Jamil picked us up ON our 'tulips' cruise ship, at port of Antwerp. Took us round in his slightly uncomfortable but fun van and we didn't have to walk too much - given that much of Antwerp is given over to walking precincts! He is a mine of information and showed us some unusual and interesting bits, including the Jewish part and the up-market residential areas; hopefully we contributed something to his knowledge too! I wanted a Belgian waffle but unfortunately none was available, so we had a pleasant lunch-time snack in a cafe. (a 'cafe' in Antwerp actually serves only drinks, but for us it was a cafe!) Jamil (he's French-speaking from Beirut, originally) was really helpful. He took us and our baggage to Antwerp's little airport for the pain-free flight back to London's City Airport - so much better journey than to/from big airports - and we economised on taxi journeys while having a nice day's outing. Thanks Jamil.

Dear Joan, The little bus is from 1963 so seats are a bit less comfortable as a car from 2018. Hope anyway you liked the oldschool vibe of the bus. For sure your information is great value for me. Next time you visit Belgium for sure not forget Brussel Waffle. Also good to hear you had a safe flight from Antwerp to London Have a great summer.

We made a private tour with two stops. Jamil is a really great guide and a nice person. And the old car has a great atmosphere. Thanks to this tour, we saw and experienced the city in a very diverse way. I can recommend this very much to anyone visiting Antwerp.

Jamil, our local guide, took us all around Antwerp in a very cool/stylish van. He is very knowledgeable and could answer any questions we had. We toured the Jewish area of the city, Belle Epoque, went through the city (many places), and then took a visit down to the Old and New Ports. We learned a lot of interesting details and nuances of the architecture, way of life, history, and interactions of the Jewish community in Antwerp. In the Belle Epoque we also got to learn about how the history shaped up the place, and how it is today. At the Old Port we got to see a cool abandoned grain factory and feel what it must've been like back in the old days of the docks. It was an unorthodox experience that was amazing, we won't have been able to see or learn as much as we did had we done another tour. Jamil was very flexible with timings, and picked us and dropped us of at our specified locations. I highly recommend this tour for anyone in Antwerp, it is awesome and off the beaten path!

Me and my friends visited Antwerps for a day a couple of weeks ago. I have lived there for a few years and thought I knew the city well. But seeing the city in the van of Jamil is like seeing it for the first time. He took us to places I didn't see before and to places I did but tells incredible stories and points out these beautiful details that I never noticed before.
We had so much fun and learnt many things about the city and her history. Jamil is so passionate about Antwerps and you cannot help but get infected with his lovebug for the city!
If you go to Antwerps please book a trip with Voyage Local, it's the cherry on the cake!

My husband and I had a 90 minute private tour with Jamil. It was a great introduction to Antwerp as we were just visiting for two days. We were staying in a hotel in the centre of town, so it was really helpful to drive around to see some of the surrounding neighbourhoods and the diversity of Antwerp. Jamil knew lots about the history and pointed out various interesting architectural highlights.

Jami our guide Was very Knowledgeable friendly and accommodating
We would have never had opportunity to see the Jewish area the art deco area and learn history as well as with him The water and cookies fron Antwerp was a very nice touch he stop the van ( the van Volkswagen was a fun way to tour) he stop when we ask and let us walk around a little bit which was a very nice !!he dropped us off at the red star museum which was very accommodating
I would highly Recommend this tour ( it would have been perfect if we didn't get lost look for the location to meet since we have never been here ) maybe a more center location would help !!!

The tour and history of the neiborhoods was very interesting but I had asked for a mixed tour to see some of the popular attractions as well. But that didn’t happen. I was dropped off in a parking lot and had no idea how to get back to the train station where I had been picked up. This is my first time in Antwerp and I got seriously lost going back to the hotel. Not worth 100 euros.

The guide (Jamil) was very accommodating and it was a nice surprise when we were provided extras such as water and Antwerp cookies. This was a great way to see parts of Antwerp that we never would have discovered. The guide was very knowledgeable and very patient with our questions. The 30hp van was awesome. It moved at a perfect pace so that we could take in the neighbourhoods without feeling rushed and we could stop anywhere we wanted if we wanted pictures. I wish there was a Jamil in every European city we visited.
