Vincent was a fantastic guide. We received info on the history of old town Lyon, received multiple tastings at shops in old town and ended with dinner together. Vincent was charming and knowledgeable and I highly recommend doing a tour with him. The only problem is that I was charged about $20 dollars more than was advertised and the reference number was incorrect. I called and asked for assistance but was told this was correct even though it was 160.16 euros and I should have been billed about $180. Instead I was billed about $20 over the advertised amount and though I requested a refund of that $20, that did not happen.
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.
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.
I would have enjoyed more savory samplings. Much of the tour was dedicated to sweets.
