Boy did we hit the jackpot! My husband and I were traveling from a week near Carcassone in a rental gite to Marseille To fly home and had several days with no planned itinerary. We decided to try a night in the charming French seaside town of Sete, famous for their water-sport of jousting, more on this later. We found... More

Sete is a small French seaport and has the typical mix of shops, parks and restaurants. What made my visit to the city memorable was the intimate and insightful Gourmet Walking Tour. Our English speaking guide, Nancy, takes great care in guiding her group to visit local merchants who will explain their food products and provide samples. Not only did... More

What a great way to see Sete. After reading reviews on TA I emailed Nancy and booked the tour. We met outside a hotel with 4 others and after a quick introduction we started the walk. We sampled oysters,sausage and gorgeous fresh cherries at the market. Nancy has built a great friendship with the owners of these shops and are... More

My wife and I were the other couple that hitman99 mentions in his review. He pretty much covered it all and did it very well. If you are going to visit Sete, do not miss this deliciously wonderful tour.

We booked this tour after reading about it on TripAdvisor, and were very glad we did. We booked the tour with another couple we met via the Cruise Critic online forum, Roll Call, as we were both passengers on the WIndstar cruise ship "Star Pride". Signing up with Nancy McGhee was painless, requires an advance deposit, with final payment in... More

Fans of great eating and real French coastal culture should really spend three hours exploring Sete, the 'Venice of the Med' at leisurely pace on Nancy's three-hour Gourmet Walking Tour. Meet top-quality merchants and sample splendid produce. Mix skillfully with quirky anecdotes on the town's roots and the experience can't be beaten as a fast-track to get under Sete's skin.... More

My friends and I took the tour and we had so much fun. The guide, Nancy, is so knowledgeable. She is engaging and passionate about the tour. It was certainly one of the highlights of our trip to the South of France.

To be honest we were not too take by Sete until we did this tour. Nancy opened up a whole new city that we would never have found. Along the way we tried local cheese, wine, oysters, muscles,cakes and fruit . The tour was very informative and in excellent English. In just over 3 hours we saw so much of... More

Originally our stay in Sete was supposed to be a convenient stop-over on our way from Barcelona to Antibes. I decided to throw this food tour into our itinerary and I'm so glad I did! My husband and I would not have thought much of Sete without Nancy's introduction to it- it's historical financial importance under King Louis XIV, its... More
