This is a nice general tour. You learn a little bit about Lyon's local food and local history and see sights in Old Town like the church, some important squares and a couple of passageways. Our guide Vincent spoke great English. We chose to go on a Sunday morning in August to avoid crowds and that worked out well. There was just enough walking, eating, drinking and learning over the course of three hours, it was a nice pace.
The guide has very good knowledge in the history of Lyon, France and Europe. She was able to explain very single place, events and monuments with a great in depth information. Being in the same city and heard several versions of various events, but she cleared all the doubts and was able to inform us which really a stories and which is true.
Vincent was engaging and knowledgeable about the area and had deep history of Lyonese cusine. We broke break at a renowned boulangerie, tasted praline, some of the best charcuterie and the wine flowed generously. We got see the historic parts of and explore some areas we would have definitely not found on our own. Great experience.
Me and mu sister realle enjoyed the tour, we learned kitchen culture of Lyon, went to five shop/restaurant, met local shop keepers, got trustworthy recommendations, visited traubueles. Food was delicious. It was a introductory tour into the Lyonnaise cuisine. We are glad to participate.
