It was a great comprehensive tour. As a solo traveller it's nice to meet other travellers and explore the city with someone who knows the area. The guide offered a great overview of the Old Centre and answered all the questions we had. It was quite windy (early January) so I do recommend bundling up, as we spent most of the time outside. Some of the things we saw are not available every day (due to events like weddings) so I think a bit is luck is involved, and we were very lucky :)

Very nice to walk through the city of Antwerp in this way. Our guide Peter had a lot of fun to tell and showed us a lot. We thought it was highly recommended and although we know Antwerp quite well, we are still surprised with new facts and places that we would otherwise pass by.

Cozy tour through the center where you learn more about Antwerp and also see the hidden alleys. Marc showed us around in a playful way.

A very informative walk with a lot of information about the history of Antwerp, definitely worth it

Guide could tell a lot about Antwerp, also about the origin and history. It was very interesting
