I have utilized the City Sightseeing/Hop On-Hop Off busses in nearly 10 cities in Europe and the Brussels tour was the worst. The drivers of both tours were awful--alternating between pedal to the metal speeds and then slamming on the brakes, causing some to nearly slide out of their seats. I also witnesses pedestrians who were forced to run through... More

Me and my husband have recently used this tour company and have been extremely disappointed. We have been on my similar tours and have never been left stranded on the side of a road in the middle of nowhere before.. until Brussels. We had been dropped off at the Atomium stop on the Sunday morning and having checked the times... More

First, we used "City Sightseeing" in countless counties and cities, and this one was the absolute worst experience ever. It all started with some non existant indications (their web site is of no use what so ever) to find the bus stops. We finally found one stop on the red line after walking at least one km. We were ready... More

I have been robbed twice in Brussels metro and train stations recently. It's really not safe at all with highly professional gangs roving unseen, it would appear constantly. And I am very cautious with my personal belongings! So, walk my friends! Instead of taking-in that grotty underground tunnel scenery get to not the open air. I surprised myself and realised... More

We decided to do both the red and blue bus tour routes to get a feel and see most of the landmarks in our short stop over in Brussels. It was so disappointing. Why would a tour bus take you to the most dreary, run down, dirty parts of the city! The tour has left a very poor reflection of... More

The ticket includes both routes giving a good overview of Brussels and we enjoyed the ride.We did not have the problem of going too quickly through the route that others have mentioned. Did seem to have more time between buses than the schedule indicates. Look for discount coupons to save a little on the cost--our hotel had them, am sure... More

Went on the red line to see Brussels and didn't really like the commentary. Quite plain and boring. Was not impressed at all. In conclusion, wasn't worth 25 quid!

We took the Brussels City Sightseeing Tour last summer and on the whole were thoroughly disappointed with the quality and quantity of the service. The tour does bring you around to see the important parts of Brussels like the European Commission, the Atomium area, summer residence of the Belgian royal family etc. However, very little commentary was provided and that...

These two tours are a great way to see the city of Brussels, giving you a good idea of what you might want to spend more time doing. The north (Atomium) tour is the more interesting of the two and better for quick photos... although the drivers on both legs were racing on providing little opportunity. They were going so... More

The recorded narration was informative and the routes covered what I wanted to see, so the tour did what I wanted it to do. I have taken these tours in a number of cities, however, and Brussels was definitely not as well done as the others. The earbuds cord was so short that it was unusable (save your earbuds from...
