What people are saying about Antwerp
The guide was knowledgable but we didn't visit a lot of important places or historically famous places. The group was too big to make the tour efficient. The tour company is very poor in coordinating. They missed my hotel pick up and I had to rush walk to their office to make it to the tour buss. It happens twice. The bus driver almost got into accident twice inside city area.
Patrick replaced Roger who was unavailable that day but the interest of the visit did not suffer at all: we had to deal with a real passionate and lover of Antwerp who made us want to come back to maybe take advantage be longer of his knowledge of the history of the city and its little secrets. Thanks to him for these few hours of sharing
Well worth the money and well organized
We enjoyed this tour as it was well organized. There was about 3-4 hours on foot in Antwerp and an hour to do what you wanted so it provided enough flexibility to see at least the most interesting parts of the city properly. The guide was knowledgeable and interesting. The pickup at the hotel was very efficient also. Definitely recommend.
quite a complete visit to Antwerp, the guide was a bit dry and if someone asked him any questions he would answer him with displeasure. I was tired of translating everything into Spanish but I recommend it
