What you'll do

Well, I can give you more than 43 reasons why you should visit this city! There are various things to experience here: things to see, things to learn, things to taste!

With its 159 embassies and 2500 diplomats, Brussels is the world's second seat of diplomatic representations. How did this young city acquire a prominent role so rapidly in Europe since the Middle Age? Since its first stone put in 580, Europe has witnessed Brussels' lightning evolution to power. This city has been a capital of numerous territories: Burgundy, Brabant, the Netherlands, Belgium and now Europe. Its refined heritage is prized by so many. If you let me introduce you to this legacy, I will make sure you see it, touch it and taste it!

Today, the city is famous for its delicious chocolates and sweets, renowned beer, outstanding architecture and this unique way to continuously surprise you. But Brussels holds some of Europe's most amazing sites!The Grand Place, World Heritage of Unesco for more than 20 years. The City Hall and the Cathedral, both masterpiece of the Gothic architecture.

We really loved this walking tour! I’ve done a decent amount and Sancar was one of my favorite guides. He shared so much about the history of his city and it felt like a natural progression. He made us feel very comfortable (we had an 11-month old) and was thoughtful. I’m very grateful that we had this experience with him, he made our trip!!

Sancar was super knowledgeable, accommodating and kind. He has a deep understanding of Belgian history and culture; and you could hear his passion throughout the entire tour. I’m super glad I went on this tour — as I learned things about Belgium that I never would have even thought to research. 11/10! Book this tour towards the beginning of your stay in Brussels.

A great introduction to Brussels. Sancar made sure to make us feel welcome and give a few special Belgian treats as part of the tour. Thanks and hope to do this again in the future.
