We were really looking forward to this tour and experiencing this new city with a local. Instead we got Yana, who had been living in the city for a few years, but didn't seem to have fully immersed herself in its culture just yet. I had provided some direction on the top tourist sites I would like to see, but then also said we'd like to see non-tourist areas/sites. Yana was unprepared and didn't have an agenda to follow. She got lost trying to find the Pis statues, and almost seemed to think it was ridiculous these were things we'd want to see. She gave no context or history to anything Grand Place, the guilds, Sablon, etc. as we walked, opting instead for awkward silences or personal anecdotes. The last hour really dragged on, as she toured us around a neighborhood to show us houses... without any explanation. We ended our tour 40 minutes from our hotel which she mentioned was conveniently located to her own flat. The only saving grace is that we ended near Maison Antoine, which she fortunately pointed out as an iconic place for frites but almost as an afterthought.
