Worthwhile activity - try to do it during your first couple of days in Lyon.

Our guide was Vincent - he was friendly and knowledgeable about the history and food of Lyon. Some of the food we really liked (the cheeses, the charcuterie, the wines, and the ice cream with some pretty unusual flavor combinations) and some we were not thrilled with (the egg poached in wine sauce and the terrines), but certainly walked all around the old town area and saw some fun sights and learned a lot.

Great samplings of local foods with wine accompaniments. We started with a cheese shop and ended with coffee/tea. Plenty in between. Guide was nice and informed.

Our tour guide, Elise, gave us a wonderful tour. She was informative and enthusiastic about the food of Lyon. The food and beverage sampling during the course of the tour was a delight and a revelation as to the high quality of produce and the commitment of the producers and the sellers. The cheese was probably the best cheese we have ever tasted. We would thoroughly recommend this tour. The combination of food and history is wonderful.
