Amazing tour of Old Town
Mark_S
, Jun 2022
AMAZING tour from an amazing guide! Jorge met us exactly on time, introduced himself, and then we were off. We did the 3 hour tour, and that seemed to be sufficient for covering the Old Town area (but not anything up the hill - we had done the Fenicular the previous day). Jorge had tons of information to share about Old Town, both historical but also things only locals would know. We explored many beautiful traboules, where Jorge explained their unique architecture and pointed out neat little details we certainly would have missed on our own. Jorge was very willing to take some pictures for us so that our whole family could be included. Last, but certainly not least, he gave us a few excellent recommendations for local eateries, not just places you’d find on Yelp. The food was great! He also had us try a local specialty bread that was awesome - again not something we would have tried had it not been recommended by Jorge. Overall Jorge blew away all expectations we had. He went above and beyond in every way during our tour. If you are visiting Lyon we would whole heartedly recommend Jorge to be your local guide!

Lovey old town with hidden treasures
Xuan_w
, May 2022
It was great to see all the hidden passways in the old town and Joseph gave us quite some historical info about the churches and how people lived here before. We were able to get a feeling of the city in two hours and now have an idea about where to explore more during the rest of our stay. Highly recommended.

Jorge was a phenomenal tour guide for Lyon, France. It was just what we wanted- a friend to show us around the city. He stayed late with us to make sure we saw all the spots on his list. One of the best tour guides we've ever had!

Good tour, but we didn’t have the time to walk through the covered secret walk ways. I felt if we hurry up a bit at the beginning, maybe we could cover that

Got a personalized, private, guided tour for a group tour price.

Our local guide Jorge was excellent. Prior to meeting, we communicated via email and WhatsApp to agree on a meeting place and what sites / neighborhoods we were interested in visiting and learning about on our tour. He met us promptly at the time and location of our choosing and took us to the sites we wanted to see while providing insights and background along the way. Beyond that, he even assisted us with using the metro and provided dinning recommendations (and even called the restaurant to made reservations for us).
