    Una bonita experiencia! La Guía (Stephanie) muy buena, muy preparada y muy amena. Lo malo es que en grupos grandes y con la bulla exterior no se escucha bien. Deben proveer audífonos portátiles o algún sistema para que la calidad del tour mejore. O limitarlo a 10-12 personas máximo. Nuestro grupo era de casi 30 personas y al final pierdes el hilo y el interés porque no escuchas bien.

    Good visit, enriching and which brought us a lot of knowledge. The person making the visit is a connoisseur we realize that he loves his city (a little too much) he makes tons of it but he makes us share a lot of history and adventures concerning the city. But certainly Lille is a very beautiful city which deserves to be known !! Very beautiful monuments and the architecture is splendid!

    Very interesting guided tour of my city. We learned a lot and the guide was great! Too bad the rain was there! Small negative point for the tourist office which printed our tickets for us. On these were listed a sale price for the visit at € 8.80 while when booking, we paid € 11 per person ... I did not have more information except that of a " computer bug ". A gesture on their part would have been welcome ...
