We've done hop on and off buses in every European city we've been to because it's a good way to get the history of the city and information about the different attractions other than walking around trying to find things. We were not really able to do that because the headphones they give you are 2 feet long. So the... More

We went on this tour on our first day here. It was €23 each (although if you pick up a flyer from nearby Chocopolis you can save €2 each / about £16) and there are two lines you can go on: to the north west (Atomium); and south east (European Parliament etc). It was raining on the day we went... More

I think the owners of this company do not read these comments which is a shame, as the complaints repeat and nothing is being done. First, they have 2 routes running throughout the city and they are quite different and are both excellently designed (the distance between stops on no. 1 is too long though, for hot summer days...) They... More

The hop on hop off bus tour was by far the worst we have experienced in any city. Audio tape was out of sync, commentary was uninteresting and often ignored a seemingly important site. Would not recommend. I took both segments. My husband was so disgusted he took only one. Spend the money on a good tour book and walk!... More

Buy a hop on hop off ticket that can take you to all the must see places at your convenience. Stop at the parlamentarium to see where the European community meets regularly.

We were slightly disappointed in the tour around the city, as the audio tape was out of sync with the actual buildings we were supposed to be viewing.Thankfully,it was a lovely day and the canopy was drawn back at various stages of the tour, so that we had a clear view of the attractions.It would be useful if the lower...

The tour is in two parts - we only did one because it was such a waste of time. The commentary was out of sync with the location and there were so many interesting things to see about which we were told nothing. We got very few details of the city's history and clearly no-one of any historical importance has... More

Whilst not the cheapest, this was a good way to see Brussels quickly. We opted to stay on the bus and travel both loops as we wanted ti slend more time exploring the beer cafes. ?23 for the 24 hour pass. If the weather is nice, this is a pleasant way to see Brussels and catch some sun upstairs on... More

I've been on city sightseeing buses all over the world but this was a negative experience due to the driver.... mounting curbs and spoke to us like dirt. I'm a bus driver myself and if I drove or spoke to people like that I would be sacked!

Worst city sightseeing we have ever done- I've used this company in London, New York, Tallinn, Berlin, Bath, York etc etc and usually LOVE them- but this one lacked it all. The commentary was dull, the bus was late, it was extremely expensive compared to other tours in other cities. We only had a few hours in Brussles and used... More
