It is a great idea. Our second time using this service. First time in Istanbul 3 years ago. We like it since it is a private tour, we plan the time and content according tour needs. The guide picks us from our hotel and we go. Joanna was very good. The tour was well organized. She is full of knowledge and interesting information about Lyon that made our first time visit to Lyon much more clear and easy to go around.

We had a very interesting walk with Johanna. She was friendly, knowledgeable and spoke good English. She walked at a comfortable pace and chose an inetresting route through Vieux Lyon. She showed us places we would not have discovered on our own. All in all an enjoyable couple of hours!
