Fantastic introduction to Brussels
Bill_S, Mar 2023
We really enjoyed the Brussels walking tour with our guide Quentin. As well as showing us many interesting sights around the city, Quentin provided thoughtful and knowledgable commentary and historical/political context.
Excellent way to start our time in Brussels!
Stephen_V, Mar 2023
What a fantastic tour! We did this first thing when we arrived in Brussels and learned so much about the city and Belgium in general. Our tour guide Conor was excellent, funny, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour!
Great intro to Brussels. Broad range of stops and topics in 2 hrs

Intro to Brussels was good balance of description of significant Brussels structures and landmarks and history of the region. Perfect balance of serious and not so serious topics
Good experience

Was terrible weather but Connor did a great job keeping us as much out of windy and rainy places as possible at the same time had a great story to tell. Was very entertaining and interesting. Happy we joined this tour
Worth it!

We like to do walking tours as soon as we arrive to a new city. This tour is perfect because it gave us the opportunity to get to know the city of Brussels AND its history. Connor is a great historian and tour guide! Thank you!

5 stars isn't enough - they deserve an entire constellation
Iris_G, Nov 2022
I wouldn't write a review even if Jesus himself would come back and do a back flip right in front of me but damn it Tom is worth it. Guys, listen: you NEED to get this tour. Tom is engaging, and fun, full of cool tips and amazing recommendations. His vibes are everything that's missing from your life and his vitality is contagious. Imma book this again just to hear his grandfather's side of the history. P.S: the more you interact with him the better it gets Also, just because it rains doesn't mean it's bad weather
Great way for a brief overview

Tom gave his best to make a rainy day more fun. Interesting stories, great time, good tips to find some hidden places of Brussels.
Amazing tour
Rolf_Z, Nov 2022
Quentin did a tremendous job - lots of insights and historical background! Very personal and authentic!
I think guides should allow minimum 15 minutes
Stephen_O, Nov 2022
We were told by our guide when we booked on 8/11. The guy cancelled the door at 14:00 as only myself and wife showed up. Later two more showed up who he turned away and then three more people who he also turned away. So 8 in total before 14:15. I think guides should allow minimum 15 minutes
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Hello Stephen, We are very sorry for the unfortunate experience. It’s not our general policy to cancel tours, even if there are small numbers. The guide himself agrees that he should have run the tour and would like to offer his sincere apologies as well. We will make sure this issue doesn't happen again. I hope you joined the 2.30 pm tour with our fellow tour guides and enjoyed Brussels. Ambassadors Team

Great tour. Lots of fun, interesting facts and stories. Guide was wonderful. Only small negative -- Lots of uphill walking at the end with not much to see.
Great Overview
Matthew_P, July 2022
The title says it well: a “Perfect Introduction.” The tour was easily accessible, well organized, and well managed. Our guide Quintin was well informed, passionate, funny, and authentic. He gave a great overview of the history, culture, and hit all of the “hot spots” nearby. Great use of time and money.

PayWhatYouWant... and you'll want to pay!
Michael_C, May 2022
This walking tour was absolutely worth it. Quinten was a great guide and brought the city to life with interesting stories and anecdotes from a local. It was well-paced and interesting, with a great mix of humor and history. It's important to learn the local culture when visiting a new city, and this walking tour was a great way to do it!
