Description

Drive through the Dutch countryside towards Antwerp, known as the Diamond Capital of the World. There, you will enjoy a short guided walking tour through the old City Centre, where you will see great historic building-fronts on narrow streets. You may also choose to visit Diamond Land, the largest diamond showroom of the city (optional).

Continue your journey to Brussels, the administrative capital of the European Union, and spend the rest of your day exploring this vibrant city. If the Netherlands and Belgium share a common history, we can also say that Belgium has its own unique personality.

Upon arrival, you will first stop at the Atomium, the largest iron atom in the world, and the symbol of the city. During your short bus tour, you will see the tomb of the unknown solder and the imposing Royal Palace of Brussels - the official residence of the King and Queen of the Belgians. Next, take part in a guided walking tour where you will be able to see the 16th century edifices at the Grand Place - the central square of Brussels listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Also do not miss the famous Manneken Pis - the small bronze sculpture of a naked little boy urinating into the fountain's basin.

    Drop-off

The group size was about 30 people. It was a duo-lingual tour in English and Spanish.
We left Amsterdam at 9:30 and arrived at Antwerp after 2 hour drive. We spent there about 1.5 h. There was a possibility to go on a tour with the guide to the diamond workshop, but we decided to break up from the group and to visit the Cathedral. It was about 20 min walk from the meeting point, which was at Rooseveltplaats tram station. The Cathedral is definitely worth a visit - it has a lot of wonderful Ruben's paintings. It's better to have google maps with you or a paper map, because the guide will only be able to point you the direction. In a big hurry we managed to see the main square and run back to the bus.
From Antwerp it was about 45 min drive to Brussels. First we stopped for 15 min break at the Atomium statue, built for Expo fair.
In Brussels we got off next to Cathedral of St. Michael. The group divided into English and Spanish speaking, and we visited the cathedral together. However we decided to separate from the group and continue on our own, as the Grand Place was just 500 metres away. We explored the square and saw the famous pissing boy statue. Then we had mules for lunch and even had some spare time for shopping.
In each city, if you decide to go with the guide, you won't have enough of free time. If there's something you want to see in particular, you better reconfirm meeting time and place, and go to explore on your own.
Overall we were very satisfied with the tour in terms of the time and money,

While visiting the Netherlands, we wanted to visit neighbouring Belgium, that's why we booked this tour. It's an efficie...nt bus tour, so we recommend it to those who don't have a lot of time. In both Brussels and Antwerp we had free time to explore on our own, and we didn't feel rushed at all.
In Antwerp. first we listened to the guide's explanation about the palace and other buildings on a short walking tour, and then we had free time for lunch.
Breakup and meeting point was on the main square full of restaurants and shops, and we managed to see quite a lot within 1 hour we had. Fir e.g. we saw Rubens painting shown in the film 'A Dog of Flanders'. We also visited Cathedral of Our Lady, with beautiful collection of paintings by Rubens - a must see when you are in Antwerp.
In Brussels, you can join a walking tour with the guide, but we decided to walk around by ourselves. From the place where the bus was parked, it was quite close to the Grand Place and other main sights of Brussels.
Travelling by bus from the Netherlands to Belgium takes time, but we had stops for toilet along the way and enjoyed the whole journey very much.
The timing was very punctual and we arrived back in Amsterdam on time.
The guide was very nice and we spent a very good time with her.
If you are in Amsterdam, we would definitely recommend this tour.
