Meet your guide near the Palais de Justice in the center of Lyon, where you'll be set up with an electric bike. It makes for an easy way to sightsee, giving you the option of pedaling or letting the bike do some of the work.

Lyon is chock full of historical monuments and buildings, and it's also the culinary capital of the country – which is saying something in a place like France. Biking through this charming city is a great way to see the sights and work up an appetite.

The exact route for this Lyon electric bike tour varies depending on the day, but with an expert guide to lead the way you won't miss out on the best of this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Pedal through the tunnel of Croix Rousse, a delight inside with colorful lights and music playing, on your way to the Lyon Cathedral. Hear stories of the city's history as you ride, seeing both Lyon's best-known sights as well as some hidden gems your guide points out.

Keep riding along the  Rhône River, with its riverside path recently renovated to be more suitable for cycling, to the Place Bellecour. The square is looked over by a statue of King Louis XIV. From there, ride past the lake in Tête d'Or park, a popular spot for boating.

Take a break midway through your bike tour to refresh and reinvigorate with some of those famous local foods. Taste some locally-made cheese like St-Félicien, cured meats and a local pork sausage called rosette, sweet cakes and other morsels to share among your fellow cyclists. Wash it all down with a glass of local wine.

After the meal break of 30-45 minutes (depending on the tour), continue your tour through Lyon's Old Town, where you'll understand why it's a UNESCO-listed city. Admire historic buildings such as the City Hall, Palais St-Pierre, Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lyon and the stately Place des Terreaux.

Upgrade to a 4-hour tour in order to continue your ride up to La Croix-Rousse for spectacular views overlooking the whole of Lyon. This extended tour also includes a stop at the 19th-century  Basilica of Notre-Dame de Fourvière, with yet more wonderful city views from its hilltop perch.

At the conclusion of your tour, your guide will lead you back to the starting point.

Do this! It was a great way to see a lot in a short amount of time. The bikes are a little heavy, but once you get used to it, you get around very easily. Our guide was great, spoke perfect English, I'm so sorry I forget her name because she was so lovely and the stop at a pub for the food tasting was just perfect, gave our butts a little rest! We learned a lot about the city and environs, it was just perfect. I would do the same tour again if I came back and I would recommend it to my friends!

We had soo much fun though. The sky was blue, the road was clear and EB is all that we need. Our tour guide was a joker and he's a great guy.

Great experience for us to tour Lyon.My partner found the bikes very heavy and all the frame size are the same so we couldn't adjust the seat to what was exactly comfortable/needed. The guide was very good about this and we managed OK....we took it slowly. After some lite food samples we travelled back to base and another guide took us up the hill to Cathederal. A terrific tour with great guides.

Jeremy and Oliver were very informative local guides. This was a great way to see the old town, I recommend the 4 hour tour. We visited the gardens, zoo, basilica and rode around on roads I wouldnt dare without a guide. The traffic was very patient. If you arent a little experienced on a bike this tour isnt for you.

This tour has so far been a highlight in our 4 week Europe trip! The bikes are very easy to use, and make life so easy cruising up hills. Our tour guides were awesome with excellent English and very knowledgable. The food stop was awesome, with delicious cheese and meat! I would recommend this!!!

Only 4 on this tour so personal attention from great guide Melanie. Electric bike easy to operate and saves a lot of energy though still fairly tough to ascend Fouvriere especially if older and out of shape like myself. Nice stop for tasty charcuterie with cheese and a glass of wine. Highly recommended

Absolute great tour, lots of food more than enough and the guide was excellent, shared enough interesting history, was very accommodating with photo taking, excessively patient and professional with a rather annoying American women and her daughter. Electric bikes were a hit especially for our Mountain climb to the Basilica which housed amazing views of Lyon.

The tour was magnificent and so was our guide. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. The bikes were easy to handle and the fact that they are electric definitely made the journey easier and fun. Thank you!
