First off, be warned, though the tor is advertised as free, actually the guides get their pay from the attendees directly and pay a management fee to Vova Tours. Thus, while you can actually avoid paying, this would be atrociously unkind.
Especially with regard to the quality and genuity of the tour. Real Bruxellois show you around their city, recommend restaurants, chocolateries, fry shows, bars and beers after their own taste rather than the usual tourist traps. Our guide, the amazing Cecilia, answered every question quick, but in detail, dived into the history of this ancient city and kept up the moods although the temperature did not once rise above freezing point.

Read reviews and decided to give this tour a try, really pleased we did. We met in the Grand Place (Orange umbrellas) to start the tour. Our guide, Celine, was very informative and funny too. She really knew her stuff. The tour took approx 2 hours and we zigzaged our way around Brussels taking in lots of facts and landmarks. The tour is free with you paying the guide what you think it's worth at the end. A great way to see the city, I would highly recommend.
