Behind the Scenes of a Boulangerie : French Bakery Tour in Paris
Reviewed by: Penny, July 2015
Our guide, Vincent, met us promptly and was very personable. Roman showed us each step of making the delicious breads at the bakery. Then Vincent escorted us down a tight little spiral staircase to show us where the pastries and sandwiches were made. We saw how the dough for the croissants were rolled and how sandwiches from the fresh bread was assembled. While we were watching the croissants being rolled one of the workers handed us a mini cake cut into small pieces to sample...and that cake was to die for!
We all left with a warm, you heard me, warm baguette and a fresh croissant. This tour was informative and well worth the minimal fee we paid.

loved it, very interesting and worthwhile! we were in a group of 8 and found it a bit too tight of quarters as we were all squeezed in. Loved our guide Roberto. Great authentic experience of how a bakery operates and how the pastries/baguettes are made

This was such a great tour and insight of the bakery. Being able to watch them actually make and bake the baguettes and croissants made it more meaningful and then to taste the products afterwards was amazing. The guide was very informative and able to answer all the questions we had.

Great experience even for owners of a U.S. bakery.
