Miriam was amazing! She gave a very informative account of Luxembourg as well as Belgium whilst we passed through it. She would answer any questions you had. She spoke in 3 different languages one after the other to ensure all parties on the tour could know what was happening/around. Only thing is improve is the time spent in Luxembourg - there was about 3.5 hours we had there. I’d have preferred to set off earlier and spent more time there throughout the day. It’s a long day so pack snacks

Interesting tour during which the history of Luxembourg was integrated in an attractive way. A tour of a special kind, which can be an ideal start if you want to explore Luxembourg on your own for 1-2 days afterwards! The tour guide responds to the participants and tells stories that you can remember. That is always more attractive than a bombardment with facts! This event and this guide can only be recommended - without reservation!

Nice tour. Friendly staff and Super guides. Sufficient time provided to visit the waterfalls, Beaufort castle, Echternach town. At Vianden we chose to pay for the chairlift instead of visiting the Castle for which the ticket was provided.

The trip was awesome. The driver was very helpful and the guides were very experienced. I have visited most of Luxembourg in one day.

My guide Christophe was amazing and super accommodating despite the rain! Great tour
