Fun Tour and Tasty Macarons!
Aug 2021
We are a family of four with daughters aged 10 and 11. We booked this tour so we could enjoy a wide variety of macarons and see Paris on foot. The macaron shops were all amazing in their own way and did not disappoint in taste. It was an easy walk through St. Germain district at an enjoyable pace. We learned the history of macarons as well as some of the shops we visited. Even some history on Paris and Napoleon were provided along the way. Johnny was a knowledge and easy going tour guide. He did a great job keeping the kids engaged throughout the tour. The best part was the tasting of all the macarons we choose and rating them. Highly recommend if you enjoy macarons!!

Thank you Julie for the friendly review! Yes it was a pleasure hanging out with you and your family, and the macaron picnic on the grass in front of the Luxembourg palace was epic! Thanks for coming to Paris and coming on the tour. Take care and we’ll see you next time! Best,

An Enjoyable & Tasty Way to Explore a Parisian Neighborhood

Johnny was fun and personable. I enjoyed walking to the famous macaron shops and choosing our samples. It was fun to end in a beautiful park and rank them by size, color, texture, flavor, etc. It was a creative and tasty tour.

Great Time had by All
Aug 2019
My husband, daughter and I all enjoyed our walking tour with Johnny. We learned about the pastry, visited 5 shops and samples macarons in Luxembourg Gardens. We were also introduced to the St Germaine area of Paris which is lovely. My 11 year old daughter selected this tour as her favorite thing from our vacation!

Thank you for your review! Yes, it was a pleasure meeting you all, and I'm glad to hear it was your daughter's favorite activity. Last year in a similar situation a family chose (largely influenced by their daughter) to do our tour over going up the Eiffel Tower! Thanks again, and we'll see you next time!

Best Macarons in Paris!
May 2019 • Couples
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful afternoon exploring the finest macaron shops in Paris. What made this tour so much fun was that the anticipation builds up right up until the end when you take part in a tasting and judging session in beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. It's a very sedate and well-organised tour which also gives you interesting facts about the history of macarons. I would totally recommend this tour, especially if you have a sweet tooth!

Macaron tour in St Germaine
Great guide -- solicitous and knowledgeable.
Wonderful idea of savouring the best macarons whilst walking it off calories. Lovely neighbourhood and the extra insights on the history of the neighbourhood.

Amazing tour guide; great value! We learned a lot, while indulging in macarons!
Nov 2018 • Family
What a delightful experience, HIGHLY recommend! Jonny is very knowledgeable as well as sincerely warm & friendly! We loved going to five different macaron shops and seeing so much of the neighborhood. He taught us quite a bit about Paris that we didn't already know (and that says a lot since, we have visited dozens of times and just spent the summer in Montmartre). You will LOVE this delicious tour.

Fun tour of macarons and beautiful Saint-Germain
Nov 2018 • Couples
We had the pleasure of having Jonny as our guide on another tour so knew that the macaron tour would be fun and educational. He has a vast knowledge of macarons and the neighborhood so don't hesitate to ask questions. Because it was cold, we did the tasting in a cafe which was fine. Will definitely sign up for the beer tour on our next visit. Great for families!

Such a fantastic guide!
Aug 2018 • Solo
What a joy! I visited Paris in August when much of the city was shuttered and Parisians were enjoying their own vacations. It was quiet, different, and fantastic in its own way. I booked the tour with Jonny and little did I know that the tour fell on a religious holiday (bank holiday?) when the Louvre actually shut early and a few of the macaron shops were closed. Jonny was so great. He didn't miss a beat! He met me anyway and made the tour super fun regardless of the obstacles. (I so appreciate that he didn't cancel!) He is knowledgeable in French history and intermixes fun historical facts with delicious tidbits about macarons. (The macarons were amazing ... with the fresh mint macaron being my favorite!) Jonny is such a thoughtful person! Next time, I'll try his craft beer tour as well!

So much FUN!
Jul 2018 • Family
I took my Mom and both my daughters on this tour. It was a blast! I can't say enough about Jonny, he was kind and patient, as we were 10 minutes behind schedule due to other sightseeing. We enjoyed speaking with him as we walked the maze of Saint-Germain's narrow streets. Our tour included Laduree, Richart, Arnaud Laher and Gerard Mulot. We each picked a different macaron at each stop and then when we sat for our tasting, we each tried a bite of one another's. It was so much fun, I highly recommend you take this tour and I know my Mom and daughters would too! Bon apetit!

Macaron heaven
Great walking tour of the St. Germain neighborhood. Was able to see many different shops and try multiple macarons. Ending in the Luxembourg Gardens was perfect. Guide was professional and informative.
