Great way to see a lot of Lyon really quickly.

We took the two hour tour and saw just about all we needed to see of Lyon. There were only four of us on the tour as we took it on an overcast day. This was good as it meant it remained cool. I was not sure about the lectric bikes at first as I had never ridden one, but by the end of the tour we were all converts. The make the ride so much easier. We covered all the banks of the rivers. Started around the pool area of the Rhone, down to "The Conjucture", the meeting of the rivers. Then up and over the Saome, past the original town area for Lyon until we crossed it again up near the tunnel that takes you under the hill on the middle peninsular to the Rhone again. We crossed back to the side we started riding down to the pool area again then back to the office on the other side. All up around 2.5 hours. We saw a lot and it would have been nice to do it a little slower so photos could be taken. But it was well worth it. I would recommend it as a tour most could do.

Excellent friendly host with detailed explanations of everything!

I was hesitant at first to considering the price for a walking based tour, but the history and small nuances provided by the host were second to none. She was extremely friendly and very accommodating. The food (and wine) were brilliant, and the tour shows you parts of Lyon Old Town that you might not otherwise see. We were also able to see a silk trader at work, and were explained the history of silk, Lyon, and the Traboules, and how they co-existed. Overall, very excellent! P.s. the first stop with the cheese was very tasty! We went back and bought more!

Easy to use, and great with a 24 hr plan

I found city pass to be particularly helpful for organizing. We activated our cards, which we picked up from the info office, at around 1pm to take a river boat trip to Barber Island, then squeezed in the Museum of Fine Arts before taking transport to see a game at Lyonnaise Olympic Stadium, and to our AIRBNB, after. In the morning we hit the Lumiere Museum, and the subway to Vieux-Lyon. We happened upon the museum of cinema and miniatures, and that was a pleasant treat to unexpectantly arrive at, before our 24 hours ended.

Great insight to the food in the old town

We had an enjoyable experience learning not only the food and wine but also fascinating local history with an insight as to how the city and the food are inter woven. Surprisingly a highlight of the tour was not of a culinary nature but of a local artisan who specialised in the weaving of extremely beautiful hand woven silk. The whole experience was definitely enhanced by our knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic guide Oliver.

A very pleasant way to see upon the river's edge of Lyon!

We decided at the last minute to book a 1 hour cruise of the Saone River to give us a different view of Lyon. It was a very relaxing way to see some of the sights of Lyon. While it was bright sunshine, it was quite chilly so a warm jacket is recommended due to the wind chill factor!
