Jean-Alexandre Benguigui

I have been a tour guide for 10 years in Lyon. I own two companies, one dedicated to interactive tours, and another one that specializes in food tours. There is no tour with me without a tasting! I mostly work with English-speaking guests and train local guides at Lyon University. I guarantee a 100% convivial tour with anecdotes and fun, far from cliches. I enjoy introducing my guests to local people, such as artisans to showcase their passion and prowess.
