Overview

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!

And if you look for a chocolate-making experience, have a look at our Chocolate Making Course!

Please note that our stops may vary depending on the days and hours of operation of the shops, but the number and variety of tastings are always respected to ensure the best possible experience.

FAQ

I have nut or gluten allergies, may I join this yummy tour?

We will do our best to choose testing that are nut free and gluten free. However, be aware that there could be traces of nuts as all products are processed in the same workshop.

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.

    I started planning this itinerary with Dominique, the owner, several months before we traveled and she was a pleasure to work with, and incredibly knowledgeable. We spent 4 action packed days with our guide Christelle and had a great time. Our visit started with a van tour which was a great way to get an overview of Paris. Our first day ended with a treasure hunt geared to our 11 year old in the Louvre and it was the perfect way to keep his interest. The next day we did a fabulous walking tour through Montmartre and did a food tour for lunch. WOW! We closed this full day with a visit to the Musee D’Orsay and saw the wonderful impressionist art. The next day, New Years Day, we met Christelle at the Eiffel Tower and went to the summit. Unfortunately, it was foggy day but the experience was still awesome. We finished our 4 days in Paris with a chocolate and sweets tour in the Marais and what a climax it was…the pastry and the chocolate were beyond words… just delicious! Having the support of Dominque and Christelle throughout our visit was so incredibly helpful… we could not have done half of what we did without their help. I highly recommend Meet the Locals in France, especially Christelle who was so very knowledgable and personable. It was an incredible trip!

    Above and Beyond expectations. 100 out of 10! Highly recommend for families. Our sons 9th birthday and he had fantastic day. We are a family of 6, with 3 teenagers and a 9 year old and everyone had fun. Amandine was our host and she not only gave us a brilliant chocolate/pastry tour but also gave us many tips about Paris as well.

    We have not yet completed our stay or our tours, but I already know that MTL has overdelivered so much and I have no doubt that they will continue. We received so much assistance and consideration from Dominique before we ever left the US for our first trip to Paris. She helped to create a perfect itinerary for our trip that accounted for our three kids (a tween and 2 teens). From the moment we arrived, Dominique was on top of everything. She truly is Super Woman! We met Yaelle for our Notre Dame/tuk tuk/Eiffel Tower/Siene cruise tour and she was also amazing. She took great care of us, was very patient and accommodating, and even helped us secure reservations at a great restaurant for the end of the night. ??? The next day, we met Sebastian for the teen tour of the Louvre. He immediately engaged the kids and was so entertaining and informative that they stayed off of their phones for the entire two hours (a record, I assure you). Tomorrow, we head to London for a day that Dominique put together for us and that promises to be fabulous. We are also scheduled to do a walking chocolate tour and Versailles tour before we leave, but I have no doubt whatsoever that MTL will not disappoint. DO NOT HESITATE and do not look anywhere else. Meet the Locals is THE premier provider for Paris tours, bar none.
