What you'll do

Our Secret Food Tours: Lyon, will introduce you to a wide range of delicious local French dishes.

Many consider Lyon to be the world capital of gastronomy. This is largely due to the famous "Mères Lyonnaises" (Lyonnaise Mothers). Many of the recipes found around the city have been unchanged from their humble beginnings. You'll get the chance to taste our culture and history and everything about our way of life that has turned Lyon into the culinary hub it is today.

By the end of the tour, you'll have tasted some of Lyon's most delicious bite and will have gained a better understanding of French culture and history.

All the food will be served with quality wines. A thoughtfully curated Upgraded Drinks Package is available.

Due to the nature of creating a well balanced and thoughtful gastronomy experience, many of our tours are unable to accommodate certain dietary restrictions. Please contact us prior to booking your tour to see if we are able to accommodate your dietary needs.

  • We'll begin our tour by walking the old paved streets of the Vieux Lyon area. We'll make our first stop in an exclusive sweet shop where you'll sample a delicious local pastry.
  • We'll cross the Saône River, and make our way to the Presqu'île district. You'll discover amazing monuments, statues, and fountains along the way.
  • For our next stop, you'll taste a delicious seasonal hot dish.
  • It wouldn't be a Lyon food tour without some local cheeses. We'll taste some as we stop at a historic monument.
  • As with all our tours, there's our delicious Secret Dish.
