Since always, LyonExplorer put all its efforts in giving you the best but, if you still have doubts, take a look at the comments on TripAdvisor:


– Is booking mandatory to participate in a free walking tour?

Yes, it is. In order to give you the best experience, we limit the size of the group. Especially in winter, if nobody booked, the tour won’t happened, so it’s really important to book. But if you forgot to book, don’t hesitate to come anyway, we never know!

– Are tours family friendly?

Our tours are family friendly. Nonetheless, if you have a stroller, you have to be aware that we’ll be climbing some steps. So, be prepared for it! The night tour is not violent and there’s no screamer but it is still some very dark stories. So, if your kid is very young, maybe it is not the best tour ever. But we accept everybody. It is your decision.

– In which languages are you offering your freetour?

Our main tour is in French and English.
Our night tour is in English only. But, for large groups or a private tour, we can provide tours in Spanish.

– Where and how can I find you?

Our main freetour is starting from the second main square of Lyon “Les Terreaux”, close to the fountain.
Our night freetour is starting from the main square of Lyon “Bellecour”, close to the big statue of Louis XIV.
We always have a huge white umbrella. So, you can’t miss us.
