Lyon Food Tour - 69005 Lyon 5ème

A friendly warning: this article contains references to food, so reading it on an empty stomach is not recommended!

First, choose between a three or four-hour gourmet tour of Vieux-Lyon (Old Lyon) or a two-hour tour of the temple of gastronomy that is the Halles Paul Bocuse indoor food market.

To join a tour, all you need is your two legs and a healthy appetite to (re)discover Lyon in an original and fun way!

Each tour includes a number of tastings (you will have eaten your fill by the end!). On the menu, fascinating discussions with shopkeepers who share their passion and know-how, such as La Mère Richard, Colette Sibilia and Étienne Boissy (holder of the title Meilleur Ouvrier de France ­MOF).

You can enjoy no less than six food breaks in between walks through the traboules (hidden passageways). Taste regional cheeses, share a platter of local charcuterie, enjoy craft beer and local wines, and end with a delicious assortment of chocolates.

This unique experience combines a guided tour of Lyon with exceptional tastings!

Collector's original visuals and voice have made it a big hit in Lyon. It offers locals a different view of their city: more modern, more urban, and even a little offbeat. In just a few years, this guide has become the repertoire of “places to be”. It opens doors to somewhat secret worlds – just the way we like them in Lyon.
