Enjoyed two museums and the transit parts of the Lyon card. I think it paid for itself in one day!

The tour itself was nice and informative. Viator needs to give better directions to the start point in Place Bellecour. We asked three people before we found the sign. It's on the side with the clock tower near the Royal Hotel and a small shop below ground that sells lots of shoes.

What an awful and aggravating experience! It was Gay Pride Day. So, you had a sign posted
that said afternoon tours would start at Stop #2 rather than at #1. We started on the tour at
Stop 1 and itf went out of order to a few of the last stops and then ended up at Stop 2. We were
told that the bus would leave again in 15 minutes; it was actually 35 minutes. Then, we thought
it would repeat the route it had just done so we could get off at #7 or #8 near our hotel. It Didn't!
It skipped all the later stops and we made a round trip back to Stop 2. We walked from there, but
wasted the 35 minute wait time plus abbreviated second loop before we walked home.

(The sign had only said that Stop #1 woud be skipped after 3:30 PM.

Black Eye for Viator in failure to disclose the departure point and tour operator. Travelers without satellite phones have challenges calling to confirm tour attendance and departure points. The tour delivery and the departure or pick up spot not identified by Viator earns a black eye. The tour of Lyon was excellent and Hop on and Hop off well known to the Lyon Tourist Board and saved our tour. The Hop on and Hop off is a quick orientation to this very nice city.

The bus was on time, it was a freezing day in spring and it was even cold downstairs on the bus. It was not a particularly exciting tour, certainly didn't make me say wow can't wait to see more. Need to do a bit more Lyon!!! After 4days in the city did discover some lovely elements but not on this bus.

Good value and even more so if you can get organised with planning. This i did not do but by asking the right questions at the Tourist Centre where I collected the card I still think great value. (The boat cruise is fantastic and recommendation to spend time in old part of the city across the river and up to the Cathedral made for a memorable day)
