An excellent way to discover a city full of history thanks to a guide passionate about his region and with a flawless knowledge of the heights of France.

Friendly cultural walk in Lille Speaker listening to the smiling participants with whom we braved the cold

This visit is perfect, even too short

perfect visit, nothing to say except that it is too short despite the 2 hours 30.

Reasonably interesting. The second hour was better than the first.

Thank you for this visit. We learned a lot about Lille.
