Sébastien a été un très bon guide. Très sympa et à l'écoute ! On est vraiment satisfaits de cette expérience parce qu'on a pu voir et savoir beaucoup de choses qu'on aurait pas remarqué sans lui. Il nous a donné également de bons conseils pour visiter les villes aux alentours de Bruxelles. On recommande vivement ! Merci Sébastien

We had visited previously and had a really disappointing experience with another free tour, but our experience with this tour completely turned around our experience of Brussels! Our guide was great, I regret to say we were a few minutes late and didn't catch his name before the tour started, but he provided a great collection of historical and contemporary information in a well organized and cohesive tour. It was interesting and engaging throughout! We had a great time and really enjoyed the experience. Of the free tours available in Brussels, we recommend this one.
