The blue route is far better than the red route. Buses aren't air conditioned so it's very uncomfortable during the summer. You don't get a tour guide, just a pair of earphones and a recorded tour. I prefer to have a tour guide to get the best out of your tour!

We met the bus just outside the main train station and the 1st problem was the fact that they only accept prepaid tickets or cash. No cards. Not much to see and the audio was out of sync with the route we travelled on. We decided to hop off at the Atomium but when we wanted ti get onto the... More

Travelled with my family to Brussels for a day trip on 04.07.2016 and thought of using Hop on hop off bus tour. Only option available was by City Sightseeing Brussels. It was a bad experience to start with. We boarded the bus (Red Line) at Central Station in front of the Cathedral at 11.15 am. But the bus did not... More

This is a cost effective way to see and plan what you want to do or come back to see. We always do the city bus tours in what ever city we visit. KEEP YOUR TICKET. It seems that you will get a 10% discount off your next tour where ever you are in the world. There are 2 routes... More

I usually enjoy getting a city overview from a hop on hop off bus tour, but not here in Brussels. As others have mentioned, the busses do not follow the posted time schedule and many of the earphone jacks don't work. In many seats the length of the cord on the earphone jack actually did not reach the jack itself,... More

Irresponsibly the bus did not turn up on Monday from 13:30 to 16:45 although it should be every 30 minutes!! Many people were waiting on the heavy rain and driver was so rude.

We were waiting from 13:20 to 14:35!! In the heavy shower, We ended up a group of almost 20 people! Some people were very angry... More

We were lucky and had a stop just along from our hotel. So we did the Blue route in the morning had a walk around a bit of lunch then the red route in the afternoon. It gives you a good brush stroke of the city and certainly highlighted places you would go and visit and spend a bit more... More
