What people are saying about Lyon

This was my favorite of all the excursions I did in Lyon. The first stop was at a church with a stunning view of rolling hills, vineyards, and a small village or two. The guide gave a lesson on the production of Beaujolais wines, and then we tasted a white wine, a rose, and a red wine, with a croissant. Next we were driven to the beautifully quaint town of Oingt and had time to explore. After this we went to a vineyard that has been in the same family for three generations, and saw a 100 year old vine that is still producing grapes. We again tasted probably 15 more wines, with bread and cheese. We also went inside the area where the grapes are processed and the wine is aged and stored. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly.

Excelente oportunidade de visitar 2 vinícolas na região de Beaujolais, numa experiência que envolve todos os sentidos: a beleza da região, os aromas das vinícolas e os sabores dos vinhos. Excellent opportunity to visit 2 wineries in the Beaujolais region, in an experience that involves all the senses: the beauty of the region, the aromas of the wineries and the flavors of the wines.

This activity was informative and fun. The guide was very well versed in not only the history of Lyon but also the music that has taken place there over the centuries. We walked through unique traboules and had delicious orange natural wine at a cool cave while listening to different sorts of music, from the Renaissance up through the techno music and EDM genres. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed our time with Baptiste. The food was great. The stops were very interesting. We got to taste a little of what beautiful Lyon has to offer.

Great tour - Didac the guide was brilliant, super friendly, knowledgable and engaging.
