Voice of Travelers to Luxembourg
My 4-day tour of Luxembourg City in Luxembourg was full of fun
My tour of Luxembourg was more than I expected. I used the Turkish Airlines from JFK Airport (New York) on a business class ticket. The crew was helpful, although I didn’t get my preferred seat because I used a code-share ticket flight (minor flaw though). We reached Fidel Airport, Luxembourg at around 4 pm. Moving around the city was easy. I bought 1 public transport ticket each day. I was able to cover most of Luxembourg City with a single ticket. Amazingly, the ticket was valid for use as a train ticket or a bus ticket.
The tour of Luxembourg couldn’t be any better!
It was a great trip to see all the castles in Luxembourg. I flew on a promotional ticket with Luxair from Nice to Luxembourg. Moving from one district to the other was possible using one ticket. The bus ticket/ train ticket was also quite affordable.
Excellent experience in Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
My wife and I had a terrific experience in Luxembourg. We traveled as a group from Melbourne via Swiss and Singapore Airlines. Ticket inspection took some time due to the high number of travelers. The crew in both airlines made our flights easy and enjoyable. Among other places, we visited the Cathedral Notre Dame, Barrio Grund, and Larochette Castle.
