Hi Philip,

We want to thank you and your team for providing a perfect evening for our client event.
The organization and timing was complete as agreed and the trip is conducted smoothly.
We had to deal only with customers, and this was no problem in a cozy environment with the necessary privacy.
Salons Schoeters also compliment the delicious catering and professional service.
Our international clients have enjoyed the Belgian gastronomy and were amazed at the vastness and diversity of the port.

Everyone is happy, which again many thanks.

Dear Philip,

Thank you so much for the guide and steps.
It was a very cosy and interesting afternoon thanks to the excellent guide Annik, who'se tellings about Mechlin came from her hart. 
The boattrip was fun and staying at "Martin's Patershof" was unique.
We got to know Mechlin as a beautiful and well kept City.
Definately to be repeated!

Kind regards,
