    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.
