Highlights
    What to Expect
    After pickup from your Brussels hotel, relax during the scenic journey to Antwerp by air-conditioned coach. Listen as your guide sets the historical scene, offering information on Antwerp’s associations with 17th-century painter, Peter Paul Rubens, and the city's architecturally rich heritage.

    On arrival, head straight to the National Redoubt of Belgium, a flagrant fortress used to defend the city in turbulent past times. Stroll the ambient labyrinth of streets and see attractions like the Market Square and Butcher’s Hall. Gaze at the impressive façade of the Cathedral of Our Lady then venture within to admire significant artworks by Rubens; appreciate the delicate beauty of paintings like ‘The Resurrection of the Virgin’ and ‘The Elevation of the Cross’ before enjoying some relaxed free time in the historical heart of the city.

    Reconvene with your group and head to Antwerp's railway station, finished by 1905, and marvel at its outstanding architecture and grandeur. When your cultural exploration concludes, return to your vehicle and relax during the journey back to your Brussels hotel.

    We had a wonderful time in Antwerp. We had a full bus but the wonderful multilingual guide kept us informed and interested the whole trip. Our guide Jan walked us through the city. He pointed out so much to see and helped interpret the beautiful Rubens paintings in the church.

    This was our first tour as soon as we got to Belgium. We were tired after an overnight flight and yet, it was completely worth it! Our guide Carlos was very good. He gave us plenty of information on the city of Antwerp and answered all our questions. He even took us to a church

    This was my best tour and my favorite visit while in Belgium. Antwerp is pretty all around and gave me a better impression of Belgium after seeing Brussels. The guide was knowledgable and friendly. The dude also spoke multiple languages to accommodate everyone on board the bus.
