Discover Lille secrets and experience


Did you know that Lille means island? Let me take you around our treasure island and reveal to you some of its legends, secrets and anecdotes during our walking tour.
You will discover the history of Lille as we wander around the old city and admire its remarkable architecture, middle age houses and nice stores. I will also share with you all the best addresses so you can continue to enjoy your stay in Lille after our tour.
Of course, during our tour we can enjoy one of our local beers, cheese or local waffles.

I can also customize this tour based on your interests and time availability, so do not hesitate to contact me as I can't wait to explore Lille with you.

A Recent Review of this tour

Severin D was amazing. A few days before the tour, at my request, she recommended and booked a restaurant for and my partner which we enjoyed very much. She took the trouble to direct us to the restaurant from the train station. She met us outside the restaurant right on time to take us on the city tour. Severine was very knowledgeable and organized a very interesting tour with very interesting stories and comments. We highly recommend Severine as a tour guide.
