The tour was amazing and Sancar is just very friendly, patient and welcoming. I would definitely recommend to book a tour with Sancar if you are in Brussels and what to explore the city whilst learning about its historical background.

C'était un plaisir de faire cette visite guidée en compagnie de Sancar. Il maîtrise très bien le sujet et nous a recommandé de bons restos/bars à tester. Nous avons bien apprécié la surprise sucrée qui nous attendait aux Galeries. À très bientôt

Sancar was a fabulous guide who taught me a lot about the Brussels architecture and history. He made the most of a bad situation with the outbreak of Coronavirus as I was the only one to show up for the tour and he still showed me a great time. You will be in good hands with Sancar! Thanks again!

Sancar is extremely knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. He has great stories to share that make the 2.5 hours go by unnoticeable. The extra touch is the waffle and chocolate tasting that goes along with the Troy. We are very satisfied with our purchase
