What you’ll do

Think of this personalized experience with one of our hosts like spending the day with a friend. You’ll join one of our local Brussels hosts and immerse yourself in the city to discover what it’s all about.

Maybe you’ll sip Belgian brews, indulge in pralines and truffles, see cheeky statues (Mannekin Pis, we mean you), discover the iconic sights and some hidden gems which only a local could show you.

Let your host know what you feel you’ll enjoy and they’ll try to make it happen!

Why not pop into the eclectic shops or galleries or maybe even your host's favorite cafe for a Belgian treat - did somebody say waffles?

No matter your preference, budget or dietary requirements, there's something for you to enjoy in Brussels, and your host can’t wait to share it with you.

Wonderful experience.

Joel was early, upbeat and personable, a pleasure to talk to, well versed in the city as an informed resident, and provided us with a great ‘Brussels in a day’ experience. He was able to answer all questions we had and didn’t spend too much time going on and on with stories (although was willing to if asked) so had more time to really canvas the city with a local. Joel also emailed us before the trip to make sure his tour was what we were looking for, which was a nice touch. If you’re looking for a nice walk through all of the main sites of Brussels, plus a nice stroll through more non ‘touristy’ areas (better restaurant choices, art galleries and shopping too)... make sure you buy a pair of comfortable shoes and ask for Joel!

Leisurely Introduction to City

Joel was our host in Brussels for a four hour walking tour around his favourite parts of the central city. We managed to cover 15 km during this time, which introduced us to different neighbourhoods and took us past famous sights, finishing in Grand Place. We would thoroughly recommend Joel as a host for City Unscripted when you visit Brussels.
