A very enjoyable tour given by a passionate and knowledgeable guide who was born and raised in Brussels. Using the bikes, which were of good quality and very well maintained, allowed us to see normal life happening in some of the different areas of the city and it was extremely refreshing to escape the over crowded tourist traps in the centre. The guide was also rather pleasing on the eye which added to the enjoyment of the experience Would definitely recommend taking this unique tour of Brussels!

Interesting, insightful and experienced tour with Philippe as our guide. Despite exploring the city for 3 days prior, we were taken to and told the history of areas that you may not visit otherwise. Gave an insiders view of the city within the backdrop of it's history. Phillippe left a lasting impression on us and was very amenable with our requests. The bikes were well maintained and easy to ride- even up hill! I would recommend this cycling tour as a must if you visit Brussels.

We were a group of 6 people and had a lot of fun! Our guide was great I highly recommend Brussels by bike! You get to know the city well in 3.5 hours and get a lot of information!

Our guide Michele was awesome! He gave us a great tour if the city, took us to places we might not have otherwise ventured to, and gave us a good bit of history.

Nice group. Good, experienced and entertaining guide. You saw an awful lot in that time. I can only recommend.
