You will meet our guide in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and together, you will stroll through the streets of this lively Parisian neighborhood, in the left bank of Paris.
You will begin your visit at a chic tart boutique to savour one of Brigitte’s Bardot favorite 'Choux a la Creme'. Afterwards, you will go into a classic Paris bakery where a silky-soft macaroon will be offered to you. You will be amazed by the multi-colored macaroons presented in the boutique, each color representing one flavour.
While walking through the streets, the guide will give you some commentaries on the monuments you will pass by, and will explain the importance of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in the Parisian cultural and intellectual life.
You will enjoy a great chocolate and creamy caramels experience at a world famous chocolatier. Stepping into this fancy boutique will be a feast for the eyes - its chocolate wonders are creatively displayed and are sure to get your mouth watering. You will then taste delicious waffles made with butter and Madagscar vanilla, one of the specialties of Lille (northen city of France).
You will then discover a particularly decadent French classic, kouignettes, and learn the secrets of how they’re made.
Last but not least you’ll visit a profiterole specialist to top off your devilishly decadent outing.
