We where a party of 2 male friends who had booked a 4 night stay in Brussels and had pre booked a half day Antwerp trip last November with Viator, as it was a little out of season there were only 12 people on the coach.
We joined the coach and set off to Antwerp the tour guide was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humour as did the coach driver. We would highly recommend this trip.
In addition to this we made our own way to visit Waterloo and as this being out of season we were unable to do a guided tour so we did it by way of Bus and Taxi and had a very good day out but would recommend this trip to be by way of Viator.
We also squeezed in a trip to Leuven by train and visited the Stella Artois Brewery, and had a very good trip.
To end this review we would thoroughly recommend Viator.

Our guide, Johan, was the best! The trip was excellent. Johan loves his job and explains everything with patience and interest. He makes funny jokes and he waits for everyone in order to give details about the sight. Great character! Also the city is very beautiful, totally worth it! If i ever go back to Belgium, Antwerp will be a must see.

The best of five tours we took with this company. Mostly because the guide was enthusiastic and loved the city. Had an adequate amount of time to walk through the old city, but as with all beautiful old cities, not nearly enough time to see everything. Very underrated city. In my opinion equal to or better than anything else in Belgium.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

So much to see and appreciate in one day: the Market Square surrounded by century-old buildings Cathedral of our Lady, peppered with medieval paintings such as Rubens and not to be missed Sint Paulus Monastery where you find more medieval paintings done by masters the old-town tour and finally the Antwerp Train Station, combining elegance of both old and new architecture. Soak everthing you see, it's worth your time.
