The Ardens always attracted me with its valleys and dense forests. For this reason I decided to use the services of guide - Joyce, when I was in Belgium. I liked it so much! Joyce organized everything perfectly - all was very interesting, entertaining. We were in the place of the famous Battle of the Bulge. Also we visited Bastogne Museum - very interesting collections. Excursion was very good one. Especially our guide - clever, intellectual.
