Excellent Tour - First tour we did in Brussels and did not disappoint. Great opportunity to walk Brussels on foot and learn about some of its rich history. We went when it was cold so I’d imagine it would be even better with slightly warmer weather but Rachel was an excellent tour guide, so much so we made sure to be back the next day for her morning tour of Brussels. Highly recommend this tour!

Excellent Tour - Sebastian was our tour guide and was exceptional. His humour, knowledge and personality made it a really interesting, enjoyable and informative tour. Got to see some parts of the city we hadn’t thought to explore before this tour. He engaged with each person and made for a super evening. Good job

Another side of Brussels - We had Sebastien as our guide tonight. He was an awesome storyteller and kept us all engaged with stories at each point. Would highly recommend! I loved the bit about “stumbling” across the Holocaust victim tags on the ground.

Fun and interesting tour - Sébastien was really trying to get everyone into the story he has to tell. He speaks in a fluent and funny way and leaves room for questions. As a Belgian I liked all the little jokes he brought into it and my Albanian boyfriend liked all the history he was getting to know about Brussels. So well done! Ooh and he gave us a good hint to go to a bar. So we went 😀 see picture
