Full description

Get an overview of the fascinating city of Brussels, with a tour through the medieval and Baroque city, the industrial city, the bourgeois city, and on to modern Brussels. This tour ensures you get to see all the parts of this multi-faceted city.

Learn about the city’s museums, where the best bars and local beers are, and where to buy the best chocolate at a reasonable price. Your guide will also answer any practical questions you might have about restaurants, attractions, nightlife, or even just getting around on public transport. During your walking tour of the city, the tour will be split into two different areas: the Upper City and Lower City. The tour is structured this way to help you better understand the origins and historic development of Brussels.  Highlights on your tour of the Lower City include the Grand Palace, the Everard t'Serclaes monument on Charles Buls street, the Manneken Pis and Grands Carmes street, Marché au Charbon street, the Covering of the Senne, Riches Claires street, and Grande Île street, Saint-Géry Island and more.  Whilst perusing through the Upper city, you'll notice a very different style. During this portion of the tour, you will see landmarks such as the Grand Place, the power of merchants, the Galeries Royales St Hubert, and the Mort Subite.

You'll also see the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula (visit inside: stained glass windows, the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, the pulpit), the Royal Park, the Royal Palace, the Royal Square, and The Palace of Coudenberg among many others.

Walid is an excellent guide. He made our trip to Brussels much more enjoyable by explaining the history & local culture in an engaging & fun way. The tour was really interesting & well-paced. We learned so much & returned later to some of the places he showed us to see more/try local food etc. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Tiago guided us very interestingly around La Grande Place and into the surrounding side streets, pointing out so much we would have missed otherwise. He has a intriguing take on royal history + heritage, totally informative and in the best sense entertaining. Bravo, Tiago, excellente tour , très appréciée par au moins deux Irlandais !!

This is what we called a very fun and enjoyable walking tour. The guide was pay attention to very details, and also pay attention of us. He also very funny and his explanation was so enjoyable. The pace also perfect, not too slow, not too fast. We covered almost all main attractions inside the old city of Brussels. And surprisingly, 2,5 hours never enough for us. Definitely recommended when you want to know Brussels in easy way.
