What people are saying about Brussels

A marvel!!! The truth is that it was the first time and I had many doubts but everything was super well put together. I took in Brussels in English because there were no other options but then among the people in the group there were many who also spoke Spanish and I didn't feel lost, people are super open and it's very comfortable. There are 4 bars I have invited to a beer in the first bar and in the following ones to a shot in each one that were soft and they give a discount on drinks also with the bracelet that they give you at the beginning. 100% recommendable.

Jose was the most amazing host! I came to the pub crawl by myself and met really great people. Jose made sure that we were all having a great time every step of the way. Thanks Jose for making the pub crawl such a great time! Would definitely recommend this activity to everyone!

App worked perfectly and the exhibition was absolutely awesome, a great blend of back ground material, insights into the personal life of the artists and his friends and family and influences, and wonderful, varied works
