Our guide, Bruno was fantastic. He quickly worked out what we were interested in and tailored our experience accordingly. He gave us exactly what we wanted: the history from the Romans, through the silk trade to exciting newer experiences we should look at while we were in Lyon such as Musee Confluence, Musee de Beaux-Arts and my wife’s favourite; Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and it has made our trip to Lyon so much better.

Our tour was outstanding. Vincent, our guide, took us to different parts of the old town of Lyon to introduce us to the food of Lyon. We learned about the culinarily history and political history of Lyon. Comfortable, enjoyable, well organized are some of the words I would use to describe the tour.

I highly recommend this tour! The tour guide really knows the city and shows the soul of the city. Would recommend to do this in the morning before 12h, because more things are available for tourist.

Beautiful night with excellent food and service. Although cruise started about a half hour later than scheduled, the staff were great and we enjoyed the evening very much.

arrived on time. it was a heatwave but being on the boat (inside) was a nice break from the heat
