We are foodies and experienced travelers on our first visit to Lyon. Alex shared the food tradition of this wonderful place, starting with artisans at the Bocuse market. Alex also gave us a taste of the silk weaving tradition of Lyon. He is knowledgeable, charming and funny and worked with us for the perfect day. He's a wonderful ambassador for Lyon. We recommend him highly.
