    Toni is an excellent guide. He emailed us once we signed up for the tour, then he sent us an whatsapp message on the morning of the tour to remind us of the meeting location. Toni gave us a lot of background information of the various points of interest, now we really LOVE Lyon and are looking forward to visit this city again. He also provided restaurants recommendations.

    Very informative presentaion

    Pleasant boat, lots of upstairs outdoor seating. Commentary very clear above engine noise. Highlight for me was going right down to where the Saone joins the Rhone. You can actually see the difference in the rivers, both flow and colour. Dome very quirky buildings to be seen in the new Confluence district, probably at their best from the river. Good value for money. Only omission, that is really important, was that there was no announcement of safely measures or what to do in the event of accident, capsized, etc, or where life jackets may be found. Or indeed, if there were any.
