Our guide was firstly 1 hour late. Then she spent the next 15 minutes looking for a place to return her bike too. Once we got underway, it was not that informative - we didn't even go into the Cathedral. The tour was to run for 3 hours and include a food tasting with transport to the food tasting. We were taken by Bus to the food tasting at which point our guide bid us farewell as she had to go meet her next group. This was after just 2 hours of the tour. We have made a complaint but been denied. The reason given by the guide being that she paid for our bus fare and food tasting and that we seemed happy when she left and that she tried to contact us to tell us she would be 1 hr late! Sorry! Not good enough! She paid for the bus fare and the food tasting and so she should as they were included in the tour. As for contacting us to let us know she would be late - im sorry but we had travelled from Australia - booked this tour before we left- we don't expect that a professional tour is going to be 1 hour late because this guide could not organise herself to get there on time - no matter what her excuse is. She did offer us to join her 1:30 tour however the morning was so poor and with only having 1 day to spend in Lyon we were better off cutting our losses and looking after ourselves. It was extremely disappointing and a waste of our time.

We took this tour in mid September 2017 with tour guide Carol. This is the same tour three others have described for September 2017. My husband and I were the only patrons on the tour. It was the most distressing and actually disgusting experience. We totally wasted our money and were treated badly. It was stressful and a bizarre experience. I could have written the other September 2017 reviews exactly. This guide should be removed and the company that provided her should not be a part of Viator. We have had only positive experiences otherwise with Viator, so we were shocked!
DO NOT....I repeat.....DO NOT book this...

DO NOT....I repeat.....DO NOT book this tour! I am not one to write negative reviews, but as a fellow traveler at heart I would not want another tourist to experience a less than sub par tour. With only 1 day in Lyon we decided to book this tour to learn more about this beautiful city and indulge in the Lyon's food culture since it' known to be the gastronomy mecca! Welp this tour was more of power walking with minimal deli meat slices at the end and a small stick of dry bread to share among the entire group. To be honest Boar's Head and Oscar Mayer meat quality is better than what we were given. Our tour guide did not seem to be very thorough with her talking points and rushed through the tour at the end. She barely paid attention to us while walking to ensure we were all keeping up. She was in such a hurry that she left us at the market 30 minutes prior to the end time and did not return us to Bellacour Place. How do you just leave your tour randomly knowing very well that none of us are from the area?! We all had to figure out a way to get back to a central location and navigate our way back. Thankfully we ran into a real local from Lyon the tour guide is not really local who was kind enough to give us directions. Although we tried to make the best of it we'll have to plan another visit to Lyon and try something else. DO NOT waste your time or money on this one!
Very disappointing. Our guide...

Very disappointing. Our guide seemed rushed and out of her element. It appears she mostly does bike tours and came dressed as such. She was very nice and tried but left us wondering what was happening. It was not much of a food tour. She took us on a walking tour of Lyon then on a city bus to the Paul Bocuse market place. We were guided to one station and given samples of meats then she said to us we had 1 hr to get back on the bus and told us where to pick it up then left! I don't consider that a food tasting. We ended up staying and having lunch then getting a taxi back. We do NOT recommend this tour!
