This tour was fantastic. Our guide Avo was knowledgable and very personable. He spent time with each group of people on the tour... and we felt that we got to know him (and he also got to know us). The food was excellent and we found some wonderful out of the way places to visit later in our stay. A must do - but make sure you book for earlier in your visit so you have a chance to visit some of the places you find out about on this tour!! more

Gregoria

Brussels half day sightseeing tour with hotel pick up. We started with Grand Place and drove around the city, while the guide expl...ained us a lot about history, culture and Belgium in general, which was very informative and interesting. We stopped at each place for a short while, but I came back again to the places that interested me the most to spend there more time.
The price is considerably cheap.

We went on this tour on the day we arrived in Brussels.
The guide spoke in English, French and Spanish, she was very easy ...
to understand.
The bus was also equipped in earphones, so we could listen to the audio guide in our own language.
The tour ended at St. Michaels Catherdal, which we wanted to visit, so it was very convenient.
It was a very good tour because it helps you get an idea about the whole city.

I recommend this tour at the beginning of your stay in Brussels.
It's a good tour to bet a general grasp of the city....

The tour itself was mostly a panoramic bus drive. We got off the bus only at the Atomium.
Earphone guide was good.
It was quite foggy, so the pictures don't look so great... All pictures except the Atomium were taken from the bus.

It was frustrating not being able to book locally. No one that I called had ever been to Brussels. I was afraid to book before m...y arrival because of the cancelation policy. If I gotten snow out, then I would have lost money. But it was difficult to book last minute tours after I arrived. more
