It was extremely hot, especially in closed front areas of the tram, but it was very informative and enjoyable otherwise. It would be very nice, however, if one could get off at the « plateau » to wander around, rather than having to stay on for entire circuit. I did get ripped off money-wise with this online ticket purchase where I didn’t see the option to buy a two-day hop on and hop off bus pass that also included the tram excursion! That’s why my value for money rating is so low below!

An quick an interesting insight to historic Lyon

A good way to see the heart of Lyon, but not a huge amount to see. The commentary was very useful though. Booking a specific time is really useful as you have priority over all other ticket types and are guaranteed a seat. Instructions to find the start point need to reflect the fact you need to go into shop by the bus stop and have tickets validated before getting on.

The guide has very good knowledge in the history of Lyon, France and Europe. She was able to explain very single place, events and monuments with a great in depth information. Being in the same city and heard several versions of various events, but she cleared all the doubts and was able to inform us which really a stories and which is true.

De Lyon city-tram audio-guided tour geeft je een mooi beeld van een mooi gedeelte van Lyon: Croix-Rousse, waar je lopend niet zo gauw doorheen komt, vanwege de steile hellingen.

Our guide had a good knowledge of Lyon and is obviously very proud of her city. We got some good insights about how Lyon developed over the centuries from Roman times to now.
