The tour was good and true to the name it would be best suited for the chocolate obsessed. And my kids are absolutely chocoholic. Our guide was wonderful and she clearly loves her job. She was informative with just the right mix of history, French culture and everything chocolate. Worth every penny.
My husband and I and our two children did a chocolate tour while in Paris…we really enjoyed the experience and the food. My children truly grew to understand and appreciate the different approach to food that Europeans, in general, embrace so earnestly.
