We took two day trips they offer: Luxembourg and Amsterdam. These were the two WORST tours that we took in our Europe trip. Simply put it, you're much, MUCH better off traveling to the cities by yourself than with their "guides". The two guides that we had in the different trips were incredibly unprofessional and never gave an explanation of... More

My family and I did the half day city tour with chocolate tour. Meeting place was at the Brussels City Tours office near Grand Place, not difficult to find. The guide met with us and walked us through Grand Place, Agora Square and up to our bus parked near central station. The bus drove us through most of the city,... More

I took the Ghent and Brugges tour offered by Brussels City tours. The meeting place, near the Grand Place, was easy enough to find. At the designated time, you are led to you bus, which holds about 55 people. Ear phones were provided as pre-recorded commentary was played on the drive. Our driver (I think his name was Frank), provided... More

I researched the Brussels hop on &, hop off tour bus before my holiday. Sounded good but once there, the bus took us around lots of buildings & I missed the sights I wanted. The palace was just like Buckingham palace & was impressive. 11am -4pm doesn't give you a lot of time to explore. I do not recommend this... More

We had a good experience although it was a long day. We had slow start which was aggravating and then walked back to the central station to get the bus. It was a very hot day but we had a good guide unlike some other posters. We started with Ghent and then went to Bruges where we had lunch before... More

My wife and I recently did the two tours of Brussels. The only two things we saw of interest were The Atomium and the Basilica, both on the first tour. The second tour was a boring waste of time. They say it is hop on and hop off but if you get off, it is hard to get back on... More

Dear All, I am Stephan the guide whom Ms Powers calls a 'jerk' in her review. Using this kind of vacabulary of course is no sign of an objective opinion. It is a pity Tripadvisor has become the place where people ventilate their discontent only. Where is the voice of the hundreds of people that are satisfied and happy after... More

I travelled with Brussels City Tours to Bruge and Ghent. Just dont even waste your time with this very unprofessional company. Ive travelled to over 15 countries ALONE in the last two years and normally dont do organized tours because I like to explore on my own, but I had very little time in Belgium so I booked this tour...

The bus drivers were not helpful. Asked if we could tour Palace Royale. Yes yes of course, wrong! Headphones only reached if you were shorter than 5'6. Good thing I had my own headphones. Invest in a better tour.

This is the last bus tour we will ever take. With a price point of 200 Euro for my wife and I, we frankly expected more. Oversold with two buses totaling 50+ in two groups. Hard to hear the guide who had to translate into three languages due to the size of the group. Ghent is a charming city and... More
