Had a great time on the tour despite being a rainy day! The guide was very informative and the travelogue on the coach also pointed out the buildings that were of interest. The visit to the chocolatier was wonderful as we were shown how the chocolate was 'tempered' before being put into the shapes that were being made. Having a 'taster' of the chocolate after that was really good. Altogether a good value for money trip.

This was a well run tour. On time, nice coach and good guide. If you only have a day or so to see Brussels this is the tour to take. You won't see it all but you'll get a nice overview.
