Informative

We found the red route more informative than the blue route but enjoyed both. Buses were only every 30 mins so a bit of a wait in very hot weather.

So we take this bus, go down to see museums, grand place with flower carpet, manneken pis, cathedral of st. Michael, atomium etc. We... More

With little time I had in Brussels, the best way to go around the city was by taking the trip of city sightseeing bus. It has 2 lines red and blue with the same price. The audio guide was amazing and I knew lot of information about the city.

I enjoyed this your because it tells you everything there is to know about the famous places of the city and allows you to get off the bus to explore and get back on whenever you wish. Super handy!

We hurtled round the circuit with the driver accelerating hard and breaking heavily. The 75min circuit tour took less than 60mins - the most annoying aspect was the pre-recorded guide was frequently cut-off before completing by our arrival at the next stage. A real shame because the commentary was interesting, but we rarely heard the end of each section and... More

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
