What started out as a rainy day, turned into a wonder as we visited "The Battle of the Bulge" and roamed the streets of Luxembourg City. Enjoyed going into shops that cater to the rich.
What a gorgeous place. We were shown around the main area of Luxembourg and had about 4 hours to spend on our own exploring this magnificent place. Be sure to walk around the valley and go bellow the bridges as well. Just beautiful.
Excellent Tour!!! Enjoyed seeing Luxembourg...
I loved this tour. Luxembourg is postcard beautiful. Very impressive. The war memorial and Bastogne were interesting. The drive was also very nice, through pretty countryside. Definitely a worthwhile experience.
This excursion included a brief stopover at Bastogne before arriving to Grand Duchy, capital of Luxembourg. Would be better if there was a 30 minute stop in town of Bastogne where we could purchase some souvenirs that commemorate the Battle of the Bulge and take a photo with the Sherman tank displayed in the town centre. The stop over at the American war memorial was too quick to allow visiotrs to read the inscriptions on the walls. The walking tour of Grand Duchy's Old Town was comprehensive, covering the entire place on the crest and down the valley. Very picturesque. No picture stop at new city unfortunately. At least one stop to take proper photos would be better instead of a quick orientation tour in the bus.
Great tour. beautiful lanscpes on the way to Luxembourg.
The Bus is late leaving again (3 trips with this company always late) , first stop is Mardasson Memorial where the "Battle of The Bulge " took place very moving , a couple of little stops along the way and then we are in the capital Grand-Duchy we do a tour of the modern city and then we stop for lunch (not included) lots of choices for places to eat. After lunch we continue to the historical centre and then have some free time to browse and do a bit of shopping. Then it is back on the bus for the Long Trip back to Brussels. Our Guide and driver where both great I dont think they missed a point of interest along the way. Wonderful day Luxembourg is a really beautiful place. A little bit of walking on this tour but not to bad.
I highly enjoyed this trip, even though the heat in Luxembourg was exhausting. The drive through the countryside is beautiful and the air-conditioned coach made it all the better. The tour makes a stop in Bastogne, where a monument is dedicated to American soldiers killed in the second World War. Luxembourg is a pretty country and has many good picture-taking spots, although it was crowded. If you are tired of planning your own trip and just want someone else to do rest of the work for one day, I'd highly recommend this tour.
Great trip, Luxembourg city was great and very clean. The guide did a great job walking us though the city and showing us the sights.
This was a nice tour for me and a great way to to visit Luxembourg. The tour was changed and did not go to Dinant. The World War II Memorial was excellent.
If you have little time to spend in Brussels, don't miss this tour to Luxembourg! You'll love it!
Extremely satisfied with the tour. The guide was very good and funny! His one liners didn't stop throughout the day and it made the whole trip that much more enjoyable. A fair warning though that Luxembourg is a fair bit away from Brussels and the drive WILL take about 2-2.5 hours (depending upon traffic ofcourse). But, it's not all that painful a drive as the bus is comfortable to have a quick snooze. Luxembourg as a city is quite nice and there is plenty of time for a walk around the city centre with the tour guide and to do your own thing (you can take a one hour city train that drives you around the main city areas for like EUR9). On the whole, highly recommended a tour and ideal value for money.
Luxembourg was a delight. Our guide was very pleasant and knowledgable and friendly; atune to the needs and requirements of those on the trip (IE: bathroom breaks and food for children travelling with us) He also made a point to speak to everyone on the tour, imparting little bits of information, and ensuring those who did not speak one of the main languages (English, French or Spanish) were assisted as best he could.
Our tour did not go to Dinant, but instead to the war monument for the Battle of the Bulge. While I was not expecting this, it was very interesting to see and again the guide was quite knowledgable regarding the history.
Arrived in Luxembourg, he led us to the square for lunch. Unlike the guide on the Bruges trip, he did not endorse a particular restaurant or vendor; and when the group reconvened after lunch he led us on a leisurely, informative walk of Luxembourg; leaving plenty of free time at the end.
Luxembourg itself is a beautiful city with many gardens and lovely pathways to walk and stroll. I wish we had more time there. And despite the fact that it was a SUnday, and there were no shops open, I found it a real treat to be able to observe the native Luxembourg-ians on a typical Sunday. A slice of life.
Excellent day tour and I definately recommend it for those who would like to see some lovely countryside and a charming city.
This was a well-run, well-guided trip, led by a knowledgeable guide who deftly juggled 4 languages. The first stop was a 1-hour sojourn in Dinant, a town of brick and stone buildings sprawled along the river Meuse. Its main claim to fame is that it was the lifetime home of Adolphe Sax and birthplace of his eponymous instrument, and saxophones are found everywhere.
A journey through the lovely Ardennes, a landscape of forests and fields, takes you to Luxembourg, a city of many high, long bridges, spanning the river and several deep chasms. The low spots are full of buildings and parks, linked by lots of steps and steep roadways. We had only 3 hours there, but we got a very comprehensive walking tour, a chance to explore a few buildings, and 1 hour of free time to prowl. The ruins of the original 10th-century castle that founded Luxembourg are still in evidence, and there's a cathedral with an enormous crypt. Guarding the tombs of the grand dukes are a particularly impressive pair of bronze lions.
Rain tried to play a spoil sport on our trip to Luxembourg. But it only made the trip more enjoyable. We are happy to see the scenic country side of Belgium including Namur, Dinant, Notra dame, Saxophone, landscape views are truely amazing on the way to Luxembourg. L'burg city on Sunday is a bit quiet. But we had a good time.
