What you'll do

Have you ever asked yourself what that building would be while on vacation? Or what works of art hide those? Those buildings have more to say than they look. We will discover the city in a unique way and time travel between centuries and get to places where a tourist doesn’t goes. What makes my tour so special is that we’ll experience Antwerp from inside, across the river and from the sky. De Meir, Groenplaats, Scheldt quays, 't Steen, Cathedral, ... and a lot more that Antwerp has to offer. After the tour you will call yourself an Antwerp expert and you will look back a lot at the photos you have taken. In less than 3 hours you will see the most important, most beautiful and impressive places of Antwerp. To book a larger group, please send a message. Feel free to message if the day is fully booked or not available. We can arrange another possible time together.

Hi I'm Ismail. I moved to Antwerp years ago, at first I thought it was a nice city, but then I fell in love with it. There is a lot hidden behind the beautiful facades. I have taken the time to organize an ideal tour for my guests. I've been looking around every corner. I also want to share this with you. I myself have already guided in Brussels, Ghent and Dublin. So I know well what my guests want from a tour.

Hele leuke rondleiding gehad door Antwerpen. Op leuke plekken gekomen die wij anders zo voorbij waren gelopen. Vriendelijke gids en kwam zelfs met veel tips die we zelf nog na de rondleiding konden doen. Zeker aan te raden!

Ein unglaublich netter und fürsorglicher Ismail hat uns pünktlich empfangen und uns seine Stadt gezeigt. Er kennt viele kleine besondere Orte und Geheimtipps, achtet auf jeden in der Gruppe und es ist keine Minute langweilig. Wir sind als Freunde mit lächelnden Gesichtern und sehr bereichert auseinander gegangen, ein Traumstart um noch mehr von Antwerpen zu entdecken. 1000 Dank lieber Ismail, you did a great Job👍

What a wonderful tour of Antwerp!! I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. I wish I could give this tour ten stars! Ismail was open and attentive, focusing the tour on our interests. He was beyond flexible! When our son became sick on the tour, he was very kind and patient and even willing to take us a longer amount of time to fit everything in. Ismail clearly has a passion for Antwerp and truly knows the history and architecture of the city. You couldn't find a better guide. You will not be disappointed in this tour!

We booked a private tour with Ismail in case our train was delayed or we were otherwise late-turns out our train was late and Ismail was gracious and patient and did not cut our tour short. He even borrowed his father's car so that he could drive us to the various stops and save the time we would've spent walking. We'd advised him we were extremely interested in the Art Nouveau architecture and although he'd not included that in his prior tours, he did the research and made it a focal point of our tour. Ismail is a teacher, and it is evident in the quality of his tour. He clearly did a lot of research on the history of the neighborhood and was extremely informative on the subject. We chose Ismail to help make our daytrip to Antwerp memorable and it was even more wonderful than we'd imagined. If you want to experience this beautiful city with a knowledgeable local, Ismail is absolutely the person to call!

Ismael really knows Antwerp! He took us to some places that aren’t on most normal tourist websites so they are unknown and less discovered. It was a beautiful tour of a beautiful city!
