Lucky for me, my Dutch friend booked us on this trip today - otherwise I would never have gone.
We almost didn’t actually, as if it weren’t for the fact a horribly tacky carnival was parked in Maastricht’s main square, completely spoiling the ambience, we probably would have spent our time sitting with a beer, enjoying the atmosphere.
So down into the tunnels we went. And what a fantastic tour. Our guide was entertaining and informative and lucky for us, knew his way around the maze of tunnels like the back of his hand. At one point he switched the torches off - and it’s the first time in my life I’ve experienced complete and utter pitch darkness.
The tour was educational and very interesting - even if you’re not really into that kind of thing. A definite must do if you are visiting Maastricht. And very reasonably priced too.
Not to be missed!
