What people are saying about Antwerp
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.
