Gil was a superb guide. Her English was excellent and she made sure we covered our particular areas of interest. I can highly recommend this tour--it's a great way to get your bearings and helps to put everything about this extraordinarily beautiful city into context.

Matthew provided an interesting and in-depth look at some of Lyon’s historic sites. It does not include the area of Fourvière, but only Old Town and a part of the Presqu’île. Matthew is personable and, while he struggles a bit with his English, makes a noble effort.

We booked a 4 hour tour of Lyon for our party of six. Our guide was excellent! Although she is originally from Russia, she spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited in Lyon. She spend a lot of time with us in the Fourviere cathedral, the Roman ruins, traboules, and took us to a silk makers shop where we received a demonstration from a master silk weaver.
