We booked with bravo and they did not show up or send a message. (Received an email asking to rate our experience!) The French speaking tour guide let us know that the tour we had booked was not going ahead. We had no time to book another. Disappointing.

James our guide was tremendous. His knowledge was immense & he made the whole tour fun. Also stopped off at various establishments where we sampled waffles, frites & chocolates. Gave in depth information in a ‘beer shop’ but alas no free samples this time! A ‘Free’ tour not to be missed.
