Join your small group and guide near the Palais de Justice in central Lyon to begin your morning or afternoon tour.

Steeped in centuries of history and considered the culinary capital of France, Lyon's vibrant mix of monuments, museums, squares, restaurants, bars, shops and markets are a delight to explore — especially by bike.

Spill out onto Place Bellecour, a famous plaza crowned by a statue of notorious King Louis XIV, and spin past the picturesque boating lake in Tête d'Or Park. Arrive back at the start point to conclude your tour.

Family walk on a hot afternoon. We loved this tour with our very helpful guide Pauline. We learned a lot about Lyon (history of the city, monuments, good addresses ...). Visiting the city by electric bike with electric assistance is very pleasant, almost relaxing. Really good experience. And the little attention to provide water to dehydrate appreciated

Brilliant experience and a great way to see Lyon and get your bearings. Our guide was fantastic and gave us lots of local info and recommendations. She tailored the tour to suit our interests and we enjoyed two hours seeing various sites. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Lyon.

Super activity at a price consistent with the service. The tour was supposed to last 2 hours and in the end, it lasted longer. It is appreciable to see that the guide takes his time and especially pleasure in making us discover Lyon. I highly recommend

The local guide, Enric, took plenty of time to give us explanations of the city. He is a "open book". The ebikes were simple and easy going to go for a ride. The day was perfect.
