LOCAL CERTIFIED : Company & Guides
Discover the historic centre of Lyon on a private tuk tuk tour for no more than 6. With a local guide behind the wheel, you and your intimate group can explore the top sights and lesser-known areas, from famous squares like La Place Bellecour to the hidden shops and eateries along the shores of the Saône.
In the heart of Vieux Lyon, you board your electric tuk tuk, an updated version of the vehicle first made famous in India and East Asia. Beginning outside the Lyon Cathedral, you zip your way through the streets, travelling first over the Saône River onto the Presqu’île peninsula.
Once over the river, your guide leads you through the picturesque streets, bringing you by the Romanesque Basilica of Saint Martin of Ainay, and up into the charming tree-lined square of La Place Bellecour. Continue north to marvel at the 19th-century architecture of Théâtre des Célestins, as well as the ornate fountain that marks the centre of Place des Jacobins.
As your guide shares engaging stories of the history and architecture of Lyon, take a ride by the nostalgic carousel that sits in Place de la Republique. Further north, you pass through the bustling square of Place des Terreaux, upon which lies the 17th-century abbey-turned-Lyon Museum of Fine Arts.
With the cool breeze coming in off the Saône to the west and Rhône to the east, your tour concludes with a ride past the Gothic Catholic church of Saint-Nizier. Scope out the hidden eateries and quaint cafes that line the narrow streets as you travel back over the river to your starting point.
