An enchanting city, packed with architectural masterpieces, historical landmarks, and gastronomic delights.
Tracing back to its founding in 43 BC, Lyon has been luring people in for millenia. Set at the junction of the Rhône and the Saône rivers, its position as an industrial and commercial powerhouse has elevated it to notable heights (it's France’s third largest city). Today, it’s both a modern cultural hub and a testament to two thousand years of human history—in fact, parts of Lyon have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites. Plus, its fantastic food and wine scene is rumored by some to be the best in France. Explore more of Lyon with a Context private tour.

Perfect personal touch! thank you!
Magali was an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable and open to questions. We enjoyed our time with her and thought the tour was very worthwhile.
The walk was great. It's long and covers a lot of ground, but Magali was very knowledgeable, kept it moving and had a great sense of humor. Wish we had time for another walk here.
