This tour takes you through doorways that lead to secret houses, to amazing streets and tiny courtyards. To truly see the old city of Lyon you need to take this tour. Small group and lots of historical info.

We did the Lyon Discoveries tour in english. The guide was very nice, and knew everthing, but you had to ask questions to pull it out. He couldn't weave a story or explain in any depth unless asked. Otherwise, it is a good way to...More
