Very interesting information and a fun way to start exploring the city. App was a bit challenging to get going but worked wonderfully once started. App does a great job of guiding. Looking forward to finding another one!

Great activity with good value for money. The guide Carla was on top. 2 hours to criss-cross the corners of Lyon. Special mention for the Parc de Tête d'Or and its giraffes

Bike tour was interesting from start to finish, bike pace good, route super fun and explanations at sights interesting and not too long. Well worth it!

Fun and a little more alternative. Is just also nice to cycle along the river and in the park

Very good tour the guide was very nice and gave us a lot of good information about the town!
