Did this trip on a very hot Sunday in July. There was a tinted glass air conditioned cabin almost the full length of the very modern boat which most of the passengers seemed to prefer although some opted to fry up on the cabin roof. There was an informative commentary in French & English to add to the interest. The... More

Always nice when surprised by the quality of the meal! For about €50 the boat tour AND meal was fantastic! The gourmet meal was a nice surprise! Would like to see a better priced wine selection...that would be my only negative comment! This boat is a must do in Lyon! Very pristine!

We chose the Old town tour which takes you out of the city into the leafy suburbs during which the guide revealed some interesting facts about the continued history of the city. If the weather is very hot and sunny and you would like to sit on the top deck, make sure to bring a hat or parasol as there... More

It was raining, we had a city card. We got our tickets an hour or so in advance and took the 3.15 trip up the Saone. Good views, even from the inside of this new electric boat, and the commentary in French and English was clear and interesting. A very pleasant hour's trip.

We took the one hour sightseeing trip which appeared to be all that was on offer and was disappointed. The problem seems to be that it started near the Perrache station on the Salone side, travels down the river to the confluence, and then up the Rhone river a short way, before turning around. Whilst the start of the trip... More

This is an easy way to see Lyon in the evening - on the "out" part of the cruise, the buildings are clearly visible in the waning light, on the return there is a very different aspect, with the buildings being floodlit. The highlight is undoubtedly the views of the district of La Confluence and the Confluence museum, which can... More

My son (20s) and I used the Lyon City Card to cover the cost of this boat trip. All the staff were very efficient and pleasant. The trip itself was a pleasant way to spend an hour on a warm day but not that exceptional. If you have limited time in Lyon there is more to see in the city... More

This boat trip came free with our Lyon City Card (you have to get yourself 1 of these from the Tourist Office - they are great value). We found the rendez-vous point easily enough, the sign in process was quick and easy and the boat was new and very comfortable. The problem is that there is just not that much... More

A very relaxing way to see parts of Lyon...sail up past where the silk weavers worked, hear the history of buildings that are now being used as Music and Dance Colleges. Sail around the island of Ile Barbe.

We got a boat trip during the Light Festival and it was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle for a while to see the city at night. However you don't see that many displays and have to head into the centre of town - but it's a good way to cross off the displays in the West.
