I have been a tour guide for many years and I just love the city of Lyon. It is such a nice place to live and I get to tell people everyday what I love about it. On my free tours, I love to talk about what makes Lyon special, it's history and culture.
Lyon has many nicknames. It was the Capital of Gaul during Roman times. People still call it La Capitale de La Résistance. And of course, it's La Capitale de la Gastronomie. So I have so much to talk about: the Bouchons, Paul Bocuse, Emperor Claudius, the Traboules, Klaus Barbie and the Résistance, Silk, Jacquard and so much more!
Book now for free, and after, if you liked the tour, you could leave a tip to thank me! I enjoy answering all the questions you might have, before, during or after the tour. Email me, call me or send me a message and I'm happy to help in any way I can.

My Free Tours of Lyon sell out fast sometimes, so better reserve your spot now! I'll send you a confirmation and also an email with all my tips for things to do in Lyon, where to eat and practical information.
You can also just show up, but check the schedule to see if the tour is sold out or closed.
