The guide lacked a bit more interaction and dynamism. The driver did not allow me to enter the bus eating, which I can understand, however when I entered the bus, everyone was eating. The guide did not give us an exact place to meet us on the way back, which caused a person to get lost and we left an hour late. For everything else it was very good.
A very interesting visit, the guide Jesus made it great despite the fact that we were more than 50 people, but with the radio he solved the tour well. Although if possible the group should have been divided between two guides.
Marta our great guide, the city and the excursion we loved, it hurts that all Antwerp is under construction, organization by impeccable good morning tours.
The Keukenhof is beautiful! But 2.5 hours is a short time to meet you.
