What other guests say about our tours and locals
"We had a great time with Elisabetta and learned so much about Lyon’s history. We explored the old town and many nice spots we wouldn’t have found ourselves. We had our 2 children with us and she made the tour enjoyable for them with illustrated historical cards without it taking away at all from our experience. We loved the cards too. She gave us many recommendations after the tour for a variety of good places to eat, drink, etc. Happy we booked with Elisabetta. "OliviaAbout local ElisabettaLyon, September 2023

Fantastic Lyon Tour with Elisabetta
"We had an excellent tour with Elisabetta. I had notified her only the day before that we had already had 2 walking tours of Lyon and asked if she could modify our itinerary to reduce duplication. In spite of the short notice, she brought a list of suggestions and we selected new experiences, though to be fair we did walk past some previously seen monuments which she told us new information about! Elisabetta was very relaxed, pleasant and knowledgeable. Even though we had some slower members of our party, she did not rush the experience and even spent extra time with us to make sure we had a good experience without any mention of money or tip! Needless to say we tipped extra. Highly recommend this tour with Elisabetta. I believe she also has a food tour and if its as good as the confection shop she showed us on our tour, I'm sure that would be memorable!"OjasAbout local ElisabettaLyon, May 2023
