Alex was superb. Enthusiastic and informative, knows Lyon history, food and architecture. We were able to traverse the trabouoles and enter areas off the beaten path. Highly recommend him to for your tour. Next time we plan to do a food tour as he specializes in that.

Date: Jun 10/18

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.

Alex was passionate about the Silk business of Lyon and gave a knowledgeable and fascinating account of life during the height of the industry. We went to a very old/historic weaver and also to a modern one, and walked the back streets hearing stories along the way. Very nice indeed.

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.

Alex was one of the best guides we have ever had. He was informative, entertaining, and accommodated our needs. Not only did we get to taste a variety of foods and wine, we were given a great historical tour of Lyon. We visited the Food Hall, a wine bar, a candy store, and ended up at a silk shop learning about the local industry while drinking champagne and eating brioche aux pralines. Thanks to Alex, Lyon has become one of our favorite cities. We plan to go back next year with family and hire Alex.

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!
