Quench your thirst for knowledge in the UNESCO worthy maze of Lyon. Discover the best wines produced in this region and learn the basics of wine and food pairing all the while pleasing your taste buds with local delights.

What pairs better with a local cheese than a local wine? At our first stop, we will visit le Fromager de Saint Geroges and enjoy a sample of 5 savory, local cheeses with a glass of white wine.
You will appreciate the gothic and Renaissance architecture and discover Lyon's hidden passageways.
At our second stop, Laurent will be pleased to introduce you to the wines of the Rhône Valley. After this short lesson, you'll have the know-how to impress your friends with your newfound expertise.
Moving on up, enjoy the scenic view above the city. Stretching from the Saint Jean District to the Fouviere Basilica. After a quick stop in the Basilica, you will enjoy the view above the city, a a walk in the roman ruins and have your last stop in a 4 stars palace for an ultimate wine tasting experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

Olivier provided an excellent experience for all of us. He did a nice job coving some aspects of the city of Lyon and then hoped onto our bus for a longer tour of the vineyards and wine tasting. We kept him talking for an hour on the bus and into the vineyards and small wine producers. It was a very informative but also enjoyable tour for all of us.
