Joyce was a wonderful guide. She shared her knowledge about the area, the history, it's languages and helped give us a broader perspective on the sites we were visiting. Also, Joyce was flexible and really tailored the tour to what we wanted to see. We even were able to adjust the time of pick up and drop off - to accommodate our wishes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Margaret for this nice feedback It was my pleasure welcoming you and showing you round All the best! Joyce
The tour was great and delivered all my expectations!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear It was a true pleasure to meet you and your wife and spend the day with you Joyce
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for visiting us! Joyce
For anyone wanting that personal touch and flexibility to tailor their tour I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Joyce and her associate Roland. Roland presented very fluently with sound knowledge of the area and its history. An added bonus was Roland's knowledge of local architecture and religious customs. Roland was very accommodating delivering on my personnel requirements and more for expectations on this tour. First rate service.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this nice positive feedback Kevin. It was our pleasure assisting you in exploring our country. We wish you and your beloved ones a happy new year! Roland and Joyce

Joyce was a super friendly guide for us during our short visit. She customised two days of tours to suit our group and our interests. We had one day travelling to Bruges and another to Ypres via Ghent - both of which we thoroughly enjoyed. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to friends visiting the city. We have used Tours by Locals extensively throughout the world and they consistently maintain a very high standard and Joyce was no exception.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judith, it was a pleasure having yu Joyce

Joyce is an agent here in Belgium and had sub-contracted the tour to a local guide. The guide's name is Georges D. He is a retired Lt. Commander in the Belgian navy and was outstanding. He has a vast knowledge about military history and knows the Flanders battle field sites well. The tour exceeded our expectations in every way. I think he was the best guide we have ever had and we have travelled extensively.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear This is Joyce.... Thanks a million for your rewarding feedback. I am actually not an agent but a tour guide myself but i work with a team of 8 colleagues who share my vision and comply to the same standards of quality and principles. We actually distribute tours according to our expertise and availability. Georges, indeed, seemed to be the right person for you and I am so happy to hear you enjoyed the tour! Thanks for your business ! Joyce
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: It is ToursByLocals policy that in the case where the guide actually giving the tour cannot be the person shown on our website, the customer is told before booking and agrees to the change.

Tour led by Christian, not I believe one of your guides but more a freelance. Very informative and my husband and enjoyed an immediate rapport with him. A thoroughly enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your valuable feedback. Christian is an expert in military history (Flanders Fields and Ypres) and his wife, Danièle is more into art and architecture. This is why you had them on different tours. Hope this clarifies. Thanks again for choosing us! Joyce
