    Dinant was lovely. Luxembourg was too short and honestly not that much to see. Would have liked a guided tour in the grund area.

    Three languages meant a bit of delay at each stop, but the guide (Johann?) did an excellent job with that.

    The tour was good, but doesn't provide enough time to see sites or have lunch in Luxembourg.
    Total time spent on the bus is 5H , but very little time to actually enjoy the city.

    We enjoyed the trip very much. Beautiful place and the tour guy was really knowledgeable and did an awesome job. Free time was great. Wish the tour walk was at s bit slower pace. He just wanted us to see a lot. 👍👍

    Despite booking an English speaking tour, our guide, Bruno,was prone to starting sentences in English and finishing them in French ..making commentary on the bus confusing at least and unintelligible at worst. Despite telling us he walks slowly so everyone could hear, most of our walking tour was more Marcel Marceau, with pointing fingers in many directions for the first few people, and no hope of the other 30 passengers being able to hear as we were forced to walk indian file on narrow footpaths, through construction areas and dodging traffic and bikes.
    The scenery was magnificent, from rolling green pastures to ancient fortresses and sparkling river scenes. Dinart's saxaphones were fabulous and the tunnel to the valley in Luxembourg was a marvellous respite from the 39 degree heat.
    Overall, 6 hours of travelling and cost did not meet our expectstions at all.

    I decided to join this day trip to Luxembourg and Dinant from Brussels because it seemed to be easier than trying to organize things on my own and it would help me add another country to my travel list, I am so glad I did!! Luxembourg was a bit of drive from Brussels, but the bus was comfortable and there were some stories / a stop to Dinant on the way. Once in Luxembourg we had about an hour or so for lunch and then we were given a comprehensive and beautiful walking tour through the city. Definitely felt like I had enough time to explore a bit on my own, and the country (or city of Luxembourg) was absolutely beautiful. I definitely recommend this day trip :)

    Trip was okay
    The guide was a bit rude to people
    On the coach we could not hear a word he was speaking at the back of the coach.
    He was sort on back round knowledge to many questions that were asked of him.

    A fantastic tour and value for money. So much to see. The coach was comfortable and our guide Johan was great.

    This was a great day trip which covered two nice places, Luxembourg City and Dinant. The trip was compact but still allowed sufficient time to see the major sites of the two places. The lady guide was great, professional and funny, and very knowledgeable and it was fortunate to have her as our guide. Unfortunately, our driver completely misunderstood the arrangement of departure time from Luxembourg City and made the entire group to wait in 30 degree temperature for 40 minutes for him to show up with the bus to take us to Dinant.

    A few days in Brussels and one starts to long for a place which has no crowds and the hustle and bustle of city life. Luxembourg was that place for me, where i was transported to a city with fewer inhabitants (many tourists though that one can't escape), a more leisurely lifestyle without hopping on and off trams and metros and with quintessential street side cafes which signify the European way of life.

    The Luxembourg Day Trip from Brussels, operated by Brussels City Tours was comfortable, value for money and informative. Our tour guide Andrea did a great job of marshaling the troops, explaining the significance of the places and the long history behind them.

    The stopover at Dinant while on the way back to Brussels was the highlight of the tour, with an hour to explore the city and enjoy a coffee in one of the numerous river side cafes that dot the place.

    Overall, a good experience although it felt a bit rushed. That is more because the distance from Brussels to Luxembourg takes a good 3 hours to cover.
