ORIGINS & BEHIND THE SCENES OF BRUSSELS
Did you already visit Brussels? Or are you just more interested in the less touristy areas? Then this is your tour! Starting in the city centre we move on to the outskirts of Brussels. I’ll be talking about the evolution through the ages, (multi)cultural & local life, upcoming neighborhoods, street art,… And of course the best chocolates and Belgian are to be found on this 2h30 tour!
THE THREE STATUES-TOUR
Did you know that Brussels has 3 peeing statues? On this 3 hour historical tour through the historic centre we’ll discover them all! From the origins of Brussels, we’ll pass the old harbor and go to the Grand Place and surroundings. Then we go up town to visit the area of political power and end our tour at the very nice Sablon area, outside the touristy area.
THE 16TH CENTURY BRUSSELS
Did you know that Brussels was already the capital of Europe in the 16th century? Okay, maybe not exactly… But in the beginning of the 16th century Charles V, the Spanish king and German Emperor, had his headquarters on the Coudenberg. From there he ruled over an empire 'where the sun never set'. On this 3 hour tour you’ll discover this extra-ordinary period.
Did you know that there are a lot of statues with a Congo-link in Brussels? This 3 hour is explaining all these statues that were put up for the Belgian so-called heroes. Besides that we’ll pass many buildings with remarkable stories and historical facts on politics and economics in the 19th century. During the 3 hour walk you’ll get an insight in this unknown and cruel Belgian history.
BELGIAN BEER TOUR
Did you know that Belgium has strong blondes, sour & sweet beers and traditional brown beers? On this tasty tour you’ll discover them all! Plus you’ll also get to know much more about the brewing proces, the history of beers, the right way to taste a beer and the new Brussels beers. Besides that, all 3 bars we go to on the 2h30 tour have unique stories and interiors.
MUSIC & DRINKS TOUR
Did you ever visit the Brussels nightlife with a local? Let me take you to a few nice bars: authentic, trendy or trashy, we’ve got’em all! We could go drink a Belgian beer, a glass of wine or even a cocktail, if you want. In between the bars I’ll tell you about the Brussels history. And on your demand we could go to a rock-bar, a jazz-club or an electro-place on this 2h30 tour.
All the tours are open for children and families for groups up to 25 people.
The tour are also available en Français, auf Deutsch en in het Nederlands
A Belgian born local I moved to Brussels 20 years ago. And I've surely not regret it! Today I still love this diverse city more than ever: to go to concert, to taste beers with friends or just to walk through the historical streets. At a youth organization I started first organizing tours for our trainees. Later I became a Greeter - a local who shows his city to tourists - and discovered that guiding people is what I really love to do: meeting people, taking the through the city, learning them about the history and the local life, having a drink,... Damn, what a great job! Yes, because now I am a professional guide, combining my passion for history with my presentation skills as a journalist. See you on tour!
