Nice, most of the tour is from the bus only. A very good start for tourists that plan to stay a few days in Brussels, they can just follow the route a day after, as the route itself is a very good overview of what Brussels has to offer. Would recommend!

This was an interesting tour that took in a variety of interesting places in Brussels. It allowed us then to choose which bits to see in our limited time.

The quality of this trip is high, the guide is knowledgeable and friendly and the coach is comfortable and air conditioned, you will get to see most of the main sights and hear an interesting commentary. I found the chocolate presentation a bit boring but other sights such as the anatomium were spectacular. This is a really good way to see the city. There isn't a lot to see in Brussels so this is a great way to condense it all into an afternoon. Good value for money.

Our Half-Day City Tour of Brussels was delightful--great deal for the price. Our tour guide, Bruno, was very knowledgeable and made our tour fun, as well as interesting. The chocolate demo was a nice touch, too, as I understand it is not easy to obtain group entry into such establishments these days.

The chocolate tour was fantastic! I learned a lot about making chocolates. The bus tour was okay. We only got out for couple of times with 5-10min, and staying on the bus, I couldn't catch many "shots" with my camera. I would take more extensive tour next time. It was too short, and seemed like we were running in circles. The tour picked me up at the hotel, but didn't drop me off. It makes sense that it was faster to walk back than get on the bus in the traffic, but they should say that in the beginning. Luckily, the drop off is in the busy plaza, and you have plenty to do. I wish they took us where the "peeing boy" was if it was so close.

An interesting half-day tour of Brussels, with a knowledgeable tour guide. In the group were tourists who spoke different languages, so he had to translate everything - a bit annoying, but you get used to it. The Grand Place was fabulous - very eye-catching architecture. The atomium structure was a sight to behold. Downtown Brussels has some pretty steel and glass buildings that I particularly liked. The only real draw back to the trip was that there aren't that many tourist attractions in Brussels to speak of. It is probably best used as a base from which to explore other regions in Belgium, the Netherlands or Luxembourg.

Good guided tour. Good information, we were taken to the most relevant places, we were given an explanation in the chocolate factory that was good although the man that was to give us the information didnt speak spanish.

Tour was good however it would be better if they had stopped the bus at a couple places and given us some time to spent to take some pictures.The only place we got out of the bus was the Atomium.

Chocolate presentation was interesting, but the chocolates offered for sale were VERY expensive. Tour of city: would have preferred more of the walking tour--it was short but that could have been due to the starting rain; not sure. Only other complaint: would have been nice to have time at the Atomium; we only viewed it from the distance. Hotel pickup and drop-off was very appreciated. All in all a recommended tour.
