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!

This is a nice general tour. You learn a little bit about Lyon's local food and local history and see sights in Old Town like the church, some important squares and a couple of passageways. Our guide Vincent spoke great English. We chose to go on a Sunday morning in August to avoid crowds and that worked out well. There was just enough walking, eating, drinking and learning over the course of three hours, it was a nice pace.

Vincent was engaging and knowledgeable about the area and had deep history of Lyonese cusine. We broke break at a renowned boulangerie, tasted praline, some of the best charcuterie and the wine flowed generously. We got see the historic parts of and explore some areas we would have definitely not found on our own. Great experience.

Great opportunity to see lot of areas of Lyon in 1 day. I greatly enjoyed the hop on hop off bus, as it gives flexibility. You have the opportunity to pace yourself when you want to explore any particular area, then continue on your journey.

The trip was shortened because of high water levels in the river. The food, though, was very good and the staff were all very friendly. The shortened trip seemed to throw the timing off, but it was otherwise a really good experience.
