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.
The tour was perfect and very tasty. Magen the tour guide was very nice with a lot of knowledge and patience for all our quastions.
Our guide Pauline was amazing, so knowledgeable and friendly. The sights and the food were superb!!!
Really good experience, a little out of the normal comfort zone. Really enjoyable
