    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.

    Amazing Tour. Highly Recommend!

    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.
