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.

A fun activity, puzzles are sometimes complicated to understand for children aged 10 and 12. The clues are a great help to see if we are in the right direction. Example the term "pass the orange passage" we did not guess right away that it had to be crossed.... on the other hand great to discover the old town

The trip is too notch. Both the guide and the driver are happy individuals. The guide will give detailed instructions and answer all questions one may have. I recommend this trip.

Beautiful night with excellent food and service. Although cruise started about a half hour later than scheduled, the staff were great and we enjoyed the evening very much.

Had a great time, definitely the highlight of our trip. Alex was the best driver!
