EXCELLENT! Super Bon. What a great hour+ spent - first watching closely the baguette making process with excellent description by Agathe. Very informative and interesting and fun. Bien fait! Had my hand a creating the cuts on the top of a baguette and was presented with the same one post baking. Then downstairs to the patisserie section. Saw them decorating their pound-cake type "cakes" with lovely fruit and nuts. Described and showed croissant and pain au chocolate in progress. Great taste treats along the way. AND yes, I DID get my baguette and croissant at the end. Good interaction with the bakery employees. Very warm welcome. Would highly recommend.
NOTE: I did NOT receive the email telling me where to go and had to call the partner company.

Our guide, Aget (sp?) was so well-informed. Inside scoop on bread and pastry preparation. It's also nice to get off the beaten track and into a neighborhood. Definitely do this.

With a small group of 5 (perfect size given how small the workspace is), my 11 year old niece loved this visit and we both enjoyed the baguette and croissant takeaway we were given. The wonderful guide had to translate but the pastry chef and baker were very nice to let us watch (and take photos) as they worked and answered all questions. I am working on a post on my travel blog which will have more details and photos from our experience.

Excellent trip, so interesting to see behind the scenes and take away 'your' baguette. Agathe who conducted the tour was delightful

Our bakery tour was short and sweet, about 1 1/2 hours. We saw the inner workings of a small bakery in the 18th arrondissement and it was very interesting. Best of all, they had the best croissants we had eaten the whole 5 days we were in Paris. The baguettes were also excellent and the additional pastries we tried were delicious! We were very happy with our boulangerie experience.
