Tour: #186437, Vienne, gallo-roman and medieval city, Vienne, France    view tour
Date: Sep 20/18

Our trip to Vienne with Emilie was everything I had hoped for. Cannot believe how much she managed to show us in a very brief amount of time. Her knowledge of the history of the area is impressive. She also gave us some ideas as to other things to see while in Lyon....and perfect directions for taking the Metro to return to Musee Des Beaux Arts. We were fortunate to spend time with this lovely person! She is a tribute to Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: To tell you just thank you would not be enough to express my gratitude. I had loved to show you Vienne and to explain you this nice town I like. This time with you is perhaps a proof that I have chosen the proper job for me. So thank you again.

Date: Aug 10/18

Emilie was a lovey tour guide. She was completely open to customizing our tour and it was perfect. I must have emailed with her 10 times and she was always prompt in replying and very helpful. We had all ages from 10-72 family and friends, different interests and fitness levels and she made it great for all. She did our tour in English and no problems understanding her. Her vocabulary and knowledge of the topics was extensive. We would highly recommend Emilie to anyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kelly, Thank you very very much for you kind review and message. I really appreciate it. It is so good to meet people like you. I wish you all the best and hope we could meet again somewhere someday. Best kind regards, Emilie

We had a great day with Emilie on our visit to Lyon. For starters we were very grateful for Emilie responding to our very last minute request for the tour. Emilie took us to some lovely sites and hidden away places throughout the city. Emilie was also very accommodating to our personal requests and interests. Would definitely book a tour again with her and recommend Emilie to friends and family.

We had a wonderful 4 tour with Emilie of the city highlights of Lyon. There were a list of items I requested to see along with the traditional items and she fit them all in. Lyon is a large city and to maximize your time with Emilie I would suggest you have her rent a driver and vehicle and not just limit yourself to a walking tour. Emilie is very knowledgeable about the history of Lyon. Her English is excellent. I would highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great review ! thank you very much. I really appreciate it. I 'm so glad to have met you. Perhaps see you soon. Best regards, Emilie

Tour: #128098, A grand day out in Lyon, Lyon, Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, France    view tour
Date: Oct 19/17

Emilie gave us a great introduction to Lyons. She met us at our hotel and, after a briefing on the city, we visited the Basilique Notre Dame de Fourviere; the panorama of Lyon from there put everything else in perspective. Then, to the Old Town and then back across the Saone to the Peninsula. Without Emilie, we would not have discovered a lot of things - for example, the courtyards - on our own and the tour set us up well for the rest of our stay. Good restaurant recommendations too. Thanks Emilie!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review, I really appreciate it.

Tour: #114173, Lyon on the hill: the Roman history, Lyon, Auvergne Rhône-Alpes, France    view tour
Date: Sep 23/17

We very much enjoyed our visit to Fourviere Hill area. After a magnificent view of Lyon, the majority of the tour was spent in the Gallo-Roman Museum. Emilie's in depth knowledge of the artifacts in the museum enriched our visit far more than what one might get with an audio guide and the posted English descriptions. We felt this was time well spent. We then visited the remains of the Theatre and the baths. Emile is a wonderful guide and has made herself available for any follow up recommendations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Kim, Many thanks for your kind review. I really appreciate it and thank you for the attention you had during the tour. All the best to you and see you soon in Lyon.

We had a bit of a hiccup upon arrival as we had involved a third party (my husband's Assistant) and we had thought we were having a van tour as a very important part of visiting Lyon was to show our two teenagers the street art. Emilie was not aware of this but quickly adjusted the tour to meet our needs. In the end everything worked out perfectly. Emilie was incredibly flexible and her knowledge of the Lyon, the history and Art Scene (not only the Street Art) is very, very impressive.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review. I truly appreciate it. I like meeting open-minded people who have a lot of interest like you, thank you for your attention. I hope you keep a nice memory of Lyon, and perhaps, we meet again there. All the best to you and to your family.

Emilie was a superb guide for out tour of Lyon. Knowledgeable, friendly and very well prepared, she made our visit both fun and educational. She made sure we were seeing what interested us and, with her own maps and drawings of Lyon, had an answer for us no matter where the conversation took us. The 4 hours went by very quickly yet we felt we received a great overview of the city. She also gave us a great recommendation on the "bouchons" of Lyon which only added to the positive experience. Merci Emilie!

Absolutely exciting morning. As a gastronomic enthusiast we were absolutely exited to have Emilie as our tour guide to the Paul Bocuse Market where we were delighted with tastings of the local produce. Emilie is highly recommended and Emilie is full of knowledge about the culture of food and the background to the stalks. Great tour and a must for anyone coming to Lyon

Our family had a lovely tour with Emilie walking through Lyon's old town. Emilie was gracious, knowledge and easy to understand. From booking the tour to the tour itself our experience was both pleasant and easy. Emilie send a map of where we would meed which led us to exactly the right spot. My husband and I took the tour with our 15 yo daughter and all of us were happy with Emilie. She was very knowledgable about the city and it's history and seemed to have a love of her job.

Our family loved this tour! Emilie was very helpful before the tour in arranging for transportation, and we were delighted by her knowledge of Lyon, friendliness, and genuine enjoyment in showing us around. Her English is fluent, and her love of Lyon was apparent. We had one person with limited motility, and Emilie made the tour doable for her, while at the same time inclusive and thorough for everyone else. I recommend Emilie highly.

Emilie was very informative about the history of Lyon. Our trip to the Les Halles Market was a great way to assimilate into the fabric of the Lyonnaise people around the topic of every type of food enjoyed by the locals. She easily answered a variety of diverse questions asked by the people in our group. Our afternoon visit to the Renaissance Quarter was like opening a treasure trove of history. I would definitely recommend her for future visiting groups. Additionally, she was very personable and upbeat.
