Our guide Steffanie was a delightful and knowledgeable expert in all things chocolate and took us to seven different styles of chocolate making businesses. The Morais district was a most interesting and historical part of Paris and well worth the walk not to mention the many samples had along the way I would definitely recommend this tour.
Really glad we did this walking tour it's the details you wouldn't know about on your own. We had actually walked past some of the shops we went to on our own walk in the neighborhood, without knowing their significance or edible delights! Nice balance between the chocolates and the pastry and history of Saint Germain. Our guide lives locally and was excellent. Nice pace and didn't feel too hurried.
The guide was a very nice young man but the tour itself was problematic in that each store had many customers who did not appreciate a tour group of six people being in their way. Also I would have loved to have been able to purchase during our stops but could not due to the high volume of customers already in these stores and could not get waited on and our tour group was only for a set amount of time.
This was a wonderful 3 hour walking tour with visits to 7 shops to sample chocolates/pastries. Our guide Kristine was excellent and provided us with information about the history of chocolates, pastries, and bread in Paris, as well as information about this area of Paris. Highly recommend!
two star for the effort of the tour guide. I was disappointed for 100 per person, she probably only spent 20 for one person or less. Water is not even included. You go for about 6-7 shops, you choose 1 chocolate or 1 macaroon and eat it. A tiny piece of chocolate. I know it was a tasting experience but not worth it. She directed us to the near grocery to buy our own water. On the bread store she bought one bread and 8 people had to split it. I can see all the prices of everything that she bought and I can tell that it was no more than 20 per person. The timew as spent from walking and trying to tell us about the streets and its history. It was 4 hours but the food tour was definitely less than that.
What a fun way to spend a day in Paris! Our guide took us to several locations in the St Germain neighborhood. Each place had a different specialty, and we enjoyed sampling the best of what each had to offer. Our knowledgeable guide offered lots of history and local lore along the way. We especially enjoyed that this was just a little off the typical touristy path, but we could walk right back to Notre Dame when we finished the tour. This is one of our favorite Viators ever!
