Maria was super good and this tour was super interesting. Brussels has a lot to see other than the typical tourist spots. Glad that I made this tour.

Contenuto del tour molto interessante, così come i luoghi visitati. Un peccato sia stato più lungo del previsto e abbiamo dovuto interrompere per una visita al museo programmata secondo l'orario previsto durante la prenotazione

She did the best possible on a windy, rainy day. We visited several art noveaux locations, used the tram. Her microphone helped to be heard over the city noise.

Wile I booked an English tour, it was conducted in English and French. This wasn’t made clear before the start. It slowed everything down as the commentary had to be done twice. The guide was very knowledgeable about her subject and was interesting. A tram journey was involved and unfortunately we were at the mercy of the Brussels transport network. All trams ground to a halt for half an hour, resulting in further walking and more delay. Not the fault of the tour company, I know, but it prolonged the walk even more.
