Really good half day tour with a little walking tour at the beginning before we joined the coach. Bruno, our guide, was lovely and knowledgeable. Also our thanks to the driver from Romania whose name I've forgotten.

Great tour with Jasmine, learned a great deal about Brussels, and really enjoyed the stop in the oldest shopping mall in Europe!

Amazing experience! Tour departed on time, our guide was very knowledgeable and immediately started to tell us very interesting things about Brussels and Belgium. It was very nice to see so many sites in just a few hours, I would really recommend to do this tour at the beginning of your holiday as it gives you a great orientation of the city. We started visiting the main square, and then jumped on our minibus to visit the rest of the attractions. Minibus was nice and cozy, and we saw many interesting sites while heading to our next stop: the atomium. We had time to take some pictures in front of the automium, before to head to the cinquantenaire park and then back to the starting point.

A great way to visit the important and scenic sights of an old city like Brussels. The coach tour provided a comfy way to move around the city and view the Atomium, Asian Gardens, and the city's palace. We love the town square very much, day or night, just splendid.

Really interesting tour, hilighting the history of the historic section of brussels. The tour wanders through the old part of town before you hop on a bus to see more remote parts of the city including a stop at the Atomium.

Had a great time on the tour despite being a rainy day! The guide was very informative and the travelogue on the coach also pointed out the buildings that were of interest. The visit to the chocolatier was wonderful as we were shown how the chocolate was 'tempered' before being put into the shapes that were being made. Having a 'taster' of the chocolate after that was really good. Altogether a good value for money trip.
