We had had Avo as a tour guide just two days before on a different tour, so we knew we were going to have a good guide. There were just the three of us in the group, so it was truly a private tour experience. If you are into Dan Brown style of mysteries, this is definitely worth your time. Avo has done a lot of personal research on many of mysteries hidden in plain sight in Brussels, but it was really interesting to have things pointed out to us that we hadn't noticed, like the Camino de Santiago. Definitely worth doing!

Jan Swerts is a great guide.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour of Brussels and saw lots more than we ever expected to. We had been on a three-hour bus tour the day before and had seen most of the major spots (from the bus) but Marc took us to some places that most tourists (and many locals) never get to see. It was informative and interesting. It was also a great chance to revisit places that we hadn't stopped at on the bus tour. We opted for a coffee instead of a beer and Marc's choice of cafe was great. His recommendation of the best place to buy Belgian chocolates was backed up with a taste of the very best chocolate ever... we even found our way back there afterwards to indulge in a small bag to take home. Well done Marc... great tour!

There was very little mysterious or legendary, but the tour was a nice walk through Brussels.

Private 1/2 day walking tour around Brussels. Tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable but I don't think it was worth the money.
