Very relaxing one hour, upstream on the Saone, south to the confluence, and back to the city centre. The guide changed effortlessly from French to perfect English, with informative and appropriate dialogue.

I took the 1-hour cruise around the Ile Barbe. This cruise offers nice views of the city from the river and it is very informative. The well-informed guide explains the background of Lyon and its sights that you pass by.
