Interesting however weak German speaking guide

Our German speaking guide Léon showed great enthusiasm for the tour but his German was too weak. He spoke very quickly, repeated a lot. His vocabulary was small and it took a lot of imagination and interpretation to understand what he meant. We only stayed at the cathedral for about 45 minutes and on a 2 hour tour this is far too long. We wanted to see Lyon and not get every symbol of the cathedral explained! I think we missed a lot of interesting information about Lyon because Léon couldn't explain it in German. We gave Léon the voucher, but he said he didn't really need it.

Excellent Tour from our Guide

We booked a 4 hour tour of Lyon for our party of six. Our guide was excellent! Although she is originally from Russia, she spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable about all the places we visited in Lyon. She spend a lot of time with us in the Fourviere cathedral, the Roman ruins, traboules, and took us to a silk makers shop where we received a demonstration from a master silk weaver.
