This is the first time I used this type of Audioguide application and I was very pleasantly surprised. The application is very fun, it allows you to follow a route with the location of the phone and to stop at points of interest. Although I don't live very far from Lyon, this application allowed me to better understand the history of old Lyon with its traboules. The only downside is that the application quickly discharges the phone; after completing the route you won't have much battery left.

Very interesting walk in Lyon. I had a lot of difficulty accessing the audio guide. I almost gave up. Getting started is not at all clear. The QRcode is useless.

A great tour that we really enjoyed. So much so we chose another by the same company. Easy to use. At your own pace. Right balance of information.

Good fun. loved being able to take it at our own pace, and even pick it up another day

Very good explanations. Just the right level of detail. Perfect
