    The Brussels sightseeing tour was great. Antwerp was a lot of walking but very interesting. My only suggestion is that if you want to see the diamond factory do not tour on a Saturday. It is in the Jewish part of town and their stores are closed on Saturdays. Otherwise very good trip.

    The information provided and the photo opportunities were just what we hoped for on our short stay in Brussels. The guides were amazing.

    Group too large and having guide translate two languages can be tedious and time consuming abbreviating the explanations.

    The tour I took filled the requirements that I wanted. I had only a short couple of days to see as much as I could of Brussels and Antwerp and I did just that. The bus was clean and comfortable and the driver was skilled. Even the hotel pickup and return at the end of the day was well executed. The guides were more than knowledgeable as they told us exactly what we needed to know at each stop and as we were in between. The tour definitely told me that I want to return with my wife and spend more time in Brussels and Antwerp.

    Very good tour of 2 beautiful cities. Guides were very knowledgable and in Antwerp had plenty of free time to look around. Only disappointment in Brussels was not stopping at the overlook where a panoramic view of the city would have been amazing. When you go to the top of the museum the glass screen have a small circular cut out on each side. However this can be busy so as the glass is quite high a camera with a rotating screen so you can hold the camera above your head and still see the image is recommended.

    Likes:
    Friendly knowledgable tour guide
    Ability to see a lot in a shorter time than doing it on our own

    Could live without:
    Four Spanish female who already know each other seem interested in very loud socializing on the bus. They made the tour unpleasant by annoying the passenger who were seating in-front of them with laud comments/laughter. It's should be a tour guide responsibility to establish an order and respect on the bus/tour so everyone enjoys it.
    It was very hard to hear the guide on the streets, especially due to the large group booking around 42-46pax. Ear buds are really needed on walking part of the tour.
