I haven't been to Brussels in more than 30 years and had limited time to experience the city. This tour was perfect!
Belgium is an amazing country, you will have fun wherever you go! our guide Bruno was so much fun, we all loved him. the tour is really nice and we enjoyed every single minute of it.
Loved hearing and learning about the Brussels the guide was very informative. We did have a lot of time in Brussels so was great way to get to the major historical points to learn more.
Met my expectations.
Such a fun tour and tour guide! It was small enough that we were able to interactive with the tour guide and the locations as well as ask individual questions. Really enjoyed and would recommend!
Excellent trip, very well organised. The guide was extremely information and I learnt so much about Brussels and Belgium in general. The chocolate demonstration was good but I think we spent too long in the chocolate shop afterwards. I would recommend this trip
This tour was amazing!
This was one of the best. Lots to see and do. Very well explained by the tour guide.
This tour can be summed up in one word 'Jasmin'. Our tour guide Jasmin was a kind, caring lady with an amazing since of humor. The tour gives you a basic idea about Brussels, but Jasmin was always ready to answer our question, those related to the tours or those off topic. Ricardo, the d
A well organised and informative tour - Thank you
A must for those that only have a day or two to visit Brussels. Take advantage of the complimentary hotel pickup. Good overview of highlights on sights to see, plus have the option of returning to hotel or staying and exploring the Grand Place on your own. Choose the latter and you won't be disappointed.
This tour was superb. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. From the short walk at Grand Place to the chocolate factory, the tour was wonderful. Highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to discover Brussels within short timing. It was definitely worth it.!!
THE BEST City Tour I have ever been on, Stefan was an amazing host and knew everything possible down to the finest detail, the sites were all there and the tour was surprisingly long - we even got a few extras due to some latecomers and traffic! But, perfect host, great cost, lovely city. We had only just got off the plane and then with a delay had to go straight to the tour office I didnt even have time to get to a bank and with no euros I couldnt even leave a tip, felt awful it was so worth it. DEFINATELY BOOK THIS!!!!!!!!!
It was a great tour and a great way to see the city before I started exploring on my own.
One of the best. Good place . Organized people and very welcomed. The tour guy was perfect . I had flight at 3 and the tour ends 1 so i had not enough time to get to the airport by transportation . So the tour guy care so much

Very good, much longer than expected and took in all the history and sites, guide was very impressive and helpful.
This tour was amazing!
