Guided walking tours

Cybèle - Fourvière

With the mission of helping people discover Lyon in a different way, the guides at Cybèle take you on an adventure through the streets of Lyon.

Put your knowledge of Fourvière and Vieux-Lyon (Old Lyon) to the test with a quiz. An opportunity for visitors aged 10 and over to see Lyon’s oldest districts in a different light. There will be fun, convivial breaks along the way to taste local specialities.

Are you a fan of Cluedo? If so, join one of Cybèle’s guides on an investigation that will take you through the streets of the Croix-Rousse. Who killed Bénédicte Buisson, who was found dead in the Cour des Voraces? Is her murder related to the mysterious fish bones? Only you can crack the case!

For tour groups, Trancitana organises puzzle-solving games throughout the city, which also offer a chance to sample Lyon’s fine culinary tradition.

Are you an art lover who likes to discover works in different ways? With guide book in hand, explore the Musée des Beaux-Arts (Museum of Fine Arts) as a group, as you solve puzzles related to the museum's major artworks.

The teams at Lyon Secret Défense look forward to sharing fun experiences in the city with you! Two game modes are available: crime is on the prowl, and you are tasked with solving a murder, with or against your team mates. Prepare yourself for a murder mystery on Fourvière Hill, in the Croix-Rousse or the Confluence district!

Urban explorers: a puzzle-solving game reveals Lyon’s little secrets. From Lugdunum to the Presqu’île and Croix-Rousse, the Code Quest adventure awaits you!

Looking for an alternative to walking?

Cyclo City Tours provides tricycle tours that are suitable for children in Lyon’s main districts. Here, the pedalling is done for you, allowing you to focus your energy on a mental, rather than physical, challenge! Sit back and watch out for every little detail, to answer questions and solve the mysteries. The tour ends with some well-deserved sweet snacks. With two seats per vehicle (and an additional seat for young children), you can book several tricycles to share the experience as a group.
