Reviewed by: Jesse R, November 2015
It was great. The tour guide was friendly, smiley and warm. We got to the watch the bread be made and take home a baguette. We also got to see the inner workings of pastries - -chocolate croissants! Would recommend this to anyone for a quick peek into the world of bakeries and some history too e.g. bakers cannot go on strike.

Very informative and enjoyable ! Our children had a go at rolling their own baguettes and found the experience worthwhile and engaging. They had lots of questions for the staff who answered them knowledgeably and with great patience. We all enjoyed sampling the cakes downstairs and our goody bags of baguettes and croissants kept us going for a couple of days.
Would definitely recommend .

Super interesting. Spent about an hour in the kitchen watching the bread being made and learning the process. Ended with a yummy tasting! Great tour guide!

The guide is very knowledgeable and friendly. She gave us great information and insight into the methods of bread baking as well as the history of bread making in France. Really great experience. They also let you sample different types of breads they make and you leave with a baguette and croissant

It was great and I would highly recommend the tour, especially for anyone who likes to cook or loves French bread. Very educational but fun at the same time. We took our loaf of breads and croissants to a park, along with some meat and cheese and wine, and had a picnic!! The bakers at the Boulangerie were very pleasant and fun. It's a 10!!

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.
