Gourmet Walking Tour of Sète


Sète is a fascinating fishing town referred to as the “latin quarter” of the south of France, the “Venice of France” and the “trendiest destination” on the Mediterranean coast according to the Daily Telegraph. The gourmet walking tour of Sète was awarded the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence in 2017 and wwarded Best Holiday tour in the Luxury Travel Guide (LTG) in 2016, 2017 and recently announced 2018.

Join your English speaking host for an intimate and unique gourmet walking tour of Sète. Stroll the streets along the canals of the “Venice” of France, past historical buildings while sampling local specialities, meeting merchants and getting historical and culturals tips.

The visit will include delights such as pastry, oysters, cheese and wine. Your culinary adventure will also take you to “les Halles” the harbour’s colourful and authentic fish and seafood market.



Minimum 2 – maximum 8 guests per tour.

From 9am to 12am.

Cost is 60 euros per person.




After the food tour, visitors often like to continue discovering other points of interest in the area .   Here are a few of the options which I can arrange with a driver who is also a professional guide.

Depart for Aigues Mortes in Camargue  : this medieval fortified city with ramparts is intriguing and filled with history which your guide will be able to share with you during your tour.

Lunch in Aigues Mortes

Afternoon option 1 : a vineyard tour at a Castle followed by a tasting of their wine (the largest wine producing region in France). If he is available, the owner will personally greet our visitors for the tour.

Afternoon option 2: The best oysters in France are farmed in a lagoon near Sète using an authentic and unique method. Our visitors are personally greeted by the oyster farmer who will provide information about the traditional and unique method used to farm the oysters in a lagoon as opposed to ocean farming. You will be given a demonstration on how to shuck the oysters followed by the “art of eating an oyster” with sampling including local Picpoul wine which is ideal with seafood.

Afternoon option 3 : Get on board a private shuttle boat with skipper and zoom over to the oyster beds in the lagoon folowed by a stop at Noilly Pratt vermouth production facility (the best in the world) for a tour and tasting. I can even arrange a private tour to the “room of secrets” for a cocktail workshop with other local delicacies such as cheese, macaroons and foie gras.

Viator review: Gourmet Walking Tour of Sete France
I have M.S. and use an electric wheelchair. Our cruise was docking in Sete, Provence, France and I
searched online for an excursion that indicated it was wheelchair accessible. When I read about this
one I booked it and was so pleased

Nancy is brilliant! Her tour was the best we enjoyed while on our 24-day trip in Europe and we will recommend her to all our friends. People we were travelling with were envious when we told them how she had opened our eyes to what goes on behind the food scene in Sete,
