Interesting tour with a lot of information about Lyon; Also in a wider perspective. A good basis for further exploration of the city.

The guide was excellent, spoke perfect English and gave a very interesting account of the history, culture and development of Lyon. We say places that we would never have discovered walking around on our own.
