We loved Cybil’s Secret Food Tour!! We were met with a the orange umbrella and a great smile. Her love for the city and its food history made for interesting discussions. Her knowledge of the local culture helped answered all the questions we didn’t know we needed answering. Her personal touches like the samples of Praline and Les Coussin were very generous and appreciated. We are experienced travelers and have done many, many tours and we really enjoyed her company and pace. We highly recommend Cybil as a guide to enjoying Lyon and it’s fantastic food.
