Friday 26 August - Monday 29 August 2011
For the first time on Podge’s Belgian Beer Tours we have managed to book rooms at the very centrally based Hotel Novotel Gent Centrum. Also, for the fifth year running we have managed to secure the expert services of archaeologist and historian Dave Buckley to keep us well informed on this tour. Visits have already been planned to The Atlantic Wall Museum near Ostend, where a fortress was built during World War I and rebuilt as a part of German fortifications during World War II. We will visit the exhibitions housed in the bunkers and take a look at the huge guns still in position. We will pay a visit to the great Duvel Moortgat Brewery for a tour, a complimentary beery gift pack and tasting and we will embark on a special steam train journey on the De Stoomtrein Dendermonde-Puurs line on the Sunday.
The price of this four day tour is £380 per person based on sharing a twin or double room, with a single supplement of £94 if you want a room of your own. Details of visits on this tour are still being arranged, but will include the full cost of all entrance fees and guided tours around all museums and sites visited on the tour. Also included in the Tour price is coach travel from Colchester or Chelmsford, still and sparkling water available on the coach, hotel breakfasts on Tour and brewery visits and tastings. Arrangements can be made for different joining points on the way from Colchester to Dover/Folkestone or even on the other side of the channel. Personal insurance is not included but is strongly advised, as is carrying the European Health Insurance Card available online, by phone or via the Post Office. If you need more information on the tour or how to book and pay, please call Podge on +44(0)1245 354677, or send Podge an email. Places are limited to the number of rooms booked, so book early to avoid disappointment.
