According to the program, the planned tour ended at the Antwerp train station, this beautiful monument. We were only four participants and everyone came by train, so our guide Leo spontaneously rescheduled and showed us the harbor district instead of the train station. Here the tour ended. We all liked that very much, especially since there was a nice museum nearby. We can highly recommend this nice, very good English-speaking and life-wise guide.

A fun and exciting way to see the city! Perfect that we could do it in our own pace and even spread it over multiple days. The riddles gave the tour an extra dimension and made it come alive.

Many surprising places in Antwerp show you that you would normally walk past. Knowledgeable guide who, in addition to being able to tell, was in exceptional condition.

Very knowledgeable, humorous and communicative guide - very pleasant atmosphere. In the relatively short time we got a very good insight. Highly Recommended!

The description of the history of the city was really good
