  • My wife and I loved this tour.....we got to taste macarons from 5 different shops.....visiting the shops was great fun, our guide was full of great information and a pleasure to be with. At the end we taste tested all our macarons.....we won't tell you our favorites...it was a very difficult choice....needless to say, we ate every last one of them.....We highly recommend this tour....

  • Amazing Macarons, beautiful area of Paris. Macarons were excelllent. Finished off the tour with a tasting in the park.

  • I have enjoyed the tour very much. Very well planned and informative. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. A lot of interesting history stories are shared. It and #39;s a great way to learn a bit of Paris history while hunting down some macarons in Saint Germain quarter. It and #39;s a great tour for anyone who wants to know more of macaron and taste one of the finest macaron shops in Paris :)

  • This was a fun tour, especially for kids. The tour guide was very good at directing conversation to my 10-yr old, and she loved the fact that she got 5 macarons plus some of mine in one setting. We walked around St Germain and learned some history of the area and went to 5 different macaron patisseries and got a little info about each. Then, we went to a cafe that our guide had booked and we sat and tasted all 5 2 flavours at each, that we shared between the 2 people in my group at one time so that we could compare various characteristics.
