Originally from the Lyon region, I chose tourism and art history through my studies before exploring the world for 10 years as a travel guide. Enriched with this experience, I decided to return to my hometown a few years ago to share my love for the local heritage with visitors. After obtaining my Guide Speaker diploma, I created my company specialized in customized tours for French, English and Italian visitors. This small company has recently evolved, now offering unique and personalized travel experiences: themed guided tours with driver guide, wine tours... My curiosity, my interpersonal skills and my thirst for knowledge are my best assets, allowing me to establish a special relationship with my clients. Passionate about my work, I like to offer original itineraries combining unusual getaways, artistic discoveries and dining experiences, always in a friendly and dynamic atmosphere. Follow me in the historic districts of Lyon, discover the secrets of Beaujolais, or plunge into the gourmet world of local gastronomy. Lyon and its region have no secrets for me and I look forward to share them with you!
