The Lyon culinary private tour
Opposite to most of the gourmet tours which take you to the tourist district or to the tourist food market, I decided to bring visitors off the beaten tracks, in the popular and family district of Croix-Rousse. There, we won't see shops for tourists but shops where "real people" go and buy.
We won't walk a lot as there are a lot of food shops next to each other. We will see some, enter in some and buy in others. We will stop in a wine shop where we will taste wine and the things we would have buy, according to your wishes.
My tour includes tasting of wine, cheese, charcuterie (cooked pork meat) and sweety part.
To digest all of this, we can stroll down the hill and its famous "traboules" (passages through the buildings) to arrive to the City hall where we will finish the tour or then we go to your hotel.
From Croix-Rousse square to the City Hall using streets, stairs and traboules.
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: We can meet in Croix-Rousse square (there's a metro going there)or directly at your hotel. It's up to you.

Depending or where we start and the dstricts you prefer to visit, we'll walk or take the public transportation.

OR to feel like a local, we can enter in the shops (butchery and cheese shop) and buy the things that you will then eat with a glass of wine in the wine shop. It will be more or less the same price depending on what you want to taste. I will of course describe you the things so you won't have surprise.
