Overview

This playful Paris chocolate tour is a unique combination of history and French sweet tastings in the elegant district of Saint-Germain-des-Près. During this two and a half hour stroll, your “Mary Poppins” guide will share thrilling anecdotes while your kids will need to find answers to (easy) riddles about the places you will be visiting for your yummy tastings.

Your starting point is by the Saint Germain Church where your kid-friendly guide will offer you a first tasting: a chouquette. This French specialty, a baked and fluffy pastry, consists of small-sized dough sprinkled with pearl sugar…. simple but delicious!

You will then visit a 200-year-old chocolate factory that specializes in high-quality chocolates. Taste what Napoleon and Queen Marie-Antoinette savored, as they were usual clients for this brand formed in 1779!

Let’s now visit the paradise of macarons. This cookie made of almonds was born in Italy and traveled to France with the chef of Catherine de Medicis. Since then, this pastry has become one of the most famous French pastries in the world. You can find it in many flavors but it always keeps its round form.

A Paris Chocolate Tour- yummy and fun at the same time!

The next tasting of this family sweet and chocolate tour will be at a Chocolate Mousse Bar offering mousses made with chocolates from all over the world. This is the perfect occasion to experience a new chocolate texture while learning about cocoa in general!

From there, follow your “Mary Poppins” guide to what is reputed to be the temple of jam! With hundreds of different flavors to taste, we guarantee you will love this place. From simple ingredients to complex combinations, you can find all types of tastes, even salty!

It’s toffee time! But not just any toffee. Get ready to taste the award-winning best caramel in France!

A Paris chocolate tour without a traditional French waffle is meaningless. This dessert, traditionally from Lille, was General Charles De Gaulle’s favorite. You will visit a boutique open since 1849 that produces thin, ever so fine waffles filled with different flavors: vanilla, raspberry blackcurrant, or even caramel.

Your next boutique is one that dates back to 1830 and has kept its delicate recipe of “calissons”: a crushed mixture of candied melons and almonds of Provence placed on a sheet of unleavened bread and covered with a thin layer of royal frosting.

Time now to travel to Brittany and taste the “kouign amann,” which means “butter cake” in Breton. The recipe becomes evident at your first bite. For Bretons, this dessert can come head-to-head with crêpes.

By now, you will have learned enough about sweets and chocolates. Your kids are ready to make their own chocolate bar! Your last stop is at a chocolate factory where a whole universe of chocolate awaits your young chefs. With a large selection of toppings, they will be able to design their dream chocolate bar! But it doesn’t end there. There is one more form of chocolate you need to taste to finish in beauty: a delicious chocolate drink that can be either warm or cold.

And if you look for a 100% chocolate-making experience, have a look at our Luxury Chocolate Family Tour & Workshop!

    This was my family’s first trip to Paris and it was stunning at Christmas time. The decorations, lights, trees, shopping and multiple Christmas markets that we visited exceeded our expectations. Each arrondissement had a unique style from quaint (Montmartre) to flashy (Champs-Elysees.) Our illuminations tour was a fabulous way to kick off our arrival in Paris, and we ended our trip 6 days later with the chocolate tasting tour in Saint Germain. Cindy with Bonjour Meet the Locals was our fabulous guide for the entire week, and we appreciated her knowledge and flexibility guiding our family throughout Paris’ top attractions.

    We booked 3 tours with “Meet the Locals”. One was the Christmas Illuminations & Christmas market walking tour, one was Montmartre Safari, and one was the Sweet and Chocolate Family Treasure Hunt. All were headed up by Natalie as our guide and she was wonderful, very attentive to our 11 year old daughter to keep her involved and focused. My favorite of the 3 was this walking sweets tour – I highly recommend it. Not only are you walking thru a very lovely neighborhood, you are being educated with all the history of the buildings and events that took place there over the decades. PLUS, all the treats you get to try are amazing! Natalie was a wealth of information about not only the things on our tour, but also any questions we had about restaurants or museums or shopping. In fact – Before we even arrived in Paris, Liz and Dominique from Meet the Locals were emailing us to assist us in making sure we knew where to be and when. They were so extremely helpful that I ended up asking them about some other tours they offer and booked an additional tour straight thru them.
    I have already recommended them to friends who are traveling to Paris in the spring, and if we were to go to Paris again, they would be the only ones I call to book any tours.
