Amazing day In Brussels
Michelle_A, Sep 2023
Emma was very knowledgeable and we had a very nice day being guided round the sights of Brussels Definitely would recommend this trip and our guide Emma
Great tour.
Robert_H, Jul 2023
It was an amazing experience. Michael was fantastic and would highly recommend. Tour covered food, history modern and past as well as artistic styles.
Michael is nice
Debbi_H, Jul 2023
Our guide Michael was a super nice guy. Very knowledgeable. He adapted the tour for us as we went. He spent time talking to each of us. The tour loses a star because we originally booked for 7. My son got deployed, so only 6 of us could attend. They did not reduce the price.

The hidden gem was our guide,David. He went above and beyond to make our visit to Belgium very special.
Michael in Brussels is simply wonderful!
CarolJ, Apr 2023
I had an outstanding walking tour with Michael in Brussels. I was in contact with him via WhatsApp prior to my visit and Micheal is very approachable and friendly. He picked me up from the hotel I was staying at and was very prompt. He showed me the hidden gems of the city and shared so many histories, culture and architecture of Brussels which were the topics I'm interested in after filing out the survey. I had such a wonderful time with him on my first day in town and we had a great time together. Was blessed with a wonderful weather on Easter Sunday and Michael managed the walking tour so nicely. I didn't feel like I was on a tour with him, but more like strolling around town with an old friend. Highly recommended Michael and he's a beautiful person with great energies!
Great day to spend in Brussels!

Walid was an excellent guide and I had a great time. I only wish that I had received the provider's survey in advance, there is something broken in the communication between the guide to the agency to the Viator...
Very knowledgeable guide who wanted to make sure we learned everything we could!
Donna_H, Jul 2022
Our guide was an older gentleman who was very considerate of my elderly mother, who was part of our group. He slowed the pace down and make sure she didn't feel left out or that she was holding us up. He very much tailored the tour to fit our interests and our abilities. He spent considerably more than the contracted time with us just because he wanted to show us as much as he could. He was genuinely delightful and thoughtful. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with him.

We were impressed with the guide's knowledge about getting around the city. We definitely saw parts of the city we would not have found on our own. Would recommend the tour if you really want to see more than the guide books show you!
Private tour of Brussels
Andrew A, Sep 2019
This was this individuals first tour ever. He had a basic knowledge of the sites he took us tour. He was very anxious at the beginning but settled down. He took us to the main city sites and was very pleasant. Unfortunately we had paid for a 3 hour tour and he had to leave 45 minutes early for a business meeting.

I had an amazing time! My host was incredibly professional and kind and I felt like I was touring a city with a friend. We stopped for chocolates and even sat and people-watched at a cafe. Just an incredible experience! I wish I could find a guide like Andrea at every city i visit.
