If all your guides are like Ken then Bravo! Ken was super. He was very knowledgeable, informative and humorous. The walk was not strenuous at all, not too slow or fast; a very comfortable pace. At the end of the walk Ken gave a few recommendations for dinner. We used one of the recommendations and had a lovely meal. I highly recommend this tour.

It was a much more fulfilling tour than I expected. I was told that it would be over quickly because it's a small principality, but I was able to take my time and see things at my leisure, so it was good overall. I would definitely recommend this. However, it was a pain that the bus was full of seats because there were too many people.

Walid is a great guide. His local area knowledge is superb, and his method of presenting that knowlldge was exceptional. My third time in Luxembourgh, and thanks to Walid, the best visit of the three.

Great introduction to Luxembourg and Dinant. Our guide Miguel was very good, knowledgeable, very efficient and was able to be flexible when needed. It was a very enjoyable day trip.

Ken was a magnificent tour guide! Would definitely recommend this tour!
