Brussels Waterloo Brussels with private transportation


One of the most famous battlefields in the world (and a very pleasant trip): Waterloo! Let me bring that crucial day in history back alive: climb the Lion's mound overlooking the battlefield, put your fingers in the holes made by the bullets of the Foot Guards defending the Chateau of Hougoumont and so much more.

Itinerary

I will pick you up at your hotel and take you to Waterloo, taking the road Wellington took in the night of the 16th of June 1815. Once in Waterloo we will visit the HQ of Wellington, the battlefield and the 1815 Museum, La Haie Sainte and La Belle Alliance (outside only), the HQ of Napoleon and of course Hougoumont. At the end of the day I will bring you back to your hotel.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will pick you up at your hotel or any other place of your convenience (provided it is in the neighborhood of Brussels). If it is anywhere else please contact me for an estimation of the additional cost (it is not certain that there will be any).

End location: Start and end of tour are the same, but it can be anywhere else (provided it is in the neighborhood of Brussels).

Duration: 7 hours

Transportation

I will drive you around in a private car (Volvo XC60 SUV- brand new) which offers space for up to 3 people. If there is a 4th person he will have to sit in the middle (less comfortable). If your party is bigger please contact me and I will provide a bigger car (for up to 7 people) at an additional cost (which will be communicated in advance).

What’s Included

Transportation in private car to Waterloo and back to Brussels and the guide.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

19 € - The "combi-pass" is 16€ and includes the "Memorial 1815" entrance fee (including the museum, Lion's Mound, Panorama and Hougoumont Farm). For 3€ more we can also enter the HQ's of Wellington and Napoleon.

What’s Extra

Food and drinks and the entrance ticket to the 1815 memorial.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dirk drove our party of 6 to the Waterloo battlefield and museums for the day. He was an excellent guide, personable and knowledgeable. We had an excellent day visiting all the relevant locations. If you have an interest in the battle, I cannot recommend this way of visiting it highly enough. I am sure Dirk would also be an excellent guide for the other locations he offers.
