A Great day out with Rent a Willys!

Just back in the UK after driving all the way to Mechelen in Belgium for a day driving a Willys Jeep around the local countryside on the Warbirds tour. I can’t recommend this experience enough ! Phillipe was an absolutely wonderful host with a great rapport and many interesting stories about the experiences and fortunes of war of the local population.
I was accompanied by two old friends and we all agreed this was one of the best weekends we have had for some time!
…many thanks Phillipe!

Very cool activity

Very cool activity better way to brush up on history than visiting a museum. Top organization and very nice people. Ideal for team building and great to finish with a BBQ. We had a great time and everyone was super happy afterwards. Also good for all ages.

Unforgettable bachelor party thanks to Rent-a-Willys

Looking for a fun activity for my brother's bachelorette party we ended up on Rent-a-Willys. Philippe (owner) was immediately very responsive and thought along with us to craft the perfect afternoon. The activities between rides were a welcome change and the Willy's Jeeps are in excellent condition. Everyone in our party has been given plenty of time to drive them and Philippe also knows the more challenging country roads in the area well so you can test the Willy's in the terrain where he is at home. The stories and the passion of Philippe and the victory beer afterwards complete the picture. Highly recommended!

gift for retirement Stefaan

We planned a tour with the jeeps for Stefaan as a gift for his retirement. It turned out to be a fun, adventurous and unforgettable experience. In any case, the gift was more than successful. We were well received in a dressed
frame. We received interesting explanations and could then start with the tour. It was an adventurous ride through the region. Every now and then a war story from the region was told. It was great!
We will definitely come back to do the Night Route.

A memorable day

My husband's great wish came true when we surprised him with the news that he would be going on a trip in the Willy's jeep he loved so much, which he would also be able to drive himself (for the first time in his life). . The so-called Warbird route and everything that Philippe told and showed us with such enthusiasm and knowledge, brought us back in time and made us experience the war stories a bit. Very instructive and very educational, even for our already grown children. The four of us seated in the Willy's jeep and driving through the fields and mud, we also felt a piece of the history of this special car. Philippe really took all the time for us and was able to tell and explain a lot about how everything happened at the time. What research he has done! As soon as you enter Philippe's gate, you feel warmly welcomed, you really go back in time and he takes you to a piece of history that should never be forgotten. His passion for history and the respect and knowledge of his jeeps make this formula a complete experience. We had a day we will never forget and my husband has already promised to come back, because this day definitely left us wanting more! Thank you Philippe for this nice memory.

Indian summer and riding with a willys jeep

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of going for a ride in a willys jeep at rent-a-willys. A gift voucher from my children that I could finally redeem during / after the corona. They know my interest in World War II. So I was already quite excited. The ride was scheduled from 10 a.m. to 12 noon in Leest. We got there right on time. At a quarter to ten. We are my wife and I. The reception was warm and soon our host started his explanation about the tour and the framing in time. Also a theoretical lesson and practical application with the willys. A little nervous we were ready to leave. This soon changed to just enjoying. We enjoyed driving on the country roads between the fields and nature. Four times we stopped at places where the war had struck and left its mark on the landscape or on people's lives. Each time our host told very enthusiastically what had happened here. We received an answer to every question or comment that showed his great knowledge. What struck me is that it is mainly the petition histories that left a great impression on everyone. A V1 impact that killed an entire family, but also the temporary lodging of a platoon of Wehrmacht soldiers on a farm after the crash of an English bomber. And that this had left a very big impression on a then 15-year-old girl. Of course we had the weather with us, dry and warm, but the guide made the difference. He passionately shared and told us the story of that macabre war period in an occupied country. It was impressive and very good. Let me conclude by saying that our ride lasted longer than two hours, ie well over three hours. And I would do them all over again. But bring a thermos and lunch. 😀

Great day with Rent-A-Willys

My husband has long wanted to drive a Willy. Rent-A-Willys made this dream come true and how! After a good explanation Phillipe entrusted the jeep to him and he took us (the rest of the family also in the Jeep) with him. Off the trail through the mud and potholes past historic sites. We received all information from Phillipe, supported by photos and archive material. He calls himself a storyteller, and he certainly is, with so much passion and pleasure he does this. And we enjoyed listening to him! Wonderful stories that will not be forgotten!
Highly recommended for people who love adventure, history, nature and of course the Willys!

surprise for dad

My father always wanted to get behind the wheel of a Willy's Jeep. Rent-a-Willy's made it happen. During the two-hour tour, Philippe explains at various locations in the area what happened during WWII. Beautiful stories of sometimes sad events. Philippe takes all the time to answer questions and show you the area. He knows a lot about it and talks about it with passion.

Mobile coffee bar in army style

Small is beautiful, so we aim for small events. Our mobile coffee bar brings you completely in the atmosphere of Band Of Brothers, but rest assured, you will not be served a war bite. Our Barista, David Deweerdt, uses the traditional Chemex method from 1941 to serve you a real coffee according to the rules of the art.
