So much fun. Great way to see the city cruising down the Saone. Would love to come back for the Festival of Lights in December!

As a family, we really enjoyed discovering Lyon from both rivers (Saone and Rhone), exploring the new district of the peninsula (Confluence), its modern architecture. Comments from the guide were to the point, in french and in english. Service was helpful, expect large crowds on a sunny day.

Excellent commentary in French and English. Two options - a trip to explore the old city or the more modern parts around the peninsula where the Rhone and Saone meet. Included if you buy a 'Lyon City Card' (as are most museums, walking ours and metro/tram/funicular travel).

Central Lyon is bounded by two large, wide rivers (the Rhone and the Saone) that come together at the tip of the city's peninsula and then flow on to the Mediterranean. The City Boat tour is probably the best way to see the waterfronts of both rivers that define the peninsula and especially the confluence where they come together to... More

Add this to your sightseeing schedule. Took the trip that goes around the Saone and up the Rhone. A great prospective of the waterfront and surrounding area. Another way to see this beautiful city. Great commentary and helpful staff on shore and on the boat. Arrive early to get seats on the upper level.

This was a lovely way to spend an hour - cruising along the Rhone and Saone Rivers with interesting commentary in English and French. There are two seating areas - up the top of the vessel or an enclosed section down the bottom. If you want to sit up the top, queue early as the open top section seems to... More

The boat serves an excellent 4-course dinner. The regular menu is 55 Euros and the menu gourmand is 65 Euro, not including beverages. While eating a lovely dinner, you cruise along the Rhone and the Saone. A discreet loud speaker describes Lyon history and famous sites. This is an excellent way to discover the city of Lyon. There is also... More

We chose this tour. Fro the three choices because we thought it involved nature and animals. Must have misunderstood. It was a nice ride past a few bridges and seeing how the banks are being used and decorated. There is a wc aboard. Hard wood seats really for three but will hold four and do. Be in line early so...
