Sun 17th - Thu 21st MAY 2020

This month marks the 80th anniversary of the beginning of Operation Dynamo - the evacuation of British and allied soldiers from Dunkirk. Ostend, our base for the 5 days has a mixture of traditional Belgian and modern architecture. Its focal point is its marina which attracts luxurious yachts of all sizes. Bruges and Ghent are only a short train ride away. We stay at the Glenmore Hotel for four nights bed and breakfast. All rooms are en-suite with TV, mini-bar and telephone.

Please note that Brexit will not affect this tour running. We hold an International Operating Licence which entitles our coach to be driven in all European countries. This licence is bilaterally agreed between participating countries and is not issued by the European Union.
