What people are saying about Grand-Place

Great tour! The food was delicious!!! Honestly, if you do the tour in the morning there is no need for breakfast, because you get so much food. We had a beer, did some sightseeing, then went to a restaurant and had a salad with two big shrimp croquettes, a huge pot of mussels, vol-au-vent with fries and an eclair for dessert. You could also get a coffee at the end of the meal. Each course was accompanied by a different beer. Then we did some more sightseeing and ended the tour with two pralines each, which was more than enough after the huge feast xD Our guide was very kind and knowledgeable. He gave us tips for further destinations we wanted to visit and showed us cheap options where we could buy the beers we tried. I can only recommend doing this tour!

Excellent tour, accompanied by the guide Mareke, who was able to share with us her beautiful country and the city of Brussels in particular as well as the divinely well-cooked culinary specialties

It was easy to get in, get around and get out. We went on a week day and it was hot. Bring water! Everything was cute and worth the price. Fun for the whole family.
