I got line 2 this morning at 10.00, by the central station and sat on until the European Parliament. I then caught the bus to the art nouveau stop. The commentary didn't seem to work on this bus. After going to the victor Horta museum, I arrived 20 mins early and waited for the last bus at 16.17. The arrived... More

With 2 Routes, and a 48 hour ticket offering it's the only way to get a good overall glimpse and feel for Brussels if over for a weekend. With primary departures just beside the Central Station they're convenient, but note that the Line 2 stop is around the corner from Line 1!

Love these hop on/hop off bus tours. Very friendly driver did his best English chatter with us. The buses we were on were slightly worse for wear possibly due to some of the over hanging branches on the route. The audio was not great as the headphone jacks had seen better days. Would not stop me using another one. Take... More

In my opinion the city sightseeing bus is the only way to view the city as it is so big it would be impossible to walk round. Two different lines so you can choose what you would prefer or do both!

Went on the hop on hop off bus on Saturday 23 Aug. took the bus at Central station. The seats upstairs were wet after rain moment, we asked the driver of bus no. 145 if he might have a towel to dry it for the other passengers/ tourists so they can sit as well. The driver was just not bothered... More

We usually take these 'hop on, hop off' tours but were disappointed with this service for a number of reasons. With the exception of a couple the drivers were generally surly and on one occasion dropped off at a stop that was not official so when we went to 'hop on' again had to go looking for the correct stop....

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
