This food tour was great! Great guide. We had food, wine, cheese & wine, sweeets and ice cream and a great tour experience about the city in general. Totally worth it
Excellent food tour
An enjoyable tour where we learned and tasted a lot. Our guide was charming and knowledgeable. We also loved hearing from the producers about their history and their products. Also good to be able to sit down is some places. Highly recommend.
Great tour, even if you aren’t a foodie

The tour is a bit long and the food is interesting, but not amazing. The best part by far is the tour guide, who gave us so much information about the history and local culture of Lyon. She was amazing!
The staff at the tourist office were very helpful and friendly. Our guide for the food tour Armandine was superb. Incredibly knowledgeable and witty. It was a throughly enjoyable and tasty experience.
A great afternoon
Our host was warm, welcoming, engaging and very knowledgeable, the food stops were excellent, they gave a real insight into Lyon its food, wine, beer and ice creams, alongside the access to the silk weaving which is integral to Lyon. The tour is great as you get to meet and spend time with the owners of a few of shops which again gives a real insight to the food and their passion.
Walking through the old town understanding the history of Lyon and its food goes hand in hand.
I would recommend this tour as a great way to discover the rich history and great food Lyon has to offer, we weren't disappointed.
Very lively and knowledgeable l lady, a pleasure

Thanks for this great feedback !
Very interesting food tour through Lyon
Very interesting tour to taste local pastry, cheese, meat, a fish dish, different wines and craft beer. Our guide Pauline was a very nice and well informed.
Delicious and interesting
Pauline was a delightful tour guide. She explained all about the Bouchons and introduced us local cheeses, charcuterie, pastries, tea, wine and other foods. We ate what is roughly a large lunch, but not so much that the attendees felt they would not be able to eat dinner.
A wonderful taste of Lyon
We had an amazing time being introduced to the different foods on this tour. The cheese experience was a standout - however it was all wonderful. We still talk about it many months later. This tour added an extra dimension to our visit to Lyon. Many thanks.
