My mom and I did this tour as we did not have a lot of time to see Lyon and it was phenomenal! The guide Tatiana was so sweet and knowledge about the city and all the hot spots! Truly a different way to see the city and made it fun. Would HIGHLY recommend. We were intially worried about the safety aspect as we had never been on a Segway before, but it was easier than it looks (:

Wonderful way to discover!

It was such an amazing and fun idea to do this tour! We had probably the best segway instructor (guide) in all France! Cecile (not sure if that is correct) was wonderful, here attenction and care made us feel very comfortable in traffic. Segway was something new and fun to try! It was very easy and pleasent to learn riding it. Higly reccomend this tour!

Belle activité idée ingénieuse pour une visite de Lyon. Cécile à été très pro et très avenante. Je n'hesiterais pas à la proposer à me amis. Si vous avez besoin de mes services j'ai travaillé chez Air France pendant 30 ans j'ai pris un plan de départ volontaire. Je profite de cette occasion pour vous proposer mes services si toutefois vous avez besoin de quelqu'un pour promouvoir votre activité j'ai pas mal d'idees ou pour accompagner, je pourrais éventuellement me rendre disponible. N'hésitez pas à me contacter au 0614167431.
