Explore the old medieval heart of the capital with a personal local guide
Brussels city is quickly becoming a trendy spot for weekend getaways and holidays. Apart from its famous chocolates and beers there are many attractions that most visitors cannot begin to imagine. It is a centre of European culture, officially nicknamed 'the European Village', with almost 90 museums, beautiful parks, fascinating walks, trendy restaurants and bars. There is a lot to learn about the history of the city, the architecture, the Belgian obsession with comic strips, and the art of chocolate, fries, mussels, waffles and beer.
I recommend you combine this tour with the Belgian flavours sampling lunch (tour #: 3065) (beer, cheese, ham, fries, chocolate and waffles for an extra 20€ per person).

My partner and I had the delight in having Joyce take us around. Really interesting and what a wonderful lady. We really saw the sights and had very interesting history and stories told. Also just a really fascinating lady. We really clicked and laughed throughout the whole of our private tour. I recommend adding the food and drink to the tour as we went to a great bar to try local beers that was not a tourist trap at all. I would really recommend Joyce as your guide. Thank you so much.
