The best way to see the city
Oct 2019
The best decision ever! We only had 2 full days in Brussels and with so much to see and so little time the hop on hop off took us to main city points. The service was excellent. No flaws.

Great way to get around and discover new things!
Jul 2019
We only had a day and a half in Brussels so I thought this would be a good way to get an overview of places.... and it was! We hopped off at a couple places we had never heard of and enjoyed them and also god a nice "drive by" of some other places. Easy to find and get back on and get back to where you started.

Not on time: Disappointed
Feb 2020 • Family
We travelled as a family of four and was so disappointed with the times. The bus times are so unreliable. Dropped off at the Atonium just for the pics and had to wait for more than 1hr20 min for the next one. It was so cold and everyone waiting was so mad about the times. As a result we only did the blue route as there was not enough time to go on the red route. Had to take a taxi the following day to visit the European parliaments on the red route

Rip off!
We always use a 'hop on hop off' in most cities we've visited.
Sounded good for 24/48 hour service. However the buses started at 10:00 am and finished at 2:30. = 4:30 hours.
If you wanted to stop off at a couple of place en route, there wasn't enough time.
Very disappointed. I appreciate that February isn't high season, however the bus was full. Should be a cheaper rate for shorter hours

Misleading and unsatisfactory
Feb 2020
I've used Hop-On Hop-Off in many other cities so was very disappointed to find that the Brussels version doesn't come up to scratch.
I bought tickets online the day before we wanted to use the bus for the first time. We got there at 10am and were told we needed a paper ticket. There were no City Sightseeing Reps in evidence. The driver didn't speak English and I couldn't speak his language. He let us board but later, when we got off, he told us we'd not be able to get back on without a paper ticket. This meant that our first day was more or less wasted. I emailed the address on the website but only heard back from them after my return home.
On the second day I did find a Rep to talk to, who insisted that our experience 'could not have happened'. There was no hint that perhaps a mistake had been made. Once I showed her my phone booking she issued us with a paper ticket. At this stage someone else confirmed witnessing the conversation we'd had the day before.
There was no question of any apology.
It was also not clear on the website what a reduced service was operating in February. 10am to 2.30pm for a city the size of Brussels is not really good enough.

If you have guests from abroad, these buses are good options to discover the city in one day. If the weather is nice it is much more attractive. Do not forget your coat if you try it in winter. The inside is always cold.

Worst experience we’ve had on these world wide
Jan 2020 • Family
This was the poorest experience we have had anywhere in the world on these tours and we’ve been to over 20 countries and used these in all that have them.

It began with the bus driver and his attitude was arrogant despite us grappling with the language and a toddler. He let us purchase tickets at 12.30pm knowing the bus tours advertise until 4pm so we thought it would be still decent value if we got two lines in before it shut down for the day.

Half way through the tour of one line we ask about another line and he informs us it shuts at 2.30pm.

We then go to get off (he stated the tour we did was 1hr 20mins - it was much longer and we ended up back at the end point just after 2.30pm and unable to to get more seen for the day - €50 or $82 AUD well spent on one pathetic tour. Would have been cheaper and more pleasant to hire a cab around the city.

When we asked the bus driver he just said “you have to come back tomorrow bye now”. Easier said than done when you have a toddler and a train to catch to Bruges to a ferry back to the UK.

I get we didn’t give ourselves a lot of time but to not be able to squeeze two tours in 3.5hrs is a bit poor on their part when we planned it around their advertised times and to have it cut short by 1.5hrs and then have our adjoining bus leave on time even though our line was running over 20mins late is average at best

Not much exciting
Dec 2019 • Friends
We have experienced this hop on/ hop off in Berlin and Paris. Here in Brussels, it’s not much exciting like these two cities. Anyway, thanks to a nice ride on bus as it’s raining outside on that day and we were not wet!

Poor working hours
Dec 2019 • Couples
The first bus departs 10am and they close 6pm. That doesn’t leave enough time for hopping on and hopping off during the trip for any sightseeing. You will have to stay on the bus if you intend to ride on both the blue line and red line in one day. The starting time should be much earlier and the tour should run through the night.

Good tour of Brussels
Nov 2019
Very useful for seeing a lot of Brussels in a short space of time. A good audio guide throughout the journey. The only downfall is when we went, they have changed the timetables, but the ones on all the bus stops and online were out of date.

Brussels visit
First of all, you can’t just hop on one bus. They randomly end and you have to go get in line to board another bus.

Probably overpriced
You can buy your ticket on line in advance which does save a few euros otherwise it is an expensive ‘bus ticket’. T
