An excellent tour, Roger had scheduled everything I wished to see and because we had time, he included a number of other sites of interest, such as the memorial to John Macrae and Polygon Wood. Lunch was at a delightful cafe / restaurant with garden setting. The stop off for a Trappist beer also enjoyable. All topped off with attending Last Post at the Menin Gate at 8pm and locating the name of another Great Uncle, the third of the 3 Great Uncles who never returned home to New Zealand from WW1.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Mary, it was a pleasure for me to drive you through Flanders Fields. I am glad we found the three sites were your great uncles are commemorated or burried.

Thomas HanUnited States
Wow Roger is an amazing guide! We wanted to learn about the culture and history of Belgium and boy is Roger the perfect person. He is just such an amazing fountain of information. We really got an amazing picture of what life was like in the 15th century. We especially loved his historic picture of Ghent, what a great way to appreciate the past. We spent 9 hours in Roger's hand and what a wonderful treat he was. We could tell he takes pride in his work and we truly appreciated his energy & knowledge
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Thomas, it was a pleasure for me too, and a special experience as I hadn't done three cities in one day yet. have a fine summer ! Roger
Ruth SmithUnited Kingdom
Thank you to Roger for considering all our family's needs. We enjoyed sampling the Belgium beer and waffles. It was such a shame that Phoebe's wheelchair chassis cracked and we weren't all able to access all the tour, but Eleanor and Tim did get to shop for Belgium chocolates, learn more about the historical sites of Bruges and Roger ensured that we safely returned to the cruise terminal in time. We hope our unfortunate experience won't deter you from offering accessible tours for other disabled visitors.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your kind feedback, I enjoyed showing you, Phoebe, Eleanor and Tim around in Bruges, and remember the warmth of your family. Thanks also for your tip about the transfer from the cruise ship to the port gate. This is something which I will mention from now on. take care and hope to see you a gain in Belgium ! Best regards, Roger
Devin Chin-LeeUnited States
Roger is a very professional, thoughtful, and well prepared guide. We would definitely recommend him. He was attentive to our desires and was very flexible and did not hesitate to change the itinerary when more time was requested at certain sites. He shared with us facts that are not readily apparent which enhanced our time with him. We also appreciated his notebook filled with photos of the works of art the we would be seeing so that he could give us a mini lesson before our viewing. Thanks Roger!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for those kind lines, Devin and Bruce. I enjoyed spending the morning with you in Bruges and hope to see you again ! Take good care of and enjoy your granddaughter and children ! Best regards, Roger

Lisa HenthorneUnited States
On our shore excursion we wanted to go further afield to Brussels and what a great day Roger planned for us. We were interested in seeing tulips and saw what we considered to be better than Kuekenhof at the much smaller, less crowed Floralia at the Chateau de grand-Bigard. We were thrilled to be able to go to Royal Greenhouses at Laeken open to the public for only 3 weeks during the year. Old town Brussels was quite the finale to wonderful day. Roger was efficient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to meet!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for the kind reaction; It was a pleasure to guide you through Brussels Lisa ! Roger

Margaret ComptonUnited States
We had an excellent tour with Roger. He is very knowledgeable and was well prepared, including a folder with pictures that greatly added to the experience. We thoroughly enjoyed his company as well as the historical and current information he shared about Gent and Brugge. Roger very graciously accommodated our extra needs for my mom who has limited mobility. If we are ever able to return to the area we will definitely request Roger for another tour. Thank you!

Derald RossUnited States
We spent a memorable day with Roger in Bruges. He is witty, well-informed, considerate and he gave us an absorbable level of information. We went at a relaxed pace that allowed for shopping and an excellent lunch. I am a lawyer, so Roger took us to law-related sites. Although we booked a walking tour, Roger drove us to Flanders fields and other WWI memorials, which were moving and important. Roger's fluent English---including nuances---made the experience enjoyable and lasting. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for the feedback, Joann. I enjoyed the day with you and Steven too. best regards, Roger

Shayne ThomasUnited States
Roger far exceeded my expectations! He could not have taken better care of me! He politely took my luggage, pulled it to his very nice and clean vehicle, made sure I was comfortable and gave me a bottle of water. He then drove me to immigration to get my passport stamped, taking care of all of the oral communications for me. He was so polite, professional and informative. He answered all of my questions and shared so much valuable knowledge, wisdom and insight. The experience lasted longer than I thought
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thanks for your kind reaction, Angela and Shayne; I have good memories of that July 7th too. Hope to see you again !
Gillian O'ConnorNew Zealand

Larry KayeRockville, MD, United States
Roger was a great guide in Bruges. So knowledgeable in all of the historic details of the city, and gave us such a complete tour -- especially since our time there was so limited. He was really helpful with pre-tour arrangements. Everything was timed perfectly. He had a great sense of humor and we really enjoyed getting to know him during our trip. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Bruges or other parts of Belgium . His tour was one of the highlights of our trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Larry; I enjoyed your and Casey's company and am glad you enjoyed Bruges ! Hope to see you again !
