Unfortunately we didnt get to go on the 1st April as the bus driver was ill, but our trip was rearranged for 2nd April at 11am. Trip was excellent, very informative and the head sets, with English commentary were cery good and I liked the bits of film that went with it, to show you the inside of some of the buildings.
very easy and straightforward to book and tour gives a good way to see Lille on a quick visit.
Absolutely fascinating tour through a lovely city, really good for learning about Lille and getting one's bearings. Well worth going on.
A great start to a fabulous weekend , we took the city tour to get our bearings and went back to visit all the places of interest to us.
A great tour. We're used to doing walking tours so going on the bus was a pleasant change. The tour guide information was good and the driver was excellent. We're really glad we saw Lille this way
I had been to Lille many times mainly as a stop over for one night. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour, saw Lille in a different light. The driver was very helpful and appeared to speak many languages. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Very good and informative. We learned a great deal about the City in a short time. With plenty of time left to eat and drink then.
Tour was good, only a small van seating about 12 or so passengers and the guide was knowledgeable, a great orientation of Lille and we saw things we would not have seen from our hire car. We LOVE Lillie.

My wife and I enjoyed the sightseeing tour around Lille. We would recommend it to anyone who is visiting this city as a way to see the important sights and highlights of the city.
Nice to look around and see different kind of buildings, monuments and others... Also my knowledge of the history of Lille is bigger now! :-)

A short little ride but I would surely do it again if I get to go again.

It was a comprehensive trip around Lille showing everything the town had to offer. The driver was very informative. My only concern as a severe asthmatic was that a fellow passenger took a dog on board - don't know if this is usual for the French! We managed to communicate, and he sat at the other end of the bus.

Would have liked the opportunity to get off and on the tour buses at random. But despite this, we did enjoy the tour.
Good tour which was much appreciated on a very cold day trip. Breaks the day up. 50 minutes is a good tour length.

The 50 minute bus tour provided an overview of the city. It pointed out the major sites of Lille and identified places you may want to go back and visit.
Plenty of good information but disappointing not to have either a transcript or subtitles for my deaf father which I had alerted on my original booking.Overall the three of us that could hear the audio guide were pleased but couldn't increase this by sharing comments and ideas with the forth member of our party. The driver was extremely courteous and helpful as well as apologetic!
The tour was interesting but I would have preferred it if it was wider and covered the Citadel.

Stayed at the Hotel Lille Europe and could not believe how close it was to Eurostar. We did worry about the noise but there was no need, the soundproofing at the hotel was perfect. The only down side was how hot the room was. It was not a particularly hot weekend and I dare to think how hot the room would be then. We obtained a fan from reception which was a blessing. The rooms are basic, clean nice white sheets, small mini barfridge all drinks 2.50E, sachets of shower gels and a not so good shower in our room 600. Breakfast was typical continental - cold boiled egg, ham, brie, yoghurt, fruit, croissants, bread, cereals and plenty of tea and coffee. Reception very friendly. Was surprised with the amount of beggars with children and lots of dogs - very sad. We went on the city tour which was quite informative although this was through headphones on the coach rather then a guide. Had the customary Moules, Frittes and beer. A nice weekend away before starting another week at work!
The tourist office was closed until 2pm on Monday 16th March, therefore, the earlier sightseeing tours, had not taken place. The first tour of the day, left at 14.10 and we arrived back at 14.50 Not the hour, we paid for, therefore very disappointing. On going into the Tourist Office on our return, two staff members did not understand what I was complaining about, so we left in disgust. i have been longing to write this review, to air my dissatisfaction.
