We are foodies and experienced travelers on our first visit to Lyon. We wanted a guide for a taste of Lyon's neighborhoods, history and food tradition, and food markets. Clemence worked with us to customize a walking tour starting at our Airbnb on Presqu'ile, through the traboules and ending at the Saint-Antoine street market. Clemence is a wonderful storyteller and ambassador for Lyon, and gave us a great appreciation for the city's history. We recommend her highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elizabeth, I hope you had a fantastic time with your cooking class !
Martha ThomassieThibodaux, LA, United States
We were 2 senior couples looking to see Lyon through the eyes of a local. Because we have some mobility issues we asked Clemence to give us two half days walking in Lyon so we could stop for a long and relaxing lunch to rest and the explore on our own or just relax. It was perfect!!! Clemence walked at our pace. She stopped frequently and we took a coffee break and photo shoot breaks. She was very accommodating to our needs (example: we took a taxis up the hill and then walked down!!!)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martha, I am glad you enjoyed those two mornings. I had a great time with you all ! I hope you had a safe trip back home. Best wishes, Clémence.

Punctual, informed and friendly - Clemence did a great job introducing us to her city. We never could have learned as much on our own!

Clemence was an excellent guide and made us enjoy Lyon ver much. She was easy to locate by email even before our meeting, she was punctual and her Spanish was perfect. She had thorough lnowledge of the Lyon area and its history, recommending us very good places to eat and other sites to visit after the tour. She even gave us to try local specialities diring the tour as she explained their origin. I highly recommend Clemence and ToursbyLocals. It was my first experience but certainly not my last.

I would highly recommend our guide, Clemence. She was so enthusiastic and engaging, and able to answer all our questions. Despite the pouring rain as we began our tour, it soon cleared up and we had a delightful afternoon covering all of the old city on the hill and the newer below.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Patty ! I had a great time as well, it's so nice to be with visitors that are not afraid of the pouring rain... :) I hope you had a safe trip home.
Nancy KoprowskiUnited States
I had a very interesting and enjoyable tour with Clemence on 30 July 2015. She knows her native city, and based on my historical interests, she highlighted remnants of the medieval period, as well as renaissance architecture preserved and restored in Lyon. I highly recommend a walking tour of Lyon with Clemence.

Elena IzmailovaUnited States
An outstanding tour! I enoyed it very much. I would have never learned so much about Lyon, its culture and history just by myself. Clemence is a very good guide. I was traveling on business and I had very limited time. This tour made it up for my time constrains and I feel that I have been in Lyon for an extended period of time. I would highly recommnd taking this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elena, I really enjoyed this tour with you, and the sun was shining which made everything perfect. I hope you enjoyed Tokyo as well !
Excellent tour, would definitely recommend. Clemence was brilliant, did and saw a lot in the 3 hours of the tour at a relaxed pace. At the beginning of the tour I was treated at the majestic overview of the city from the Cathedral that oversees the city of Lyon. We then continued with the Old Lyon, walked through the traboules which was quite interesting, the Renaissance part of Lyon and finished at the farmer's market where I got to try all the local delicacies. No more words, brilliant.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you so much Maria and I hope you enjoy your stay in Lyon !

Excellent tour! We were able to customize our tour and Clémence did a great job matching sightseeing to our interests. We started at Fourviere and walked to the Roman Theatres, Vieux Lyon, and ended in Place des Terreaux. We learned so much and found Clémence's commentary very interesting. We would highly recommend a tour with Clémence for anyone traveling to Lyon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a really nice time with the four of you, the weather was excellent, it was a great afternoon ! I hope you really enjoyed the rest of your stay in France. Best wishes.
