1 ticket will cover 2 areas for 24 hours. No longer a personal guided tour, all about the computer. 90 mins to cover each route. Get off and on a when are fit. A could feel for the city when you don't have alot to time on your hand. Pick and chose what you want to see. Enjoyable ttrip overall.

Brussels is bigger than you think and this is a good way of getting an overview in a short period of time. The commentary is a bit disjointed and pretty thin to be honest and it does seem to involve a lot of wriggling wires to maintain a connection. Having said that, it was quite fun to work out what...

We took the bus from next to the Central station, luckily the weather was good so we could sit upstairs, the tour took just over 2 hours, good value for money and in that time we saw most of the main attraction on offer in Brussels, a great way of seeing the City

Buses were in poor order. Was on three buses and all had a cracked window at the top. One bus had seats that badly needed cleaned. Headphones were not long enough for the person on the outside of the seat to use. Could not use headphones at all at the front of two of the buses due to the length.... More

Two seperate tours of the city can easily be done in a day. So you will see all the city. With a tired, headset commentary don't expect to be entertained or informed. But use it for an overview of the city.

The commentary on this bus tour leaves a lot to be desired - on both lines there are large periods of silence though you are driving past interesting looking places. When the commentary is working it is not really giving any good information. This said, it is a good way to get out to the attractions easily and see a... More

Have rated average as was good rather than very good. We have experienced similar hop on hop off bus tours in other cities that were better. That said, there are two different routes included in the ticket price and which have a 24 or 48 hour option which make for great value. We only had time for one tour (line1)... More

I had some time to spare and paid 21 euros to travel on line2.Having been on similar sort of city busses I knew that I would get small earphones and a recorded commentary.when I got off I asked the driver to confirm where I caught the bus.there was no real problem.

There are two lines, which taken together, give you a really nice look at the city. However, unlike in other cities where I've taken the hop on hop off tour with City Sight Seeing, the stops are incredibly difficult to find, are poorly marked, and a lot of them are quite a walk from where you want to actually get...
