We had a wonderful day trip from Amsterdam to Brussels. It is a beautiful city and our guide was excellent. We visited all the cultural centers, cathedrals, places of interest, visited a chocolate factory, had some free time for shopping and to taste the local cuisine. Would highly recommend this tour.

A marvelous day in Brussels!

My wife and I loved this full-day tour from Amsterdam. It was easy to connect with the excursion group at the City Station. Our guide was informative, entertaining, and fun to be with. it was great that we stopped at the Atomia, icon of the 1958 World Expo, and I wish we had time to take the tour. The chocolate-making stop at Planete Chocolat in Brussels was exceptional. The chocolatier was funny, engaging, and very, very good. The chocolates...DELICIOUS! We loved having about 2 hours to explore Brussels on our own.

Had a great time but maybe a little too much time down in main area and not enough time at the park area. It was dark and cold
