A view from above changes everything; the comments were excellent. I admired the mastery of the drivers to weave their way through the narrow or crowded streets. Too bad the storm spoiled the end of the visit, but there is nothing we can do

This was an excellent tour which we would highly recommend. The guide spoke perfect English and gave us detailed information throughout the tour. Also a very comfortable journey to the Beaujolais area.

I was charmed by the monuments, the gigantic rural frescoes are impressive and magnificent. Fascinated by its history and for my part the fabulous discovery of the typical dish of Lyon (a killing).

It was a good visit because it allowed us (me and my girlfriend) to go to the big sites of Lyon and to stop there if we wanted and to take the bus again because the ticket lasts the day.

Great activity to discover the city of Lyon and its emblematic places. We recommend !
