We have created this yummy tour like a gourmet Tour de France of Pastries and Chocolate. During this tour, you will be introduced to various sweet regional prides, all while enjoying an entertaining treasure hunt in the historical Marais district.
Along the way, our young gourmands will be challenged by riddles to find the place where a mouth-watering tasting awaits you. Don’t worry, you won’t miss a stop, our
gastronomy expert will be there to give you clues if necessary! At the end of the treasure hunt, your reward: a chocolate fondue!
All aboard! Buckle your seatbelts because we are off!
Can you imagine a better start than entering the store of a fine chocolate artisan whose production comes directly from the homeland of French chocolate: Bayonne (in the Southwest of France)? Their specialty is the manufacture of chocolate in the form of plates. Next stop in the treasure hunt: Lille (in the north of France). Get ready to taste meringue like you have never tasted it before.
Trust us- this marvelous meringue and whipped cream delicacy is a light concoction that will blow your mind- and your taste buds! The only difficulty will be deciding which of 6 decadent flavors to choose!
Now let’s go to Puy-de-Dôme (centre of France) to discover the ‘macaronette,’ a delicious variation of the traditional macaron recipe. This pastry combines an almond tart base, a pastry filled with fruit and a smooth cream. The hardest part will be to choose among the 12 flavors!
Do you love chocolate as much as we do? If so, you will be amazed by the production of this multi-awarded chocolate maker. Here you will enjoy a bite of heaven in the form of a delicate bonbon full of chocolate flavor. Now on to Alsace! This eastern region of France has been a melting pot for French and German cultures for centuries, developing its own unique specialties. We are happy to introduce them to you! Get ready for a ‘kouglof:’ an Alsatian bundt cake.
Your next stop will bring you to the ‘pope’ of macaron. This Parisian specialty is famous all over the world and let’s face it, we understand why. Honestly, how to resist this tender crunchy shell made from ground almonds that hosts a rich and tasty cream? Here you will be tempted by this delicacy available in various flavors, from classics (vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, lemon, coffee…) to less traditional (rose, passion fruit, rhubarb, orange blossom…).
For a change of scenery, your treasure hunt will take you to Bordeaux (west of France ). While you may know this region for their wine, your kids will get to know it for its canelés, a mini cylindrical cake traditionally flavored with vanilla and rum. This Bordeaux specialty will amaze you with its caramelized crust and its moist, spongy center.
And now let’s finish off your yummy tour with a sumptuous chocolate experience: a chocolate fondue!
First you will be offered to taste which chocolate (6 flavors, both classic and gourmet) you want. Then you will need to decide whether you prefer fruits or cookies to dip in the hot chocolate sauce. This last stop is indeed a heaven for any chocolate lover! Yummm!

Is this tour suitable for those with gluten or nut allergies?
Unfortunately, this tour is not suitable for those with gluten allergies. Some regional delicacies just have a tradition of gluten! Have a look at our Sweet and Chocolate Tour for a gluten-free experience. If you have a nut allergy in your family, we can adapt this tour to suit you- please contact us, but be aware that any tasting could contain traces of nuts, as products are made in the same workshops alongside nut products.
Can we adapt this tour to feature savory regional specialties as well?
Of course! Your wish is our command. Please contact our superhero squad so we can create a tour just for you that mixes salty and sweet to take your taste buds all around France.
Can we buy some of the sweet treats that we try?
Absolutely, we hope you enjoy the tastings so much that you want to take some of them home with you!
Does this tour involve a lot of walking?
We admit this tour does involve a bit of walking, but it is totally do-able. Le Marais is a very flat neighborhood, and the walk between the many stops will be a much-needed break to chew whatever sweet you just picked up!
What if it rains or snows?
Our tours run rain or shine! Every stop is in a covered shop, and our “Mary Poppins” guides will do their best to keep you out of the rain/snow along the way.
What if we are more than 6 people?
Just advise our superhero squad in your request form about the number of people in your party, as well as their category (adult or child), so we’ll be able to tell you about the extra fee per additional person.
