Don't hesitate, go for it! This tour was awesome Nicolas is very interesting, he knew many stuff on Lille, he prepared the tour perfectly, and seemed to really like showing and explaining around. Because of all these, we discovered and learnt a lot, and we spent such a great time with him. Nicolas also managed to talk and explain in different ways which keeps it very fascinating (more historical point of view, or more comic, or more local-opinions...). Finally, the tour went super fast. On top of that, he managed to answer a lot of questions, which is very impressive (chapeau Nicolas) Every one can enjoy it, and will! Thank you very much Nicolas, it was a real pleasure

despite the rain, we enjoyed the tour very much. A good balance was made between anecdotes, history and the culture of Lille. We recommend it!

We stumbled across Nicolas who was with another couple just as he was about to start the tour and was a really good job we did as he gave a very informative tour of the places we'd just walked around without knowing anything about them. Would definitely recommend to anyone and he was a great guide! Thanks!

Nicolas was really knowledgable and fun. He explain us Lille’s history in an interactive way. The stops of the tour were relevant and it was a great vibe. His English is perfect. Highly recommended!!! It was a really cold day, and I would suggest maybe a coffee stop on the middle to warm up a bit. Also, last stop was quite far away from city centre and i feel it was a bit inconvenient (great place to visit anyway). Also, Nicolas answered all of our questions regarding restaurants/brunch/coffee shops. However I think it will be handy if you could create a document with some recommendations to share with the people who does the tour.

Response from lillefreetour, Gérant at Lille Free Tour
Responded Jan 20, 2020
Thank you for this very nice review and your constructive feedback! Concerning the coffee stop, we don't want anybody to feel pressured to buy anything during the tour, that's why we don't do it. We are always ready to indicate you a place to take a coffee to go during the tour though. About the ending point, we understand what you mean and we'll definitely keep it in mind. Regarding the list of recommandations, we hope the USE-IT maps that we give to visitors contains what you are looking for. Finally, we hope that you found a good place to warm up after discovering the city ;-) Kind regards. Nicolas
