What you'll do

On our Secret Food Tour: Lyon, you'll find out why Since 1935, the city has been considered the world capital of gastronomy, primarily due to the famous "Mères Lyonnaises" (Lyonnaise Mothers). Many of the recipes around the city are unchanged from their humble beginnings, you'll have the opportunity to taste the culture and history that has turned Lyon into the culinary hub it is today.

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

  • We will start the tour by exploring the old paved streets of the Vieux Lyon area, and we'll make our first stop in one of the most exclusive sweet shops of the city to sample a delicious local pastry.
  • After crossing the Saône River, we'll then explore the Presqu'île district, discovering amazing monuments, statues, and fountains along the way.
  • You'll love the seasonal traditional hot dish at our next stop.
  • We'll discover our local cheeses as we stop at a historic monument.
  • As with all our tours, there's our delicious Secret Dish.
