As visitors to a dynamic destination, we often need a little help when it comes to first time explorations. Brussels, for example, is one of those cities that can be quite overwhelming to journey through alone. That being said, if you want to gain a proper introduction to this city that is dubbed as the ‘heart of Europe’, it’s always best to take a guided tour from the locals as a start.
Now, you probably know how Belgium has become my 2nd home, and I’ve already been living here for almost 2 years; therefore, it’s safe to say that I have a good understanding of the city of Brussels. That’s why when Global Enterprises invited me to try their All-In Discovery Brussels Walking Tour, I was more than excited to take up their offer!
For one thing, they claimed that their tour is the ultimate solution for travelers who are looking to discover Brussels for the first time. When I first heard that from them, I immediately wanted to see for myself if such can be true! I also wanted to see if it was something that I can eventually recommend, especially since there have been a number of you guys who have been asking me of the BEST tour to take in this metropolis.
The verdict? After a 4-hour affair on this All-In Discovery Brussels Walking Tour, I was pleasantly surprised at how enjoyable and comprehensive it was!
Global Enterprises definitely kept their promise: a full-on city discovery and a true-blue Belgian feast.
…What more could you possibly ask for? Plus, I can assure you by now that you won’t be missing ANY of the top must-dos with this Brussels walking tour!
To add, our local tour guide, Avo, was extremely knowledgeable! He was a complete history buff because he taught us a lot of new and interesting things — and I thought I already knew everything there is to know about Brussels! But that doesn’t stop there because he was humorous and warm too. In fact, when it was over, I was a bit glum to say goodbye to him and the rest of the people that I was touring with because it was like bidding farewell to new close friends.
To sum it up: I had a fantastic time! And because of that and more, I decided that I wouldn’t want to spoil the fun: I won’t be giving you a ‘blow-by-blow’ detailed account of what we did and what we discussed in this Brussels walking tour, because going by what I experienced, I think it’s better for you to be surprised.
So what I would rather do here is give you a visual ‘peek’ to the experience as I share with you some of the photos that I took from the tour (+ a short video/vlog recap).
