Do not miss! I have been to over thirty countries and this was the best two hour tour of any city that I have ever taken. Conor is a terrific guide, friendly, mindful, extremely knowledgeable, and a terrific storyteller. He has an endless variety of recommendations for everything from beer and food to museums and chocolatiers, and an inexhaustible knowledge and critical eye for Belgian and Brusselian history, linking all of this knowledge back to the sites and places visited. For anyone that has ever discounted Brussels as bureaucratic or dull, take this tour to fall in love with a vibrant, exciting, resilient city and its millennia of history.

This tour covered a lot of history of Belgium (both good and bad) as well as all the Belgian delicacies. Our guide had a good pace; we never stayed for too long at one place but still got a good amount of information. Overall, I’d highly recommend this tour if you want to see all the main spots in Brussels!
