Vincent told enthusiastically, with a great sense of humor, about the treasures of Lyon, in the field of gastronomy, drink and historical anecdotes. The secret passages, the delicious Jesus sausage, always adapted to the questions of the participants, who came from America, Germany/Switzerland and (we) from the Netherlands. Very varied, a lot of information. It was a party in the old town of Lyon. Thank you Vincent! Regards, Ruud and Maaike

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!

Our guide was very nice, an authentic Lyonnaise who listens to her customers the visit brought us a lot we returned the next day to finalize our purchases and visits that she advised us

Joseph was great. We did 3 hours tour and enjoy very much. Joseph his knowledgeable and explain about the city very well.
