Owner description: According to the elders, three rivers cross Lyon: the Rhône,the Saône and the Beaujolais... Discover the golden stone region going through small quaint villages and visit Oingt, the nicest of all.. Then you will end up in Clochemerle, as famous for its novel than it is for its wine. Do you fancy a memorable wine tasting in the village vault or a more private one in the castle cellar ? No need to choose..both will be done !!

“Fantastic tour, fantastic tour guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We spent time in Lyon and Paris in August 2012, and the tour with Sebastien was by far the best part of that entire trip. It was much, much more than we expected--Sebastien's contacts, knowledge, professionalism and personality resulted in a deeper, richer experience than we have ever had while touring before. He is an excellent teacher, with a love and enthusiasm for his home that is infectious. This time, we visited the Beaujolais region--I can't wait to visit another region with Lyon Is Yours. Congratulations, Sebastien...you've created a gem!

“This is the guy in France!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Lyon and had the lucky to know Sebastien. Don't lose the opportunity to see "inside" the "French way of life" with him. He knows several option to be happy in Lyon...Bon voyage!

“Wine tour with Sebastien from "Lyon is Yours"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We spent 11 days in France in August, half in Paris and half in Lyon. The absolute best day of our trip was the day we spent with Sebastien taking a wine tour of the Beaujolais region. We visited two wineries, tasted many fantastic wines, toured the vineyards, saw the gorgous countryside of the Lyon area, and had an exceptional lunch at Dominic's! I cannot emphasize how wonderful the day was! Sebastian was friendly and great to talk to; he really made the experience exceptional!

“Lyon Is Yours Private Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We stayed in an apartment in Lyon for two weeks and had the good fortune of having Sebastien as our guide for three of those days. He was absolutely superb--the best that we have had in over a dozen trips to Europe. His extensive knowledge of the region (and considerable knowledge of travel in countries around the globe) was unsurpassed. He was courteous, helpful, flexible, dependable, friendly--everything you hope for when you visit a place that is not as familiar as home. He truly treated us like family members, and we reciprocated. Our trip to Lyon, the wine country, the surrounding villages and historical and entertainment areas would not have been as memorable and enjoyable without him. Thank you, Sebastien and we hope to return soon.

“A MUST when in Lyon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

Well, where should I start? The kindness and knowledge of Sebastien Girard? His flexibility? His contagious joie de vivre? Our trip around the Beaujolais region was just one of the best thing we did in France (which included Paris and Bordeaux). We just had to ask what we wanted to do and he added extra personal touches to make it magical. Even took us to meet "his" wine family in a little place called Clochemerle where we had the most delicious lunch -with local wines- and to top it all of, f a Perouges galette in Perouges. We got back to the hotel, content, happy..and wanting to stay another day to discover his tour of Lyon but sadly had to fly back that very morning after. But we'll be back
