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...

Me and my partner went to Lyon for a week and this was one of the highlights for both of us. The boat was lovely and the service was fantastic. Overall it is great value for money, we paid 75 euros and recieved a 4 course meal (with good sized portions - i struggled to finish dessert despite it being... More

Col booked a boat cruise for the Thursday through the hotel receptionist. Thinking it was a leisurely 3 hour cruise he was surprised when I pointed out that it was in fact a 6 hour cruise along La Saone. This mistake was rewarded by a pleasant lunch while we sat in an air-conditioned floating restaurant on the 'Hermes' whilst the... More

We took the Lyon Decouverte 1hr cruise which was really interesting and we got to see parts of Lyon which we'd never have seen on foot. A lovely way to spend 1hr on a Sunday afternoon especially sitting on the top deck in the sun. Was really well organised. Tickets are Euro 12 per adult, can be bought on the... More

Very interesting cruise of the two rivers in Lyon and their confluence. Some great architecture on view and a good perspective on the central part of the city. I thought it was pretty good value and I was ready to put my feet up.

We easily purchased tickets in the morning for the afternoon trip to Île Barbe (11€ per person), then showed up probably 20 minutes before boarding time and waited in line doing some people watching. We were rewarded with very nice seats on the upper deck allowing us to enjoy the unobstructed views of the beautiful buildings on both sides of... More

We took this cruise after our Hop On Hop Off bus tour, as we were an hour early, we bought our tickets ahead of time for $11 Euros each, and went across the road for a delicious coffee at Diplomatico. Once we strolled back across the road to line up to the line was very long, as everyone was trying... More

Even though I got to see a lot of Lyon the boat tour was horrible. I didn't think it was possible to get seasick on such a short and slow trip but I did. The boat was very dirty and there were a lot of spiders there. The worst part was the guide's English. She mispronounced almost every word and... More

would highly recommend taking this trip whilst in Lyon. We bought a City Card which included the trip. The guide was very informative. It's a great way to see this lovely city.
