Our guide, Bruno was fantastic. He quickly worked out what we were interested in and tailored our experience accordingly. He gave us exactly what we wanted: the history from the Romans, through the silk trade to exciting newer experiences we should look at while we were in Lyon such as Musee Confluence, Musee de Beaux-Arts and my wife’s favourite; Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and it has made our trip to Lyon so much better.

Our tour was outstanding. Vincent, our guide, took us to different parts of the old town of Lyon to introduce us to the food of Lyon. We learned about the culinarily history and political history of Lyon. Comfortable, enjoyable, well organized are some of the words I would use to describe the tour.

Absolutely outstanding! Natalie was very kind, knowledgeable and such a great host. We can highly recommend this tour. Absolutely worth it! You'll get to taste some specialties of Lyon and get some great history insight as well.

arrived on time. it was a heatwave but being on the boat (inside) was a nice break from the heat

Perfect cruise to get oriented with the area. 1 hour was perfect! The price is right.
