Prices and Conditions

All My Guide Services are Private, and out of Dinant

All my Guide services are private. That means that you/your party will be the only ones on the tour.
Prices are therefore for the tour. Not per person.

All my Guide services are out of Dinant (train station, your hotel, ...).
Exceptions: Verdun Battlefield day tours are out of Verdun, Bastogne Battlefield day tours can start out of Bastogne (if you prefer so), and Bastogne Battlefield half day tours are out of Bastogne.

Meeting you elsewhere (another city, for example) is subject prior agreement.

For info, you can easily travel to Dinant by (direct) train from Brussels, incl. Brussels Airport-Zaventem, and many other belgian trains stations. A standard ticket from Brussels to Dinant costs around 27,00 EUR per person, one way.

You could also consider renting a car that you would drive from Brussels (for example) to Dinant. You can already find a car for 4-5 people for around 70,00 EUR per 24 hours, or even a minibus for 8-9 people for around 120,00-140,00 EUR per 24 hours.

Normal tour schedules are
- from 09:00 to 17:00  (19:00 for tours to Bruges or Ypres) for day tours, with a short break (quick lunch) around noon.
(exception: Bastogne Battlefield day tours out of Bastogne start at 10:00)

- from 09:00 to 13:00, or from 13:00 to  17:00, for half day tours.

Other departure times subject prior agreement.

Tours available throughout the year.

I recommend that you wear good (closed) walking shoes where walking is involved.
I also recommend that you wear long trousers and long sleeve shirts when walking in high grass and/or woods are involved (in order to protect yourself from possible tick bites) . Especially on my Battlefield tours.
