Belgium Special Interest Tours

Often overlooked, Belgium is a wonderful place to visit whilst in Europe. With easy connections from the UK, France and Germany and over 60 UNESCO world heritage sites the country offers much more than just its famous chocolate.

 

 

 

 

 

We  have offered many programmes to Belgium and are able to create itineraries that incorporate educational subjects and special interests along with everything else that Belgium and it’s neighbouring countries can offer.

Everything we do is tailor made and bespoke. Whatever the focus, subject or special interest we can create purposeful and meaningful itineraries that visitors will remember for years to come.
