Dear Sir or Madam,

the macaron course was good. Our guide, Marie, held it in French and English, so that we were able to follow. She did an excellent job!

However, I found it more than strange that, according to your conditions, I am obliged to accompany my child and pay 49 euros for it, but that I was not a full participant in the course. After the announcements on the Internet ("family expeirence"), I assumed that I would attend the course myself, but this was not the case. Ingredients and utensils were only prepared for my daughter and when asked I was told that this was not intended for parents.

For me, it turns out that you charge the parents 49 euros for supervising their own children and then not allowing them to participate in the actual macaron course.

I ask you to reimburse the 49 euros, since under normal circumstances I would only have booked the course for my daughter and would have stayed in the waiting area.

Kind regards

L'accueil chaleureux, par contre j'ai rencontré des difficultés pour réserver.
Je recommande vivement l'atelier, les enfants étaient très contents.
