Our guide Bart did a great tour with us through Antwerpen explaining the history of the city in a very interesting, informative and amusing way. He also pointed out the best restaurants, waffle shops and beer bars, which were really helpful for the coming days. I can highly recommend this tour with him and because of him we will certainly visit Antwerp again. Once again thank you, Bart.

Patrick replaced Roger who was unavailable that day but the interest of the visit did not suffer at all: we had to deal with a real passionate and lover of Antwerp who made us want to come back to maybe take advantage be longer of his knowledge of the history of the city and its little secrets. Thanks to him for these few hours of sharing
