Overview

On our free tours, your local guide will show you all the highlights of the lovely city of Lyon. During our tours, you will learn about the history of the city, but also about the food, the local culture and legends. We will explain you where the best 'Bouchon' are, take you through hidden passegeways called 'traboules' and show you all the hidden courtyards and charming pieces of architecture. After our tours, you will have a good impression of the city. We love to give recommendations for the rest of your stay. Lyon is an amazing city with stuff to do for everybody. There are some great museums, parks, shops, churches, bars, markets and restaurants. We will point you in the right direction! We have two tours: the Vieux Lyon tour and the Croix-Rousse and Presqu'Île tour. Both are great! Our Vieux Lyon Tour starts at 10:00 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday on Place Saint-Jean. The City Tour starts at 10:00 on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday on Place de la Croix-Rousse.

I made one tour in English (Croix Rousse) and another in Spanish (Vieux Lyon). Both very interesting and with good guides. I recommend it very much!

The tour was really interesting and informative, our group had a great time on the Vieux Lyon tour, I wish we'd had time to take the other tour too. The website also provides some suggestions of restaraunts and bars for free.

This tour is absolutely worth your time, especially at the beginning of your stay to give you a good overall feel for the city. Paul was an excellent tour leader, we went on many throughout France, and this tour was the best. Highly, highly recommended.
