GREAT! We were Pierre's only people on the tour. When he discovered we were really interested in street art, he elaborated on some really cool pieces. We so appreciated the insight. Pierre covered so many topics about Lyon and answered our many questions. Our three day stay was just not enough and he enabled us to better appreciate the city and culture. Then, there was the food! I thoroughly enjoyed the "street food", but it was from great restaurants. Most of all the explanation of its evolution was fascinating. We had a great time and so appreciate the extra time Pierre gave to us. Do not hesitate....take the tour and hope for Pierre.

Tour was excellent; our guide, Yan, was very knowledgeable & provided great onsite on our food tour & delivered with such passion. He ‘went the extra yard’ throughout the tour giving us a glimpse of where Lyon has come from to where it is today - the history & influences that have made Lyon whst it is today

Visit the main points of interest in one afternoon: Very interesting chrono top, great historical information and 5 to 10 min walk between each point You can even stop halfway for lunch or go to souvenir shops, the stage 5 is right in Vieux Lyon

Carolina was an amazing guide with fantastic local knowledge about Lyon. She opened the city up for us. The food and street art was great and her recommendations were spot on. Thoroughly recommend it.

Very enjoyable! Well spaced, good info and good company. Would highly recommend this!
