Day trip to castles ?

Is there any day trip to 5 (Modave, de Veves, Lavaux-Sainte-Anne, Freyer and d' Annevoie) castles ? We have browsed through the web but seems that there are only private tours, which is very expensive to us (we are looking for big group coach tours). Though by the map, the 5 seems close to one another, but is it too ambitious/rather impossible to do all 5 in a day ? A million thanks to anyone who helps !!

There are no organised coach tours whatsoever to Belgian castles, at least from Brussels, and if not from here then I doubt that they would be offered from anywhere else. Even by private car (or hire-car) or private tour I think it is rather ambitious to "do" all 5 in one day, unless perhaps you only want to glimpse them from the outside. Distance "as the crow flies" is only part of the story, when travelling on small country roads that wind around the place.

If you like castles, the Castle of the Counts (Gravensteen) in Ghent is easy to get to, and Beersel and Gaasbeek are not far outside Brussels.
