Well worth the time and cost. We learned so much from Michael, our guide. We definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to learn about Lyon and it’s history. Did you know that the first film in the world was made in Lyon in the 1900’s…..a snowball fight. Our guide showed it to us as we stopped to learn about the oldest Italian building in the old ville of Lyon!

Great experiences with Mikhaïl, he is passionate about his profession, and especially about the city of Lyon, which he gently introduces us to, and certain little corners such as the traboules that we would never have seen without him. I recommend this activity. He also advised us of a restaurant, the Saint Vincent, where we spent the evening and above all had a great time with his staff. Sandrine and Lionel

An excellent activity, very instructive and enriching on a historical level. The explanations of our guide Mikhail were clear and full of anecdotes on the creation of the city of Lyon over time and eras. We recommend this original activity without hesitation! Many thanks to Mikhail for his kindness and sympathy!
