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!
