    Our afternoon spent participating in the Scavenger Hunt was a resounding success for all three of us. The youngest, aged 12, led the expedition with complete confidence and enthusiasm, whilst his mother and grandmother followed delighting in the sights and history revealed in the commentary. It proved a most enjoyable, entertaining and informative introduction to Lille, which has so many wondèrful treasures and is at the same time such a friendly,vibrant city. It was without a doubt the highlight of what proved to be a fabulous break and the perfect introduction to La Vie Francaise for my grandson.

    We traveled with our 2 kids (aged 12 and 7). As you can imagine sometimes it’s hard to keep them interested in something that it’s not their phones… But seems like this worked out great! They were still using their phones, but instead they were exploring the city and interacting with us. It was lovely.

    This was a really fun way to explore Lille. It’s so easy to use and you can pop in and out of the app to take photos or to walk around. The sites aren’t more than a 10min walk away from each other; and the game starts and finishes close by. It was a great way to explore Lille and to learn about Lille. I would do this again in a heartbeat.
