A private tour which will tickle your tast buds !


The covered market in Lyon is the centre of French cuisine. About 60 shop keepers have been offering the best specialities of Lyon's region for decades. The upper class cooking is complemented by popular cuisine, which was once appreciated by the silk workers, and nowadays by many tourists. Lyon can pride itself on its art of living, being blessed geographically by its proximity to different farmers, varied products and a long history. Lyonnais culinary art uses its celebrity to the wealth and quality of the variable ingredients. It is the craft and creative imagination of men that raises cuisine to the rank of gastronomy.

A Recent Review of this tour

this tour shows the food markets on the street along the river Saone with really all french fresh food products directly presented by the farmers of the near and the very special food halls presenting all French food products especially of high quality, from everywhere in France, farmer products but also fresh seafood meat and cheese from everywhere in France. Testing and eating is a must and a big pleasure. Our guide explained the specialities, so we learned much about the French eating.
