Door to Door Service

A diverse tour which will provide something for everyone's taste. Our visits include the oldest town in Luxembourg, the only water garden in Belgium, as well as a brewery visit with tasting. We start by travelling to Jardins d’Annevoie, where we will find the stunning 17th centurywater gardens, home to some dramatic waterfalls, the "Grand Canal" and the water steps. Continuing to Freyr Castle and Gardens, we explore the 14th century castle, furnished by the 20 generations who have lived there, before strolling around the spectacular gardens. The village of Hotton was the western limit of the great German counter-offensive in the Ardennes in 1945. Here we visit the commonwealth Cemetary, containing 66 Commonwealth graves of WW11 soldiers. A guided tour of the Brasserie d’Achouffe is one of the Ardnennes most famous breweries and is well worth a visit. We head to Echternach, the oldest town in Luxembourg, considered to be the most scenic town in "Little Switzerland". Finally, we continue on our journey to Luxembourg, the historical capital, which has a fairytalequality thanks to its clifftop setting high above the gorges of the Alzette and Petrusse Rivers . The UNESCO- listed Old Town offers plenty to explore, including the Ducal Palace, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the fascinating Casemates – the underground tunnels used as WW11 hiding places.

In the afternoon we continue to Freÿr Castle & Gardens. Explore the 14th century castle, furnished by the 20 generations who have lived there before strolling around the stunning gardens.

Surrounded by 17th century ramparts, these once-impregnable military fortifications give the city its unique character. The UNESCO-listed Old Town offers plenty to explore, including the Ducal Palace, Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the fascinating Casemates, underground tunnels used as WWII hiding places.
