We were 13 friends from trier and organise this tour to have another view of Bruxelles . They adviced us to go in the Maroles. The guide was excellent and show us this part of Bx with a communicative enthusiasm. Excellent experience Thanks for this

Given the number of Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels, tour was a bit slim. Did see a few to include a couple of interiors but not the eye candy found in books available. Think twice about booking as only one interior not available on your...More
