Sancar, the tour guide, was amazing. Our group was small which allowed us to get personable. Sancar was very knowledgeable about the history of Brussels and spoke great English. All the sites were beautiful and full of interesting history and the waffle and chocolate tasting was a bonus. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

Excellent tour of Brussels. An engaging tour with historical, cultural, religious, political, and economic topics discussed. A lot to accomplish in a few hours. The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and clearly loves what he does and where he is from. Would recommended this tour on your first day in Brussels to orient you to the city and discover things you want to return to (like museums you pass by). Also provided at the end is a list of beer/museum/restaurant recommendations that was very helpful.

Great introduction to the history of Brussels. Sancar explained key events, institutions, and people such that it was easy to follow and understand significance. He inserted fun facts to lighten the history lesson and the treats along the way were fantastique! Sancar made sure we left well informed.

The best part of the tour was our guide. He brought the city and its history to life. Smart, knowledgeable, great personality, willing to answer all.our questions and truly seemed to enjoy what he was doing. Lots of walking on a lot of cobble stone streets. If I could give a rating over ten he would get at least a 12!

This tour was excellent. Our tour guide walked us around the city to all the highlights telling us all about the history and stories of the sites. He was extremely knowledgeable and had a great personality. He welcomed questions. He walked at a great pace so that we saw everything but we’re not worn out. And he gave us excellent tips at the end. This is a great way to start your time in Brussels!

We loved this walking tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information both historical and general knowledge about Brussels & all of Belgium, if you love history it is definitely for you. We got to try Belgian waffles & Belgian praline chocolates included in the tour, they were amazing! We had walked past many of the chocolate shops previously & never entered - but hearing the history behind them definitely helped & made the story of Brussels come to life. I would recommend doing this at the start of your trip as we did it at the end and although it was still great, we wished we could have been able to go to the restaurants etc that the guide recommended to us at the end. We felt the tour was well paced & we did not feel rushed - we got a lot of time to explore & ask any questions. This tour definitely helped us to love Brussels a bit more & the fact it is such a progressive and forward thinking city. Thank you again for an amazing tour, I would definitely come back to Brussels after it! Although I cannot remember our guides name (so sorry!!) he took the time to know all of our names & where we were from, he was very friendly and helpful. Thanks again!! 100% recommend.
