Super, very different!

With the guide, we were only three total. The pacing suited us well and the guide explained a lot. The stopping and going was often a bit stressful. The service that picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel was super. They had water and chocolate for us. The contact went smoothly through emails. We're already back home.

Interesting, if not always beautiful, sights and a good run

I still don't know whether I love or hate the Atomium but it was incredible to see up close regardless. The run also takes you through some very beautiful parks and the graveyard of the Notre Dame, which for me was one of the best things we saw though might be a bit creepy for some peoples' tastes! Unique way to see the city and if you're the type who loves working up a sweat then I can't recommend this tour enough.
