Details about this tour

If you are not satisfied with the image Brussels is offering at a glance and you are interested in finding out why Grand place architecture has the golden allure and all the history behind the statues spread all over the centre, then Brussels Mysteries and Legends will be the perfect guided tour for you.

The Mysteries and Legends tour will start in Grand Place Square, for a detailed introduction into the bi-dimensional city Brussels. During the tour you will be able to widen your sight and observe elements that would often be only a few metres from the heavily trodden tourist pathways but passed unnoticed. The Belgian architecture would be one of the important subjects of the tour, along with the symbols of the Freemasons or the path to the catholic pilgrimage of Santiago de Compostella, whose marks are spread all over the city.

You will participate in a 3h+ puzzle, where every spotted symbol will bring you closer to understanding the legends behind the walls of Brussels. You will learn about the history of the citys Freemasons and philosophy they were advocates of, while paying attention to the Zodiac signs that can be found on the buildings. St Michaels Cathedral will be the location where you will visit an authentic Freemason grave and you will receive a throughout explanation about the architecture of the church and the legend of the colourful windows for a genuine encounter with history.

During the tour you will come across the concealed city below the Royal palace of Brussels and puff the dust away from the history of the founder of the Templars, Godfried of Bouillon, whose life is well-worth sharing. And because Belgiums golden liquid is a must for every visit here, you will enjoy one of the best Belgian beers that will make sure you will remember this trip to Brussels.

    Loved this tour. So interesting with how the mysteries were presented. Very persuasive. I especially liked all the small details pointed out that are so easily overlooked. My husband and I have been talking about this tour since we took it. Highly recommend this. The guide is so entertaining and passionate!

    We had had Avo as a tour guide just two days before on a different tour, so we knew we were going to have a good guide. There were just the three of us in the group, so it was truly a private tour experience. If you are into Dan Brown style of mysteries, this is definitely worth your time. Avo has done a lot of personal research on many of mysteries hidden in plain sight in Brussels, but it was really interesting to have things pointed out to us that we hadn't noticed, like the Camino de Santiago. Definitely worth doing!

    We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour of Brussels and saw lots more than we ever expected to. We had been on a three-hour bus tour the day before and had seen most of the major spots (from the bus) but Marc took us to some places that most tourists (and many locals) never get to see. It was informative and interesting. It was also a great chance to revisit places that we hadn't stopped at on the bus tour. We opted for a coffee instead of a beer and Marc's choice of cafe was great. His recommendation of the best place to buy Belgian chocolates was backed up with a taste of the very best chocolate ever... we even found our way back there afterwards to indulge in a small bag to take home. Well done Marc... great tour!

    There was very little mysterious or legendary, but the tour was a nice walk through Brussels.

    Private 1/2 day walking tour around Brussels. Tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable but I don't think it was worth the money.
