Tour was in a small bakery that produces a high volume of baked goods each day. Tour guide knew English but the bakerys manager and a few of the French-speaking tour participants did most of the talking, in French. Info shared by tour guide was very basic. If you know anything about baking bread, find a different way to enjoy Pariss wonderful baking tradition.
This was a really great tour choice for us and we highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in gaining a hands-on experience into a typical Parisan Boulangerie ! Always wondered how they make those delicious baguettes,croissants and other yummy bake goods. I was able to take a picture of the actual recipe for the baguettes they bake at this bakery. Book this tour you will not be disappointed.
We spent an interesting hour watching how baguettes are prepared and baked in a fairly modern boulangerie. Our guide, Mariette, was delightful and the baker was keen to show us what he does. However, we didn't get to try a baguette afterward, only some small pieces of sweet pastries. I see on my confirmation that a baguette and a croissant were included in the price but that seems to have been overlooked.
