No recomendamos a esta guía. Sus explicaciones fueron muy básicas y generales, poco interesantes. Dimos un paseo con ella por la ciudad pero poco más.

El tour fue interesante aunque a Inés no se la entendía muy bien porque hablaba bajito. Te vas con una buena idea de Malinas. El fin del tour en la Catedral podía haber sido de otra manera, hacia muchísimo viento y frío y apenas se oía a Inés. Si hubiera elegido otro sitio más resguardado, nos hubiéramos ido con mejor sabor de boca.
