What people are saying about Rhone-Alpes

This is a great tour. Our guide François was knowledgeable, friendly, interesting and a very good driver. He gave us a great overview of the area as we drove through gorgeous terrain to Oingt, a delightful tiny village high up on a hill. After tasting some wine on a beautiful hill facing an amazing view in Oingt, we visited a lovely family winery, where we went out into the vineyard, tasted the grapes and learned how they tend and grow the vines. The wine-tasting afterwards was delicious, with a small snack of meat and cheese and bread. We were back in Lyon by early afternoon. It was a perfect way to get a glimpse of the Beaujolais wine and wine-making area. I highly recommend this tour.

Joseph took me on an unforgettable four-hour walking tour of the city. While he naturally showed the highlights, he focused in on those areas known particularly to locals, which is exactly what I had hoped he would do. He also has outstanding knowledge of Lyon’s history, which added so much to an already outstanding tour. I could not have seen and absorbed so much of the city without this tour. If I return to Lyon in the future, I might do it again.

We had an amazing time on this excellent food and history tour of Lyon old town. The 5 places we visited were all of exceptional quality and gave us a good insight into the gastronomy of Lyon-we loved that they were all local and away from tourist traps. Emeric was an incredibly knowledgable host and we learned so much.
