Guide Bio

I am a sightseeing guide and independent tour operator. When I guide, I give it all I have. I can talk about frogs and make you love them, but I would rather talk about the French.

I love explaining how people got to build what they built, invent what they invented or cook some local delicacy. This way, you get to go home with lots of secrets in your head. I also specialize on the subject of the French Resistance and Deportation, since Lyon was the capital of the Resistance. I give guided tours in specific areas and lectures on the subject, some of them being specifically focused on the women of the Resistance.

Come and join me on a tour or for a conference. I enjoy meeting guests from around the world.

Sandrine Thompson's Reviews

  • Wade Houlden

    We had a guided tour with charming Sandrine, covering the Resistance in WW2, the silk trade and many other aspects of Lyon’s fascinating history. It was the highlight of our excellent weekend. She is a brilliant guide, her English is perfect, she is very good at bringing history to life, and she even understood our sense of humour, but then she is married to a Brit.
    Thanks Sandrine for a truly enlightening experience, and also thanks to you I am known to all our friends in the village as ‘Chou-Chou’!
