You cannot leave Lyon without doing this food tour. Our guide Vincent was very intelligent and personable. This is the best way to become acquainted with the cuisine of Lyon and Old Town Lyon. Thanks for a great day!

4-4.5 stars just because our guide was more a history buff than a foodie. We tasted cheese, meats, tastes from a traditional bouchon, chocolate, wine, dessert and a look at silk making.

Natalie was an excellent guide, bubbling with enthusiasm. The tour started with cheese and white wine, on to a bouchon for local specialities and red wine. Next a sausage maker for cold meats and more wine and then a chocolate shop for chocolate and black beer. A stop at a silk makers was followed by praline tart. A great tour full of historical facts and the opportunity to try local food without having to have a whole meal. One of the best culinary tours we have done.

Our food tour of old Lyon was such a worthwhile experience! Not only was the food delicious, but the vendors were passionate and our guide (Vincent) was outstanding! We enjoyed connecting with other people in our group and the weather was incredible (we came in the mid-May). We quickly fell in love with Lyon when we arrived but this tour taught us so much for more than just about the food we were eating. PLEASE book if you go to Lyon, it is absolutely the best!

Amandine was an amazing guide! So warm, funny, and open to questions! You'll visit a fromagerie, a wine/charcuterie bar, a chocolate shop, a bouchon as well as a cafe. There is also stops at a silk weavers store and the secret Lyon passageways that brings alive the history of the city. I highly recommend this tour to anyone!

Incredible and Edible Lyon

Vincent was a marvelous guide who was friendly, funny, and extremely knowledgeable about Lyon’s history and food culture. We visited a delightful fromagerie, an authentic Lyonnaise Boucherie, a very interesting prepared-food establishment, a Willy Wonka-like chocolate maker, and more. In addition to tasting delicious and authentic foods, we met interesting local characters who shared their home-made delicacies, and the stories behind them, with us.

What a wonderful morning we had exploring the beautiful old town of Lyon together with our exceptional guide Enrique (not sure if it’s spelt correctly 🤪). His knowledge coupled with lots of interesting facts and lovely food stops made for an exceptional morning. Would definitely recommend.

Worthwhile activity - try to do it during your first couple of days in Lyon.

Our guide was Vincent - he was friendly and knowledgeable about the history and food of Lyon. Some of the food we really liked (the cheeses, the charcuterie, the wines, and the ice cream with some pretty unusual flavor combinations) and some we were not thrilled with (the egg poached in wine sauce and the terrines), but certainly walked all around the old town area and saw some fun sights and learned a lot.

Great samplings of local foods with wine accompaniments. We started with a cheese shop and ended with coffee/tea. Plenty in between. Guide was nice and informed.
