My husband and I have lived in Lyon for 34 years and yet discovered some things we never knew about our city. We had a delightful time, figuring out the clues which were not all that easy and following the trail around our beloved city to some off the beaten path areas that led to many adventures, including discovering a little Irish pub, with some excellent beer that we didn’t even know existed. We highly recommend this tour and have already told many friends about it.

It was a lot of fun, you could explore the city nicely and saw (almost) all the important sights. Some of the lyrics were a bit confusing, but that didn't bother the whole thing!
