Full description

Get an overview of the fascinating city of Brussels, with a tour through the medieval and Baroque city, the industrial city, the bourgeois city, and on to modern Brussels. This tour ensures you get to see all the parts of this multi-faceted city.

Learn about the city’s museums, where the best bars and local beers are, and where to buy the best chocolate at a reasonable price. Your guide will also answer any practical questions you might have about restaurants, attractions, nightlife, or even just getting around on public transport. During your walking tour of the city, the tour will be split into two different areas: the Upper City and Lower City. The tour is structured this way to help you better understand the origins and historic development of Brussels.  Highlights on your tour of the Lower City include the Grand Palace, the Everard t'Serclaes monument on Charles Buls street, the Manneken Pis and Grands Carmes street, Marché au Charbon street, the Covering of the Senne, Riches Claires street, and Grande Île street, Saint-Géry Island and more.  Whilst perusing through the Upper city, you'll notice a very different style. During this portion of the tour, you will see landmarks such as the Grand Place, the power of merchants, the Galeries Royales St Hubert, and the Mort Subite.

You'll also see the Cathedral of St. Michael and St. Gudula (visit inside: stained glass windows, the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament, the pulpit), the Royal Park, the Royal Palace, the Royal Square, and The Palace of Coudenberg among many others.

Our guide, Walid, is in a class of his own. He made us discover the history of Belgium and Brussels brilliantly, bringing out the subtlety of the links with the surrounding regions and within the country itself. He gave us a fascinating history lesson while involving the members of the group, from various origins. The tour was both rewarding and enjoyable.

Please note that the schedule for visiting the upper and lower town of Brussels is not respected. Only the lower town is on the guide's program, excellent by the way (Walid from Bravo Discovery). The description of the visit also speaks of chocolate tasting...no chocolates. Despite this, this 2h30 visit is really instructive and our guide, a native of Brussels, did not hesitate to answer all our questions. We recommend, despite this program problem, this visit.

The walk was guided by James, a committed storyteller. He guided us through the center with flair. He had stories about De Grote Markt, Liège Waffles, Manneken Pis, beer, the King of the Belgians and much more. At the end he shared recommendations for the city of Brussels and many other cities.
