As we had been to Antwerp a number of times before, Erwin guided us through some districts of Antwerp we agreed on beforehand and that are a bit off the beaten track (Zurenborg and Het Zuid). Erwin gave us lots of interesting information on the districts sights, history and significance for present day Antwerp. Erwin was very knowledgeable and informative without overwhelming us with information. He kept a comfortable pace and we stopped for a coffee break half way. We enjoyed the tour very much.
