    We loved this tour!! Le Marais is a wonderful area of Paris and the pastries and chocolates are incredible. We learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed our time getting to know the area better. Also, when we had trouble finding the meeting location, the company was calling us immediately to help us out. Highly recommend this tour!!

    Caroline was a wonderful guide. We had a private tour of Le Marais. The places she took us to were unique and delicious. Caroline did an excellent job explaining everything. We learned a lot about chocolate and French pastries. She was also so funny and witty. To our delight, she also showed us the hidden history of the area and some amazing locations that only the locals would know about. This has been a highlight of our visit to Paris! Caroline was also training Eloise to be a guide. She too had a lot of information about sweets and the area history. Book this tour! You won't regret it.

    We had a fabulous time despite the rainy day. It was a wonderful way to get a taste of so many delicious treats that we would never stop for. Learned to appreciate the beauty and thought into these treats too. A nice tour of the Marais and Roberto, our guide, was the KINDEST gentleman we met in Paris! We did the tour at the end of our trip and I would have done it sooner to experience the beauty of the Marais. We would have spent more time in this area.
