    Montmartre
    Stop: 60 minutes
    On this intimate small-group tour of a Paris bakery located in the picturesque Montmartre neighborhood, you'll go behind the scenes and explore the production rooms where French bread and 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, your guide will give you plenty of bread-making tips and will tell you about the bread history. Far from a factory with industrial methods, the French bakery you’ll visit is a typical small and independent Parisian production unit.  The bakers are skilled artisan craftsmen who have real passion for every aspect of French baking. In addition to your newly acquired baking knowledge, you'll also take home a freshly baked French baguette and a croissant! The exact address of your bakery will be sent to you after your reservation is made.

An excellent view of a working french bakery. From yeast to flour to rising dough- 24 hours for a proper baguette. Then watching how the dough is rolled and cooked.Then a tour downstairs where the patisseries are made along with specialist items. And all sparkingly presented by a knowledgeable lady who filled in many details. And the staff were so welcoming. Despite a 3am start. An excellent time and a really good tour- well worth it.

We did a behind the scenes bakery visit. It was a very small bakery, you could see a bit of how they do the baguette and very little about patisserie. You can see only what they are doing at the moment, so when we were there there was not much to see. They were not doing croissants only some little puffs. They gave us to taste a piece of baguette and a small piece of cake.To take with us they gave us a cold baguette and a cold croissant, nothing just from the oven. The tour was less than 45 mins. The guide was nice though. Overall, too expensive for the experience, I will not reccomend it.

Hello inseraphin, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review after your visit! We apologize that you felt that the experience wasn't worth the price. Unfortunately, as this is an authentic French bakery, they cannot plan their baking and preparation schedules around the time of the visits; they must prepare different things on different dates according to what is needed at the time. Therefore, it is impossible to guarantee that visitors will see certain things being made during their visit. As for the gifts at the end, the baguette and croissant that you received were indeed freshly-made during that morning; these are not necessarily served hot, and it is typical in France to eat them colder or at room temperature. If you feel you are looking for a more complete bakery experience on your next trip to Paris, don't hesitate to write to us at contact@meetingthefrench.com; we offer personalized baking and cooking classes and would be delighted to welcome you back for an experience tailored to your expectations.

My teenage granddaughter and I visited a bakery this past week. We enjoyed gracious hospitality but the tour was long and tedious, even at one hour. The bakery was recognized for its quality and our tour guide was good. The bakery was small and they seem to work one bread and one pastry product at a time. There was a lot of waiting and watching. My granddaughter and I agreed we would not do it again.

Hello, Thank you for your review! We're sorry to hear that your time at the bakery seemed a bit slow or tedious. As the bakers have planned out their entire days and bake according to what is needed on the shelves at certain times, it is true that every visit is different and you may not get to see every product being made at once. We hope that you learned a lot from the experience and are glad you enjoyed your time with your guide Vincent.
