A passionate guide - Very interesting guided tour. We learned a lot about Lyon. Nicolas is super friendly and knows his subject like the back of his hand. He has a very good sense of humor and has lots of anecdotes to tell.

A perfect guide - We just can underline the previous comments. Nicolas was our lucky hit. With his profound knowledge of the history of Lyon and France Nicolas guided us through Old Lyon and made us aware of many details we wouldn't have seen just walking around on our own. Plus - he's a very nice and friendly guy, ready to answer all your questions. We highly recommend to book a tour with him.

Good, entertaining tour - If you want an instructive introduction to the charms of Lyon old town look no further. Nicholas is a very knowledgeable and engaging guide. Even though he had a damaged arm he mamaged to show us pictures from his folder; what a trooper! Recommended!!
