Nancy met us from our Cruise ship. We had a lovely morning walking around beautiful and unspoilt Sete. The tour was very interesting and the food was lovely. Liked the town so much we're considering going back there for a holiday!

Please note, the vendors you visit get paid at the end of the month for the food used for the tasting. Special treat at the baker. We all loved it.

Take this tour as early as you can during your stay in Sète so you can take advantage of all the foodie intros Nancy gives you. Skip breakfast and fill up on a morning of nibbles, wine and a smattering of local history.
