Brussels
City Tour Rating: 4.0 out of 5+
Well informed guide with a quirky sense of humour;told the political situation as he saw it.He was easy to understand. The tour was very representative of Brussels. The artisanal chocolate factory was great.Enjoyed the whole tour even though it rained

Another well informed guide who was also easy to understand.We did a coach tour around the city, followed by a tour of a boutique beer brewery. We then did a walking tour of the old town, which ended at the Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal. Here we were given in depth information about the symbolism and style of Rubens, who has 4 masterworks in the cathedral.

After lunch we walked back to the MAS Museum, and went to the top to see the excellent view of the city from the top of the museum.

We found our guide's English hard to understand. However we did enjoy the cathedral and the Museum with Roman artefacts.It was great to see Eau de Cologne everywhere in the shops .

On the second day here we sailed to Konigswinter where we took a cogwheel train to the top of the mountain to the Drachenfels ruin. We also visited the castle on the way back.

We also visited the Neanderthal Man Museum near Cologne

We certainly had a very representative tour here of the city sights, followed by a walking tour. I think if you had trouble walking don't try the walking tour, as we were very tired at the end.
