Very knowledgeable and friendly guide. He chose a very nice course and answered our questions. Wonderful way to discover this pretty city without fatigue, especially for old Lyon for seniors who are not very mobile.

our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us en excellent tour. Even though it was starting to get warm, he would find cool places to stop. He even found is a great bouchon for lunch which was. air conditioned.

I highly recommend this tour! The tour guide really knows the city and shows the soul of the city. Would recommend to do this in the morning before 12h, because more things are available for tourist.

Easy booking, friendly guide who speaks our language and tells many interesting stories. Gladly again if it is offered.
