“Rob is the king of Brussels”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We had a train connection in Brussels and decided to spend the day by taking the free tour, which we already know from other cities.
It was the best decision we could have made, and the best way of getting to know the city.
Robbert really knows the city and you can really tell he is passionate about it. During 3 hours he was able to show us the main places and also recommended us whit typicall Belgian food and drinks.
If you go to Brussels, it is a MUST!

“Amazing Free Tour!”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

When had a 12 hour connection between flights in Brussels and we decided to go to town and take the tour. This was the best decision we could have made for spending time in Brussels!
The tour was amazing! This was a free 3-hours long (!) tour that covered all the right places to see in Brussels! This tour is a must when visiting Brussels (as all SANDEMANs NEW Europe tour in other cities).
Our tour guide was PJ (Pieter-Jan) and he was an amazing tour guide!! Funny, interesting, knowledgeable and very friendly. He is a local Belgian which gave us a special, young and an insider perspective of Belgium. He covered all the main places and even taught us the entire history of Belgium.
Bottom line: Highly recommended! Do not miss!

“An excellent way to start a visit to Brussels”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We visited Brussels in September 2013 and picked up a brochure for the free guided walking tour at the visitor information centre. It looked great so we decided to try it and that was the best decision we ever made. Robbert was so passionate about the city and its history and really made it come alive. He was also happy to pose for a photo with our travelling buddy Justin Beaver, who will be posting a story about the walk soon. We will definitely be on the lookout for Sandeman tours on our next overseas trip.

“PJ!!!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

You must take a tour with PJ! His love of history is obvious, imparted at every turn. Our group was large but I felt very comfortable asking questions. I always think of everything in Europe as so old, which made the history lesson that he gave us (and I loved!) so fascinating since Belgium is only about 200 years old. He really made me look at Brussels/Belgium in a different light - he was right on that most of us were just passing through - which is the gift he gave all of us on the tour.
I didn't see mention on their web site that they do a daily beer tours at 5pm from Scott's Bar, so be sure to check into that if you're interested.

“You must do this tour!!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I was only in Brussels for a day and a half - my first time there and traveling solo - and this was by far the best intro to the city I could have hoped for. Our guide, PJ, did an awesome job with making the tour both informative (passionately inspired by his local knowledge of his hometown) and really entertaining. Highly recommended!
I also did the beer tour that evening which was great. Learned heaps about local styles of beer and its history. Most of us ended up staying out afterwards to try more of the beers we'd heard about and had a fun night!
