The small train of Croix-Rousse is running through this so atypical district. Lyon City Tram’s goal is to make you discover the “colline des Canuts” on a different way. Its design was not chosen at random because it looks like the historical cable...more

We looked all round the area for this but didn't realise it isn't a tram ! It is a little motorised "Dotto" type tour train, seen in many cities with towed little carriages. It goes every so often from the Town Hall square, right in...More

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are glad that your enjoyed your trip with the Lyon City Tram. This tour allows you to discover the district of Croix-Rousse during one hour with the commentary not in 4 but in 5 languages: French, English, German,...More
This would have been a lovely little trip but the tram was packed full and if you sit in the seats at the front of the car it is very cramped and so hot that it is like being in a greenhouse! In these seats...More
A lovely way to travel up the steep slopes of the Lyon hills and see the city from on high. The English commentary with its own personal headphones was informative without being too much for our children to listen to! We stopped at the huge...More
Recently returned from the beautiful city of Lyon. Amazing views friendly people and interesting food. There is lots to see and do and a great deal of it is free. Do visit the stunning Basillica and a boat trip along one of the 2 rivers...More

Hello, thank you for taking time to share your experience. We called the tourist office and our drivers during the afternoon to stop selling tickets. However the very large inrush of tourists was unexpected, the departures of the afternoon were full more than 30 minutes...More
We got onto the last tour of the day using the Lyon City card. There was a lot of people waiting and it was a push and shove to get on. It took 15 mins before we were told that we should have given the...More

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. Even if you have a Lyon City Card, you don't have a priority access, we need you to show your cards to the driver in order to have your tickets for the tram. When there are...More
Excellent tour, seeing a part of the city that you wouldn't normally see due to narrow winding cobblestone streets.
Thoughtful driver who stopped for photo opportunities. Interesting, information packed audio narrative provided - with eclectic mix of french songs, appropriate for the occasion.

We are glad that you enjoyed the visit.
Next time we hope you will have the occasion to discover Lyon in summer,
and why not at night with the Lyon By Night.
Thank you for the commentary,
Have a nice day
