This was my favorite of all the excursions I did in Lyon. The first stop was at a church with a stunning view of rolling hills, vineyards, and a small village or two. The guide gave a lesson on the production of Beaujolais wines, and then we tasted a white wine, a rose, and a red wine, with a croissant. Next we were driven to the beautifully quaint town of Oingt and had time to explore. After this we went to a vineyard that has been in the same family for three generations, and saw a 100 year old vine that is still producing grapes. We again tasted probably 15 more wines, with bread and cheese. We also went inside the area where the grapes are processed and the wine is aged and stored. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

Es war ein schönes Erlebnis, um verschiedene Seiten von Lyon kennenzulernen und ich würde es für einen ersten Eindruck der Stadt empfehlen :) Die junge Frau, die die Fahrt auf Englisch und Französisch kommentiert hat, hat einen sehr guten Job gemacht. Ihr Französisch war größtenteils sogar für mich als relativer Anfänger verständlich und ihr Englisch war auch super verständlich. Interessante Infos :)

Brilliant way to see the area. Mike was very knowledgeable. Such a friendly person who educated us on the history of the area. Definitely advise doing this as you see more of the area and you can revisit places of interest at your own leisure after.

Great way to see the city and all the major points of interest with a local! Worth it!

Great way to explore Lyon. E-bikes are a must - lots of fun.
