The tour was amazing and Marc was excellent. His knowledge of the history of Luxembourg was exceptional and he made everything so intriguing. The places we ate at were exceptional for quality and service. We had such a lovely time and meeting new people added to the experience. Would highly recommend Marc and the tour.

I loved our guide Marco, he was amazing! He gave us a history lesson at every stop we made and he made it really entertaining for the entire family. He also made sure the kids were comfortable and safe at all times. He made suggestions for us to come back to and for must see sights! A great tour overall.

We had an amazing tour with our guide (Cyril). He had so much knowledge of the city and history of Luxembourg. I would recommend to anyone who wants to see a lot of the city in just one day! The e bikes were so fun and easy enough to get used to.

The castle tours were both lovely and the transportation was great. The final stop on the tour was fine but we were all quite tired by the end of the day. The tour guides were great but maybe it was just too long of a day!

One of the best tours that i have been on. The tour guide is literally a history encyclopedia (seriously). Truly a wonderful experience and i highly recommend it.
