    Fantastic and delicous tour!

    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!!

    Charming, competent and very tasty!

    We were lucky enough to have our guide Verena all to ourselves as a small family. She responded very well to our needs and had a keen sense of when it was enough for the children with historical background information. As a native German speaker with a long Paris experience, Verena was also the perfect linguist. The tour was well planned, you got a great overview of the Marais district. The highlights were the mini-tastings of pastries and chocolate - mmmhm! You should definitely not eat much before the tour starts! We can fully recommend the tour.

    David's guidance is excellent

    Le Marais is a trading nest of an (almost) disappeared kind of artists' crafts who give their chocolate, their sausage, their tea, their coffee, their biscuit, that special professional touch that makes you say, this is really more than the chocolate from Nutella or Auchan's sausage not to forget the Lipton tea. If you don't taste the difference, it's a shame, you missed a piece of life. Guide David shows you around with expertise in a traditional environment where even Belgians, who also know a lot about chocolate, look back with appreciation to the pralineurs of Le Marais. However, the price-quality ratio of this tour is bad. Just way too expensive and that is probably not due to the guide, nor to the shops where you can taste with love. Recommended but do not pay this !
