Probably rates at the bottom end of tours with this company. Support staff were not as friendly or welcoming as in other tours,real comedown from London. Just an uncomfortable trip and not a lot of relevant commentary. There were areas that I thought could've been explained better rather than OTT commentary on the EU...boring.(Can't understand how Brussels came to be... More

Ok overview and good use for transportation. Earphone sockets don't work. The earbuds they give you are very short and don't even reach the sockets. We basically heard nothing and figured out things on our own. It was a disappointment because we have used these Hop On Hop Off buses in other cities and never had problems. They weren't very...

The bus tour is ok, buses work fine...but a guided audio guide recorded 2013...in the EU capital! Also partly same content in both tours...but far too little was said during the tour...mostly music was played, while we passed one interesting building after the other.

Always book the sightseeing tours to get a good overview of the place and things of interest. The most annoying thing about the Brussels Sightseeing tour was that a large number of the earphone sockets do not work and as the bus is busy you only get half the experience. This seriously needs to be sorted out. In addition to... More

The tour only went to a few places and the earphones didn't work on most. They let more people on bus than there were seats, making it very unsafe. They made stops not listed, like a city bus, very confusing. There doesn't seem to be a lot of choices there but, I would try something else. In my opinion it... More

Forget the glamour, buses are not that fancy, sometimes crowded and there are no live commentary. But this still is the easiest way to see all the major attractions in Brussels. 2 different routes and if you are fast, you can ride both of those on one day, but then you don't have too much time to spend on some...

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
