We were so happy that we had Nancy show us her favorite gourmet treats while we were here. Many guests on our boat got off and walked around, but got right... More

We enjoyed the town and the scenery and the FOOD because Nancy was so familiar with all the intimate details of this charming off the track community. The bakery, the cheese the market-place, the wine... all were great because of her in-depth knowledge. Would go again and learn more!

Nancy's food tour of Sete is a "must" if you are a foodie and wine lover. We were collected near our cruise ship and Nancy not only gave us a history of Sete , but wonderful tastings of a traditional cake/biscuit shop, cheese shop (tasting roquefort cheese), a bakery specialising in Octopus pie (yummy), the indoor market tasting oysters (at...
