Brussels: Bus Tours
The Smallest World-City
Brussels spoils travellers for choices when it comes to site seeing. The Grand Place is the most famous sightseeing attraction in all of Brussels, followed by the 1619 statue, Manneken Pis. Hop on and off bus tours run frequently, stopping at all of Brussels’s major sights and costs about €18. Half day tours by coach are also available, as are private tours. You can be chauffeured through the streets by a knowledgeable driver. The tour lasts three hours. If you plan to visit a few of the main sites save money with a Brussels Card. The Brussels card gives you access to 24 museums, free public transport (buses, trams, and metros), and discounts in selected shops/restaurants and is available in Dutch, German, French and English. Walking tours are also very popular in Brussels. A four hour guided tour with a local guide will point out Brussels' major sites, history and pay a visit to a master chocolatier. Brussels also offers a chocolate tour which includes a 45 minute hands on chocolate workshop. Meet up outside the Godiva shop at 9:00 am. Biking tours of the city (4 hours) are also a great way to take in the best of Brussels.
