The tour was absolutely wonderful. My daughters & I experienced the true essence of food & history of the city of Lyon. Amandine was an absolute delight! Her enthusiasm & explanations of all the stops made the tour that much more enjoyable!! Thank you to Fred & the cheese man (I’m sorry I forgot his name) they were funny & presentations were well done!! Merci Beaucoup!!!!

It was a very pleasant 4 hours getting to know Lyon from a local perspective and with a lot of history to illustrate. Our guide was excellent, friendly, informative and fun. There is no intention of "selling products" on our visits. By the way, an interesting aspect: they suggest that we don't buy anything during the tour, so as not to disturb the walk. If you like the products/places visited, then go back to shopping. I found a positive difference in relation to other tours: it is a cultural tour, not commercial. I strongly recommend.

A very nice gastronomic tour in Lyon

We had a very nice gastronomic tour where we learned a lot about the typical Lyonaise food; cheese, charcuterie, bouchon, and deserts. the guide was VERY professional and knowledgeable with the food scene and also the history of Lyon. the people we met were very kind and experts in their fields and the old city is beautiful. The only problem was the heat (40c) at this specific day that made the tour more exhausting...
