Toni was excellent! Very knowledgeable about the history of Lyon, architecture and “must see” sights. He even provided a list of recommendations for eating and shopping after the tour. Would highly recommend, had an excellent time!

Fun and Informative Way to Experience Lyon

Great tour! Toni was very knowledgeable and friendly. He gave my husband and I an appreciation for Lyon that we might not otherwise have. In the 3 hours, he took us to so many cool spots around different parts of the city, all while explaining the history and sharing cool facts. The fact that the tour group is only 10 people made the experience even better because it was more intimate and conversational. I love that Toni also took the time to chat with each pair in the group to get to know us and share a bit about himself. I highly recommend this tour!

Lyon Walking Tour with Great Guide Toni

The walking tour was fantastic. Our guide Toni was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and provided us with a ton of information about to make the most of our trip to Lyon. I highly recommend this tour. Seeing the old town and taking the funicular up to see 2000 year old Roman ruins was amazing.

This was a very interesting tour and Toni was helpful and well-informed. Finding out the history of a place gives you a better understanding of when you are there. The Traboules were particularly interesting as well as the links with renaissance Italy. A really well spent morning.

Toni was an excellent tour guide showing the group highlights of Lyon’s Vieille Ville. Passionate and very knowledgeable, he went far and beyond our expectations. Answered our questions, shared secrets of the city’s history and gave us great recommendations as to culinary and cultural experiences in Lyon and beyond.

Toni's excellent tour
Janna_T
, May 2022
Toni gave us a fantastic tour of largely the old section of Lyon. His knowledge of Lyon's history and how Lyon operates was fascinating and enjoyable. He is a delightful person, engaged directly with each member of the group, and followed up with lots of recommendations. We are so glad to have booked this tour to share with our father and partner. This was also a good tour for elderly folks who cannot walk fast - even though we covered a lot of territory, it was at a reasonable pace with lots of stopping to view highlights and hear about the history and architecture. In case this is useful information, in addition to French and English, he speaks Spanish. Thanks so much, Toni!

This tour alone may be worth the trip to France. Or at least Lyon. We all know that tour guides make or break the experience - Tony demonstrates the best guide skills I've ever encountered; his nuanced blend of useful facts woven into a tapestry of useful history and humor kept us spell-bound. We bombarded him with questions and he deftly responded, adding colorful details and perspective. As my 85 year old mother's last international adventure, I wanted every day to be perfect; she loved every moment with Tony and we wish we'd recorded it. We literally walked out of our subsequent tour (which cost double) because we found it shallow and boring. Don't miss the time with Tony.
