Brussels City Sightseeing Tour

Tour the Capital Where it’s Easy to Waffle Around

From a 10th century fortress town, Brussels has grown into to a modern metropolis and a center for international politics. The city abounds in architectural monuments, from the Renaissance to modern times and the atomic structure the Atomium. This tour is a great overview of the city’s cultural gems before setting out to see them in detail. Or get off whenever something strikes your fancy.

Like the delicious Chocolate Museum, home to the history of Belgium’s famed sweets. Giggle at that naughty little Manneken Pis dressed in his fabulous finery. Stop at the Sablon, home to the Antiquest Marke. Enjoy luxe shopping on the Rue Neuve. And marvel at the magnificent Grand Place while enjoying a basket of mussels and fries.

Now capital of the European Union, Brussels is ready to flex its tourist muscles. The culture and beauty will knock you out.
