Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Local departure by coach, then to Belgium for a four-night stay at the 5-star Martin's Château du Lac Hotel.

  • Day 2 - Bruges and Ghent

    Our tour takes us first to medieval Bruges; a picturesque wonder of architecture with canals crossed by pretty hump-backed bridges, cobbled streets and shops selling the famous Belgian chocolate on almost every corner! The historic centre of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and exploring its many sights and sounds is a joy to the senses.

    Later in the day, we head to Ghent. Affectionately known as the ‘Flower Capital of Belgium’, Ghent is a city of great elegance, boasting a wonderful legacy of medieval architecture and imposing monuments. One of Ghent's most popular attractions is the City Pavilion; an example of modern building made almost entirely from glass, wood and concrete which provides a stark contrast in design to the rest of the city.

  • Day 3 - Dinant & Namur

    This morning we set off to Dinant, a beautiful town situated perfectly on the River Meuse. The skyline is dominated by the imposing citadel that sits high above the town, an ancient fortress that has lasted almost a millennium. The town itself contains the most impressive architecture in the Collégiale Notre Dame de Dinant; a Gothic marvel that boasts an impressive onion-shaped dome.

    On the way back to our hotel, we stop in the small town of Namur. At the confluence of the Meuse and Sambre Rivers, Namur is crowned by a vast citadel that was once one of Europe’s mightiest fortresses. The grounds of the citadel span 7km, with underground passages, gardens, stunning panoramic views of the valley and, strangely enough, a giant golden statue of a turtle. The old town offers many architectural treasures as well, including the baroque St. Loup Church which boasts marble columns and a richly carved ceiling.

  • Day 4 - Antwerp & Leuven

    Today, we offer an optional excursion to Antwerp and Leuven. Famous for being the diamond capital of the world and one of the major fashion cities of Europe, Antwerp is a stylish city which exudes charm and character. You will have time at leisure to explore the charming narrow streets, spacious squares and elegant boutiques that make the city such a cultural hub. You will see many fine examples of the Gothic architecture for which Antwerp is justly renowned, as well as the vibrant harbour complex.

    We also visit the vibrant student city of Leuven. Known for its breweries and KU Leuven, the oldest Catholic university in the world, Belgium's 8th largest city has a lot to offer its visitors.
