Lamentablemente se canceló el tour cuando ya estabamos en el punto de encuentro ya que un grupo que habia reservado no se presentó y no llegabamos al minimo de personas requerido. Sin embargo, Sara fue muy amable y nos respondio a algunas preguntas rapidas de la ciudad y nos compartió un mapa con puntos de interé para visitar la ciudad por nuestra cuenta.

Sara nos hizo ver otra parte de Lyon, fue muy amable. Nos explicó, además, ese tipo de cosas de las que no te das cuenta y son las que le dan personalidad a la ciudad. Lo único es que el tour es en una zona algo complicada de llegar andando, por lo que recomiendo ir en metro para llegar. El tour se hace cuesta abajo, así que por ahí no hay problema. Muy recomendable!
