This tour was amazing, and even in the off season, we felt like we received a full experience to Luxembourg and Belgium. Roland was absolutely remarkable. He was extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant to talk to. Everything went very smooth. I would definitely book with Roland again if I were in this area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the nice Feedback. Roland
I had excellent time with Roland. He adjusted the tour according my specific interests during the tour, and was able to bring me a vivid picture of both past times and life in Belgium today!
An amazing Remembrance Day tour of the Canadian WWI battlefields with Roland. Started in Vimy and after Beaumont Hamel stopped in Neuve Chapelle before ending in Ypres for the Last Post at Menin Gate. Roland is a superb guide with vast and deep knowledge of the countryside and history. Very comfortable drive through the beautiful Flanders countryside. Really once in a lifetime opportunity to see all these sites in one day! Thanks Roland and Tours by Locals!

Roland was a very good guide. There were seven of us in our group and we spent one day exploring battle sites around Ypres and the second day in the area of The Somme. His itinerary included the most important sites and at the end of each day we had seen some amazing things and we had learnt a great deal. We bombarded Roland with questions and he very patiently explained the significance of the places we saw and the artefacts in the museums. He was also an excellent interpreter when shopping for lunch.

My husband and I took a Battle of the Bulge tour in Oct. Roland picked us up at our hotel on time and drove us from Brussels in his very comfortable car. As he drove, he related many stories about the war and specifically this battle. We visited the War Museum and the American cemetery where Patton is buried. The highlight was visiting the foxholes that the allies made during the battle. Thank you Roland for your knowledge and for this wonderful tour.

Roland was a fabulous guide. Navigating a medieval city on your own much less understanding what you are seeing is difficult to say the least. Roland gave us a complete tour with valuable historical insight and current information on Belgiium along with tips on shops, eating etc. Highly recommend
Suzanne DybleUnited Kingdom
Splendid day visiting Flanders Fields, Ypres, Paschendaele, Flanders Field Museum, Menin Gate & Tyne Cot. Roland is very knowledgeable and entertaining, sharing not only the history of the places we visited, but some of his own family's experience of the war. The day was emotional, very moving, fascinating. My mum travelled with a fractured pelvis & Roland was attentive, caring, going at our slower pace & being flexible with what we were able to do. I cannot recommend Roland highly enough - excellent!

Oct 19 2019 - Roland is a very good tour guide; he was prompt, knowledgeable and courteous. Roland - on very short notice - was able to guide me to the Ardennes American Cemetery in Neupre, Belgium where my late Father's buddy - both of whom were WWII POW's - is buried. Thanks to Roland, I further understand why these soldiers are part of "the greatest generation." Thank you again Roland.

We were cruising on the Oceania Nautica and going to spend a day in Bruges. Rather than spend the time with about 30 other passengers I reviewed Roland on Tours by Locals. He was very responsive. We caught a taxi from the port and made it to the train station to meet with Roland who started our tour by giving us a brief history of the area. This wasn't all stuff your face with food, but we did get to that part. The chocolate shop we went to was good enough for the queen and us too. Thanks Roland.

Roger FillerUnited Kingdom
Roland was punctual, professional and attentive to what we required. When the weather looked questionable he suggested other options we could pursue. His English was good and his style was relaxed but informative.

Roland was Fantastic! We had the best day in Bruges. He's a proud Belgium native and great ambassador. A great knowledge of history. He took us to great spots for chocolate, waffles and beer. We loved is personal touch and ability to read his group. I'd love to come back for his other tours. HIGHLY recommend....
Tempe KitsonUnited States
We give Roland a 5 star review. He did a great job of organizing the forts and museums in and around Liege we wanted to see, and somehow we did it all! Enjoyed learning about the history of the area as well as other points of interest to see next time we are here. Also a very calm and patient driver with all the traffic and construction issues. Thanks so much!
Daniel MeekUnited States

Lori DewetterEl Paso, TX, United States
Roland was wonderful. He met us at the train station in Bruges and took us on a fabulous walking tour of this beautiful town. His knowledge of the area was amazing and we loved learning about the history of this medieval village. He also took us to the best chocolate shop and to an amazing and true Belgian waffle cafe. The waffles were like nothing we've ever tasted and absolutely delicious. We also went to an authentic linen shop and had a demonstration of the original way lace was made. A perfect day!

Sandra VergaraUnited States
Not only was Roland an amazing tour guide who took us all around Brussels by car and by foot, who was very detailed and knowledgeable in his explanations on tourist sites and history of Belgium, who did not rush us and even stayed with us extra time, and was an all around great person to be with and talk to BUT he also saved my daughter and I when we left our passports in the safe of our hotel in Brussels. Thanks to him we didn't have to get emergency passports to travel back home and

Roland is the best tourbylocals tour guide we've used throughout the years. He was always prompt and communicated to us throughout the process. He is polite, professional and very knowledgeable. He allowed us to make decisions based on his suggestions. His car was immaculate, comfortable and stocked with water.

Kathryn (Kate) Clark-MayoOswego, NY, United States
Roland was extremely flexible, meeting us at our arrival at the airport, listening to our priorities in touring requests, showing us the highlights, and then delivering us to our hotel. He has a very interesting life story and is well versed in his country's history. This was a grand way to start our vacation abroad.
