A very nice gastronomic tour in Lyon

We had a very nice gastronomic tour where we learned a lot about the typical Lyonaise food; cheese, charcuterie, bouchon, and deserts. the guide was VERY professional and knowledgeable with the food scene and also the history of Lyon. the people we met were very kind and experts in their fields and the old city is beautiful. The only problem was the heat (40c) at this specific day that made the tour more exhausting...

Excellent tour of old Lyon.

We had a lot of fun on the tour. We were shown shops that we never would have encountered on our own and had information learned on other sites confirmed. We even returned to a couple of the shops to make some purchases. Our only disappointment was that we couldn't possibly eat all the food presented to us. Our guide, Pauline, (I'm hoping I'm remembering her name correctly) was quite charming and informative.

Pauline could not have been better. Great attitude, informative, personable, helpful. Great service. The reason why we reduced the rating by one star was the seating at the restaurant. It was terribly cramped to the point of being uncomfortable having to sit so close to someone else, including one’s spouse. The cellar part of the restaurant where we were seated (narrow stairs downstairs, not so good for anyone with a walking disability) was empty, so it would have been easy to add another table, making all of us more comfortable to enjoy the food and experience. We recommend the tour and are glad to have done it. All the vendors were enthusiastic and informative and the food was plenty and tasty. Merci Beaucoup, Pauline!
