      Quick overview of the highlights of Lyon without explanation

      Well for quick overview of the strengths of Lyon but if your goal is to have cultural or historical explanations is not what offers this visit yet expensive. Non-French speaking guide with pronounced English accent. No added value of historical knowledge. This is not what we were looking for this price.
