On our free tours, your local guide will show you all the highlights of the lovely city of Lyon. Lyon has many stunning landmarks and a lot of history and culture. We like to show you why we love 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!
