Très bon moment passé avec notre guide : des explications claires et intéressantes, des lieux variés et insoupçonnés et un très bon snack à l'issue de la visite. Merci beaucoup Jérôme pour tout.

Wonderful adventure through the old town. Jérôme could tell stories and history all day. The money for the tour also goes to a good cause. Preservation and respecting the residents is important.

We thoroughly enjoyed Jerome’s tour. Jerome is a terrific guide- extremely knowledgeable and fun to be with. We visited several fascinating locations and learned a great deal. All capped off with a wonderful visit with Jerome at his beautiful apartment with thoughtfully prepared snacks sensitive to our family’s allergy needs. Highly recommend as a great introduction to Lyons’s history and culture.

Jerome was a fantastic host, and extremely knowledgeable. As a Lyon native, he knows the city well, and as a history professor he's got a great knowledge of the history. It's obvious he has a real love of the city and the history!
