Full description

Embark on a hop-on-hop-off day tour and discover the history of Luxembourg, from the Middle Ages to the modern age, aboard a modern convertible bus. See the "Mullerthal" region with its breathtaking waterfall and walking trail, admire the Vianden Castle, and visit Echternach, the country's oldest city. Program of the day:

1. Mullerthal trail - Schiessentümpel: 

View the "Schiessentümpel" waterfall with its three water jets on the Black Ernz. Snap pictures at the most photographed site in the Mullerthal Region, Luxembourg's Little Switzerland. Begin a 45-minute walking tour.

2. One stop at Beaufort for 10 minutes to take some photos and admire the view.

3. Castle of Vianden

Explore the small medieval town of Vianden and its imposing castle, which attracts thousands of visitors annually. Admire the imposing castle that overlooks the town, the town wall with its fortified towers, and the town's chairlift.

During the stop, you have 2.5 hours of leisure time that you can plan for yourself. We recommend that you bring a snack if you don't want to waste time in a restaurant. Otherwise, the time might be too short.

4. The old town of Echternach: 

Continue to the city of Echternach, founded in 698 by the Benedictine monk Willibrord and the oldest town in Luxembourg. Visit the most beautiful places and buildings of Echternach, like the Basilica, the abbey, and the market square, during a 45-minute city tour. After the visit to Echternach, return to your original departure point at Boulevard de la Pétrusse in Luxembourg.

Overall, this was a very good tour and a great way to see several beautiful sights while staying in Luxembourg. The vehicle was very comfortable, and I loved the huge windows. My biggest disappointment was the audio guide. While between stops, we were given earbuds to listen to an audio guide. The guide only played information about 5-10% of the time, and there was no way to know when the information was coming up, so you had to keep earbuds in waiting for those little morsels of information, or just give up on the audio guide. Once at the destinations, we were met by guides who were wonderful. There was a bit of confusion about the pick-up location at the Vianden stop which could have been planned better, and it would have been nice to receive restaurant recommendations for lunch. However, my overall experience was excellent, and I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to spend a day seeing beautiful sites outside of Luxembourg City.

Great itinerary, however would have been good to start at 8am/8.30am as there are a lot of activities back-to-back and that left no time for a lunch break at an appropriate time. As a result of the tight activites, we ended up having to cut a guided tour short at Echternacht (which we felt bad) as we were all starving and chose to get lunch (3.30-4pm). It would also help if the tour guide / driver could speak more fluent English as at times it was difficult to communicate and understand key points.

We enjoyed visiting the two castles and seeing the countryside. The tour guide was great! I only wish we had more time to walk around Vianden. They said we had two hours to walk around Vianden, visit the castle, etc. We only had time to visit the castle and when we left after 90 minutes, the bus was right at the entrance of the castle vs at the original drop off location. I had hoped to walk around the city and maybe grab a snack before leaving.
