What people are saying about Hauts-de-France

a very long day, starting in Brugge with an unexpected 2 hour walking tour of the city. visited the first war graves around 2pm with the stop including a quick sandwich lunch. Visited a number of historic sites and monuments arriving Ypres around 7pm. just enough time to grab a quick bite and get to Menin Gate for ceremony. back to Brugge around 9.30 pm. those picking up tour in Brussels had an hour before and after us to travel making it a 13 hour day! Johan was a good and informative guide and bus driver did a great job. A tip though, take plenty of water and some snacks as nowhere to purchase these other than lunch and dinner. Other than being a very long day, it was worthwhile

Wauuuu what a great experience. Our guide Rebecca with patience and professionalism made us literally immerse ourselves in the magical atmosphere of Montmartre. I closed my eyes and imagined myself in the Belle Epoque period, a neighborhood full of history and culture. We had lunch in a restaurant chosen by our precious guide excellent in both quality and service. Rebecca has left us a great desire to return, hopefully as soon as possible, to discover other places. Highly recommended Thank you Thank you Thank you :)

Really well organized tour. Our guide Rebecca was very knowledgeable. We walked a lot and saw a lot of things, which we would certainly not have been able to do on our own. I highly recommend it.

We had a wonderful time walking the streets of Paris. Adèle was just superb! It was the most joyful experience.

It was really fun to do this, though wished we could have seen a few more graves!
