Great way to see Brussels
Beverly_F, Oct 2022
We enjoy doing bike tours where ever we go. It’s the best way to cover a lot of ground and see a lot of sites. Our was great unfortunately I can’t remember his name. Our tour was in Brussels
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi Beverly, thank you very much for your review. Cycling is the best way to see Brussels, we agree. Cheers!
Well worth it. I wish I could do this all week!
Rod_C, Sept 2022
Our guide, Ali, was very informative. He had little bits of information that were so interesting about the places we visited. We never felt hurried. It was such a joy to to see so much of the city by bike. Top me the experience of biking in Brussels was so much fun. We covered so much ground that I was able to check off my whole day plan of sightseeing in 3 hours. I would highly, highly recommend the tour. Just a word of caution, there are a couple of hill climbs but the group waits just in case you can't keep up. The pace of the whole ride was very relaxed. Even if you think it's cold, your body will eventually warm up just from movement, so be prepared to dress in layers. If it's cold out, don't forget to wear gloves. And check the weather before booking, unless you're used to biking in the rain. We were fortunate to have ex weather despite the forecast. My only advice to Ali is to give a very short orientation on the use of gears before we leave the station. Apparently not everyone knows how to use them effectively on the climbs.
Response from Host, Oct 2022
Hi Rod, wow thank for your super nice review. As you say, cycling allows you to see in just three hours as much as in two days on foot and it is a LOT less tiring. Hope to see you again in Brussels soon. Cheers

laurie_s, Sept 2022
Our guide was very good. The tour just wasn't what I expected. And, unfortunately, it was raining. But we pressed on.
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Hi Laurie, thank you for your review. We're happy to learn that you found the guide very good. We wonder what your expectations were when you decided to join a bike tour. Our tours are offered rain or shine and we agree of course that it is much better to do it on a dry day but we can't control the weather unfortunately. We try to provide you the best possible experience given the situation. Cheers!
See a lot in a short time
Amanda_L, July 2022
By biking you are able to see a lot of Brussels in a short amount of time. We stopped at the main highlights but didn’t really get to soak anything in. While the biking was not strenuous it was stressful navigating pedestrians, other cyclists, and cars- but certainly helped you experience the local biking culture. I would say this tour is mostly for someone very comfortable on a bike- we crossed lanes of traffic which made me nervous at times.

connie_m, June 2022
Too many people. Two bikes broke down along the way. I would not recommend. Find another tour. Group size too big for amount of traffic.
Response from Host, June 2022
Hi Connie, we take up to 14 people on each tour and this is clearly stated before you booked. We could take more people on each ride but we've decided to tour with small groups to improve our guests confort (almost all tours in Europe take far more people than us). Bike can encounter mechanical issues while on the tour, that is why we immediately give our guests a back up bike from the public bike system.
Great bike tour
marleneuria, June 2022
Loved riding bike through out entire city. Great way to see everything. Guide was very good and English good
Response from Host, June 2022
Hello and thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review. Brussels is a nice city to bike. Cheers!
Wonderful!
Michal_L, June 2022
Loved loved loved this day! This is a must do if youve never been to Brussels. Our young guide Hochian(i cant remember her name as i am terrible with Chinese names) was super cute and her knowledge of the city and its history was impressive. She made sure not to lose us on the busy streets. Overall I give this day an A+ rating. The bikes were great and luckily the breaks worked well cause there are some steep down hills. And some tough uphills where we walked. Highly recommend.
Response from Host, June 2022
Hi Michal, thank you for your compliments, Hongxin is happy to learn that you enjoyed the tour so much. We only wonder why you didn't give her 5 stars. There is only one downhill road at the beginning, less than 100 meters long. In any case, thank you for your review. Cheers!
Enjoyable bike ride
Ben_H, June 2022
Saw some nice areas of Brussels and learnt some interesting facts. Cesar our tour guide was a funny guy and made the experience enjoyable.

We had a wonderful tour guide, Cesar, who added a positive attitude and entertaining jokes along the way!

Great tour by Gary. So much history and so many beautiful views. A great way to see the city from outside looming in. Thank you

Thank you for your review. Cheers!
Excellent Bicycle Tour. Do not miss!
Larry_J, May 2022
Great bicycle tour. I highly recommend this tour. Great tour guide. The tour takes you all around the historic sites. Very pleasant bicycle ride.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Larry, we're happy to learn you enjoyed the visit. This tour allows you to see all the main sights in just 3.5 hours. Biking is a lot better than walking. Ideal for visitors with limited time in Brussels. Cheers!
Great fun tour

Brussels bike tour
lpksco, May 2022
I love to ride bikes, learn & sightseeing at the same time. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, but lack of fun and concern for our safety. She seem to be worry about getting the facts, but not the other factors that goes along with our experience. I had done bike tours in Paris, London and Rome and this was lacking of connection with the group. Maybe it was her 1st time.
Response from Host, May 2022
We'll discuss your valuable comment on our next guide meeting. Thank you very much for your review it helps us improve. Cheers!
Fantastic experience to see Brussels
Faith_N, May 2022
Fantastic experience! Definitely the best way to see all of Brussels in a limited time. Zoe was a fantastic guide, really knowledgeable and friendly. We cycled around all the tourist spots and stopped for the best fries. I was travelling alone, hut the group was really friendly and very inclusive. Zoe was also happy to give advice and places to eat etc. This tour is really good for seeing lots and giving you and idea of where you'd like to go back to. 100% recommend.
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Faith, thank you for taking the time to write a review. Zoë says thank you! Indeed the fries are fantastic! The bike tour is a great way to see the city and as you say, you'll have a great time even travelling alone. Cheers!
Nice ride through Brussels centre
Madhur_S, Apr 2022
Led by Zoe this was a good ride through the cobbled streets and roads of central Brussels. Couple of slopes can make you sweat a bit although the really big one has the option of an elevator. Good information about the various sites and generally got good tips about sightseeing in Brussels and also Antwerp.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Thank you very much for your review. We're happy to learn you enjoyed your tour with Zoë. Cheers!
Such a cool experience
Daniel E, Aug 2019
This tour was amazing! Marie was great and gave us an incredible oral history of the area. She took us to some pretty incredible sites and also was very personable and spent time chatting with us as well. I would recommend this to anybody visiting Brussels!
Disappointing Outing
BikeRider75, June 2019
First of all, Brussels is not a bicycle friendly city. The streets are narrow, there is a lot of traffic, and the cobblestones don’t help. Our “Small Group Tour” had NINE riders, plus the guide, who was as surprised as we were as to the size of the group. This made staying together very difficult, especially as the traffic lights can change very quickly. The bikes themselves were fine, but there were problems with the handbrakes. They need to do a better job making sure you don’t have to use a death grip, as there are some significant downhills. Aneliese, our guide, was very good, and her English is excellent. Unfortunately the other factors are what determined our rating of the tour.
delightful and interesting guide
anna_a, May 2019
Annaleise was our guide and was totally focused on the group to provide a safe, enjoyable and interesting tour. she obviously loves her city and was keen to get us to as well. would highly recommend this tour.
Loved our bike tour!
Mara_B, Aug 2018
We had a great morning with our knowledgeable and entertaining guide James and 10 other international riders from about ages 12-60. We laughed a lot, felt safe on the roads and got a much deeper understanding of the city and its rich and complex history, both ancient and modern. This is a tour I would do again and highly recommend to riders of any ability who are game for a little adventure.

Elisabete D, Oct 2017
This was an excellent way to see the city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and encouraged questions. The stop for beer and authentic Belgian Fries was lovely. I would highly recommend this tour
