Ghent

Ghent is a very popular base for our groups; every bit as beautiful as Bruges yet a much more compact and a quieter alternative. Ghent is dominated by the imposing 12th century Castle of the Counts, while canals weave their way through the town. On the banks are countless churches, museums and glorious medieval buildings, including the magnificent town hall and belfry. St Bavo’s cathedral not only boasts wonderful works of art by Van Eyck and Rubens but also the largest organ in the Benelux countries.

Leuven

Situated less than half an hour’s drive to the east of Brussels, Leuven is a glorious town of stunning medieval architecture and home to one of the world’s oldest catholic universities. Hence the city has a fantastic mix of old and new, with plenty of lively bars and cafes set amidst some of the most beautiful architecture you can find. Leuven’s richest monument is the ornately decorated town hall, which stands in the pedestrianised main square, while just outside the city you will find the Interbrew company, which brews the world famous Stella Artois lager.

"Lovely venues, lovely audiences, comfortable accommodation. Alahree was very prompt and efficient with her responses and understood our needs well."

Gill Chapman, Cecilia Singers, Berkshire.

"It was brilliant and everything I expected from a tour and more. Jonathan was brilliant. He was always patient with me and nothing seemed to phase him. Sabine was just wonderful, always willing to listen to what I suggested we wanted from the tour. She has endless patience. Playing at the Last Post was so moving, we felt very privileged to be able to perform at such a moving ceremony."

Cath Danswan, Swindon Choral Society, Wiltshire.
