Perfection! My husband and I love to be tourists, but don't love looking like tourists. This small group tour was perfect and intimate. I can't say enough about how much we loved this. We've taken a lot of tours in a lot of cities, and have paid a lot more to get a lot less. This tour is a winner! Céline was knowledgeable and friendly. She obviously loves her city so subsequently we instantly fell in love with both her and Brussels. We would have been willing to spend the entire day with her.
Our guide David was an unlimited source of information, entertainment and passion. I have been on many walking tours around the world and as a professional Travel Consultant I offer my customers many city tours, after this experience I will be recommending to all my customers to join this tour. His knowledge of the country and city - political, historical and all the weird and wonderful bits in between - was wonderfully presented to us and his charming, passionate nature had us enthralled from start to finish. Many thanks David!
Absolutely amazing experience! Don't hesitate, book these guys and you'll love it! It's worth double of the price! You can tell he is a local. David is so passionate, he knows and loves what he is doing and he passes this genuine excitement and curiosity on to you. The tour is relaxing and enjoyable, so many places to see and things to try! These guys thought about every subtle thing to make it worth booking! This was a great way to start our trip. An experience to remember and cherish. Highly recommended!
Having had the chance to participate in Celine’s tour of Brussels’ inner city was a pleasure and a privilege. We were given such a warm welcome and Celine went to great lengths to make sure we would be comfortable for the time spent together. She was responsive, provided clear informations on all relevant subjects and gave helpful answers when we had questions. Celine is blessed to have grown up in Belgium and to live in such a nice and interesting part of Brussels. Thanks Celine for having shown us this rare opportunity.
Celine grew up on the countryside in a French-speaking family, she eventually moved to the capital ten years ago. She lost herself in the world of words and verses and after a few typical office jobs, she became a tour guide. Thoroughly convinced that Brussels is not a city that one loves at first sight, Celine has made it her duty to discover its secrets and its fascinating history. Now she is ready to show it in all its glory, and sometimes lack of it, to visitors who travel to Brussels. As a true Belgian she enjoys trying out new craft beers and doesn't shy away from walks on rainy days, on the contrary...
David grew up in a Flemish-speaking family. Thinking he had to study something 'useful' he got a degree in industrial design but he kept on pursuing his true passion, art and history. In his spare time he works on art projects and has a slight obsession when it comes to reading and learning new things. He is a firm believer that you can make anything fascinating, as long as it is conveyed with passion. Having worked as a tour guide for several years, he keeps his focus on improvement to go beyond the expectations of his clients. Lastly, he can be quite snobbish when it comes to his love for chocolate.
As local Belgian guides we left behind guiding tours for massive groups which make it impossible to deliver an authentic and personal experience. With a small group, it is easier to create a connection on both sides to avoid being part of a never ending script or routine. This is when we decided to change course and deliver personal and intimate experiences for the intellectually curious that want to genuinely discover the culture and history of the city. This without having to privately book a guide just for yourself. To achieve this we guarantee the following: 1. A local Belgian guide with a personal approach and profound expertise. 2. A small group (max. 10 people) 3. Excellent English (facilitates communication and is more pleasant to listen to).
