Es war ein schönes Erlebnis, um verschiedene Seiten von Lyon kennenzulernen und ich würde es für einen ersten Eindruck der Stadt empfehlen :) Die junge Frau, die die Fahrt auf Englisch und Französisch kommentiert hat, hat einen sehr guten Job gemacht. Ihr Französisch war größtenteils sogar für mich als relativer Anfänger verständlich und ihr Englisch war auch super verständlich. Interessante Infos :)

They made tourists felt like they learned something about the city beside the lovely sight.
