Discovering this incredible art city with a private guide


This is one of the most fascinating cities in Europe, where the people are so proud that they call themselves "Sinjoor" (dating from the time when Spain ruled over the city). Antwerp has stunning architecture: from the late middle ages (very well hidden back alleys) as well as art nouveau and art deco, top attractions like the Rubens museum, the Meir and the cathedral, and so many stories to understand it all. . .

Itinerary

Starting with the Central Station, walking through the diamond neighborhood, the Meir (the Antwerp shopping boulevard), the Wapper with the house of Pieter Paul Rubens, the Cathedral and the medieval neighborhood, the fashion district, the City Hall and the church of Saint Paul. We will end at the river Schelde. Of course this can be adapted to your wishes.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: We can meet at the entrance of the zoo, right beside Central Station.I can also pick you up at your hotel provided it is in the city center. If it is not I still can pick you up - just let me know and I will tell you what the extra cost might be

End location: End of the tour on the Main Square, if that suits you.

Duration: 3 hours

Transportation

The centre of Antwerp is pedestrian zone and all the points of interest lie close to each other: so let's walk!

What’s Included

The guide, showing you the well kept secrets! The center is not that big and mainly a pedestrian zone, so we will be walking

Estimated Local Cash Needed

35 € - The cathedral host some of the most beautiful Rubens paintings: entrance fee is 6€ per person. I know a great restaurant serving local dishes - if you are hungry... Lunch will cost about 25€ drinks and coffee included. Otherwise let me show you where the most beautiful chocolate shop of Antwerp is hidden...

What’s Extra

We could take the subway if you don't want to walk the "Meir" (the shopping street). The ticket is not included, nor is the entrance fee to one of the museums you might wish to visit.

A Recent Review of this tour

Dirk put me at ease upon meeting me and my son at the gorgeous train station at Antwerp. He saw to our comfort in the on-again, off-again rain as we visited the various highlights of the city, including the river Skeldt. We enjoyed hearing the colorful history from a local guide, and purchasing delicious, fanciful chocolate in a palace once occupied by Napoleon. The great cathedral and treasured Rubens paintings inside ended our tour with a distinctive, and surely indelible, impression of lovely Antwerp.
