What You Can Expect
Find the missing Zodiac sign on a building, and explore the history of the Freemasons in Brussels. Visit the grave of a Freemason at St Michael Cathedral, and look for signs of their legends and traditions in the colorful church windows.
Then, follow your knowledgeable guide uptown to the park across from Coudenberg, the former royal palace, where you’ll discover the meaning of hidden inscriptions. Learn about the underground city below the palace, and get to know the founder of the Templars, Godfried of Bouillon.
At the end of your tour, visit the bar where Rene Magritte, a famous Walloon painter, got his ideas and discussed his vision of art. Your walking tour will have made you thirsty, so relax at one of Magritte's favorite tables and enjoy a refreshing Belgium beer or soft drink.
Jan Swerts is a great guide.
We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour of Brussels and saw lots more than we ever expected to. We had been on a three-hour bus tour the day before and had seen most of the major spots (from the bus) but Marc took us to some places that most tourists (and many locals) never get to see. It was informative and interesting. It was also a great chance to revisit places that we hadn't stopped at on the bus tour. We opted for a coffee instead of a beer and Marc's choice of cafe was great. His recommendation of the best place to buy Belgian chocolates was backed up with a taste of the very best chocolate ever... we even found our way back there afterwards to indulge in a small bag to take home. Well done Marc... great tour!
