This tour was exceptional. Didac was the most enthusiastic, energetic and very well informed guide I’ve ever met. He added a whole immersive experience to the tour with touches of music, Unknown information and facts about Lyon. He took me to hidden gems and areas I’ve not seen before. Definitely unique and fascinating.
