Lyon city walk with Annick was absolutely delightful: she showed us wonderful places in the old town that we would never be able to discover on our own, since they are not even in guide books. Annick is very knowledgeable about the history of her lovely city. Overall, it was a great experience- thank you, Annick!

We wanted to make an “out-of-frame” tour to discover the traboules. A big thank you to Christine who perfectly met our expectations by offering us a friendly and full exchange tour of the traboules in the old town. From the contact (reactive and efficient) to the end of the ride, everything is perfectly unfolded (even the weather and ice …). It was great and to renew, thank you!

We really enjoyed our walk in Lyon with Marie Claire. We were able to discover the neighborhoods of the peninsula, Saint jeans and Fourvière with a pleasant, smiling and available Greeter who knew how to share the love of his city. With the discovery of traboules, beautiful courtyards and medieval staircases, our visit to the centre of Lyon was complete. Thanks to Marie Claire and the Greeters of Lyon.
