Full description
Enjoy a culinary tasting break in the heart of the Old Town! On this 3-hour program you’ll take in the highlights of Lyon by e-bike. See the Saône River, ride along the Banks of Rhône and to Bellecour Square, and continue through the Old Town (Vieux Lyon) to the park of the Golden Head and to many other surprising places! Join the small group and your guide near the Palais de Justice in central Lyon to begin your morning or afternoon tour. You’ll be outfitted with an electric bike that’s equipped for comfortable, effortless riding, letting you pedal, cruise, or a combination of both. Set off through the UNESCO World Heritage–listed city. Steeped in centuries of history and considered the culinary capital of France, Lyon's vibrant mix of monuments, museums, squares, restaurants, bars, shops, and markets are a delight to explore. The exact route may vary depending on the day, but your experienced guide knows all the nooks and crannies, where you’ll find Lyon's true magic. Ride through the Croix Rousse tunnel, lined with colored lights and music, and be on the lookout for Lyon Cathedral. Listen as your guide shares stories of Lyon’s rich history and points out both famous attractions and off-the-beaten-path spots only locals know about. Continue along the banks of the Rhône River, recently renovated for cyclists. Cycle onto Place Bellecour, a famous plaza crowned by a statue of King Louis XIV, and ride past the picturesque boating lake in Tête d'Or Park. Cycle back to the starting point to conclude your tour. During your tour, hop-off your bike and head to a local eatery to sample some of Lyon’s regional specialties (depends of the days, the hour and the partners) : - Regional cold cuts, local cheeses and other tasty bites with local wine or soft drinks - Home made sweet cake or praline pie with home made refreshments, hot drinks or local wine It's served on sharing platters for you and your fellow food lovers to enjoy together.

A really great tour - we enjoyed it very much. It's just great to drive up the mountains with the e-bikes, to learn the history of the silk weavers and to experience Lyon. Amandite was a perfect tour guide and infected us with her radiance and love for this beautiful city. Thank you very much!

We booked the tour as a company. The guide did a good job, you could tell his passion and interest in history & Lyon :) The tour was not everyday and touristy, so we were guided through the Croix Rousse. Exactly that was super exciting. We can only recommend the tour.

An amazing way to see Lyon, our guide explained the history, significant events and stories, and took us through a beautiful garden park outside the main city area. The tasting at the end was the icing on the cake where we got to try some special flavored wine, and various cuts of meat and bread. A great way to start the day, and definitely inspiring to return for a longer stay one day!
