What people are saying about Lille

Public transport links are excellent, I was able to get to Ploegsteert using the pass. Many of the museums are not in Lille but surrounding areas so factor journey time in. Really easy to use and collect, don’t forget to activate it for both museums and public transport.

Very clear commentary, both via the headphones and the driver. A really good introduction to this fabulous city. I would definitely recommend this on the first day to help get your bearings and understand the city’s evolution. Plus the views!

Very worthwhile and efficient; in 48 hours we did 2 city tours, visited 3 museums in Lille, took the metro to Roubaix for the Musée de la Piscine and returned by tramway via the villa Cavrois.

The tour gives you a good impression about the town and his history. Not to long, not to short. Overall conclusion: excellent.

A great way to see the main sites of interest in the city. Good value for money.
