Customer Feedback

Thomas D. from USA after tours in Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp and Brussels in July 2019:

Hi Roger,

Happy Holidays to you. Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your tour last summer. It was a great pleasure seeing all the beautiful cities in Belgium not to mention seeing Eddy Merckx in person. We will always have fond memories of our vacation thanks to you. For your own sake, please keep out of Ghent on Fridays in the summer.

Hallo Roger, 

Bedankt voor alweer een geslaagde gidsing. We hebben veel positieve feedback gekregen.

Dear Roger,

Georg and I wanted to thank you for the invaluable contribution you brought in making our time in Brussels a memorable trip for our guests.

We can gladly state that not only did you exceed our expectations but awakened our interest in the culture, history and people of Brussels.

We will definitely recommend your services to any future prospective clients in our circle, and – as already stated – Antwerp is on our personal list, hopefully soon.

All the best,

Elke K.,


Jody F. from Pittsburg Pennsylvania after a private tour in Bruges in September 2019:

Nice day with Roger. We were lucky to observe a ceremony and seeing the brother of the King of Belgium. Roger did a great job showing us around.


Bill B. after a private tour to the Henry-Chapelle American Cemetery in September 2019: 

Thank you again for driving us to the Henri Chapelle American Cemetery today. My wife is giving her mother all of the details on the phone, and it has made a very old American lady very, very happy. She cried. You did a good thing today for somebody you never met.



Vinode C. from Florida USA after a half day private tour in Brussels in July 2019:

Roger was a well-informed guide with a very structured itinerary. We saw the highlights of Belgium, and there were a lot! There were a few opportunities for picture taking and Roger was nice enough to act as photographer on some of them. We wanted a tour that provided on opportunity to see the highlights of Belgium, and Roger delivered.

Mike M. after a private tour to Ghent in July 2019:

Five out of five stars. Very knowledgeable, companionable and attuned to our interests. And extremely patient with my constant stream of random and unrelated questions. Excellent experience. Highly recommended.



Thomas D. from USA after private tours in Brussels, Antwerp, Bruges and Ghent in July 2019:

Roger was a perfect match for what I had in mind when I was planning my trip. He was flexible, informative, and aware of the proportion of time I wished to spend on each city site. Highly recommended.

Jim C. from Canada after a private tour in Vimy and Flanders Fields in June 2019:

Roger was a very helpful and honest guide who went out of his way to make our experience enjoyable. He made us aware prior to booking that he was unfamiliar with Vimy but his knowledge of Belgium was great. He also took extra time to show us highlights of Brussels and Ghent which were not on the itinerary. We would highly recommend Roger and thank him for a great day.


Katherine S. from USA after private tours in Bruges and Brussels in April 2019

Roger gave us a very professional and interesting tour of Bruges. He picked us up at our B&B, which was about 1.5 hours drive from Bruges! Roger was very attentive to our interests and requests - Made sure we saw Michelangelo’s Madonna and Child, in St Peter’s church, which he knew was at the top of our list. 

Roger gave us a very professional and interesting tour of Brussels. We met at the Atomium. Saw the beautiful Church of the Holy Heart, comic strip murals, etc. Roger was very attentive to our interests and requests.


Joanne L. fom London after a private guided tour in Antwerp in May 2019:

Roger took 12 English visitors on a four-hour walking tour of Antwerp. I had exchanged a few emails with him beforehand about what we wanted to see and he was very flexible. His knowledge is excellent, he showed us a wide variety of buildings and was very patient with our questions (and the slowness of a couple of us!) Antwerp is a wonderful city and we all felt we had a really good introduction to what it has to offer. Several of us visited places again the next day. Highly recommended.

David S. of Furman University in Greenville, USA after a tour Waterloo in March 2019: 

Thanks, Roger gor the wonderfully full tour of Waterloo today.  You have a good talent for providing just the right amount of information, and good quality info at that.

Colleen M. from Texas USA, after a private tour of Bruges and Ghent in March 2019:

Roger is great. He knows all the history around Bruges and Ghent. 2 must go to locations!

David S. of Furman University in Greenville, USA after tours of Bruges and Ghent in February 2019: 
Dear Roger,

We got back to Brussels in one-hour and fifteen minutes without incident.  I enjoyed the scenery.  They students slept.  Many thanks for the group photos.  I’ll send them on to the students.  We enjoyed ourselves on the two-day excursion and are looking forward to Waterloo and Ypres.  I’ll attach a couple of photos of you, thinking that you probably don’t get that many, and one other shot.  Thanks again.



Wim v.H. uit Nederland, na een rondleiding in Antwerpen in februari 2019:

enthousiaste gids bij de rondleiding van Antwerpen. Zeer de moeite waard

Erika K. of Ansell Healthcare after a private guided tour in Brussels in February 2019:

Hi Roger,

Thank you for accommodating the last minute request from me, and wonderful experience in Brussels last week!

My customer was quite impressed and loved the experience.

Le Schelthema was also nice, great mosselen with correct pricing, and good attentive services – mu guest really loved it too.

Invoice duly received, will process it and hope to have another opportunity to work with you!

Best regards,



Maureen W. after a private tour in Brussels and Antwerp in January 2019:

Roger was a wonderful, punctual, ambassador of Brussels and Antwerp. He thoughtfully planned our visit and took extra time to explain the history, architecture, and culture of the city while including conversation about contemporary issues. The tour was informative and fun. Roger fielded our many questions with thoughtfulness and humor.

Tiina M. of CWT Meetings & Events after a tasting tour in Brussels with EventMasters in January 2019:

Dear, beautiful Dawn & Catherine!

I cannot believe it’s already been a week since our return from fabulous Brussels… On behalf of our extended management team in the Nordics, I want to thank you and Event Masters in Brussels for treating us like royalty on Tuesday, Jan 15th!

I collected feedback from my colleagues after our trip and I would be super happy if you could share this with the Brussels team:

“The walking activity was well balanced, good pace and exciting facts and fun stops along the way.

Our guide Roger was excellent and just well-balanced in the depth he spoke about the different sights and places. When being asked he was happy to tell much more.”

“Great activity and even though we didn’t have a lot of time we got a great experience and a taste of Brussels. The guide was really great and I will definitely go back and do a longer trip.”

“Amazing to look and feel so much of the city and the culture in 2 hours. The guide Roger was one of the key factors for a memorable tour, knowledge with always a twist and as well a smile. The stop along the way were amazing and the gifts from each of them….. we were very spoiled. Here as well super nice people from the DMC both local and global and the network and connection is so important!”

“Super great activity, such a fun way to see and taste the city! Great guide!

It was really great to meet Dawn & co, nice touch that they flew in to meet us. I think we share a very common ground on how to work together (get to know each other in person) can’t wait to get them connected to the team!”

“Very much appreciated! I mean, they flew over from Chicago and Boston. The whole tour/activity was perfect and the guide was really good.”

“Great for our purposes. And we got really spoiled!”

“The walking sightseeing tour was really nice, a good combination of history and leisure.

"Great tour – good info, nice tour guide, fantastic to “taste” Brussels along the tour and I felt like a kid during Christmas where the surprises just kept coming. So thanks for organizing this for us – it was fantastic.”

What can I say – I concur with all my colleagues comments and once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the trip (which was highly appreciated as you can read from the comments). I think you now have a great window of opportunity to contact my colleagues in Sweden and Denmark for the office visit that couldn’t materialize last spring due to our technology implementation being in full swing when you tried scheduling."



The Brooding Soldier

Zoe H. of ThromboGenics after a Tour in Brussels in June 2018:

Hi Roger,

Just wanted to reach out to say thanks again for a wonderful tour of Brussels. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and learned a lot of history - thanks to you.

I will keep your contact information for future reference. It is a small world, and I welcome you to NYC anytime you get the chance.

Wishing you all the best,


Stanley C of Uniglobe Five Star Travel after a private two day tour in Brussels, Bruges and Ghent in July 2018

Good afternoon, Roger

The Forniss family had a great time. Your guiding and assistance, during their recent trip to Brussels and the full day outside the city, was excellent.

They were very complimentary, appreciative and would highly recommend your services to future travelers.

Kind regards,


Karen B from Arizona, USA after a private guided tour in Flanders Fields in July 2018:

The tour was perfect for me, Roger was on time, very knowledgeable and personalized the tour around my interests. He offered a variety of options for me to select and was very thorough in his approach. He even helped me locate my ancestors names on the Menin gate. I highly recommend him to anyone. He even assisted with other cities I am visiting while I am in Belgium.

Randall B from Georgia, USA after a private guided tour in Bruges in July 2018:

On out brief tour with Roger, he was great. Would certainly use him again.

Richard A. of USA after a private guided tour in Brussels in July 2018:

Roger was extremely knowledgeable, interesting and accommodating. He made a trip to Brussels special. He was exceptionally prepared And organized.

Mary C. of Christchurch, New Zealand after a private tour in Flanders Fields in July 2018:

An excellent tour, Roger had scheduled everything I wished to see and because we had time, he included a number of other sites of interest, such as the memorial to John Macrae and Polygon Wood. Lunch was at a delightful cafe / restaurant with garden setting. The stop off for a Trappist beer also enjoyable. All topped off with attending Last Post at the Menin Gate at 8pm and locating the name of another Great Uncle, the third of the 3 Great Uncles who never returned home to New Zealand from WW1.

Denise B. of Chicago, USA, after tours in Bruges, Ghent and Flanders Fields in July 2018:

Roger provided great background and insight to our tour of Gent and Bruges. He was punctual, courteous and knowledgeable.

Our second day with Roger was equally enjoyable. Our tour of Flanders Field and surrounding areas was perfect.

Thomas H. of Minesota, USA, after a tour in Antwerp in June 2018:

Wow Roger is an amazing guide! We wanted to learn about the culture and history of Belgium and boy is Roger the perfect person. He is just such an amazing fountain of information. We really got an amazing picture of what life was like in the 15th century. We especially loved his historic picture of Ghent, what a great way to appreciate the past. We spent 9 hours in Roger's hand and what a wonderful treat he was. We could tell he takes pride in his work and we truly appreciated his energy & knowledge. 

Susan M. of IQ Business Events Inc to Peter VA of EventMasters after my tour with Labatt executives in Flanders Fields in June 2018:

Hi Peter.

Cathy reports that her colleagues are back and had nothing but great things to say about the guide and the transfers.

Thanks so much for your assistance. Now we need to bring you a bigger group!

Susan M

Ruth, Tim, Phoebe and Eleanor S. after a private tour in Bruges in June 2018:

Thank you to Roger for considering all our family's needs. We enjoyed sampling the Belgium beer and waffles. It was such a shame that Phoebe's wheelchair chassis cracked and we weren't all able to access all the tour, but Eleanor and Tim did get to shop for Belgium chocolates, learn more about the historical sites of Bruges and Roger ensured that we safely returned to the cruise terminal in time.

We hope our unfortunate experience won't deter you from offering accessible tours for other disabled visitors.

Johanna and Marshall M. from Florida, after their private tour in Brussels and Antwerp in May 2018: 

Hi Roger,

Marshall and I enjoyed our time with you very much. You are a fount of information, so we learned quite a bit. It was a very pleasant and relaxed experience. Just sorry that you were so rushed to meet your next group. Hope it all worked out.

Again, thank you for the wonderful tour.

All the best,


Andrea S. de Itinéraires après 2 jours à Anvers et Bruges avec des clients d'un congrès à Gand en Mai 2018:

Bonjour Roger,

Nous avons bien reçu ta facture;
Merci beaucoup pour ta prestation ces deux jours et ton feedback; et encore merci pour ton efficacité à gérer la situation sur le terrain, c'est très apprécié.



Devin & Bruce C-L from California after a private tour in Bruges in May 2018:

Roger is a very professional, thoughtful, and well prepared guide. We would definitely recommend him. He was attentive to our desires and was very flexible and did not hesitate to change the itinerary when more time was requested at certain sites. He shared with us facts that are not readily apparent which enhanced our time with him. We also appreciated his notebook filled with photos of the works of art the we would be seeing so that he could give us a mini lesson before our viewing.

Thanks Roger!

Devin and Bruce

With my guests, translators and interpreters from the European Committee of the Regions, in the House of European History

Lisa H. from USA after a private tour in Brussels in April 2018:

On our shore excursion we wanted to go further afield to Brussels and what a great day Roger planned for us. We were interested in seeing tulips and saw what we considered to be better than Kuekenhof at the much smaller, less crowed Floralia at the Chateau de grand-Bigard. We were thrilled to be able to go to Royal Greenhouses at Laeken open to the public for only 3 weeks during the year. Old town Brussels was quite the finale to wonderful day. Roger was efficient, knowledgeable and a pleasure to meet!

Thanks so much for a great day. We appreciate you going above and beyond for us - appreciating our desire to get back well before the cruise ship was due to depart and then going on the hunt for some Belgium beers! We had a wonderful time and can't thank you enough. Best wishes!


Sophie F. van EventMasters na een rondleiding in Brussel in mei 2018:

Hey Roger,

We willen jou bedanken voor de gidsing van Zaterdag. We hebben enkel super positieve reacties gekregen van de klant! Een dikke Merci!

Van het hele team!
Sophie, Jan, Julie

Met vriendelijke groet,

Adelin V. van Neos na een rondleiding in het Atomium en een rondrit in Brussel in april 2018:

Sarah K. of TMB Events after a factory tour at Volvo Car Gent in January 2018

The feedback from Jules was that lunch was amazing and the tour was great, so thank you very much for your help with organising this.

Many Thanks

Margaret C. from Michagan, USA after a private tour in Ghent and Bruges in January 2018

We had an excellent tour with Roger. He is very knowledgeable and was well prepared, including a folder with pictures that greatly added to the experience. We thoroughly enjoyed his company as well as the historical and current information he shared about Gent and Brugge. Roger very graciously accommodated our extra needs for my mom who has limited mobility. If we are ever able to return to the area we will definitely request Roger for another tour. Thank you!

Joann S. from USA after a day in Bruges and Flanders Fields in November 2017

We spent a memorable day with Roger in Bruges. He is witty, well-informed, considerate and he gave us an absorbable level of information. We went at a relaxed pace that allowed for shopping and an excellent lunch. I am a lawyer, so Roger took us to law-related sites. Although we booked a walking tour, Roger drove us to Flanders fields and other WWI memorials, which were moving and important. Roger's fluent English---including nuances---made the experience enjoyable and lasting. Highly recommended.


Heinz Horst Z. nach einer Führung in Brüssel im November 2017

Mein lieber Roger, es war ein toller Vormittag mit Ihnen. Herzlichen Dank!
Das Essen im Commes Chez Soiree war hervorragend!
Die Rückfahrt war ebenfalls ohne Komplikationen. Wir können alles so am 8. Dezember 2017 machen.
Herzlichen Dank für ihre freundliche und kompetente Art!
Ich melde mich wieder, ein schönes Wochenende ihr Henri!

Nina C. van de Zilveren Passer Antwerpen na een rondleiding in het Atomium in oktober 2017

Beste,graag wil ik U nog eens bedanken voor de uitstekende gidsen bij de rondleiding in het atomium.Voor enkelen onder ons waren er te veel trappen en ook de benauwende warmte speelde ons parten. Het was zeker niet uit gebrek aan interesse dat sommigen moesten buiten gaan...

Vele groeten,


Christina R. von Audi Brussels, nach einer Stadtführung in Brüssel im Oktober 2017

Guten Morgen Roger,

die Stadtführung war wirklich Klasse! Nochmal Dankeschön dafür.

Guten Abend,

vielen Dank nochmals für die schöne Führung. In Gent haben wir uns mithilfe unserer B&B-Gastgeber alleine zurecht gefunden.

Herzliche Grüße

Sonja H. und Bernhard D. aus Innsbruck, Österreich nach einer Führung in Brüssel im Oktober 2017

Sehr geehrter Herr Roger Van Buynder,

Ich möchte mich im Namen der gesamten Gruppe bei Ihnen für die tolle und lehrreiche Führung bedanken. Meine Kollegin hat mir berichtet, dass alle, sowohl die Jugendlichen als auch die Begleitpersonen, sehr begeistert waren und sich sehr gefreut haben, mit Ihnen den Vormittag zu verbringen. Sie haben bei den Teilnehmern jedenfalls die Begeisterung für den historischen Kern Brüssels geweckt.

Leider mussten Sie sehr lange auf die Gruppe warten, wofür ich mich im Namen des ganzen Teams entschuldigen möchte. Unglücklicherweise kann man solche Vorfälle, wie eben einen Streik, nicht vorhersehen. Vielen Dank für Ihre Flexibilität und, dass Sie die Wartezeit auf sich genommen haben.

Ich wünsche Ihnen alles Gute und würde mich freuen, auch in Zukunft wieder mit Ihnen zusammenzuarbeiten.

Beste Grüße aus Innsbruck

Sonja H.


Sehr geehrter Herr Van Buynder!

Wieder zurück aus Brüssel, danke ich Ihnen für die Übermittlung Ihrer Rechnung. Der Betrag wird im Laufe der kommenden Woche an Sie überwiesen werden.

Ich danke Ihnen auch sehr herzlich für die Stadtführung, von der ich wirklich begeistert war.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Bernhard D.

Thank you so much for a wonderful tour – we really enjoyed it! Thank you also for these recommendations. We enjoyed a fantastic lunch at Aux Armes de Bruzelles. We will definitely check out the other restaurants over the coming days.

Hope the beer tour goes well tonight and safe travels to France tomorrow!

Best wishes,
Jenny and Jose


Maxwell & Sandra E. from Australia, after a private tour in Antwerp on 7 September 2017:

Roger is from the Antwerp area & came down to our hotel in Brussels 'on time' and picked us up for our Antwerp tour. As a local his knowledge was par excellence and he took us to some strategic places & gave us detailed explanations. The tour was very relaxed & easy paced which was superb. The tour was conducted in a very professional manner. At the end of the tour Roger took us to the train station and even came to the platform to ensure we got back to Brussels safely. A superb guide to anyone.


Bryan P. from Auckland, New Zealand after a private tour in Flanders Fields on  September 2017:

Angela F.T. of Bowling Green, Ohio, USA after a private tour in Ghent and Brussels on July 7, 2017

Roger far exceeded my expectations! Initially I was hesitant to get off of a cruise ship, alone - without my husband I always travel with, and go on a private tour, but I am soooooo glad I did. Roger was fantastic and could not have taken better care of me! As soon as I stepped off the shuttle bus transporting me from the ship to the port / Zeebrugge cruise terminal, there was Roger with a smile on his face and a sign with my name on it in his hands. (Previously, he had emailed me to confirm and he also left me a voice mail the morning my ship arrived, but I was still uneasy without my husband/constant travel companion.) Roger politely took my luggage and pulled it to his very nice and clean vehicle, made sure I was comfortable and gave me a bottle of water. He then drove me to police/immigration to get my passport stamped taking care of all of the oral communications for me. Then we were off on a most wonderful day exploring Ghent and Brussels. Roger was so polite, professional, kind and informative. He took me to all of the places I wanted to see - and so much more than I knew even existed! He kindly answered all of my questions and shared so much valuable knowledge, wisdom and insight. The experience lasted longer than I thought and I got to see much, much more than I ever expected. His tour was the perfect mix of driving, walking and viewing. What I possibly liked most, next to his manners, was that he had a special binder with him that showed me how things "used to be" so that when we stood in front of places/items, I could compare and contrast. That was also wonderful. I appreciate his thoughtfulness, gentleness, kindness, and professionalism more than he will ever know. I don't know how you could find a better guide than Roger! I am filled with gratitude and appreciation. 

Ann B. uit Brussel na een rondleiding in Brussel op 22 juni 2017:

Ik wil u bedanken voor de uitstekende samenwerking voor onze sport- en cultuurdag van donderdag ll.

Gelieve ook onze waardering over te maken aan de verschillende gidsen. Ik heb enkel positieve reacties mogen ontvangen over de verschillende rondleidingen.

Gillian O'C after a private tour in Flanders Fields on 19 June 2017:

Excellent informative tour. Exceeded our expectations. It was an exceptionally hot day and Roger ensured we kept hydrated with supplies of water.

Stefan K. aus Flerzheim nach Führungen in Brügge und Gent am 15. und 16. Juni 2017:

Eine sehr schöne Tour mit einem sehr netten und kompetenten Tourführer, Herrn Buynder. Gerne jederzeit wieder !!!

Thomas P. aus Wien, Österreich nach einem Stadtrundgang in Antwerpen am 15. Juni 2017:

Roger ging bestens auf unsere Vorstellungen und Wünsche ein. Es war ein sehr schöner und interessanter 3 stündiger Stadtspaziergang. Vielen Dank, gerne wieder.

Amalia B. de Bruxelles après une visite de Bruxelles avec un groupe allemand.

La visite guidée avec Roger c'est très bien passée!
Nos invités ont appréciés la foule de détails sur la ville et son fonctionnement qu'il a évoqué.

Nous n'avons pas été vers les institutions européennes car il faisait trop chaud et il a donc privilégié la cathédrale, le centre culturel hongrois, le hall du Palais des Beaux-arts.

Susanne S. aus Deutschland nach einer Führung in Brüssel am 12. Juni 2017:

Brüssel individuell mit Großfamilie

Wir haben am 12.06.2017 als 7-köpfige Großfamilie (im Alter von 3-75 Jahren) eine tolle Führung mit unserem Guide Roger van Buynder durch Brüssel gemacht. Die Zeit verging wie im Flug und wir waren voll auf begeistert von seiner Art, seinem Wissen, seiner Flexibilität und seinem Einfühlungsvermögen.

Wir waren größtenteils mit dem Privat-PKW in und durch Brüssel unterwegs, durch dass Herr van Buynder uns besser navigierte als jedes Navi. :-)

Er hat die Tour sogar spontan um fast eine Stunde erweitert.
Außerdem erhielten wir ganz kurzfristig sehr genaue Informationen für einen kurzen Abstecher nach Antwerpen, die uns am folgenden Tag einen schnellen, unkomplizierten und schönen Einblick über die Stadt und ihren Hafen gaben.

Für alles nochmals herzlichen Dank!

Wir empfehlen sie sehr gerne weiter!



Stefan K. aus Flerzheim, Deutschland nach Führungen in Brügge und Gent am 15 & 16.  Juni 2017:

 Hallo herr buynder. Nochmals ganz ganz herzlichen dank für die beiden tage führung. Es war echt super. Ihnen alles gute. Gruss stefan



Bernhard B aus Gladbeck, Deutschland nach einer Führung in Antwerpen am 6. Juni 2017:

Hallo Roger,

die Gruppe hat sich sehr positiv zur Stadtführung geäußert, Sie haben das sehr kurzweilig gestaltet, mit Humor und viel Sachverstand.

Das ist gut angekommen.

Weiter so!

Vielen Dank noch einmal dafür.



Timothy P. from Grembergen, Belgium after a guided tour in Antwerp on 17 May 2017

Very Good guide, very fluent in English and very well prepared. Haven't heard a single negative sound about the tour.


Johan D. uit Schoten, België na een rondleiding in de Europese Wijk te Brussel op donderdag 11 mei 2017

Goedemiddag Roger en A.,

Wegens de talrijke opkomst van onze leden in Brussel, was het afscheid een beetje in tweeën gesplitst. In de groep van A. was er ook wat vermoeidheid op het einde, waarvoor een welgekomen drankje…

Iedereen was zeer tevreden over de wandeling in de Europese wijk onder jullie begeleiding, na de bevlogen uiteenzetting in het Europees Parlement, en de kennismaking met het Huis van de Europese Geschiedenis.

Ik dank u, in naam van het bestuur, voor de goede voorbereiding en de aangename samenwerking.

Tot een volgende keer, in een andere wijk…

met vriendelijke groeten, en een fijn weekend!



Helena und Winfried F. aus Dielheim, Deutschland nach einer Rundfahrt in Brüssel am 7. Mai 2017

Roger hat sich unseren Wünschen angepasst. Er war sehr kompetent. Die Besichtigung war ein voller Erfolg. Können wir absolut weiterempfehlen.


Jim and Martha C., from Las Vegas, USA after our private guided tour along the World War I cimeteries and monuments on 6 May 2017

Jiska T. aus Kleefeld, Deutschland nach einer Führung mit ihrem Chor in Brügge am 1. Mai 2017

Hallo lieber Roger,

Vielen Dank nochmal für die informative und unterhaltsame Stadt-/Busfahrtführung!

Mir sind viele Dinge im Gedächtnis geblieben von heute, zuletzt der Antwerpener Parkplatz "Belgien", dass die Uni hier so ein modernes Gebäude bekommen hat, und unsere erstaunliche Kenntniss über die vielen Fakten Antwerpens, bloß nicht was an Stelle des Stadtparks in das Dreieck gebaut werden sollte.. 
Es hat viel Spaß gemacht =)
Schick mir gerne noch das Grachtenfahrt-Foto, dann hören meine lieben Chor-Kolleg*innen bald mit dem nachfragen auf ;-)
Ganz liebe Grüße,
Jiska, auch im Auftrag der Meute

Therese C. from Florida, USA after a private guided tour in Bruges on 29 April 2017

Just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful experience with Roger as our guide today in Brugge. He was on time, personable, knowledgeable and went out of his way to accommodate us. A wonderful experience and we would highly recommend him as a guide. We want to thank him for a wonderful day. Thank you.

Sarah K. aus Höxter, Deutschland nach einer privaten Führung zu Fuß und per Bus in Brüssel am 21. März 2017

wir hatten eine tolle Zeit mit Roger und Paul in Brüssel! Die Führungen waren sehr informativ und gut auf unsere Schüler abgestimmt. Wir würden jeder Zeit wieder nach Brüssel kommen :-)

Persönliche Nachricht vom Kunden: Lieber Roger, lieber Paul,
herzlichen Dank noch einmal für Ihre Führungen. Sie haben sich sehr gut auf unsere "Bedürfnisse" eingestellt, so dass der Spaziergang durch Brüssel allen sehr gut gefallen hat - den Schülern wie auch den Lehrkräften. Viele Grüße aus Deutschland.

Cornelia K. aus Bergen / Rügen (Deutschland) nach einer Führung in Brügge, April 2017

wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt ; Roger hat die Führung sehr erlebnisreich und mit viel Wissen gestaltet. Wir sind Wege gegangen, die man allein nicht findet und es war sehr abwechslungsreich.
Unbedingt weiterzuempfehlen!

Hallo Roger, mijn vrienden en ik waren zeer tevreden over de gidsbeurt in Brussel. Indien nog ergens anders gidst weet het mij te zeggen, wij hebben altijd interesse. Groetjes Wim.

Sehr geehrter Herr van Buynder,

vielen Dank für die wunderbare Führung durch die Innenstadt Brüssels!

Die Gruppe war von Ihrer Führung sehr angetan und schätzte insbesondere Ihre fachlichen und fundierten Hintergrund-Informationen zu den einzelnen Sehenswürdigkeiten sowie historischen Epochen. Ihr Wissensschatz war beeindruckend.

Besten Dank!

Lieber Roger, im Januar und Februar habe ich häufig deine Touren mitgemacht- auch die SchülerInnen geben immer super Feedback und lernen viel Neues über Brüssel und Belgien! Danke und bis bald wieder!

Hallo Roger,
Er hat passioniert und lebensnah durch Brüssel geführt.
Es war ein wunderbar angenehmer Vormittag in Brüssel mit umfassenden lebensnahen Informationen, die Roger passioniert erzählte. So wünscht man sich einen Reiseführer.

Bonjour Madame,

Juste un petit mot pour vous informer que la visite guidée s’est très bien passée.

Le guide, Roger, était très sympathique et captivant sur une matière qu’il maitrisait à la perfection.

Nog eens bedankt voor je tour met de Clinical group; ze hebben er echt van genoten.

Armin S., Bonn Germany, October 2016 after guided tour in Brussels European District

Vielen Dank auch für die hervorragende Betreuung am vergangenen Freitag. Den Teilnehmerinnen und Teilnehmern hat es sehr gut gefallen. Auch ich fand die neue Route der Führung sehr gut. Das Viertel in dem wir zuerst waren kannte ich noch gar nicht.

Dries J., Bruges Belgium, October 2016 after guided tour with Swedish group  in Brussels

Bedankt Roger! Blij dat het goed is verlopen. Ik was ook heel tevreden met je uitleg. Heel correct en een fijne rustige stijl.

Sonja V., Merksem Belgium, October 2016 after visit to the Atomium 

Hartelijke dank voor de goede ontvangst en proffessionele uitleg door jullie gids.Het heeft onze dames hun herinneringen aan 1958 terug opgefrist en dat was zeer aangenaam.

Walter DS, Merksem Belgium, September 2016 after visit to Audi Brussels

Ik heb gisteren de tevredenheidsenquete ingevuld en een score "het was uitstekend" gegeven. Tijdens het intypen van de bijkomende commentaar heeft mijn smartphone echter onverwacht de verbinding verbroken.Daarom wil ik u hierbij in de eerste plaats nogmaals extra bedanken voor de goede communicatie, tevens ook de gidsen die ons zeer goed rondgeleid hebben in het bedrijf en de dame die ons begeleid heeft naar de bedrijfskantine.  

Larry K., New York USA, August 2016 after guided tour in Bruges

Roger was a great guide in Bruges. So knowledgeable in all of the historic details of the city, and gave us such a complete tour -- especially since our time there was so limited. He was really helpful with pre-tour arrangements. Everything was timed perfectly. He had a great sense of humor and we really enjoyed getting to know him during our trip. I would highly recommend him to anyone visiting Bruges or other parts of Belgium . His tour was one of the highlights of our trip!

Mrs Karin Z from Germany, August 2016 after guided tour in Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent and Brussels

Guten Morgen, mein lb. Roger, 

bin ganz überrascht über Ihre schnelle Übersendung des Gruppenbildes. Sie sind wirklich ein einmalig freundlich und hilfsbereiter Reiseleiter. Vielen, vielen Dank dafür.

Diese kurze Reise werde ich in guter Erinnerung mit Ihnen behalten. Nun, vielleicht läßt es meine Gesundheit  zu, später nochmal nach Flandern zu kommen. Alles Liebe und Gute verbunden mit den herzlichsten Grüßen

Nick B from Australia, July 2016 after a chocolate and beer tasting tour in Brussels

Thank you very much for the tour and for the flexibility on the day. It was great to see you and the team really enjoyed getting out of the office and having a good walk. The beer went down very well too!

The restaurant was good also, the food portions were generous and again everyone was positive about the quality. We enjoyed it!

Jannie A., Meise Belgique, janvier 2016 après une visite à l'Atomium

Tout le monde a été très content de la visite et le guide, la réception dans la salle Panorama et le délicieux repas.

Nous avons passé grâce à vous un moment mémorable. Bonne continuation,
