Perrine, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

LANGUAGES :
Français/French, Anglais/English, Espagnol/Spanish
Born in Lyon but raised in the Lyonnaise countryside, I am an art historian and guide lecturer. During my studies, I lived in Seville and Irlande before completing a Master Degree in art history specialized in architecture. Passionned by cultural heritage and architecture, I wanted to become an archeologist but the sharing and transmission dimension was lacking. So I started to work as a tour guide, leading tours in french, english and spanish. After spending a few years with scholar groups in Spain and United Kingdom, I decided to become independant and created my own agency to show my beautiful region off the beaten track: Lyon, the Beaujolais, the Dombes, the Bresse and Bourgogne; there are many hidden sites with a rich historical heritage such as the Château de Fléchères. Being a tour guide is to me the most fascinating job, as it allows me to live out of my passion, as well as meeting with people from all round the world, all with great ease. Beside the cultural, historical and archeological information they receive during the tours, my goal is to provide visitors with an unforgettable experience - something they can remember as a good day filled with wonderment, exchange and discovery. ...read more
Alex, private and professional local guide in Lyon
LANGUAGES :
Anglais/English, Français/French, Italien/Italian
I was born and brought up in a town 50 km from Lyon, but I’ve always felt “Lyonnais”. After finishing my degree in modern languages at Lyon III University, I became an Italian teacher and then taught French in Italy. I also have 6 years of marketing experience. I’ve always loved history and art and I my first opportunity to test out my guiding skills came when my Italian students visited me in Lyon. I then started giving tours to Erasmus students at Lyon II University, so my passion for this amazing profession was born! Today, I’m a qualified professional guide. What can you expect during my tours? Lots of gastronomy, humor, anecdotes, participation and games. I like to create a fun and friendly atmosphere, and I’m fascinated by the origins of everything; from history, to languages and wines. ...read more

Emilie, private guide for Unique Tours Factory

Lyon, gastronomy, history, Brotteaux, French cuisine
LANGUAGES :
Anglais/English, Allemand/German, Français/French
Born and raised in Villefranche-sur-Saône (capital of the Beaujolais located 30 miles from Lyon), I moved to Lyon to pursue my studies in Art history at the University Lyon Lumière. During my academic training, I had the chance to be part of the Erasmus yearly exchange program in the city of Heidelberg in Germany. This experience allowed me to discover new cultures and open up internationally. Shortly after, I obtained my national interpreter-guide diploma and I started working for a museum, on cruise ships and for tourist agencies before starting my own business. Seeing the smiles on the visitors' faces is one of the many reasons why I love my job. Passionate about painting, sculpture and architecture, I like to focus on these areas during my tours. The beautiful city of Lyon is an open air museum with more than 2000 years of history. Follow me in the different viewpoints in the Brotteaux district and in Michelin starred restaurants. A curious personal detail: when I'm not guiding, I'm painting and dancing. ...read more

LANGUAGES :
Anglais/English, Français/French, Espagnol/Spanish
Guide-lecturer who graduated from Rennes University in 2010, I also hold a professional guide-interpreter license in French, English and Spanish. I chose this profession because when I was a child, I would often do tours with my parents while on vacation, and I was fascinated by the idea of not being in an office and to work in a historic site. Meeting and exchanging with interesting and curious people is what I enjoy most in my job. During my tours, I like to share my passion for heritage, architecture, history and oenology... Originally from the Hautes-Alpes and living for many years in Lyon, I know all the secrets of the Gaul capital and I would be happy to help you discover it, between cultural heritage and gastronomic tours. But I can also take you to explore the Rhône-Alpes region with the discovery of Beaujolais, as well as Ain and Isère... There is so much to see! ...read more
