My husband and I had a great time. Via was an amazing guide. She was also very informative about the history and took us to all the hotspots and hidden gems. We even tried a local snack called spectaculoos. If you ever get a tour with Via, you will fall in love with the city.

Wonderful day in Brussels
Haylee_T, May 2022
Alessandra was a wonderful tour guide. Felt like we saw the whole city while we were there. Definitely not something we would have been able to do on our own. Appreciate Lokafy being able to set this up for us too as it was very last minute.

New friend in Brussels
Roslyn_C, Apr 2022
If I could give this more stars I would. David S met us at our hotel. After we told him where we had been the previous day he was able to adjust his plans and take us to different places. He was knowledgeable, good humored, well spoken, motivated and attentive to what we wanted. He paced the walking to our needs. We never would have seen the places he showed us on our own. Very comfortable tour. He even gave me suggestions for places in Amsterdam. Highly recommend this tour, and David S.

Day out with a new friend
LeslieM_K, Nov 2021
Rhahim was a wonderful guide. We drove around Brussels and he knew just what I wanted to see. It was nice of him to take me to the place where he and his wife were married. I wanted to see Mini Europe and we went - he for the first time!. It was just as if a friend and I had gone to see a place neither of us had been before.

We met Jacques, at the appointed time. he was extremely knowledgeable, and went through the history of Brussels, took us to downtown, the Grand Place, the Stock Exchange, the Royal Palace, the European Union Headquarters, and had a lovely lunch in uptown. We had a fabulous time with him!

seeeeehr große Entäuschung!!!!
Norbert_M, Dec 2021
der Tour Guide Tom ist nicht erschienen, aber das Geld wurde mir abgebucht... Ich hoffe nur, dass ich mein Geld wieder zurück erhalte Sehr, sehr entaüschend Sowohl der Tour Guide als auch der Veranstalter waren telefonisch nicht erreichbar 3 Stunden später hat sich der Tour Guide per Telefon gemeldet und von einem Missverständnis gesprochen, dabei hatte ich alle schriftlichen Bestätigungen
Response from Host, Feb 2022
Hallo Norbert, Wir möchten uns aufrichtig für Ihre Erfahrungen in Brüssel entschuldigen. Dies ist sicherlich nicht die Erfahrung, die wir uns für unsere Reisenden wünschen. Wir tun unser Bestes, um einen reibungslosen Ablauf der Reisebestätigung zu gewährleisten, aber es gibt bestimmte Aspekte des Prozesses, über die wir keine Kontrolle haben. Der Ihnen zugewiesene Lokafyer hat seine E-Mails nicht überprüft, um die E-Mail mit der Reisebestätigung zu sehen, die wir ihm geschickt hatten, obwohl er uns mitgeteilt hatte, dass er für die Durchführung der Reise zur Verfügung steht. Wie Sie sich vorstellen können, ist die Tatsache, dass der Lokafyer seine E-Mails nicht überprüft, ein Faktor, den wir von unserer Seite aus nicht kontrollieren können. Wir hatten uns sofort mit Viator in Verbindung gesetzt, um Ihnen eine volle Rückerstattung zu ermöglichen. Das ist wirklich schade, da wir uns so sehr auf Ihre Tour in Brüssel gefreut haben und Ihnen zeigen wollten, was Lokafy-Erlebnisse so wunderbar macht. Wir hoffen, dass Sie sich trauen, uns in Zukunft wieder zu besuchen - wir werden sicherstellen, dass wir Sie nur mit jemandem zusammenbringen, der Ihren Anforderungen entspricht, damit Sie wirklich erleben können, worum es bei Lokafy Touren geht. Wir sind in mehr als 300+ Städten auf der ganzen Welt aktiv und wir hoffen, dass wir wieder Touren für Sie organisieren können. Gute Reise. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Vinita Lokafy.com

Lokay hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, Reisende mit Einheimischen zusammenzubringen, die sich für ihre Städte begeistern, so dass die ganze Erfahrung so ist, als hätte man einen Freund, der einem die Stadt zeigt. Wir hoffen, dass die Reisenden unvergessliche Erinnerungen und eine bleibende Erfahrung mit nach Hause nehmen, und es ist schön zu hören, dass Sie beides erlebt haben. Lokafy bietet Stadtführungen in mehr als 300 Städten auf der ganzen Welt an, und unsere globale Gemeinschaft von Lokafyers spricht viele Sprachen.

Hallo Johannes, ich hoffe, es geht Ihnen gut. Wir entschuldigen uns dafür, dass es so lange gedauert hat, bis wir Ihnen geantwortet haben, aber wir wissen es zu schätzen, dass Sie diese wunderbare Bewertung hier mit uns teilen. Es freut uns sehr zu hören, dass Sie eine wunderbare Erfahrung mit unserem Lokafyer hatten.

Obwohl unsere Lokafyers keine professionellen Reiseleiter sind, sind einige von ihnen leidenschaftliche Geschichtsinteressierte, und das Einzigartige an unseren Touren ist, dass Sie die Reiseroute nach Ihren Wünschen und Ihrem Zeitplan gestalten können. Es ist toll, dass unser Lokafyer Ihnen verschiedene Orte in der Stadt zeigen konnte und Ihren Aufenthalt in der Stadt unvergesslich gemacht hat.
