LICENSED ACCREDITED TOUR GUIDE Stop being a tourist and become my guest!

Let me take you under my wing and show you what only the insiders know. Let's talk about history, art, architecture, . . but also about traditions, cuisine, daily life, customs and do's and don'ts. No long boring lectures; Enjoy anecdotes and personal conversations geared directly to your interests instead. Eat where I eat, shop where I shop and enjoy an insider's views on Belgium daily life.

I am a Belgian native and have been a full time tour guide for the past 25years!
I graduated from the University of Mons (E. I. I. ) Belgium (High School of Translators and Interpreters) and have a degree in European Tourism Management and Tour Guiding (CERIA, Brussels).

I love traveling and meeting new people. I have a passion for cultural diversity, customs and traditions. I am flexible, easy going and highly energetic. I like good food, anecdotes and local cultures. I will make you feel like you're spending the day with a friend.

I would be delighted to help you plan and customize any itinerary of your choice, in Belgium and beyond (Italy, France, The Netherlands, Luxembourg etc. ).

Please come over. . . and be my guest!

A Recent Review of this guide

Joyce was a delight. Very knowledgeable and kept things moving. She told us stories of her tours she also gives in Iceland, Switzerland, and other European destinations. We filed that in the back of our minds so we could use her places other than Belgium. Very nice tour.
