We had a great tour with Peter. He was very knowledgeable and made it a fun and interesting tour. We gained a lot of interesting insights about Leuven, university and student’s life. Thoroughly recommend this.

The tour was great! Peter ran the tour even though it was a very small group (tourist off-season/ after Easter break), so it felt very personable with the small group. I really liked the focus of the tour and the advice on what to visit. Ended up going to Groot Begijnhof on his recommendation and I really enjoyed it! Wouldn't have likely ended up their on my own. He also gave nice recommendations on where to eat. Would recommend the tour!
