About me

I would be glad to show you the most beautiful corners, buildings, churches, squares and monuments of Brussels; a city I have being living in for about 25 years. As a well-educated Italian with a good knowledge of art history and aesthetics, I will show you the best panoramas and architecture of the city. Of course, I would also be available to present you with other aspects of Belgium and its capital, from different angles such as economy, society, artistic life, European affairs, business climate in Belgium and Brussels, international relations, government matters and any other subjects which may interest you.

Worth it !!

It is really worth it to see the city with a local guide. We saw things that normally we would not have ever seen. Our guide, Andrea, planned a very original, more-than-just-tourist kind of day for us and we really appreciated it. What a difference it makes! It is well worth the money and SO MUCh better than your average bus tour or group tour. We will use this service again and again.

Amazing!

I had an amazing time! My host was incredibly professional and kind and I felt like I was touring a city with a friend. We stopped for chocolates and even sat and people-watched at a cafe. Just an incredible experience! I wish I could find a guide like Andrea at every city i visit.

Andrea was a fantastic host!

Andrea was a fantastic host and a great introduction to the beautiful city of Brussels! Although I had only two hours, he stayed longer and gave me interesting tidbits and insights into the city. I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. He was engaging, interesting, courteous and absolutely wonderful! Please book him if you are lucky enough to visit Brussels!!

We cannot compliment Andrea enough!

We cannot compliment Andrea enough, he was undoubtedly the best tour guide we've ever had! He was well prepared and gave us wonderful insights into the history, architecture and politics of Brussels. His enthusiasm for his city was infectious and we particularly appreciated that he tailored the tour to our requests and then gave us more tips to explore the city and surrounds.
