A Recent Review of this tour

Alex was great, what a difference it made to learn the history of the city while exploring. We were a family of five with two children, 5 and 7 years old. Alex was great with the children and kept them engaged throughout the day. We did a tour of some city highlights with some wine and cheese tasting, chocolate tasting, and finished with an education on the silk history in Lyon while enjoying a glass of Champaign. Highly recommend Alex and if you are a foodie ask about the indoor market tour.
