Passionate about travel and history... With four years of living in the city of Lyon, our passion for travel and history has gone beyond mere intellectual interest. It is a passion that drives us to share knowledge and arouse that same fascination in others, through our tours and talks. We will try to convey to you the passion for history, which is much more than a set of dates and facts. For us; it is a window to the past, a journey that allows us to immerse ourselves in different eras and cultures, exploring their triumphs and challenges as well as their achievements and failures. The focus of our experience will be that each place we visit takes you on a journey through time. With each step, you are immersed in the ancient civilizations that once flourished in these lands, admiring their imposing architecture and discovering the mysteries that surround their creation. We have had the privilege of conducting tours in multiple and fascinating destinations in France, Mexico and the Caribbean. From medieval cities like Pérouges or Avignon in France with their medieval architecture and imposing walls that surround them, to the majestic pyramids of Teotihuacán or archaeological sites in Mexico City or the impressive Mayan pyramids of Chichén Itzá, Tulum or Mitla and Monte Albán in Oaxaca , to the paradisiacal pirate destinations of the Caribbean in Curaçao, Aruba or St. Maarten. Our focus is that you enjoy your trip to the fullest...

Die Tour war sehr informative und gut. Nur als Vorschlag und kleine Verbesserung: uns wäre es lieber, wenn die Tour um 10 Uhr anstatt 11 Uhr starten würde, da als wir um 13:35 Uhr mit sightseeing beendet haben, waren fast alle Restaurants zu. Viele davon schliessen schon um 14 Uhr, also war keine Zeit mehr übrig ein Restaurant zu besuchen, die uns ausgerechnet angetan hätte...
