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 Waleed was the perfect guide! A local who knows the city's history and explained all the points on the tour with exceptional clarity! This is the most important aspect of any tour - that the guide be invested in the people, the city, the Culture and the Country. His knowledge added so much to our appreciation of what we were seeing at the stops. Most of all, he had an excellent sense of humor! If there is ever a possibility of choosing your guide, ask for Waleed!

Thiago our guide was very informative with a nice personality, not only did he cover all historical events, also gave his local knowledge of best restaurants and hidden bars to visit Thiago made the tour relaxing and interesting BUT We had six people in our group and My husband and I was the only ones that paid in advance, when we arrived we found out that the other 4 people hadn’t paid due to it being a free walking tour Found this very annoying that a company can take money in advance and then offer it for free on the day Had we’d known it was free we would not have booked and just turned up

I enjoyed the tour, Louise is very friendly and full of knowledge and tips. I do have a feedback against GYG as a company. I was a bit unhappy to find out that this tour which I paid €20 was also offered as a free tour which others could join in. GYG I don’t think you should conduct your business this way and I will rethink about booking future tours with you.
