  • Good experience learning about chocolates.

  • dont do this tour 22 pax in bus just driving around brussels two short breaks so as guide could have a smokeFRANK PHOTOS FROM MOVING BUS HOPELESS AND TOTALLY NOT VALUE FOR MONEY

  • The tour company was meant to pick us up from a hotel we nominated. We were there 15 mins prior and saw nobody. At the time the tour started, I still hadn't heard, and had to ask the hotel reception for help. They then told me the tour might be cancelled because it was raining. However, a bus did come by and picked us up, dropped us off with the rest of our group which had already started. The tour was half in English/Spanish which wasn't great. It wasn't a great tour- don't bother with this one.

  • The tour is excellent. Our guide was the best and answered any questions we asked, very knowledgeable.

  • We took the half day city tour of Brussels 2200DEB01 in the afternoon with Bruno on August 19, 2017. It was supposed to be in English but someone in the group wanted spanish so the tour guide did both langauges which was annoying and took away from information the rest of the group could have received. We went to the Basilica and we're left off for 30 minutes to look around on our own while our guide stayed behind with the bus driver. He really should have accompanied us and given us information.
    We drove around and looked at other parts other city, and went to see the Atomium from a distance. We drove past a chocolate
    factory which was the main thing I wanted to see and was advertised as a stop but he just pointed it out as we drove past. Shockingly our half day tour ended after a little over 2 hours. What a rip off. Avoid this tour and and hire a taxi to take you on a drive of the city. . You will save a bunch of money and will probably see as much if not more.

  • I'd really like more stops at the individual places.... it says half day tour but in reality it is only 2-3 hours long.

  • Have taken several tours with the company and this was not the same standard. Did not do everything as mentioned, and was very dry.

  • This tour was not very good.The guide smoked the entire time and it was blowing right in your face.It was rushed and we just drove past almost everything really fast and from a distance.The tour I signed up for was in English but it was a tour in 3 languages and I could barely understand his English.

  • Nice and informative.

  • Horrible This tour was led by a very aged lady who reminded me of a horrible, uninspired, boring history teacher. I love history and traveling, and I had a hard time staying awake. Thank goodness we did the chocolate demonstration and that wasn't led by her. A couple left the tour half way through I don't blame them, and she talked bad about them for the rest of the tour. SO UNPROFESSIONAL. Maybe they had to be somewhere... maybe they didn't want to listen to your horrible tour. It was also half in English, half in Spanish. The guide's primary language was Spanish and she definitely enbellished in her own language--I am bilingual, but my husband was not. I felt we got cheated.
