The title of the tour was appropriate.

Tiago was very personable and knowledgable about Brussels. Everyone enjoyed his tour. He also made everyone feel at home among family.
Brussels Private Tour
Barbara_E, June 2023
Our private tour guide in Brussels was excellent. Through his story telling we got the impression that he liked his job and that he was genuinely a good person. He made several recommendations for food while we were walking around touring We followed his recommendations and ended up having one of our favorite meals as a result.
great afternoon in Brussels
Julian_D, May 2023

Excellent tour!
Thomas_L, May 2023
We very much enjoyed our tour, and Tiago, our guide was excellent! He was quite knowledgeable of Brussels and we had a thorough explanation of the various types of beers here in Belgium!
An afternoon Brussels delight
ken_l, Apr 2023
Tiago was the perfect guide. His passion towards his work rubs off on everyone in the group. Some of the stories may not be too relevant nor believable but the way it was told makes all the difference. His additional insights and information on local delicacies and places to eat and drink certainly makes for interesting consideration. Definitely worth the experience. Well done.
The perfect tour !
Alex_C, Apr 2023
Tour provided everything you need to know and want to know on both a historical and practical perspective. Tour guide was outstanding and extremely accommodating. He was animated and one of the best story tellers I have ever heard. This is a must take your in Brussels!
Brussels private tour with Tiago
tomasevich, Apr 2023
We had a great tour with Tiago! He was very knowledgeable and friendly, and not only informed us about the history of Brussels, beer, and chocolate, but also out of the way places to go and explore! We followed up on several suggestions and were very glad we did so! Highly recommend you ask for Tiago when visiting Brussels!
Awesome day in Brussels!
Mary_B, Mar 2023
Christophe was amazing! Knowledgeable, outgoing, friendly and willing to accommodate our interests. Highly recommend!
Terrific Tour
TimothyBD, Dec 2022
This was a great tour. Christophe was an outstanding guide and his knowledge of the history of this beautiful city was outstanding. I highly recommend this tour.
A tour to take in Brussels
Sandra_C, Nov 2022
We were suppose to get Christophe for our tour based on excellent reviews .Our guide was Mariana who gave us a variety of unique history that we would not find on our own. Only thing is that she had a soft speaking voice- no complaints. Listen closely and you will be surprised of all of the hidden history of Brussels.
Guide asked what we were...
Lynn_A, Oct 2022
Guide asked what we were interested in and adjusted the tour based on our input. That made the tour much more interesting.
Wonderful Tour with Shanthuru!
Sarah_R, Oct 2022
We had a wonderful first introduction to Brussels with Shanthuru! He was right on time and showed us tons of unique and interesting spots in Brussels that we most likely wouldn’t have found or known about on our own. We enjoyed learning tons about the city on our first few hours of a week long trip. We would highly recommend this tour to get your bearings and to find places you’d like to visit again. 5 Star!
I have visited 89...
bob, Sept 2022
I have visited 89 countries and have been on numerous tours. I can honestly say Tioga was the best guide I have ever had. He is very personable and knowledgeable. I felt like I was traveling with a buddy
Great experience!!!
Mindy_K, July 2022
Had a great tour with Christophe. Really showed us some “hidden gems” that we would’ve never seen on another tour. He was very knowledgeable and we highly recommend this tour and our guide!!!
Extremely disappointing!
Hsiao_d, July 2022
We went to the meeting place on time, but the guide never showed up! It ruined our plan with the short time we had in Brussels.
