What better way to discover a city famous for its fine cuisine than with someone who’s life is devoted to sharing that passion? Our tasting tours and cooking classes are run by French food industry professionals – from trained pastry chefs and sommeliers to authors and food bloggers. And the highlight – not only learning about the delicacies of France but sampling them alongside your local culinary expert.
Your gastronomic journey begins with a tasting in an iconic yet hidden historical North-Marais market where the freshest local produce, and regional specialties are artfully displayed from one stall to the next. You will learn how to select the best produce as you meet the local food merchants at the heart of this trendy market scene! You’ll continue for a tasting of artisanal chocolates and fruit jellies in an incredible boutique dedicated to awaken your taste buds. You can devour them right away or keep the delicious treats to savor along the banks of the Canal Saint Martin, the beautiful and historical waterway of Eastern Paris.
You’ll partake in a picturesque meandering across the footbridges of the canal, and get a thorough overview of what makes the neighborhood special as you scope out the latest new restaurants to hit the scene. If you’re ready to keep going, we’d like to take you to the tour’s highlight: a copious cheese and cured meats tasting, accompanied by some regional wines selected by passionate professionals who are revitalizing the regional flavor combos of France!
Next up is the district’s trendiest new generation boulangerie where you’ll sample a selection of the most mouth-watering bread and traditional baked goods around! You will also get a grasp of this lively neighborhood, where real Parisians live and eat out. Wine merchants, organic vegetable stalls and other specialty shops will be included, with flavorful nibbles throughout the tour. We know where it’s at, and if you allow us, we’d like to lead the way!
Romain was AMAZING!!! I will 100% be recommending him to our friends! Our Louvre tour was one of my kids favorite things we did and they said it was because of Romain.
Highly recommend. Private tour is a great way to get more personalized insights on Paris history. Guide was very knowledgeable. Will definitely use again.
We have done several tours with Localers and they are definitely worth the money! We are pretty independent travelers, but there is no substitute for local knowledge. Localers has the best guides!
I did 2 tours with Localers and would enthusiastically do more when I return to Paris. The main reason is the quality of the tours themselves, the fact they are authentic experiences, and you learn so much!
