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!

    How fantastic our sweet and chocolate walking tour was. We experienced stores we wouldn’t have visited if we were on our own. Marie was so welcoming, fun and interesting – made our 12 year old daughter feel so at ease. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the tour has been one of our highlights in Paris!

    Cindy and Tim were fantastic. Very personable and informative.
    Both were great with kids as well. They were able to keep our two girls (3 and 5) entertained and engaged, and accommodated their needs (ie ice cream) when they started to get “cranky. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone traveling to Paris, especially those traveling with kids. We completed three tours in all with this company;
    Louvre, Food and Chocolate Tours. We completed the Louvre and the food tour back to back with Cindy which was brilliant as our kids were ready for lunch at the end of the Louvre tour. The Chocolate tour ended with the kids having the opportunity to make their own chocolate bar, HUGE hit with our kids. Two thumbs up for these guys!!! Thank you.

    Meet the Locals group was incredible with our family while in Paris. We had a Louvre Tour with fun experiences/information for our kids and interesting historical details for the adults. We also used MtL for a Chocolate Tour around St. Germains which was as enjoyable as it sounds. Best part of all was the guides who were extremely patient, well informed, and gracious with their time. When one store on the chocolate tour was closed for 15 minutes, she independently ran back at the end of the tour to bring back the mousse for the group. We also mentioned to her that we would be going to a neighboring city in France and she provided a detailed email that night about the city sights before our arrival there. Such a generous, helpful person and it helped set the tone for our experience in Paris.

    Everything with this company has been perfect from the very beginning. I worked with Thomas to set up all of our tours, and let me tell you, working with two large families and the million questions we had was not an easy task. He answered all of them with the utmost patience and was so thorough. We booked the Family Louvre treasure hunt, Tuk Tuk ride, and Notre Dame tour along with the Family Versailles tour, and the Paris Chocolate Tour. We had two guides for the Louvre Treasure Hunt because I had to change up the day last minute and so happy it worked out that way because Laurine was assigned to the children (6, 6 and 3) along with the moms and Christelle to the other adults (4 adults). Laurine was EXCELLENT with the girls and Christelle was was just as great with the other group as well. Kept the children engaged while the adults could actually enjoy the museum and ask the questions we needed and see what needed to be seen. Christelle was then assigned to the remaining tours and we could not have been more pleased. She answered literally every single questions we had, and there were a lot. We were blown away with her knowledge and she could not have been sweeter or more kind. It was actually sad that it was all over and hope to stay in touch after we get home. I would recommend this company to anyone going to Paris. It is a MUST DO!

    Our family of 6 (kids ages 10 and 12 and grandparents too) discovered this AMAZING company!! Our flight was delayed so we did not have enough time for the treasure hunt part. But the CHOCOLATE!!! All 6 of us had a wonderful introduction to Paris from our guide, Nathalie. She was kind and knowledgeable and outstanding with the kids. Both kids got to make their own custom chocolate bar, which they thought was amazing!! We all loved getting to choose a treat at each stop. We liked it so much that we went back to several of the stops later to purchase more treats! We also have recommended this company and this tour in particular to friends and family directly! Such a fun experience!!
