Granted we were late, but I let her know ahead of time that we were delayed, and we did not expect her to extent the tour. She shared less information with us than our cab driver the next day and our walking-and-food guide. She sent us into the Notre Dame cathedral and told us to meet her 20 minutes later, rather than accompanying us and pointing out the features of the Cathedral. What can I say - I learned more about Lyon history from the info in my hotel room than I did from the guide. This is all in addition to her refusal to slow her walking pace to accommodate my husband even though I told Context when I booked that one member of our party was mobility challenged and would be slow. Finally, I invited friend to share this tour based on my past good experiences with Context, and they too were disappointed in the tour.
Chloe was particularly good at explaining the history of Lyon and customizing the tour to our preferences.
A wonderful tour of Old Lyon! I am completely intrigued and want to come back to explore more. Such a fascinating and long history! Love it!
