much more then just about chocolate...which was amazing alone.
