We did the morning tour with Quentin, who was really fun and informative. We navigated the main part of the city, stopping at a bakery, a chocolatier, where we saw where the gorgeous treats are made (so cool!). We ended our time with a wonderful homemade lunch of quiche and salad and wine and good laughs. Definitely recommend the tour, and specifically, Quentin! Thank you!

Very good

But I would have liked to see more regional things: making canelé, cheese from the southwest. The meal was good. I had not seen it in the description of the activity so good surprise. The explanations during the visit were very good. A little history but not too much and of the present = very good.
