Big disappointment
Kavitha S
, Aug 2019
The tour was supposed to include visit to chocolate factory and chocolate tasting but didn't happen. Tour guide spoke mostly in Spanish. Also the guide Bruno asked me where I am from in a rude way. When I said India he said " you should be proud that you are from India". Sarcasm or racism ? If the tour operator has a problem with Indians they should make it clear beforehand so we don't book this tour. There were no stops other than atomium for photos. On the whole was not as expected. I have been on various viator tours in UK which were really well conducted. Hope this one improves.

Really good half day tour with a little walking tour at the beginning before we joined the coach. Bruno, our guide, was lovely and knowledgeable. Also our thanks to the driver from Romania whose name I've forgotten.

This was a simple, half-day overview of some of the city's main sites. Good for seeing the highlights, but would have been much better with an engaged guide.

This tour was very interesting and great way to get to know the city. the only issue was that it was extremely hard to hear the tour guide and she had to repeat everything 3 times once in English, once in French, once in Spanish...we went during the flower festival and it was very crowded so very hard to hear what was being said. I would suggest passing out those headphones to everyone on the tour so that we could hear what the guide was saying. Even with these issue, the tour guide was amazing...so nice and friendly and very knowledgeable.

Multi-lingual was a little confusing

The tour was wasn't bad, but I had two main issues: 1- the group was slightly larger than I expected, so hearing the guide was a challenge 2- the tour guide was delivering the tour in 3 languages, so a lot of time was wasted for translations, let alone the confusion of shifting from one language to another as the story would lose a lot of its value when it is being told in chunks.

The problem with this tour was the bad guide named Frank who was mostly unintelligible,although very well informed.The places shown are better seen individually.It is a tour of two and a half hours and seems to be waste of money.The palace was shown as a drive by without any stoppage..

Great overview of Brussels. Really good for the first day of the first visit. If you've been before or done other tours, I might skip this one.
