We book a tour on English (there was another available on French), so it was quite a surprise when we arrived, and the guide told us, she would give the tour in english and in french... such a pitty, we were so looking forward to get to hear and discover about the Art Noveau architecture in the city, but even when the guide seemed to be friendly and well informed, we found the whole two language sudden switch was stressing so we decided to leave at the second spot.

Not as interesting as I thought it would be. I'm disapointed.

A great experience. Our guide was able to explain things outside of the tour material and answer our questions.

Thank you very much to Elise who took the time to show us around the art nouveau scene of Brussels, we loved around the city and saw plenty of examples of this period of time in the city. I am a local and learned new things and my boyfriend (visiting from the US) also loved it, as he's an art nouveau and architecture fan!
