What people are saying about Latin Quarter

The two of us were the only ones on the tour. Our guide was David - he showed us a lovely time among multiple chocolate shops and described in detail the different histories and backgrounds of the chocolates and shops. Also stopped at a macaron shop (bought some). Lots of samples at each store included in the price of the tour - so much that we had to bring some back to the hotel with us. A solid 2 hours of walking so be advised to have some comfortable shoes on. Great afternoon and prepped us to look at French chocolate across the rest of the city.

An amazing and delicious way to get to know the area of Paris you’re staying in. Our guide showed us the hidden gems around us and the best spots for what we were interested in trying. Francois had great stories and knowledge of the area, and was friendly and charming. He even helped us find a bakery known for selling the baguette sandwich that I had been craving! Be sure to start on an empty stomach, and save room for dessert!

This tour was amazing. We spent the tour in the 6th Arr. We started with some sweet treats then moved to savoury. I ate so much. Full on meals and wine.
