Es war eine sehr kompetente Führung zu den Highlights von Brüssel. Auch Brüssel-Kenner in unserer kleinen Gruppe haben viel Neues gelernt und Sie haben neue Sichten auf diese erlebnisreiche Stadteröffnet. Auch nach der Führung, als Sie schon gegangen waren, haben alle betont, dass Vera eine tolle 'Führerin' war. Herzlichen Dank also nochmals und alles Gute. Sollten wir nochmal nach Gent kommen, werden wir versuchen, dass Sie uns auch diesen historischen Ort näher bringen.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vielen Dank, Helmut. You and your company were a very pleasant and interested little group. Great to hear that even those who know Brussels well, still discovered new aspects. I'd be happy to show Ghent or Bruges to you all at a later moment, so don't hesitate to contact me. Give my regards to the rest of the group!

Vera was a great guide both in Bruges and in Ghent. She was knowledgable, curteous, accomodating, and helpful with meeting us at the train station in Ghent, helping us with our luggage and returning us back to the station after a day tour in time for our train to Amsterdam. She definitely made our time in both cities much more enjoyable and interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the 5-star review, John! It was a pleasure accompanying Marilyn and you in both Bruges and Ghent. I hope you enjoyed your stay in Amsterdam as well.

Vera was absolutely delightful. She took us to so many beautiful and seemingly hidden spots of Bruges that we would never have discovered on our own. She mixed history with great anecdotes that kept us and our tween age kids engaged for the full three hours. We cannot recommend her highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the wonderful recommendation, Josh! It was great to tour Bruges with you, Cynthia and the kids. I'm convinced you'll be back for more of Bruges one day...

Highly recommend Vera. She was very informative and answered our questions. The weather was very rainy and windy that day so we chose to cut our day short. Vera would have walked the entire day in the rain if we wanted. She found a very nice cafe that served Belgium waffles to drop us off.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kim, hopefully our delicious waffles brought some comfort after our rainy and windy walk. Please give my regards to the rest of the group.

Vera is excellent. She was our guide one evening in Ghent, then the following day in Bruge. We highly recommed her. She is very knowledgeable and fun to be with. I've been to Bruge before but never knew most of what she taught us and had never seen a lot of what she showed us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again, Joe. I really enjoyed the time we spent together in Ghent and Bruges. Glad I was able to pass on new information and introduce new things to you!

Vera met us in our hotel lobby on time. She did an excellent job conveying information about the history, architecture and culture of the city. In the three hours that we were together, we roamed the historic and the art districts of Brussels. She was easy to understand and welcomed our questions. We'd gladly recommend her for your tour of Brussels.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your nice review, Stu! It was great introducing you and Bonnie to Brussels. All the best from Belgium...

Vera shared so much with us throughout the day and made sure we saw everything we wanted to. Vera made our first experience in Belgium the best.
