LYON, Rhône-Alpes, France

Hello ! My name is Jean-Alexandre (but call me Alex !)

I am a full-time guide, holder of the professional tour guide card and I am here to offer you completely different tours because I really love my job, and it makes the difference !

Welcoming people in my 2, 000-year old Lyon and sharing my passion for yum-yum local products are my second nature. Always with the sense of humour, but very strict as far as QUALITY is concerned, I guarantee a 100% convivial experience together !

Lyon is a very fascinating city added to UNESCO's world heritage list where the variety of activities to do and landscapes to discover is very impressive : Lyon is considered as the french capital of gastronomy, it also used to be the main centre of silk production during centuries, or the capital of the French Resistance. I really love when I take my guests to weaving demonstrations where they can talk to artisans and touch the silk, or to delicious tastings for unforgettable moments of pleasure with a French in the most famous indoor market of France : the "Halles Paul-Bocuse" !

I do this job to SHARE moments with you. . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Alex was WONDERFUL He flexible about our starting location and starting time. He was charming and knowledgeable. Young and friendly. Tip: Take his tour at the front end of your visit. He is knowledgable about the whole city and has suggestions about other things to see/places to eat (and NOT eat). He also leads tours of the food halls. Only sorry we don't have time for that on this trip. Enjoy!
