About Free Tour Lyon
On our free tours, your local guide will show you all the highlights of the lovely city of Lyon. During our tours, you will learn about the history of the city, but also about the food, the local culture and legends. We will explain you where the best 'Bouchon' are, take you through hidden passegeways called 'traboules' and show you all the hidden courtyards and charming pieces of architecture. After our tours, you will have a good impression of the city. We love to give recommendations for the rest of your stay. Lyon is an amazing city with stuff to do for everybody. There are some great museums, parks, shops, churches, bars, markets and restaurants. We will point you in the right direction! We have two tours: the Vieux Lyon tour and the City tour. Both are great! Check our website to reserve or to find the meeting points.

Paul is a nice person that knows very well the history of the city. Paul is also a shy person so he didn't managed soo well the group, no jokes or small talks or even a "any questions" moment. He followed the tour as a computer follows its script. Another thing that did bothered me is that there are many informations about "what does the lion, bull and eagle means", or "what is the main history of the city" that Paul did not talked about. There are many Romanic/Gallic information that was not mentioned. If you want to learn about it, ou shall go to the museum. And for the final part, the thing that most upset me during the tour is that we have entered the cathedral during his explanations and suddenly he started to talk loud inside the cathedral, not caring about the local citizens who wanted to pray. This attitude for me is of great disrespect. I would like to make a final line to say short how the tour was : It was a speedy 2 hours tour that clarify a lot of small informations, and it is worth it, but in comparison to others "Free Walking Tours", it lacks some rhythm and charisma. PS: I'm sorry about my english. I hope that I could express myself properly.

It's impossible to point out a favorite moment from the tour, since Paul managed to turn even crossing the corner of the street into an interesting story. A tour by Paul is a definite must here!
