Your entry into the exquisite world of macarons will begin in the Batignolles district, where you’ll be welcomed into your chef’s renowned cooking school and fully equipped kitchen.

Once you’ve donned your apron it’s time to jump in! You’ll be guided step by step to ensure you end up with a delicious finished product, and your chef will have plenty of techniques and wisdom to impart along the way.

Whatever your level of cooking experience, your chef is a professional who will adapt the course accordingly. You’ll certainly be in capable hands: she has trained under the best French chefs at the prestigious Lenôtre culinary school. And at the end, all that’s left is the thrill of biting into one of France’s exquisite modern classics, handmade by you! Welcome to the true flavor of Paris.
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!
