A fantastic way to see the Old City of Luxembourg. Christophe was fantastic, informative and of good humour. Great knowledge of the "basics" of Luxembourg history, but also wonderful stories and facts. You can tell he is passionate about his home city.

Very long trip so definitely nice to go in s confy bus, very informative and friendly staff. And the drive back to Dinant was amazing. That was probably what I like the best, wish we could have stayed a bit longer.
