Discover Belgium's colonial history and current African presence in the capital of Europe.
With the Treaty of Berlin of 1885, Kongo became private property of the Belgian king Leopold II. It would take until 1960 for Kongo to gain its independence.
During the car tour and walking tour with your private guide, you discover buildings and monuments in Brussels which remind us of that colonial period. You also visit the Matonge district which is a miniature Kinshasa.
A customized tour can be created in case you have special requests. You can also book me for tours in Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, Leuven and Flanders Fields.
My car is a Volkswagen Tiguan which is comfortable for 1 to 3 passenger; a larger vehicle can be organised for groups up to 8 guests. A coach with a driver can be rented for bigger groups.
My agenda is up to date, so kindly check my availability.
During the car ride we see the Palace of Laken, the Royal Green Houses, the Chinese Pavilion, the Japanese Tower, the Atomium, the Throne Square with the statue of King Leopold II, the Jubilee Park with the Kongo Monument and the Triumphal Arch.
We walk through the Matonge District with its African grocers, hairdressers and fashion shops.
