A group of 5 of us from 3 different countries did the tour and we really enjoyed it. Sylvie managed the group really well, translating from French to English with ease. One of our group had done the tour previously and got as much out of it this time as the last. We would highly recommend it.

Sylvie was very personable and knowledgeable and made an effort to know about us. She dealt well with the commotion of the Fête Des Lumières and the impending grève. The visit at the end with Jerome was delightfully unexpected and so informative. We loved it!

Sensacional o passeio. Além de termos sido super bem informados, terminamos num happy hour na casa / associação do guia, com especialidades locais. Ele tb não se importou de passar do horário. Tudo isso tornou a visita realmente especial.

That was a great fun. You can not get it through Wikipedia or books. It worth to look at Lyon from Jerome's perspective because it's unique and elegant.
