Great tour! We covered all the hot spots. The Parliamentarian, which is the area of the European Union open to the public for education purposes was amazing. I took some people there the next day! This is a great tour to get a sense of where everything is, and then return to your favorite spots if you need more time. As well, we went to the Atomium, which is a bit of a drive, so I don't believe, I would have made it to this important landmark if I had not gone on the tour.
Excellent way to see a city when spending few days in it. The tour guide was magnificent because of his knowledge and kindness.
We do a lot of short city breaks in various European cities and always book tours but i think the Brussels tour was the most enjoyable and interesting tour we have been on. Really really enjoyed it, thank you very much. The female guide was outstanding.
Very handy to do if its your first time in brussels as it enables you to get your bearings plus some history of brussels.
As a bonus you also see a very interesting exhibition at the european parliament.
This is the perfect introduction to Brussels. Our tour guide, Stefan, was knowledgable, entertaining and funny. Despite the fact he had to translate into three languages we never felt he favoured any one language. The tour is part walking and part via coach with the opportunity to visit the Parlimentarium (although there is limited time here). We felt this tour introduced us to parts of Brussels which we may have missed if we hadn't done the tour. I would highly recommend this tour, especially for those who are visitng Brussels for the first time.
I would have liked it more if the audio included the government structure of Brussels, historically and currently. The EU Parliament Center was nice but I lost it with so much information.
The tour completely served its purpose, compact timeframe, efficiently run, great price. Guide was just kind of "blah".
Wonderful. Garrett was a great guide. I liked this tour a lot. It never got boring.
It was very nice tour....great way to save time and experience the whole city in a short amount of time :)
a little rushed in parts but overall was good---the EU Parliament was very interesting.

The tour was very good however our guide was not what one would expect on a guided tour. He took every advantage to have a cigeratte while walking with us we found most of the group stayed away from him to avoid the smoke. When he collected us from the EU building he smelt of drink and smoke. He knew his history and had good information but these issues should be address with him
I was hoping to go into the parliament, but we only went to the visitor centre, and that was only for a short time at the end of the tour. The tour guide smoked and talked on his phone during the tour so I was not very impressed with this tour at all.
The guide Jasmine was an excellent lady. However we were left at the Europe Parliament though we were there at exit sharp at 5pm...called up the Brussels City Tour office but they were closed...we struggled our way to return to our Hotel..
Group was too large to hear well and visit to the Parlimentarium was too short to be worthwhile. The bus was nice, but all the speakers were not working well.
Tour guide spoke in 4 different languages and didn't give our much information. The visit to the European Parliament visitors' center was underwhelming.
we would not mind if you offerred deeper tour, we want to get off the bus and see more instead of just sitting in the bus and passed by.
This is a nice Intro to what the city has to offer, but not what I had expected. Most of the tour is on the bus. You don't get a chance to stop and see places except the Atomium and the parliamentarium. The bus stops for just 5 minutes at the Atomium and very far away from it. The parliamentarium was a big letdown for me as It was just an exhibition of photos and events of the last 70 odd years in Europe. Brussels is a city that needs to be explored on foot and can be easily done. I would recommend the "Brussels Half-Day City Tour" or the "Hop-on Hop-off tour" instead.
