My mom and I did this tour as we did not have a lot of time to see Lyon and it was phenomenal! The guide Tatiana was so sweet and knowledge about the city and all the hot spots! Truly a different way to see the city and made it fun. Would HIGHLY recommend. We were intially worried about the safety aspect as we had never been on a Segway before, but it was easier than it looks (:

It was such an amazing and fun idea to do this tour! We had probably the best segway instructor (guide) in all France! Cecile (not sure if that is correct) was wonderful, here attenction and care made us feel very comfortable in traffic. Segway was something new and fun to try! It was very easy and pleasent to learn riding it. Higly reccomend this tour!

Magnifique, extraordinaire, ambiance, belle belle expérience, avant j’avais peur d’utiliser le segway et parce que c’est la première fois que je l’utilise, mais vous aurez une petite formation avant que vous partirez et c’est très facile à apprendre et à s’adapter. Vraiment exploration et tourisme avec Segway, c’est un autre sentiment de c’est vraiment intéressant, surtout qui aime les aventures c’est pas du tout craignant, le guide était sympa et gentil. Le tourisme se fera avec explication des différences de place et culture. je recommande vraiment. C’est inoubliable, seulement il faut bien s’habiller en automne et en hiver pour ne pas avoir froid
