    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.

    Good tour but flew past several nice photo opps. With only 6 of us we could have stopped more times.

    The guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant. As there were only 5 guests for the tour, I was grateful that it wasn't cancelled.

    This tour was very interesting and great way to get to know the city. the only issue was that it was extremely hard to hear the tour guide and she had to repeat everything 3 times once in English, once in French, once in Spanish...we went during the flower festival and it was very crowded so very hard to hear what was being said. I would suggest passing out those headphones to everyone on the tour so that we could hear what the guide was saying. Even with these issue, the tour guide was amazing...so nice and friendly and very knowledgeable.

    The tour was wasn't bad, but I had two main issues:
    1- the group was slightly larger than I expected, so hearing the guide was a challenge
    2- the tour guide was delivering the tour in 3 languages, so a lot of time was wasted for translations, let alone the confusion of shifting from one language to another as the story would lose a lot of its value when it is being told in chunks.

    Nice places to see however it would be nice if we could stop and take picture of the places pointed out in the tour more than just two stops. The tour guide knows his history.

    The problem with this tour was the bad guide named Frank who was mostly unintelligible,although very well informed.The places shown are better seen individually.It is a tour of two and a half hours and seems to be waste of money.The palace was shown as a drive by without any stoppage..

    Great overview of Brussels. Really good for the first day of the first visit. If you've been before or done other tours, I might skip this one.

    It is very fast paced, but worth it. You get to visit one of the oldest malls and chocolate factories. I wish there was more time to walk around and explore, but for what it was, it was nice.
