99% of travelers rated their experience with Katy excellent
"Katy made tour both wonderful and exciting both on and off our river boat. Her personality and enthusiasm spread throughout our group. Her sense of humor and quick wit were very special and she used them well. We've been on other trips with super Program Directors, but nothing that matched her special qualities."

Get to know Katy:
Travel has always been part of my life. Growing up, I attended many different schools as my family moved from place to place in Belgium. Then after graduating from university in Brussels, I began working abroad in the travel industry. I lived in Spain, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Greece and also traveled on my own to North and South America, Asia, and most of Europe. But eventually I decided I wanted to return home, and that’s when I started working for Grand Circle and living in Belgium again.
Belgium is a great place to live: I like its diversity, how close it is to the rest of Europe, and that it’s a paradise for chocolate and beer! And I enjoy sharing my country with Grand Circle travelers, especially since I get to stay with them for two weeks, which gives us a chance to really get to know each other. In between trips, I love to work at the bed and breakfast I own with my husband Matthias, gardening, taking care of our many animals, and of course spending time with our guests. Every day brings new experiences, new people, and new stories, and that’s what travel is about to me.
