ToursByLocals is the only way to see the highlights of a place when you only have a short time to visit. We were in London and decided at last minute to take Eurostar over to Brussels for the day. Meeting our guide a the train station was an efficient and quick way to get to the heart of Brussels. Anneke shepherded us onto the metro train and got us to the right stop where we walked among the city's important historic sites and then walked to the chocolate shops where she got us tastings.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julie, the pleasure was all mine.

I would've given Anneke another star if I could. We traveled as a group of 6 with the youngest being a 11 month old and the oldest being 65. We traveled into Brussels by train and left to Paris also by train. Anneke was there since the moment we step foot in Brussels till we left. She was great at planning the trip for us and showed the historic and amazing Brussels during the Christmas time. She even arranged a photographer on a last minute request.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A happy 2018 to you and your lovely family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Aleksandra and family, it was a pleasure to guide you around in Brussels. All the best Anneke

This tour was over a year ago but my daughter is still coming up with things she learned on it and the perspectives she gained from discussions with Anneke, so I feel I should note this with 5 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Juli, I remember your daughter being very interested in history. Learning through traveling... I wish it to everyone. regards Anneke
Anneke was helpful in getting us to see the most of Brussels when we had very limited time, and we were especially impressed that she focused away from the best known areas where we could easily wander ourselves. She was especially informative about history and culture, and she was very flexible in helping us as our plans evolved.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your comment, the pleasure was all mine. Next time we'll go to Bruges & Ghent...
Excellent guide..fluent English , knowledgeable, and tailored the tour to our particular interests. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Noel & Evy. Hope to have you back in Brussels one day. kind regards Anneke
I met with Mr Gottdank yesterday and he showed me the pictures that were taken when you toured he and his Wife to the war cemetery. He was so impressed with what you did for them and I also want to thank you once again for taking such good care of my clients. When I have other clients interested in a private tour of Brussels, I would highly recommend you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was happy to share this special moment with Mr & Ms Gottank. Hope to hear from you soon. Anneke

Anneke did an excellent job of organising a tour and lunch for 44 people. We all had a great time and the day ran smoothly. After lunch the group divided into two, one group went to a beer tasting and the other group went to a chocolate demonstration. We were then all reunited to have waffles before our departure. Anneke was efficient, knowledgeable and very pleasant and we were glad to have her with us for the day. Thank you
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jan. I'm always happy to show people around in my City.
