Great opportunity to visit a new place. It would have been nice to offer some more specific add-ons/tours while in Luxembourg instead of 2 hours of free time (i.e. prebooking casements tour as it’s very popular and was sold out the day of). Dinant was beautiful but we arrived near 6pm when most things (church and citadel were closing/closed). There wasn’t much else to do for the hour stop. Overall a great experience with an excellent guide, though!

Very long trip so definitely nice to go in s confy bus, very informative and friendly staff. And the drive back to Dinant was amazing. That was probably what I like the best, wish we could have stayed a bit longer.

This was an excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend!

Beautiful tour. Miguel or guide was so great. And our driver was wonderful.

Great tour. Wonderful scenery to and from including Dinant.
