About the tour

During our walk through the cobbled streets of this large Renaissance ensemble, you can admire 15th-16th century architecture, and get an insight into some local secrets. You will hear about how Asterix and Obelisk are connected to this city, and how Lyon became so rich and important. I will show you some funny-faced puppets, we will talk about Lyon’s gastronomy and discover hidden passageways that have been in use for centuries and still provide shortcuts to everyone who knows where to find them.

A really enjoyable trip. Sad to see all the cafes and restaurants closed and the streets mostly empty. That did, however, give us the chance to get up close to things with Eniko. She was very adventurous going into the traboules for us to see what they were like. Something I never did when I lived there in the 80's. She has warned us that the signal is bad in them so it came as no surprise when it happened. All in all a very professional trip. Thank you very much Eniko.

Very freindly and easy to understand so not sure why some people say she’s hard to understand. Not at all I understood every word. She engages with the viewers and she keeps it interesting. I’ll be looking for more tours.

Eniko provided an interesting tour of Lyon. She discussed the region's history, current circumstances, tourist attractions, culture of the region, and stopped for opportunities for photographs. She went through one area with lowered internet coverage, but warned in advance that it was worth seeing that hidden street. Grazie for an excellent Lyon part 1 tour.
