Don’t waste your layover in Brussels waiting at the airport - how dull. Instead, join one of our local Brussels hosts on a short but sweet (we’re not just talking about the chocolate you’ll inevitably eat) journey around Brussels.

Based on your travel itinerary, you can squeeze in some of Brussels iconic sites like Sint-Michiels Kathedraal and iconic statues and monuments like the cheeky Mannekin Pis, or immerse yourself in a local neighborhood to get to know how the locals live.

Your time is precious so spend it exactly how you want to! The hours will fly by as you enjoy a local meal after strolling through the streets, skipping out on the tourist traps that your host will help you avoid.

An airport Belgian waffle just won’t taste the same as one freshly made in a local cafe, will it? With plenty to see, taste and do, your host can’t wait to show you around beautiful Brussels, no matter how flying your visit.
