Amazing city, really beautiful.
I recommend everyone to discover Lyon, a really beautiful town, nice monuments, and such a delicious food.
A beautiful cruise
Well worth it on a beautiful sunny day. Appreciated the bilingual French/English explanations by the guide.
Really enjoyable trip getting a useful feel for the history and culture of the city and the vital role of the river
Lovely way to see the city
It was a lovely, relaxing tour and the guide was amazing at switching between English and French. She provided all sorts of historical, cultural and current information about Lyon.
Great information for tourists looking to explore Lyon!
Really enjoyed the cruise and a very informative commentary! This was included in our Lyon City Pass.
The cruise was a supposed to be in both English and French, but there were lots of parts delivered in French that were not translated. Also the host spoke to some of the guests in French making lots of conversations and comments we could not understanding. The bar was not always manned and I nearly got locked in the toilet as the lock was faulty and difficult to open and close.
The views were amazing but it was not as interesting as I had hoped and went of for too long. Does not need to be an hour.
Informative river crossing
The lady guide was lovely and well informed about the history of the area.
It was a lovely trip to and from along the river Saône.
You get amazing service in the tourist office!
