Very Good tour but Very Expensive

This tour , lasting about 90 minutes was very good, but at €21 was also very expensive. I dont think that I have ever paid so much for a hop on/ hop off bus.

Happy hopping in Lyon

This was an excellent way to see most of the city in a day. Hopping off and on suited all of us and we covered a lot of points of interest without feeling exhausted.
