We joined the free tour with Peter. All the family, including 3 kids (18, 15, 9). We strongly recommend and will definitely join more such tours. Peter was nice, knowledgeable, interesting most of the times, gave us nice tips. We learned a lot.

Enjoyed the tour with James, very knowledgeable and helped facilitate a greater insight into Belgium with a side of humour... past rulers, stories of battles, historical sites, the making of its culture, current involvement in the UN. Ended the tour feeling appreciative of Brussels, as I had flown in with very little expectations. An afternoon well-spent!

I really hate to give this tour such a low rating, but it is warranted. The tour itself covers a lot of the area and is a great way to see the city. The problem was with our guide. To be a tour guide you have to have confidence, be able to project yourself and keep track of your group. Our tour guide was very short, she walked very fast and didn't do a very good job of keeping track of our group. She spoke very softly and in the busy streets of Brussels you can't really hear a soft spoken person unless you're next to them. She was very knowledgeable, but unless you were standing directly next to her, you probably missed a lot of what she said.

Hi Firestar,

I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your tour. Hopefully the points you raise about her keeping better track of her group, and speaking a little more clearly will help her to grow as a tour guide. We're glad you like the route of the tour, and the general topics it covers though, and will continue to work closely with the guide team in Brussels to incorporate your feedback into future tours.

Best
Mark, Sandemans
