Full description

Discover Lyon, a city known for its variety of landscapes, in particular the confluence between the Saône and the Rhône. The tour will begin by the south of the city, in the district of La Confluence. After a 15-minute training session, you will ride from the extension of the Presqu'île to its modern district, passing by buildings from the city's industrial history. Then following the Saône riverbank you will see the Old City classified as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. After a few minutes, you will be in front of the Croix-Rousse hill, famous for the silk industry and its beautifully colored architecture. Your local guide will tell you more about that time when the Canuts, or silk workers, lived and worked there. You will go back towards the agency along the Rhône river bank. Effortlessly cross Lyon with an easy city bike. This means of transport allows you to see, in a couple of hours, most of the main attractions offered by the city. You will go back home with a lot of memories: the confluence between the two rivers, the Old City of Lyon, the Saône river and its Italian style, Croix-Rousse hill and its silk history, the banks of the Rhône and more.

Great way to see a lot of Lyon really quickly.

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.

We had a brilliant time on this bike tour. Our guide, Marine, was amazing and did the tour in French and English. We saw so much of Lyon and really enjoyed the tour.
