The information provided and the photo opportunities were just what we hoped for on our short stay in Brussels. The guides were amazing.

Wonderful tour I highly recommend it.

The tour I took filled the requirements that I wanted. I had only a short couple of days to see as much as I could of Brussels and Antwerp and I did just that. The bus was clean and comfortable and the driver was skilled. Even the hotel pickup and return at the end of the day was well executed. The guides were more than knowledgeable as they told us exactly what we needed to know at each stop and as we were in between. The tour definitely told me that I want to return with my wife and spend more time in Brussels and Antwerp.

Very good tour of 2 beautiful cities. Guides were very knowledgable and in Antwerp had plenty of free time to look around. Only disappointment in Brussels was not stopping at the overlook where a panoramic view of the city would have been amazing. When you go to the top of the museum the glass screen have a small circular cut out on each side. However this can be busy so as the glass is quite high a camera with a rotating screen so you can hold the camera above your head and still see the image is recommended.

perfect tour to learn about Brussels in 1/2 day and Antwerp

Muito boa excursão! Caminhadas calmas, explicações sucintas e suficientes e bom tempo livre para fotos e curtir as atrações. Falta uma parada de alguns minutos no Atomium e Palácio Imperial. Faltou incluir no roteiro o Arco do Triunfo, bonita atração de Bruxelas. Ou seja, a excursão pode começar mais cedo. Antuérpia foi maravilhosa, com tempo ideal para conhecer bem tudo que foi apresentado.

Very good guides, would like to do Antwerp again.
• Submitted 09 Sep 2015
Both tour guides were excellent. The morning tour had some technology issues but the guide did remarkably well speaking in 3 languages without a microphone. Antwerp was fascinating. As it was a Saturday the Diamond demonstration wasn't available but we got to see plenty of other sights including the port area. Frank was an excellent guide with a great sense of humour.

Both the morning excursion and the afternoon were so good. Dan was excellent in giving us information about Brussels and made sure everyone was accounted for. In the afternoon we had guide and he was wonderful as well. I wish I could remember his name but both of these guys provided a lot of information and history on the places we went too.

The Brussels sightseeing tour was great. Antwerp was a lot of walking but very interesting. My only suggestion is that if you want to see the diamond factory do not tour on a Saturday. It is in the Jewish part of town and their stores are closed on Saturdays. Otherwise very good trip.

A full day Antwerp trip would have given us more time to explore the town.

As a first time visitor to Brussels, the morning portion of the tour was a good outing and a nice introduction to the city. Frank, the English tour guide, was friendly and informative. But, the jewel of this tour was the visit to Antwerp. I can't remember the name of the English guide, but she was EXCELLENT! I do remember she was from Antwerp and the tour experience was very personal, engaging and thoughtfully conducted. Oh, Antwerp is a beautiful port city!

good. 4.5 star. One of the operator of Brussels's city tours was rude.
• Submitted 30 Jun 2015
The morning tour was delayed by bad traffic and we did not get to our afternoon Antwerp tour till 1:15pm and we barely made a quick visit to the WC before boarding the bus with no opportunity fo buy a sandwich. Morning tour of Brussels was fine. The Antwerp tour showed us some interesting surprise of the flora carpet in display. We were pleased. Both guides were fine but not as good as the guide that took us to Ghent and burgers.
