Know More about this tour

On this intimate small-group tour of a Paris boulangerie (bakery), you'll go behind the scenes and explore the production rooms where French pain (bread), gateaux (cakes) and patisseries (pastries) are made.
Your knowledgeable bakery guide will explain how to make the famous French baguette and will demonstrate how the machines work. In a warm and relaxed atmosphere, the baker will give you plenty of bread-making tips and will tell you about the bread history.

    Do not take this tour expecting you be able to make bakery items. This is more of how the store makes things from scratch. The kitchen was very compact and there were only four people in our group; us, the tour guides and the staff had to figure out how to maneuver around each other. Learned a few things about how bread is cooked but would have loved a more in-depth, hands on experience. The gratis bread and croissant gift we good. Our guides were nice. We left a bit disappointed. Make sure to wear clothes you can get flour on and non-skid shoes: floor was VERY slippery!

    Our tour guide was prompt and very friendly. He answered lots of our questions and interpreted any answers from the bakers for us. The boulangerie staff was very friendly too and tried to explain their processes and answer our questions with the help of the tour guide. The bread baker let us make the release cuts in our own baguettes that we were given to take home. We were also given a croissant and a pastry sample.

    What a delightful experience! We learned a lot and it was a unique opportunity to be so close to so many baguettes in the bread kitchen and to so many pastries in the patisserie kitchen. Highly recommend this 1 hour snapshot of real Paris.

    Love the Bakery tour.

    Everyone was very friendly but there just wasn't enough going on to make this tour interesting. We watched them roll dough for baguettes and then we watched them put pastries together..and that was it.

    Tour was in a small bakery that produces a high volume of baked goods each day. Tour guide knew English but the bakerys manager and a few of the French-speaking tour participants did most of the talking, in French. Info shared by tour guide was very basic. If you know anything about baking bread, find a different way to enjoy Pariss wonderful baking tradition.

    The baguette and croissant were delicious! There were also a bunch of small samples to enjoy as well.

    A wonderful experience. Such fun to see the making of that delicious French bread. This tour was well worth the time.

    Wonderful. Loved this. Making croissants to take away in a traditional Paris bakery was terrific. Loads of interesting facts about the artisan industry and the skills of the bakers. What a shame England doesn't have an artisan baking tradition like this!!
