A Recent Review of this tour

Mari is great. She knows Lyon very well and in a 1-day, 7.5-hour tour, took us to many very important Lyon highlights. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Lyon and France in general and answered all of our questions. We had a great experience and highly recommend her!
