My name is Clémence Gabert, I was born in the French Alps but I grew up mainly in Lyon. I live today in Isère department, between Lyon and Grenoble.
My passion for heritage started when as a child, I followed guided tours of castles with my parents. I have always loved history, art, archeology, modern languages, and I love my job very much, because it allows me to discuss fascinating subjects with fascinating people!
I have a degree in Tourism as well as the tour guide professional license which allows me to guide in museums and Historical Monuments. I speak English and Spanish.
My favorite visits are those combining anecdotes, local stories, meetings with craftsmen, pretty unusual places, and a touch of gastronomy to make it all more lively...
I booked 2 days of the open day tour, with initially a very broad plan. Clemence had never tried to do this type of tour but dove in and gave it her all. As time got close she was smooth in keeping in touch when I wrote to change the focus. From day 1 I felt like she was personally invested in my trip being a complete success. Her incredible knowledge was a joy to learn from. She also allowed time for quiet, great for introverts like me. I would surely place her in my top 5 guides of the 100s I have used !

We had a wonderful tour with Clemence G. She is very friendly, engaging personality and speaks English well. Her tour had all the basic information you would expect plus interesting stories only a local would know. It was a lot of walking but there was so much to see the time went by quickly. She was also very accommodating when we took a few minutes to buy the Brioche she recommended as we went by the shops. We appreciated and enjoyed the city of Lyon more because of her tour. Thank you Clemence !

Clemence is wonderful. It's that simple. We wanted to see street art, and she showed us exactly what we wanted to see, along with great information. Her English is wonderful. She was so helpful before the tour, suggesting restaurants, etc. when we asked. She met us at our hotel, and the whole time was seamless. I only regret that we didn't book her for the whole day ! You could not ask for a better guide in Lyon, or probably anywhere in that region. So fun.

Clemence is an exceptional guide. Her knowledge of the subject of the tour and her ability to relate stories made for an engaging morning. We covered a lot both physically and historically. She is personable and upbeat with excellent English skills. I would highly recommend her for any tour but especially the WWII and Resistance Tour.

Clemence was very welcoming and solicitous of our needs. She was very knowledgeable and had lots of local color to add. During and after the tour, everyone in our group thanked me for organizing it and were very appreciative that it was so good; that there was so much they had not and would not have known. Clemence was easy to deal with before, during and after the trip. She told me she had not done this before and realized that she wanted to and therefore needed to study up on it. She really did !

Clemence was a delight and a wonderful guide. Extremely knowledgeable about the places on the tour, the history, the architecture and it was a perfect orientation for me to Old Lyon and the places to which to return during my time here. Her command of the English language is impeccable.
I would highly recommend her !
