Walking tour in Brussels

We really enjoyed our private walking tour of Brussels. There were 4 of us visiting Brussels for the first time and this gave us a great overview of the city. Milton was very knowledgeable and worked hard to show us the highlights of Brussels. He also gave us tips on where to get good meals and find some good music. I would highly recommend this tour.

Milton was the ideal guide for our group, which consisted of a 95 year old in a wheel chair, and her 2 granddaughters. He was engaging, knew good details about Brussels without boring us with unnecessary history, and was very patient and repeated himself often with my grandmother, who is hard of hearing and forgetful. He planned the perfect tour showing us the highlights of the city, good places to get the souvenirs we requested, his recommendations for authentic local dinners and Belgian bars, and told us interesting facts along the way, while ensuring our walking paths were direct to where we were going and wheelchair friendly. We only had 2 hours booked with him, but would have happily spent the entire day with him learning about Belgium. Thank you Milton for the wonderful experience!!!

Historic Brussels - City Center

Johnny was a very knowledgeable guide and fantastic in leading us along routes following a timeline of some events, while occasionally walking by eateries and haute chocolatiers to enliven the conversation and the experience on a sunny afternoon. We walked at everyone's pace throughout city center and he knew the right where to lead us when we posed new questions. He is wonderful!

Kickstart Your Trip Experience in Brussels

I was introduced to the city of Brussels (July 5, 2018) by Dr. Andrea Mogni, who was the local guide appointed by City Unscripted for this. It was my first visit both to Brussels and to Belgium, a country I did not know much about. At the end of the day I had been introduced to the basics of Belgian history and culture, as well as to the city of Brussels itself - and had a new understanding of everything surrounding me. Considering how short my stay was (4 days) it would have been highly improbable for me to understand many of the things I saw or was in contact with had it not been for this initial tour with a professional guide. Dr. Andrea Mogni is a living and walking encyclopedia who offered detailed as well as fascinating information concerning both the city and the Belgian environment, in general. I am grateful to Dr. Mogni, as well as to City Unscripted, for this choice of guide and for the personalized experience they offered. I highly recommend taking this type of kickstart tour with City Unscripted, a company that organizes things excellently.
