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.

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. I don't want to give away the spots we went to, but if you are looking for a sweet and savoury tour, then I definitely recommend this one. Francois was my tour guide.

The small group size and very knowledgeable and interactive tour guide made for a wonderful way to see parts unknown of this beautiful city. Thanks for the great time Claudia!

Wonderful! We loved the hands on experience! Amanda was great! Couldn’t have asked for anything more!
