What people are saying about Lyon

A great way to discover this magnificent city in a different way. The rhythm is very pleasant. I discovered neighborhoods still unknown to me. The comments are very informative, well calibrated in 2 languages. Time to admire, to enjoy, to take pictures… to breathe on deck. This allowed me to deepen on foot the places that had me more. Must do

Just brilliant great commentary which did go on all the time really interesting beautiful evening and a great way to see even more of Lyon from the Saône River. Value for money

The presentation is precise and pleasant and the reception is "real" with a real consideration of the interlocutor! A beautiful softness over the water...

Very pleasant visit, nice route, interesting comments, the city of Lyon is so spectacular!

A relaxing way to get a good overview of the city with the added bonus of a commentary.
