Clémence

Lyon

languages :
Français/French, Espagnol/Spanish, Anglais/English

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!

"Clémence was very knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed her tour very much! She kept us on time which I knew was good but we wish it could have gone on longer. A full day, with lunch of course, would have been great! Written before the UTF site launch"
