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!

A quite exceptional guide, close to people, available, creating a beautiful friendly atmosphere in the small group that we formed. Beyond the gastronomy, a real fascinating and never off-putting historical overview within everyone's reach, well done, I fully recommend this great activity. For my part, I took this tour at the end of my stay and I think it was even better, it makes you want to come back

Our tour was outstanding. Vincent, our guide, took us to different parts of the old town of Lyon to introduce us to the food of Lyon. We learned about the culinarily history and political history of Lyon. Comfortable, enjoyable, well organized are some of the words I would use to describe the tour.
