Tour was good but could have been better without the visit to the Parlamentarium - perhaps offer a second choice instead of insisting everyone go there. Museums are nice but I would prefer seeing the sights of the city and experiencing its flavor - Brussels and Belgium in general are known for waffles, chocolate and beer and it would have been nice to include one of these stops on the tour...also dissapointed that we could not stop to get a picture of the Royal Palace - buses are not allowed to stop there but as a suggestion, perhaps park a block away and let us walk there to view it instead? Walking tour of Grand Place at start of tour was nice. Difficult listening to guide speak 3 different languages...tours should be broken up into languages or at least 2 at the most....Also would have liked to have had more photo stops - only one of the Atomium and that was from a distance away. Bus did not even slow down enough to get pictures of other sights such as the beautiful Japanese Gardens.

Great tour! We started on time with 2 other couples at the Godiva Shop on the Grand Square and really saw as much of the highlights of Brussels as you could see in 4 hours. Not only did our tour guide take us through the numerous fabulous chocolate shops, we got a sense of history of Brussels and its famous landmarks (the Manneken-Pis, the Royal Palace, City Hall, etc) as we walked from one shop to another. Making our own chocolate at the Cote d'Or was very fun. The chocolate maker there was quite entertaining. We all had a chance to make our own choc creations and afterwards had some yum hot chocolate. The walking was pretty vigorous up and down hills. My only wish is that I'd had more opportunity to buy chocolate - we went back to a few shops afterwards. Highly recommend.
