Visit the Capital of Europe with a private guide
You want to know why Brussels is called the Capital of Europe and see for yourself what this does to a city. The tour includes the visit of the Parlamentarium (visitor center of the Parliament) and a walk to the heart of the institutions. We will end in the old city center and see some of the most interesting spots. If you are in for some of the finest chocolates and/or beers I will take you to some of my favorite addresses. . .
From the station (or your hotel)we will take the subway (ticket included) to the Schuman Square : seat of the European Commission and the European Council. From here we will be walking back in time (through the astonishing Leopold Parc with several Art Nouveau Institutions) to reach the Luxemburg Square with the Parliament and the visiting center. After that return to the city center (subway)

Dirk V is great tour guide. our family of 5 spent wonderful 4 hours touring of Brussels with him. His English language is like native speaker, and has rich knowledge about everything of the city, historical, religious, and political. He made every effort to cover most of the city attractions. He made our tour worthwhile and we enjoyed our tour very much. We strongly recommend him as top tour guide.
