Most walking tours are very early in the morning, with paid ones later. So you end up wandering around towns at eight thirty in the morning, full of delivery lorries, smelly bags of rubbish besides rubbish carts and completely void of life. We found out more than once, that if you ignore the optional coach trips at an average cost of £55 each and go back to the towns later in the day, you'll often find a vibrant cafe culture, open shops and people, yes people and no rubbish carts.

This was a walking tour and though the sights were wonderful, we were kept at such a pace it seemed more like a forced march! Exhausting!

The walking tour through Antwerp was a very pleasant surprise. We did not know much about the city and felt very comfortable there. Part of our reason for taking this tour was the excursion to Bruges but Antwerp was an unexpected joy.

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. Read Less

Our ship docked in Vlissingen from 9:00am to 2:00pm. We left the ship for the day and toured the countryside and then Antwerp, we re-met the ship when it docked the same day in Antwerp @ 7:00PM. Our guide was George Depoorter, which was our favorite guide of the entire trip. Fun,informative,well prepared,simply the best. Would HIGHLY recommend George. E-mail george.depoorter@skynet.be. We toured the countryside which was very nice although we had just missed the Tulips. Visited Middleburg a pretty older city. Toured Antwerp which was pretty cool in and of itself. Did all the highlights and learned a lot. Great day and Guide. Read Less
