Full description

This tour will allow you to discover the city in just 2-hours. See the highlights of Lyon, such as the Saône River, the Banks of Rhône, Bellecour Square, the Park of the Golden Head (Parc de la tête d'or) and many other surprising places.

Join your group near the Palais de Justice in central Lyon to begin the tour. Get outfitted with an electric bike — equipped for comfortable, effortless riding, letting you pedal, cruise, or a combination of both — and set off through the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city. Steeped in centuries of history and considered the culinary capital of France, Lyon's vibrant mix of monuments, museums, squares, restaurants, bars, shops, and markets are a delight to explore — especially by bike. 

Your exact route may vary depending on the day, but your experienced guide will know all the nooks and crannies where Lyon's true magic lies. Ride through the Croix Rousse tunnel, lined with colored lights and music, and keep your eye out for Lyon Cathedral. Listen as your guide shares stories of Lyon's rich history and points out famous attractions and off-the-beaten-path spots only locals know. 

Continue along the banks of the Rhône River, recently renovated for cyclists. Spill out onto Place Bellecour, a famous plaza crowned by a statue of notorious King Louis XIV, and spin past the picturesque boating lake in Tête d'Or Park. Arrive back at the start point to conclude your tour.

Nice to explore Lyon this way. Especially cycling along the banks of the Rhone and through the park. The information is mainly about some historical facts and landmarks. We have not seen the Croix-Rousse tunnel again. Suddenly another guide was waiting for us somewhere to take us back to the start, while the other guide drove on with the group that had booked the longer tour. Not a problem in itself, but it did ensure a quick and unexpected farewell. Perhaps this was due to some lack of time due to a puncture… can happen… The bikes themselves are very good and require little effort. There are really a lot of traffic lights, so it is usually not possible to drive through.

We absolutely loved this tour. This tour was the perfect way to see different parts of the city without a lot of effort. We had Gabrielle and he was patient and informative. The bikes were easy to use and the included water was a must as we visited Lyon during an extremely hot period. The highlight of the tour was Golden Head park with the ride along the Rhône a close second. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Our trip was good. Our guide was super sweet, enthusiastic and good at explaining. The only problem was unclear resolutions about the tour on the website. We cycled over 1 hour on "park head Gold", where we preferred to spend our time seeing the old town together with a guide.
