What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Brussels Day Trip from Amsterdam

Take a photo at the Atomium in central Brussels

Meet your driver-guide at your centrally located Amsterdam hotel, and then hop aboard a private, air-conditioned vehicle and embark on the 2.5-hour drive south. Enjoy scenic views of the Belgian countryside before arriving in the lovely city of Brussels, the capital of Belgium.

After a photo stop at the iconic Atomium, set off on a 1-hour panoramic tour of Brussels’ main attractions. Throughout the tour, listen as your private driver-guide points out the sights while teaching you about Brussels’ important role in the European Union. Discover, too, how it is a ‘melting pot’ of culture, character, language, history and architecture. You'll also see the National Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Koekelberg, the Japanese Tower, Chinese Pavilion and the Royal Palace of Brussels, which is the official palace of the King and Queen of the Belgians.

Following your tour, make the most of 3.5 hours of free time to explore Brussels at your own leisure and expense. Perhaps go shopping for souvenirs, savor more Belgian chocolates, sip Belgian beer at a lively pub, or take a stroll around the historical town center.

After your free time, return to your private vehicle and relax on the journey back to Amsterdam, arriving in the evening. On route, pass through Brussels' European neighborhood district and hear how the Belgian capital serves as the headquarters of many European institutions, including the European Commission and NATO.

This tour was amazing!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Excellent tour! Very informative, no time was wasted, good driver, nice guide, bus in good shape and clean. Well worth the money. Take this tour if you want to explore other cities (not just Amsterdam) during your trip. The time in Brussels was long enough and the drive was comfortable.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

An excellent and very well planned day tour. The small group allows for a personalised tour and the sights visited are amazing. Our guide was informative, knowledgable and very friendly. An outstanding day which we would highly recommend to others.

hillarious tour from Amsterdam to Brussels.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Great Day trip to Brussels, really enjoyed myself. the tour was supposed to be in English only.
But was also translated into Spanish. I would have preferred an English only tour, since that is what I booked. The Spanish translation seem to last 3 times the English commentary and made it drag on and on.. Next time I book a tour and is say English only, I hope it is just that.

A great tour for a quick insight into Belgium. We traveled by road and had a very good guide who kept us in great spirits throughout the journey. The historical insights into Brussels and the Mannekin Pis tour (with the chocolates too) was great.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

The driver was punctual, courteous and very informative. The staff was very efficient. Brussels is a beautiful city for history, architecture and shopping. Belgian chocolate is fantastic and lives up to its reputation. 6hrs there is too short, maybe 8-10 hours.
