Best option to explore the city and famous points when you have very minimal time to spend. Both red and blue line covers most of the popular points of Brussels. We took a single day pass and just travelled through as we just had few hours to spare. But would recommend a 2 day pass for those who wants to spend time on each of the attractions. Audio guide could have been slightly better, its hard to identify points based on the commentary on audio guide.

We were a small group, but had a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide who combined a food tour with a men-on-horses tour... Great fun, great food and great company! Thank you

Bruno, the tour guide, was very hard working and polite. He gave us a lot of information. The driver was good too. Overall a very good value for money.
