Feel the life in Lyon just like a local - Private tour


The city of Lyon offers a lot of various activities: shopping, cultural visits, and tasting specialities.
In this tour, you can do all of this!

Lyon is made of contrasts: It is a roman city where the middle-Ages was luminous, but also the place where the contemporary architecture expresses itself today.

We go to the city center by bus, to visit Fourvière Hill, where there is an amazing view over the city, we also visit the old town to see the World Heritage quarter. We also go to the covered market to taste other specialities, like cheese, delicatessen and wine.

We can see the different aspects of Lyon in a day!

If the weather is raining, i adapt the tour: less time outside, stops at coffes shops and visits of monuments. Sometimes, the traffic jam in Lyon is just horrible. But for such a day, I think it won't change anything, because we can adapt the tour at the last minute. The tour is not available during the Festival of Lights in December (too many people are there).
