Very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide!
evelyn_l, Mar 2023
The guide is very knowledgeable and told us history of many buildings along the way. He also let us taste transitional waffles and chocolates. At the end of tour, he shared recommendations of other places to visits and eat in Brussels. It’s a very good tour and I definitely would recommend it to my friends.
Best thing I did while in Brussels
Phoebe_T, Mar 2023
This is my favourite thing that I did while visiting Brussels. The guide was kind, engaging and super knowledgeable. They get to know you and give you personalised information and suggestions based on your interests and the interests of group. You'll learn about and see everything from interesting architecture and history to chocolate and waffle delights. This tour had it all! The guide also gave us personal suggestions for the rest of our trip. Loved this so much and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the city!
BEST thing to do in Brussels!
Kimberly_S, Mar 2023
Our guide, Sancar, was amazing! He was so interesting and entertaining, and covered so much information on our tour. For me, the highlight was how he treated the group. He made sure we all knew each others’ names, and he knew all of ours, plus our country of origin. I was traveling solo that day, but felt like I was amongst friends for the tour! Also, do this early in your visit, so you know the best places to see during your stay in Brussels.
Exactly as expected

Sancar was a great tour guide, very passionate and keen to share his knowledge. We were a small group and he took the time to speak to us individually. Really nice that he shared what else to do for the rest of our trip, places to go/avoid in the time we had. Thanks again, would recommend!
Brussels the humble jewel
umakaranth, Feb 2023
My guide was absolutely fantastic. I was the only person signed up but he went ahead and made it a great experience. Gave me so much wonderful information and genuinely interested and respectful. I had great tips from him without having the need to ask specifically. He understood what i needed and at one point we had a great discussion about society, culture and politics as well. I would highly recommed him. Very humble, kind and well informed
Worth it!

Sancar is a brilliant tour guide full of local knowledge! Really enjoyed the tour with him and our group would recommend to anyone visiting Brussels.
Informative and interesting!
Malcolm_C, Jan 2023
We were in Brussels for a day before the tour and thought it was eclectic but nothing to see. This tour showed us the deep history and political importance of the town with key sites we had just walked passed without notice the day before.
A great day in Belgium!

I had the pleasure of being guided by Sancar. It was worthwhile doing this as it gave me a general sense and history of the city. This helps provide context if you intend staying for more than a day. He was open to answering any questions I had. Recommend this!

Sancar was a lovely guide. Personable and extremely knowledgeable. He was generous with his time and, even though it was a very cold day, it was barely noticeable because the information was so interesting! I wouldn't change a thing and you shouldn't hesitate to book his tour.
Excellent tour. Sancar...

Great walking tour a must do in Brussels!
Caitlin_E, Dec 2022
One of the best walking tours I’ve been on while away in Europe! The tour guide was so friendly and knowledgeable about everything Belgium. The tour included trying Belgium waffles and chocolates! I let the tour guide know I can’t eat dairy and he went out of his way to include vegan Belgium chocolates in the tasting which was very kind! We were also emailed a list of recommendations for the rest of our stay. Highly recommend 😊
This tour has a bit of everything
