Nice activity, ingenious idea for a visit to Lyon. Cécile was very professional and very pleasant. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest it to my friends. If you need my services I worked at Air France for 30 years I took a voluntary departure plan. I take this opportunity to offer you my services if however you need someone to promote your activity I have a lot of ideas or to accompany, I could possibly make myself available. Do not hesitate to contact me at 0614167431.

My mom and I did this tour as we did not have a lot of time to see Lyon and it was phenomenal! The guide Tatiana was so sweet and knowledge about the city and all the hot spots! Truly a different way to see the city and made it fun. Would HIGHLY recommend. We were intially worried about the safety aspect as we had never been on a Segway before, but it was easier than it looks (:

Wonderful way to discover!

It was such an amazing and fun idea to do this tour! We had probably the best segway instructor (guide) in all France! Cecile (not sure if that is correct) was wonderful, here attenction and care made us feel very comfortable in traffic. Segway was something new and fun to try! It was very easy and pleasent to learn riding it. Higly reccomend this tour!
