Sweet Walking Tour in Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Have a typical French sweet tasting in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods of Paris. Formerly mostly appreciated for its beautiful fashion shops, Saint-Germain des Prés has extended its charm with beautiful cafés including Les Deux Magots, Café de Flore or even the Brasserie Lipp. Not to mention its experimental art boutiques and cinemas!
Are you keen on macaroons, pastries, biscuits or butter cream? We do too! With this very sweet Tour in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, eating sweets is not a crime and instead we encourage you to enjoy all delights. Scheduled in the program are cream puffs, waffles, macaroons, éclairs, marmalades… and few more regional pleasures. 😊
You will begin your tour by visiting the brand whose pastry cook had the brilliant idea in 1930 to produce and sell macaroons. You will taste them from the best source!
The quest for your favorite cream is up next! It is time for you to understand the real meaning behind “crème de la crème”. A fresh cream puffs boutique gives a revival to 16th-century puff creator! Choosing a flavor will be the hardest task of the afternoon. Do you prefer vanilla, chocolate, lemon or the seasonnal savor changed twice a month. Next cream experience will offer the widest Parisian array of Eclairs stuffed with unsual perfumes!
Another traditional delight awaits you: waffles created in the North of France during the 18th century. Their honeycombed surface hides a vanilla heart so tasteful that former French President Charles de Gaulle was crazy about them!
When it comes to the “Calisson” of Provence, in spite of numerous attempts, no agreement could be found about the origin of its name. However, all Parisians agree that every time you bite one, you want another one. Difficult to argue with a full mouth… you’ll see!
You will end your tour with any digestive drink you desire! Coffee, Tea, Juice, you name it!
Is this tour suitable if I’m vegetarian?
Yes, if you’re veggie, this tour is absolutely suitable for you. If you’re vegan, it’s not recommended because a lot of chocolate bites mix chocolate with dairy products!
Is it mandatory to taste everything at every stop?
Of course not! Don’t hesitate to inform your Welcomer if there is any particular food you dislike or would rather avoid! He/She would be very happy to find you alternatives!
Is it okay if I take my children with me?
Kids love sweet! They would obviously very much enjoy this Sweet Tour. We would be very happy to meet them in any way 😊
