Known public sculpture of Brussels Manneken Pis and Landmark of Brussels Atomium illustrate the different directions in Belgians thinking. Yes, it is due to the time of the formation of both artworks.

We lived in England, Berlin, Munich and Stuttgart over many years and had opportunities to visit most of Europe. One delightful place was the main square in Brussels. Nothing special about the square itself but the bird market on Sunday morning was something to behold. Hundreds of bird sellers with all kinds of birds. One evening we wandered down the... More

Firstly very difficult to find information about the tour bus company anywhere. No information in either of the inner city train stations and no timetables on the stops. Managed to pick up a leaflet from the information centre with vague times. Was not clear that there were different pick up points for the blue and red routes so we ended... More

I've been on a few City Sightseeing HOHO buses and this one was the worst. First of all the headphones supplied were far too short to be able to sit in the front seat of the bus upstairs. You had to lean forward, almost on the edge of the seat - luckily we had our own on hand. In the... More

I've been on many CitySightseeing tours in many places but this was the worst. Poor buses, one we went on had such a low roof you couldn't stand up on the top deck. Another bus had about a dozen seats downstairs with few headphone points. Very few of the headphone points worked properly with little or no commentary available. When... More

I have found hop-on hop-off tours to be a great way of seeing a new city and this tour does meet all the essential requirements of showing you the major sites. However, it is not as polished as some of the other bus tours I have seen. The commentary is all recorded and the driver did a poor job of... More

I am a big supporter of city-sightseeing's hop on hop off tours, but I found it very difficult to feel that Brussels' tour was value for my money. Most of the stops on the routes were within walking distance of each other, which meant that the bus basically could have had only one stop in the city centre. Even though... More

You're in a city you don't know, don't really know what sights to see apart from the Mannekin Pis and the Grand Place and want to get out and about without the hassle of local public transport. So you get on a hop on hop off tour and have some commentary along the way. Okay it's a tourist trap and... More

Reduced timetable over winter Long delays between busses Lack of staff to support people with directions, this made drivers job awkward We were racing around stop to stop like Stirling Moss. Audio was only working on line 1 line 2 (English) was not. Length of headphones too short. Bus was filthy. On our way back to the hotel we passed... More

We've done "hop on, hop off" in many cities, and this was the first time we've been disappointed. Stops are poorly marked, the English commentary did not work on the first--thirty-minute portion, the buses were frequently behind schedule, and it seemed very expensive. In the winter, the buses stop running very early, so the 24-hour claim is misleading. The commentary... More
