This was a totally different take on the traditional tour and all the better for it! (not at all the typical "this is a building. It was built a long time ago" kind where you fall asleep half way through). Guided through la Croix-Rousse, Clemence's amazing story telling kept us both informed of the history and captivated through the characters... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Agent C (Clemence) -- learning about local history, walking through several traboules -- and swept up about the storytelling. Highly recommended!!

We greatly enjoyed a "secret printing press" tour of the old town in a very small group. Combining some of the excellent sights of old Lyon with a fictional story was a fun and different way to get to know the town.

Clemence has amazing knowledge and passion for Lyon's heritage. Her storytelling brings Vieux Lyon and it's traboules to life. You can't miss it!

Our city tour with cybele was an incredible unique way to experience Lyons old city. During the 1 1/2 hour visit the host showed us a couple of secret place combined with historical anecdotes.

Merci Clémence pour cette visite insolite. On se sentait vivre et respirer comme au 15/16eme siècle. Très interssant, passionnat, vivant. Thank you Clémence for this unusual visit. We felt living and breathing as we were in 15/16 century. Really interesting, exciting and living!

Our visit to Lyon with Clemence was exactly what we needed to appreciate this beautiful city. For my 20-something daughter, she brought a youthful view. For my traditional tastes, she covered history and art from a knowledgable perspective. We especially appreciated her "discussion" with a resident of the Rose traboule who wanted to debate the privacy. Our time with Clemence... More

I can't help thinking that Cybèle was quite possibly the highlight of our evening in Lyon last week. Between her profound knowledge of the history of the city, her spontaneity, quick witted replies (putting a few of our crowd in their place on several occasions) and especially her sense of humour, I can promise you an unforgettable evening. In our... More

This was amazing, all the good comments fit to what we experienced. Clémence captivated our attention so nicely, despite the fact that we were a large group of 25 people, quite tired after a busy day. Her English was perfect and I really liked Clémence improvising from the comments and teasing from some of my colleagues, certainly not an easy... More

We were an international group of business people meeting in Lyon and we very much enjoyed the tour. A good mix of history, culture and humor! All of that in English! Thanks!
