Full description

Meet your guide in La Presqu'île, Lyon's famous central district. After a 15-minute briefing and a training session you’ll head off to experience Lyon by Segway. See the sights of one of France’s most beautiful cities on this tour. Begin by riding along the Rhône River embankment, a wonderful area for bikers and pedestrians. From here you will see beautiful panoramas of the Peninsula. Your guide will tell you about Lyon's history, take photos of you on your Segway and suggest things to see and do later in the day. 

Ride into the amazing Tête d'Or Park and its 114 hectares by the Cité Internationale, built by Renzo Piano. Enjoy this beautiful park, the biggest in the city, where you will see gardens and the zoo. Next, glide into the downtown area. See the Place des Terreaux, one of the main squares in Lyon, with the City Hall and the Museum of Arts. Finish off with a ride through the Place Bellecour – the largest pedestrianized square in Europe!

Magnificent ride with disconcertingly easy machines. All ages, all levels. Carla, our guide was just great, attentive and ready to do anything to satisfy us. Thank you for this very beautiful moment in Lyon!!!

The start location was switched at the last minute to a second location over a mile away (and only two blocks from where we had walked from to get the first location). So we got an Uber and headed to the new location. Then had to wait because there were other people that walked form the first location (understandable). Our guide quizzed us on the history of Lyon and France and would wait and wait for someone to answer. If we got it wrong he would criticize us. He would eventually share a little information. The segway units were throttled down to be the slowest I've ever been on (have done segway tours all over the world). It was still an OK experience but fell far short of the experience I was expecting based on other segway tours I've been on.
