Vieux Lille 2-Hour Guided Walking Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
An excellent tour with Nicola, a born teacher with a deep understanding and an obvious love of history. While she highlighted the Canadian experience, she was able to put it in the larger context of the whole WW1 story, for both combatants and the local life in the area. She was masterful at judging appropriate pace, and was most solicitous of my needs throughout the day. Best of all, she helped me reach a very personal goal. I owe her many thanks, and you should hope she will be your guide too.
Absolutely fantastic, from booking and arranging the time and pick up from our hotel to the tour itself! The two drivers who took our party of 6 (and our luggage after finding out our hotel was closing for the afternoon hours before we were due to leave for the tour) on an hours tour of the city, pointing out historical buildings of interest that lead to interesting conversation topics throughout the journey.
Our driver Maxine was very knowledgable and an excellent driver, particularly in the Citroen 2CV. The tour was an excellent introduction to the old part of Lille. The tour enabled us to return later and target specific areas we wanted to visit.
Stephen was a great guide with so much knowledge of the area and included personal stories to make the experience seem that much more real. I would highly recommend this to anyone I know who is traveling through Brussels.
The tour guide was so incredibly helpful and accommodating (I believe his name was Julien; I hope I am spelling that correctly). He really went above and beyond to make sure that our tour experience was phenomenal!
