What people are saying about Brussels

Great tour! The food was delicious!!! Honestly, if you do the tour in the morning there is no need for breakfast, because you get so much food. We had a beer, did some sightseeing, then went to a restaurant and had a salad with two big shrimp croquettes, a huge pot of mussels, vol-au-vent with fries and an eclair for dessert. You could also get a coffee at the end of the meal. Each course was accompanied by a different beer. Then we did some more sightseeing and ended the tour with two pralines each, which was more than enough after the huge feast xD Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable. He gave us tips for further destinations we wanted to visit and showed us cheap options where we could buy the beers we tried. I can only recommend doing this tour!
