It also gives me an opportunity to act like a kid too by being goofy and telling bad, corny jokes.
A stop at a pastry shop is mandatory on all of my tours and of course the kids are delighted. I get such a kick out watching them enjoy their first chocolate éclair with the gooey filling running out of the sides of their mouth or have their first sip of real hot chocolate with mounds of whip cream piled so high it brushes the tips of their noses.
It’s so rewarding to see them marvel at the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame and other Paris wonders for the first time.
Here are some fun photos of children and families enjoying Paris on my tours.
I want to thank everyone for the positive feedback about my Grand Palais photos yesterday.
