It was wonderful and very informative. The guide was passionate, tring to give us all the interessent stroies behind the buildings without any waste of time. The explanation was also not about “just listening and nodding”, but was very interactive and even funny with small jokes:) Personally, I think this guide tour is better than Horta museum!

All uphill to start and very little art nouveau but picks up after about an hour. Not being able to see inside any of the houses is frustrating but people should be referred to a website like inside art nouveau which gives you some pictures in and out for various houses. It would be better if you based your walkson different areas like in the art nouveau guide you can buy in the Horta Museum.
