Anneke knows Brussels well and makes a four-hour city walking tour full of interesting historical, geographical and social backgrounds, including current political and economical issues at the heart of the city. She takes us as if a friend taking her personal visitors touring the city. She knows where all the interesting places are and paces the walk with breaks in famous chocolate shops and garden benches. Thank you Anneke for giving us the inside knowledge of your city. Ashley, Jan and Louis
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your nice feedback and for choosing me to be your guide in Belgium. It was a true pleasure welcoming you and showing you round!

Daisy Mae AngUnited States
It was one of the best decision we had to hire a local tour guide as no time was wasted especially when you have only 1.5 day and kids to tag along., And the second best part was to hire a local tour guide who has a passion and love of what she is doing,her love for her country and intense enthusiasm of what she is doing., Thank you Anneke for the warm welcome and for the great opportunity to experience brussels in 3 hrs, it was a very amazing experience.........
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Daisy. It was a pleasure to take you and your family arond in Brussels. I'm still laughing, when I think of the little boys, how they ran around in circles like fierce knights on the Grand Place.
Lesley OBrienUnited States
With only about 3 hours to see Brussels before catching our next train, I don't think we would have survived without Anneke. She met us on the platform at the station and guided us through every aspect of the tour. Our two requests were to see Grand Place and eat some waffles, both of which were met, along with seeing much more and even squeezing in a chocolate tasting. At the end she brought us back to the station and sent us on our way. It was a fun, stress-free way to see Brussels!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. Delighted you enjoyed your time in Brussels. Best regards, Anneke

Linda WadkinUnited Kingdom
Anneke was easy to listen to, engaging, informative & knowledgeable on the city of Brussels; her command of English is outstanding. A lot of info in a short tour - our 2 hrs was just the right amount of time. There was good communication beforehand in booking process. On the day, a bit too much time spent telling us about eateries - would have preferred a few more focus & insights into the cultural sights & historical buildings given the short time (2 hours) we had. Quite pricey for small group (6).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda, I always try to find a balance between the informative and the fun. But I must have been hungry that day, just thinking about food ... Thank you for the nice compliment and when you come next time with a full bus, we'll make it a whole day. All the best, Anneke
Darlene KernerUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Darlene, it was nice being around with you. Regards Anneke
Ramon Pardo IIIUnited States
Anneke was very knowledgeable about Brussels history. If you are a history buff, the knowledge you will acquire is immense. The tour was entertaining. Chocolate lovers beware, the tour will make you hook on chocolate. Belgian waffle is one of the best, if not the best in the world. I will advise my friends and co- workers who are on the fence about Brussels tour, stop thinking, do it. You will enjoy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the commend Ramon. I feel like you will come back to Brussels one day. Warm regards Anneke

Danielle TjalsmaUnited States
Anneke was Energetic and knowledgeable ... Much information on the political, economical history of Brussels. She took us to many places and points of interest we would not otherwise have visited and linked much of what we saw together with the history of monarch leadership . She also had little anecdotes and origins of some of,our everyday sayings. All five of us enjoyed the afternoon & learned a lot (2 adults plus 21, 19 and 15)... Thank,you Anneke!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the comment, I hope you enjoyed the dinner and beer as much.:)

Anneke was wonderful! She was very informative on the history of Brussels and had some fun stories she shared during our tour, too. She was helpful in recommending restaurants, stores and museums to enjoy during our stay. If we travel back to Brussels in the future, we will plan to book another tour with Anneke.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the comment Cheryl, I hope you enjoyed the Magritte Museum as much. Is Madalyn already reading her Spanish Comic book? (hahaha) Don't wait another 20 years to come back to Brussels. All the best Anneke

John C ReidUnited States
This tour is well worth the price. Anneke is very well informed and was knowledgeable about the history of the city of Brussels. Would not hesitate to hire her again if (and when) we return. We took the three hour tour and could have spent another three hours walking and talking about and through such a beautiful city.
