I actually attended the four hour tour due to overbooking, but the guide contacted me several days before offering several options other than the time I originally selected. My guide, Vincent was extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond just food. The tastings were all amazing and covered a variety of foods and drinks. He and/or the proprietors gave a history of their store and importance of their products. Vincent brought us to the top spots in Veille Lyon, the traboules, the funiculaire for Fourviere Hill, the silk history and how that influenced the city and it's food. The quantity and quality of food and drink was incredible. Vincent's English was very good, easy to understand, and he made pleasant conversation and jokes along the tour. I suggest doing this tour the first day of a Lyon visit, simply because you see so much and go to so many places that it would be a bummer to go to a restaurant you have already been to. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!
We had a very interesting walk with Johanna. She was friendly, knowledgeable and spoke good English. She walked at a comfortable pace and chose an inetresting route through Vieux Lyon. She showed us places we would not have discovered on our own. All in all an enjoyable couple of hours!
A cultural Tasty Tour (visit of old Lyon, its history, its traboules ...) and gourmet (discovery of creative craftsmen and tasty tasting). Very outgoing guide who knows how to punctuate his explanations with humorous anecdotes and good humor. Excellent!
Our guide was very nice, an authentic Lyonnaise who listens to her customers the visit brought us a lot we returned the next day to finalize our purchases and visits that she advised us
Francois was fantastic and we had a great time understanding Lyon gastronomy.
