Following our visit here for a tour and tasting, we head back to the barge for our welcome aboard dinner.

Then this very special day continues with a visit to Palm Brewery, along with a visit to their stud farm where we will visit their magnificent draught horses, mascot of Brouwerij Palm, which have been saved from extinction. It’s no coincidence that Palm concentrates on breeding primarily chestnut Belgian draught horses.

I was blown away at Ruth and Mike’s gift for knowing their guests. Though there were others on the trip, I always felt special and important and that was a great feeling. They certainly know the best of the best (breweries, pubs, eateries, and key sights to see), and it was clear that they are well liked AND respected in the industry. At many breweries they were welcomed as longtime friends, and that was true for other establishments as well. I have no doubt that I would book another tour with Bon Beer Voyage if I have the opportunity again, I’m actually counting on it. . Thank you Ruth and Mike for such a wonderful time.

Everyone keeps asking me what my favorite part of the trip was and I can never give a straight answer because there were too many awesome things! It was amazing to see so many cool breweries I couldn’t do on my own. Food, transport and accommodations were great. Everything was taken care of! Can’t wait to go again!

– Elizabeth Smith, Brooklyn, NY

Great tour, great people, great beer!! Best vacation we’ve had in a long time. Great first time experience in Europe.. Both of you were very helpful and knowledgeable about all the places we went .Plan to go again in future.  Hats off to both of you for making it a memorable vacation.

– Tony P., Tustin, CA

Mike and Ruth go the extra mile to make this a fantastic vacation. Their knowledge and connections at each brewery and town visited can’t be found anywhere else. They arranged this trip with the perfect balance of touring, brewery visits, and free time to explore the cities we visited. We can’t wait to get a crew together for the next one.

Our beer tour itineraries are subject to change due to unforeseen circumstances such as inclement weather, transportation problems, or an unexpected business closure. We’re continually looking for ways to improve our tours and we sometimes come across a special new pub or brewery since the itinerary was published that we’d like to share with you. Since our beer tours are planned far in advance, we may occasionally adjust the itinerary as necessary to provide you with the best trip possible! Since a minimum number of passengers are required in order to run each trip, we suggest you refrain from non-refundable air purchases until 2 months prior to your departure date or confirmation of sailing.
