This tour was super fun and one of the highlights of our trip to Paris. We went with our kids that are 9 and 10 years old and they loved the experience. Joao, our tour guide, was very kind and knowledgable in the industry and he shared a lot of good information with us. He was also very helpful with our kids in making sure they were engaged and learning during the experience. We made financiers, also rolled dough for baguettes and croissants and pan de chocolate. We ended up bringing so much fun to our hotel. It was a great tour that I would definitely recommend.
At Manon Bakery, in a trendy area of Paris, I was met by a very friendly knowledgeable guide who explained how the bakery functions.We then entered the bakery and I learned how they hand make all their baguettes, croissants etc. I personally made several breads, rolled croissants and tiny pastries. This is an excellent tour and should not be missed by anyone visiting Paris. The smell inside the bakery will remain with you for days.
This is well worth getting up early while on vacation. Tuck, our guide and a great person cheered us all on and made it fun for all of us, ages 77 to approximately 6. We made baguette, rolled croissants, and made some small almond cookies. We had the baguette for dinner along with some wonderful cheese we purchased at a Fromagerie and some red wine we had, a few fresh strawberries and raspberries topped off our dinner. We had a GREAT morning and met a nice couple with three very lovely and very polite daughters. Would do this again!!!
Great time and friendly guide/bakery. My daughter had the time of her life.
The tour was good and nice because of our smaller group in the bakery. I would have liked a little more hands-on experience but there is only so much you can do and see in 2 hours. I loved the baguettes that we were able to take with us!
Booked this tour as the end of a culinary training tip to Paris. Showed up to the Bakery on time and no one had to clue as to why I was there. Waited for over an hour. Tried to call but no one answered the phone. They called me later and said they had sent their employee to the wrong bakery. This made no sense to me. I would not trust them.
It was a great experience, I love it.
