What people are saying about Brussels

An original way to discover the center of Brussels.

Even for people from Brussels, it's a great way to learn more about the city. The guide was cool. It was a great experience to (re)discover the city this way. And this wasn't too fast nor too slow, just the right running rythme. To be honnest, I think he adapted his rythme to mine. Well, for everyone who like to run and want to discover the history of Brussels, I surely recommand Brussels Sightjogging!

Super, very different!

With the guide, we were only three total. The pacing suited us well and the guide explained a lot. The stopping and going was often a bit stressful. The service that picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel was super. They had water and chocolate for us. The contact went smoothly through emails. We're already back home.

The guide was super nice and knowledgeable. It was very clear that she loves Brussels and knows a lot about the art, history and local stori3s
