I fell in love with the former 3 Gauls Capital 20 years ago as I met my husband.
For 7 years I have been welcoming and guiding many kind of visitors such as retired people, whole families or school groups of various ages and levels. As I can speak many differents foreign languages, it is a real pleasure for me to welcome English or German speaking travellers. And of course as a French citizen, my mother language is French.
Guiding in Lyon offers a wonderfull opportunity to show aswell the extraordinary rich architecture since the Middle Ages, as to discover classical Fine-arts or modern museums. As the French capital of Gastronomy Lyon proposes an incredible range of fresh products and amazing restaurants. My major pleasure is to tell visitors the story of that typical regional tradition of gathering and eating together in our small "bouchons" restaurants.
I am fond of sharing and transmitting my love for whatever makes France and especially Lyon such an amazing place to be! I can't wait meeting you soon.
A Recent Review of this guide
Sophie was a fantastic guide. She is knowledgeable, kind, and warm. We saw so much in a short time but did not feel rushed at all! She found us a fabulous restaurant at the end and made sure we were seated. She obviously loves her home and shared her passion for Lyon. It was a perfect tour for our group.
I passed my degree to become an international licensed tourist guide (card number GC1393024P) in 2012 at Marne-La-Vallée University (near Paris). With my degree I'm able to propose visits anywhere in France aswell in Lyon where I am settled now for 7 years as in Paris, a city I know much.
I have a driving license since 1989 and able to guide driving if needed.
As a former flight attendant I am skilled in providing first-aid help, which can be usefull in case of faintness.
No restrictions concerning the visits I propose except my Private Tour in The Covered Market of Lyon not available on Mondays as many restaurants and shops have their day off.
