Guided tours through Luxembourg – the small country with the big heart
Luxembourg tourism is alive and kicking, and with good reason – this compact European marvel offers incredibly diverse natural beauty and scenery, all in the space of approximately 2600 km2 (an area slightly smaller than the American state of Rhode Island). Bordered by Germany, France and Belgium, Luxembourg is affectionately known as 'Little Switzerland' and home to only half a million inhabitants, who speak either French, German or the native tongue of Luxembourgish.
Discover Luxembourg on an Expat Explore coach tour
As fascinating as it is enchanting, Luxembourg's scenic landscapes boast an array of plains and woods dotted with breath-taking lakes and rivers. Driving along its roads you can expect to encounter enchanting villages, enigmatic ruins and vivid flora around every bend. The scenery changes with the seasons and, depending on when a tour passes through, travellers can look forward to delicately snowy vistas; clear blue skies and verdant forests, or a delightful tapestry of autumnal hues.
