A really nice and informational tour to do at your own pace! Walk through Lyon following the infamous footsteps of a hero while learning the history of Lyon! The quizes were fun to solve as well. I did the tour with my mother who is in her 70’s. We were able to stop to eat, drink, and shop along the way. I will be looking for this app in every city I visit in the future!
