Rania_E, Mar 2023
we had a great guide that was very tentative to my 85 year old mother in law! He was very knowledgeable and took us to gems in Antwerp
Great activity for people new to the city or Belgium in general

I booked throught viatour, it was something like a 3€ booking fee. You might be able to sign up directly through the Legends website. The tour itself is free, if you want to leave a tip at the end, check out the nearby ATM (Melkmarkt 20/22, 2000 Antwerpen, Belgium) prior to the tour starting. We had Bart as our guide and he was super cool. Very knowledgeable, witty and in tune with our crowd of 13-ish people. You'll have tons of opportunity to get some beautiful pics and learn a bit of history about Antwerp. If you've got a loose agenda and are staying in the city for a while, try to schedule your tour at the front end of your trip, it will get you more comfortable with the city and give you a chance to plan out other things that may have peaked your interest while walking around. Also we went on Dec 10th 2022 about 10:30am. As the tour ended, the Christmas market started to pick up and make the area pretty busy. I'd recommend getting a morning timeslot, it was nice and quiet.
Great tour
Elena_F, Dec 2022
Our group is so large that they split it into. We have a female tour guide, whose name I can’t remember, but she was wonderful. Really informative and kind and went the extra mile. Lots of great stops in Antwerp and I felt like I got such a well-rounded experience. So much so, but I prefer Antwerp over Bruges and again. Plus I was able to spot the best Belgium fry place in all of Antwerp.Great tour and make sure to tip!
We recommend this tour.
Jane_H, Dec 2022

Els was great! Enthusiastic with great stories and information. Thanks to her we later went and toured the Plantin Museum.
Luc legend of Antwerpen.
Joseph_G, Oct 2022
Luc was our guide and he was most engaging, fun and showed a great love of his city. The tour highlighted some of the historic features of Antwerp and the myth of the giants hand. The duration of 3 1/2 hours was just right for us. Would definitely recommend the tour.
Perfect tour! +++
Silvia_G, Aug 2022
Bart was an excellent guide. We got the chance to know the city and its history in a really funny and interesting way. We had such a great time and we would repeat it anytime
Perfect intro to Antwerp
Martin_M, Mar 2022
Flip our friendly guide speaks excellent English and introduced us to Antwerp. We had no idea that there Antwerp has so much history with so much to see.
Worst walking tour ever
Angela_B, Feb 2022
The tour shared very little history about the town. In most of the stops we just stayed for 1-2 minutes and the information shared was the obvious one. I didn’t learn anything about the town. The worst walking tour I have done to date.
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Hi, a pitty that the tour did not meet your expectations. Kind regards, Peter
We loved it
Katja_L, July 2021
The Tour was great we got all the information we wanted about the City. Our guide Baren was well informed and he did an anxious g job introducing his city to us and make us fall in love with the city. We highly recommend this tour!
Interessante Tour
