Good value for money, the 2 routes cover a large area of Brussels and most of the major attractions. I gave it 4 stars because the buses didn't run very frequently and weren't always reliable. Also it wasn't always clear where to find the attraction once you got off at the appropriate stop.

To see everything in 1 day in a relatively quick and reasonably affordable way, hop-on hop-off is a very good option. The children can hear the history of the city in their own mother tongue. Super!!!

Very nice and helpful driver. The routes lead through the city in a varied way. This gives you an impression of how people live in Brussels.

Good opportunity to see the sights that are a bit off the beaten path. Unfortunately, it takes a while until the next bus leaves.

Picked up just outside our Hotel (Thon) - didn’t get to do both routes but would have if I had more time.
