Roland

Brussels, Belgium

I am a Belgian native, originally from Ghent. I ran my own business for over 30 years and I was on the road almost every single day throughout Belgium and beyond.

When I retired, a couple of years ago I started working as a local tour guide. I felt that sharing my passion for my country and networking with people from all over the world could be a great way to happily turn 60 :-)!
Indeed, I have enjoyed every single minute of it ever since.
I love history, art, architecture as well as anecdotes, traditions and good food.
Be my guest and I'll show you what only insiders know of.
During my free time I love dancing salsa and I walk a lot!
I would be happy to be your private driver and escort you to any place of your choice. I provide lively, fun and entertaining commentary geared towards your own interest.
I am patient and flexible. It is your vacation and you deserve the best out of it :-)
