Eating Your Way Through Lyon
Oct 2019
When searching for a guided tour, we look for someone who is extremely knowledgeable, has great connections with the locals and someone who loves what he/she does. Jean-Alexandre (or Alex) was the perfect match for our group of 4. We asked for a gastronomic walking tour that included key sites of the city. He delivered in spades!

There isn't a fact or figure that Alex doesn't know. Every question was well received and thoroughly answered. We started our tour by taking the metro to the famous Paul Bocuse food market. What an extraordinary market it is! After a cheese and wine tasting (with the most fantastic bread!), we continued through the city (even took a city bus), tasting freshly made and heavenly sausages, touring Vieux Lyon (after experiencing the Lyon funicular), learning about Lyon's famous silk production and sampling straight-out-of-the-oven praline brioche from Pralus --a must! We had so much fun with Alex that we asked him to join us for dinner and to choose the location.

Alex has an excellent sense of humor and his command of the English language is miraculous. Hard to believe he has never lived in an English-speaking country because his English is flawless with superb and natural fluency. He is a master tour guide, even teaching the art of being a guide at a local university.

While Alex does all types of tours (including tours for Cruise companies docking in Lyon), this talented man should be viewed as a rare find and perfect for the traveler who is looking for a unique experience. Just tell him what you are looking for and he will make it happen.
