For those interested in a more political tour of Brussels, please let us know. We can adapt our introduction tour to focus heavily on the different levels of political Belgium.
Our private tours are limited exclusively to travelers in your party. They are designed to provide a learning experience that is completely tailored to you and your traveling companions. Private tours give you more flexibility with scheduling (you decide when the walk best fits in your trip), the ability to tailor your itinerary (we'll work to match the itinerary to the interests and dynamics of your group), and more personalized time with your guide.
Where do we meet?
We usually meet near Grand-Place. Your confirmation email will have the exact meeting point details along with with a map, and 24-hour phone number for any last-minute issues.
What if it’s raining?
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your expert will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to be prepared; we encourage keeping an eye on the weather and bringing along an umbrella, sunscreen, water, or a hat as needed.
