Lille City Bus Tour
Feb 2020 • Couples
Went to Lille for the first time, for a day trip. It felt a safe town to walk round. It’s a lovely town, with lots of history. Lots of cobbled streets with beautiful old buildings. The tour took you around the town and with audio guide telling you about the buildings and town. The driver pauses the video when traffic slows down so it’s not racing ahead. He also gives you extra information and points out buildings so that you don’t miss anything. He spoke good English also. Very enjoyable trip. We had already walked most of the streets but went back to the museums we had missed after the tour. You do need to go to the tourist information to get tickets printed from emailed/printed tickets you received when booking online. Would recommend.

Great Service
Oct 2019
As 2 of the only 4 people on board who needed the English translation I was impressed with the driver's additional explanations. The recorded tour is fine but he added a few extras and carefully translated them all for us. And he even parked up a few times so we could take extra photos too.
At the moment a few of the roads in the old town are closed, but he got as close as possible to the house where Charles de Gaulle was born so we could look down the street while he talked about the French War Leader's history.

I travel with a small folding mobility scooter, but didn't need to wheelchair access as I can do a couple of steps with assistance. However, they apparently take a wheelchair.

Good but don't buy it separately.
Jun 2019 • Friends
Good experience. Great way to get an overview of the city and see how close things are. Just don't purchase this from T.A. separately if you intend to get a City Pass as its included and it is approx 50% of the cost of the 24hr pass.

Jul 2018
You would expect a tour bus to be an open topped double decker but in Lille it is an open topped mini bus. The tour was well worth the cost and we did see some areas of Lille that we probably wouldn't have seen on foot in a couple of days, however I feel the tour was a bit rushed and there was no facility to hop on/off which is what you come to expect.

This tour was very informative, helping us to decide on the spots we wanted to go back and visit. Our driver not only provided supplementary information but loads of entertainment simply because of his big personality and good humour. Definitely a treat not to be missed!
