Too packed/badly planned

The tour starts with a ~45minutes stop at Luxembourg's most overrated tourist attraction, the Schiessentümpel waterfall. Normally, participants get to walk there along a probably scenic path above the street, and that may be worth it - in our case, the path was blocked by fallen trees, so we walked along the street to and from the waterfall, so: not great. The next stop, Beaufort, was very good, you get tickets to the castle and the time is sufficient to view it. Alas, in our case some people stayed 20min extra, so we only got 1.5h in Vianden instead of 2. Sounds long? Not if you let people off only on the other side of the town, meaning a 30 minutes walk up to the castle and same time back - you get tickets to the castle, but not anywhere enough time to actually use them (let alone grab something to eat). Even if we had had 2h, it wouldn't have been enough for the castle - extremely disappointing, as Vianden is the most beautiful attraction on the tour. Last stop Echternach, 1h guided tour which was nice, but again, no time to sit down anywhere to eat. If we had known in advance, we'd have brought generous lunch packs; as it was, I got afraid for my dad who's a diabetic. It would make much more sense to go from Beaufort to Echternach and end the tour in Vianden, giving people the chance to just stay longer and return to Lux city by public transport. Also, letting folks off the bus at the street leading up to the castle (which is on the path anyway) wouldn't be that difficult and would give them so much more time with the main attraction. Last, have your drivers announce the return time in multiple languages (not just French), with a sign, and drive off when people aren't back within 5 minutes of the departure time (or build in generous buffer time)! Spoiling the entire group's experience for some stragglers is not fair.

Ótimo passeio

O passeio foi muito bom. O motorista falava também português, o que nos auxiliou bastante, especialmente em Vianden. Em duas partes do passeio (Mullerthal e Echternach) haviam guias, que falavam em inglês. Em Vianden, o motorista nos levou diretamente até o teleférico (pago a parte) e até a entrada do castelo de Vianden. Em Echternach, a guia poderia ter dado um pouco mais de tempo para batermos as fotos.

Itinerary to the Beaufort and Vianden castles, Echtenach old town and Schiessentumpels waterfall is excellent! Bus transportation was also excellent and safe. Both local tour guides at Schiessentumpels and Echtenach were excellent, especially the woman at Echtenach. Pitfall is that driver did NOT speak English and therefore could not answer our questions. During the Vianden Castle 2 hr stop, we asked with no answer where the chairlift starts. Driver dropped us at the bus station with no explanation. We wasted ~20 mins trying to find the chairlift and walked an extra 1 km, losing valuable time exploring up at the castle and having lunch. Otherwise - a great tour!

Overall it is a really nice tour for those looking for a quick experience outside de city, enjoy the countryside, get amazed by the Müllerthal waterfalls and learn about luxembourg's history! However I would rather to have more free time to explore the Echternach village on my own. It is still a really nice tour with friendly and funny staff. I highly recommend it! It would be nice to have similar tours but with different routes.

We had a great time. It was a shame that some things were a little different due to the heavy rainfall during the last month. Even though we enjoyed it very much.

This tour was just great. Although I live in Luxembourg, I never took the time to visit the country and this nature and castle tour was just great. Everything was perfectly organised, we moved from one site to the other as scheduled and the various guides in the different sites were on time, always captivating and interesting. The weather was exceptionally good and I had the privilege to be in excellent company. I definitely recommend the tour

It’s difficult to have lunch in Vianden and visit the Chateau and the Castle and use the telechair. May be better have more time there or advice the customer to bring some sandwiches with you, but it’s a necessary trip if you are In Luxembourg. Unforgettable experience!!! I really recommend it!!!

A well-varied tour of the country and comfortable travel in an open-air minibus

Overall rating

Quality/price

I booked the tour online and it was an amazing one-click experience. I liked it a lot that they followed up with a phone call to make sure how many of us will be going, as I had booked a family tour. Then on the morning of the trip, the minibus was already waiting for us. The driver, Didier, was very welcoming and friendly, and the journey was extremely pleasant and smooth going. We enjoyed some time by ourselves and we also had guided tours for Mullerthal and Echtenach where we were able to learn a lot about the interesting history of the town and the life of St. Willibrord. The only drawback I could think of was that the time was really short. We so liked the journey that we would have spent even more time on this trip. All in all, I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone who has a day to spare and would like to spend it traveling in the country in a nice company and enjoying medieval castles and ancient towns.
