The food tours through the old town of Lyon was a great experience! We learned a lot about the city of Lyon, the French tradition, the French themselves and their way of life and were able to try different specialties. Our guide knew his way around perfectly and knew how to entertain and excite the group! The only suggestion for improvement: the selection of the dishes was very sugar-heavy with several (very) sweet samples and desserts in succession, a little more variety would have been nice (therefore only 4 out of 5 stars). Otherwise: top!

Vincent was engaging and knowledgeable about the area and had deep history of Lyonese cusine. We broke break at a renowned boulangerie, tasted praline, some of the best charcuterie and the wine flowed generously. We got see the historic parts of and explore some areas we would have definitely not found on our own. Great experience.

This is a nice general tour. You learn a little bit about Lyon's local food and local history and see sights in Old Town like the church, some important squares and a couple of passageways. Our guide Vincent spoke great English. We chose to go on a Sunday morning in August to avoid crowds and that worked out well. There was just enough walking, eating, drinking and learning over the course of three hours, it was a nice pace.
