Vincent was a wonderful tour guide! He answered all our questions. The walking between stops was perfect! After the tour we felt like we knew what to look for in choosing a restaurant for dinner. I am now a Bouchons Lyonnaise food snob! In addition, prior to selecting this tour I was thinking about selecting the secrete passageway tour and we used them to get to restaurants. It was like we had two tours in one!

Enjoyed this a great deal. Would like a list of places visited. Would like time to shop in the stores. Could not find cheese shop again. A nice experience but would like info on places visited.

Fantastic! The guide was very friendly, had very good knowledge of the area and wines. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful experience. Food and history each in perfect amounts!

Great Service,Cedric came to meet me ... I was late!!
