What You Can Expect

Luxembourg Day Trip from Brussels: Two Countries in One Day

Visit the picturesque town of Dinant on your journey back from Luxembourg

Depart from your Brussels hotel in a spacious, climate-controlled vehicle and admire the rolling green hills of the Ardennes region as you travel to Bastogne. Famed for its brutal battle between American and German forces during WWI, the town is now an idyllic enclave shrouded in rich history.

Disembark at the Mardasson Memorial to reflect on the American soldiers killed at the Battle of the Bugle; listen as your guide describes the valiant efforts of the fighters and then wander through Place Général McAuliffe to hear of the heroic deeds performed by the US Army officer.

Cross the Belgian border to Luxembourg, a landlocked country famed for its Roman heritage and architectural beauty. Embark on a comprehensive sightseeing tour of the city with your guide, visiting alluring landmarks like the Royal Palace of the Grand Duke, the ambient Place d’Armes and the 17th-century Notre-Dame Cathedral.

Next, head to the modern side of the city to see prominent government buildings that play a pivotal role in the European Union. Hear of the history of the European Court of Justice and the Secretariat of the European Parliament and then revitalize with a traditional lunch in a local restaurant (own expense).

Enjoy some leisurely free time exploring the charming Old Town before returning to your vehicle for the scenic drive back to Brussels. On route, stop in the picturesque town of Dinant to marvel at its 13th century Gothic cathedral and 19th century citadel. You will reach central Brussels by mid-evening.

Disorganized on boarding...had to walk quite a distance to catch the bus. It was late and we had to stand in the rain for about 20 minutes. The tour was very good and the guide was excellent.The guide was very good and when he translated to 2 other languages, not at all distracting as it could have been because of his delivery. Would have been helpful with a restaurant recommendation.

I had a fantastic time on this trip!! Bruno was the tour guide and he is so funny and so knowledgeable. This is why I like taking tours, I can learn lots of interesting facts that you wouldn't know if you went on your own. We had plenty of free time, but not to much. The buses were clean and very comfortable. It was a great mix. Thank you and I would definitely recommend your company to friends that may find their way to Brussels.

Great guide and driver. Walking tour in Luxembourg was excellent. I wish we had left Luxembourg after that or shortly thereafter so that we could have spent more time in Bastogne. We were in Luxembourg on Sunday and nothing is open so we just sat around. Then we were unable to visit the museum at the memorial because of time limitations, which was disappointing. Bastogne had much more to offer but we just didn't have enough time there.
