This was an amazing tour. Our guide Albert and our driver Elvis were wonderful. Albert spoke English and Spanish for the tour and made sure to say everything in both languages. He gave us SO much information. We hit all the city highlights and we really enjoyed the tour. It’s a little over 2.5 hours but it went by so fast. One thing though: get your guide has a tour option at 10 - it’s not at 10 it’s always 9:30. Arrive at 9:15. We arrived at 9:45 and thankfully the tour hadn’t left the area yet and we were able to join. The tour company was very accommodating and apologized for the miscommunication.

Jasmine was our guide and spoke Spanich, French and English. We were 14 in our group and were guided from the office to La Grande Place where we were informed about the history of the beautiful buildings. We followed Jasmine through a wonderful arcade full of Belgian chocolate shops and luxury boutiques before be found the parked roomy coach. The tour was very informative and the stop in front of the Atomium was a welcome break. There's a clean public toilet in the carpark! We went back to the Atomium later in the day. Well worth a visit!

The first part was on foot because no bus could drive in the big square; Afterwards there was a detailed bus tour with lots of information thanks to our guide Stephane. He conducted the tour in several languages. He answered every question and was very exclusive towards every participant. Highly recommended
