Vincent our tour guide was amazing. He grew up in Nice, was very knowledgeable about the food and history of Nice, and has great relationships with shop owners, and is an owner of a cafe himself. The food was amazing, his stories and storytelling were spot on, and there was the perfect amount of walking. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to immerse themselves in the food and culture of Lyon.

Great walking tour of the old town with our guide Cyril. We shared some interesting facts about the city and took us to some amazing spots to sample syrup-sweetend wine and cold cuts, ice cream, cheese and chocolate. Highly recommended.

So glad I chose this tour. Was solo in Lyon with very little ability to speak French-a tour in English seemed like a safe bet. Our guide Natalie was fantastic. We learned about local foods and restaurants plus customs, culture, language, history and architecture. Her info was so fascinating I actually took notes so I could share with others. Chocolate and dark beer pairing at the end was my fav but all stops were really good. Was surprised to also get to see an active silk workshop and learn about the importance of silk to the region. Fantastic way to fill 3.5 hours, get insider knowledge, become familiar with surroundings and have a great time doing it. Highly recommend!

Such an amazing food tour! We were honored to be Paulines first customers after the lockdown and enjoyed a little different but still memorable food tour through the old town of Lyon. Pauline is a very friendly, competent and authentic tour guide. She told us a lot about Lyon’s history and particularities, showed us the hidden spots of the city and gave us some great restaurant recommendations for later. Our favorites were the silk workshop and the beer & chocolate tasting. Pauline showed us some of Lyon’s finest foods and we highly recommend her tour!

I've traveled for years and this is the first time I've ever been on a guided tour—I typically just go it alone and/or use guide books. I am SO glad I chose to do this tour though! The pacing was perfect, the food delicious, and learning about the history of Lyon through a person was far more engaging than reading about it elsewhere. I also met interesting people from different parts of the world who were in my tour group. Cyril, our guide, was lovely and was able to answer all of my questions about being in Lyon.

Great tour with a good mix of history, food and wine tasting and knowledge of the area. Our guide had a fantastic grasp of medieval history of Lyon and transferred that information in an entertaining and informative way. He also showed us some of the secret passages of Lyon and a demonstration of silk weaving that has remained the same for two hundred years.

We have a good cross section of cheese, meats, chocolate and wine.

Great tour and tour guide (Emrick?). Would recommend. A suggestion is to do this tour early in your visit so you can then use the information to enhance the rest of your trip.

Having very much enjoyed the Vieux Lyon tour in Nov 2018 we were really happy to see Pauline again when we took the this Presqu'ile version in Dec 2019. The other couple with us were also returning guests.

The food stops were all as good as last time & the vendors equally welcoming. There was a great choice of the treats that Lyonnaise food & drink can offer & we visited 3 of the places in the following days as we enjoyed what they provided so much. In particular the pan fried pieces of quenelle de brochet seved in Les Halles de la Martinière were to die for.

Pauline was again a great host & it was good to see some areas of Lyon out of the oldest part that many never visit. We'd highly recommend this tour & all we need now is another one for our return later this year. :)

What a fabulous tour! It was a wonderful sampling of Lyon’s food and beverage offerings. We learned a lot about how the foods are interwoven with the history of Lyon. Natalie was enthusiastic and provided us with great explanations and helpful suggestions for places to eat and to visit. We don’t want to spoil the surprises, so we won’t go into detail, but we highly recommend this tour. You will love it!

All around it was a great walking tour in the Old Town part of Lyon. We had sausages, wine, cheese, chocolates and bread in a small group. Our guide Almondine was wonderful sharing her knowledge of the food and town history. The sausage and cheese shops were our favorites. Traversing the small secret passages was a treat, as well as seeing a working a silk loom.
