Owner description: A retro guided tour in a 2CV in Lille.Suffering from nostalgia for the cartoon Frog with his beret, baguette and famous 2CV?Then come and join us for a unique day out! Riding in the famous “duck” you really feel the vroom-vroom of its giant engine! Like it, you lean over at every bend in the road and breathe in the odour of its upholstery! And if the weather’s right, you’ll tackle the cobbled streets of Lille with your hair blowing in the wind. Your driver-guide will tell lots anecdotes about Lille at every nook and cranny of the route and can advise you on the best places to go…This is for all those who like a touch of nostalgia on holiday. It's a bit of a cliché, but what's wrong with that?

This company does their utmost to make the trip a great experience. We booked a trip but did not specify a time or pick up place, yet they still managed to find us at our hotel and give a super evening tour of the old town (with Champagne thrown in too). Sundays are best to avoid traffic, although don't expect... More

We had a wonderful hour around Lille this past Sunday in the company of our incredibly knowledgeable and charming guide - the perfect way to explore the city, see hidden areas, learn stories both historical and anecdotal, all while relaxing in the back of a cool 2CV that turns heads wherever we went. Pick up from our hotel right on... More

The only way to see Lille is in a classic 2CV with Tradi'Balade! I really enjoyed the experience and our guide (Antonin) was fun yet very knowledgeable and professional. We finished with a chocolate tasting in a lovely old Chocolaterie. Highly recommended, I would do this tour again.
