Some testimonials

  • With my group “On Invitation Only” I experienced two fantastic tours in Leuven under the expert guidance of Christel: this is how a guide should be: clearly understandable, involving his audience in the subject matter, regularly with an anecdote! Christel has all this in abundance! Top!!!
