Lille Driving Tour by Convertible Citroen 2CV

1. Lille Driving Tour by Convertible Citroen 2CV

Take a retro guided tour of the beautiful city of Lille on board an iconic Citroen 2CV, as idiosyncratically French as a beret or baguette. Tours can vary from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, with room for up to 3 passengers. Riding in the famous car, feel the vroom-vroom of its tiny engine (2CV literally means "2 tax horsepower"). Lean over at every bend in the road and enjoy the vintage upholstery. If the weather’s right, you’ll tackle the cobbled streets with the roof rolled back and the wind in your hair. Your driver-guide will tell anecdotes about the city at every nook and cranny en route, and they'll advise you on the best places to go when you’ve regained your street legs. Lille is an ideal city to tour in a 2CV; the streets are narrow, and though the cobbles might shake and rattle your bones a bit, you'll feel every part a native.

Lille: 2-Hour Segway Tour

2. Lille: 2-Hour Segway Tour

Choose to start your 2-hour Segway tour of Lille by getting picked up from your accommodation or meeting your guide at the starting point. Wander along the walls of the well-preserved Citadelle and get acquainted with 17th-century military architecture. Then, head to the heart of the Old Town and soak in the elegant atmosphere of "le Vieux-Lille" in front of the neo-Gothic Notre-Dame de la Treille. From there, wander on to reach the oldest monument in Lille: the Hospice Comtesse. Originally used as a hospital, the Hospice Comtesse today hosts a historical museum that immerses you in the lifestyle and historical events of previous centuries. Next, ride along the Rue de Gand, taking time to appreciate its collection of typical "estaminets" (combination cafe-pub-restaurants). Leap back into the 21st century with a stop in Euralille, the modern commercial center that shows how the capital city of Flanders has changed with the times. Finally, arrive at La Place du Théâtre and La Grand Place to check out the Opera and the famous Vieille Bourse, the old stock exchange that stands today as one of the city's most important monuments.

What people are saying about Nord-Pas-de-Calais

We had a fantastic Segway tour with Franc. We are experienced riders and he immediately recognised this and adjusted our tour accordingly, allowing us to travel more quickly to see more sights and travel over more challenging terrain. But he also ensured that he pointed out any potential hazards clearly as any experienced Segway tour guide should do. We are learning French and along the way Franc gave us lots of great tips on how to learn the language more easily which was really helpful. His knowledge of Lille was excellent and he told us lots of interesting facts along the way. He also made an effort to engage us in conversation beyond the scope of the tour. We have been on many segway tours in different cities and countries and this is one of our best ever. Thank you Franc for an amazing time.

Great way to view and learn more about Lille. Our tour guide was great. Friendly, knowledgeable and gave us some suggestions of places to visit and eat. He even had to deal with the car breaking down and fixing it, didn't bother us was all part of the experience. Would highly recommend.

This was an amazing trip. Yohan our guide was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond and ensured we saw different memorials /cemeteries related to our homeland, mine being New Zealand. Thank you.
