Nico – Founder & Guide

Globetrotter, backpacker, I arrived in 2012 in the beautiful city of Lyon. I literally felt in love with this place. Back then I was a computer scientist but soon, I decided to change everything in my life and that’s when I created LyonExplorer and became a guide. That was the best way to satisfy my passion for traveling and for my city. I walked the streets of Lyon for a year looking for the best way to show you as much as possible and to give you a real overview all over the city. The choice was hard as there is so much to show and to tell and I have a very hard time stop talking at the end of the tour (So if you’ve questions, don’t hesitate…) ! But I’m very proud of my hard work and now, I’m guiding people throughout the secrets of Lyon and I’m the happiest man in the world !
JD – Guide

Pure Lyonnais product for 30 years now, I have been feeding myself with local specialties such as rosettes, Lyonnais cushions, quenelles and other pink pralines in my magnificent capital of the Gaules. Having always been passionate (not to say in love) with my city, after obtaining a degree in History, the idea of introducing Lyon to tourists and locals came to me quite naturally.
Fan of the free walking tour concept, I decided to join the team of LyonExplorer. Now I’m a Happy Gone! Come and hang out by my side and walk our streets talking about history, street art and food, after all we are the gastronomy capital of the world! So, no doubt you’ll fall in love with this city and, bonus, you’ll learn a few expressions of our Lyonnais language!
