Brussels Chocolate Walking Tour and Workshop

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great Experience - Would definitely do it again!
Other customers did not show up, so we got lucky and had a private tour. The tour guide, Marc, was awesome and extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of chocolate, as well as local history. His English is perfect. We had nice workshop. Then Marc took us to local stores where we had an opportunity to taste and buy fine chocolates. If you are in Brussels, this tour is definitely not to be missed!

Luxembourg Day Trip from Brussels: Two Countries in One Day

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Don't waste your day!
We went to Luxembourg for the day trip and were very disappointed. The tour guide was awful. He didn't provide any information, during the walking tour he was walking so fast, there was no opportunity to take a picture or just enjoy the view of the city. We spent 8 hours on the bus and 3 hours in Luxembourg with 50 min of free time. The whole trip was waste of time and money. Most of the other trips with Brussels City Tours are just as bad: majority of the tour guides are horrible, there is barely any free time during the trips, you can't enjoy the places you visit, and descriptions of the tours are not accurate.

Amsterdam Day Trip from Brussels

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The day trip to Amsterdam was ok. You spend 3-3.5 hrs on the bus to get to Amsterdam, spend 3.5 hours in Amsterdam and another 3 hours to get back - it was a very long day.The tour guide was decent, probably the best one we had with this tour company (Brussels City Tours).The visit to the cheese farm was very nice but we felt rushed to go back to the bus and barely had enough time to shop and buy cheese. In Amsterdam we had 2 hours of free time after canal boat ride.It just enough to walk around and grab something to eat. It is much better just to take a train to Amsterdam from Brussels and you will have a lot more time to explore this beautiful city.

Brussels Super Saver: Brussels Sightseeing Tour and Antwerp Half-Day Trip

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

Don't Waste Your Time And Money!
We did Brussels Sightseeing and Antwerp Half-Day Trip, and both tours were horrible. The guide for Brussels tour mumbled some information in 3 different languages. You spend almost all the time in the bus, and he just points the direction of important landmarks. On the tour to Antwerp the bus was completely full (50+ people), and the tour guide for Antwerp -again - was mumbling information in 3 languages. It was very difficult to follow him and to hear him outside the bus. The "free time" in Antwerp was 1 hour to walk around the Cathedral. If you need to use the restroom - good luck! The guide doesn't seem to care about it. In fact, he was really surprised when we asked him about the restroom 3 hours into the trip, and he continued to say something in 3 languages. The tour was very boring, not informative, poorly organized and the tour guide was awful. Tour was provided by Brussels City Tour company. Don't waste your time and money, try to do it with another tour company, or on your own.

My Review

Great Experience- Would definitely do it again!
Since other customers did not show up, we got lucky and had a private tour. The tour guide, Marc, was awesome and extremely knowledgeable about all kinds of beer, as well as local history. His English is perfect. Marc took us to local places off beaten path where we had an opportunity to taste fine real non-commercialized Belgium beers. He also gave us a lot of useful recommendations about local restaurants and bars. If you are in Brussels, this tour is definitely not to be missed!

Brussels Night Walking Tour: Gourmet Belgian Food

Brussels, Belgium

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Awesome Tour!
We did Gourmet Belgian Food tour and really enjoyed it. We had done similar tour in Barcelona but this one was much better and different. Our tour guide Marc (he is also the owner of this tour company) did a great job. He started the Tour in his apartment where traditional Belgian food was served, accompanied by good wines and beer.It was very nice atmosphere, you get a chance to talk to different people from other countries .At the end of the dinner Marc took us to traditional Belgian cafe for famous Belgian waffle. Marc is a great guide,very knowledgeable and has great sense of humor.Thank you Marc! This tour is a must if you want to eat Belgian food and get information about Belgian cuisine.

Wine and Cava Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The trip was nice,wineries are beautifull and we had very good tastings and learn a lot from tours of the wineries with the tour guides from each winery.The problem was that our tour guide in the bus barely spoke english and she didn't say much during the bus ride. But the biggest problem was that pick up point in the voucher was the last stop and we had to sit all the way in the back of the bus and I don't fell well on the bus. So the drive to the wineries (about 1.5 hour) was really bad. I will probably recommend this tour, but ask about first pick up stop,so you can get good sits on the bus.

Paris Pass

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Great way to see Paris on your own.Gives you opportunity to see major attractions and use unlimited public transportation in Paris.Make sure you take the river cruise which is included in the price of pass.Give your opportunity to relax and see the whole city in comfort of the water ship with commentary in different languages.If you have limited amount of time in Paris,the Paris pass is ideal way to get introduction to Beauty of Paris.

Paris Shuttle Arrival Transfer: Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG)

Paris, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The transfer is going to save you money ,but not time.When we arrived to Paris ,we had to call them from public phone in the airport and wait 30 minutes for driver to pick us up.Driver was not very pleasant and didn't help us with our luggage.It was a share van and luckily our hotel was the first one on his list,so he dropped us up first,and again no help with the luggage.It is worth to save money when you arrive to Paris,but service is not the best and you have to wait for them to pick you up,and it is not easy to find them when they tell you where to wait for them.
