It was really nice and cheap... Thank you !
Very friendly and helpful
The staffs at the tourist office were very professional. They all spoke fluent English. They were very friendly and helpful, even helping me to make reservations for ground tours and riverboat cruises.
The English commentary was not as complete as the French
Nice way to get an overview of the city.
The cruise gives a nice overview of the area south of the old town on the river. I did the cruise on the first day I was in Lyon and it gave me ideas of places to visit for the remainder of my stay.
Pleasant trip on the river
The boat was quiet and comfortable. It was well designed for viewing the sights along the river. The crew were efficient and friendly but as an English speaker, found the commentary, first in French and then in English difficult to follow at times.
