Our guide was David. He was very knowledgeable about Lyon's history and able to explain well for us to understand. Good bicycle trip around the old city area and up the hill. Highly recommend

It was a lot of fun, you could explore the city nicely and saw (almost) all the important sights. Some of the lyrics were a bit confusing, but that didn't bother the whole thing!

A great tour that we really enjoyed. So much so we chose another by the same company. Easy to use. At your own pace. Right balance of information.

This was fun and we were able to go at our own pace and enjoy the town. We saw lots of Lyon we would potentially have missed

Nice trip. Impressive experience to enjoy this afternoon. Thank you for your nice travel guide.
