    Tour was a great way to explore Saint Germain and all the wonderful chocolate and pastry shops. Tibu was great! He definitely knew this area and all the fascinating historical details along with some great sightseeing facts. All the chocolates were to die for and the pastries were just as tasty! Next time we will definitely try the one in the Marais district.

    Our guide was very punctual and gave us a friendly welcome. She also spoke German, as I had booked, and explained a lot to us. Unfortunately, speaking German is not always a matter of course in France. I had already booked something in German, but unfortunately the person only spoke English and French, so it was really perfect for this tour, since our guide was also from Germany. We were allowed to taste different things like an eclair, chocolates, caramel, different types of jam, macarons and bread and got a nice insight into the district and a lot of great information about Paris.

    Great guide, fun tour

    I forget the tour guide's name. She was Ukrainian and a former baker so she had great insight to the bakeries and what goes into the process for creating artisanal bakery products. She was very knowledgeable. The tour leaned a bit more toward chocolate than bakery but both were covered well. Samples were plentiful and we had sufficient time to buy personal items and gifts
