The Brussels 3-Hour Art Nouveau Tour was incredibly informative and a delightful opportunity to see parts of Brussels that I'd not seen. Mary or Marie was the guide, suffused with a clear passion for her subject, showing up ready to deep dive into design by narrating stories of the buildings and their architectural creators, providing photographic examples of the insides of the gems whose outsides we observed, and fielding questions that ranged across time and geography. I've had a number of excellent tours in the recent past, yet Mary was one of the best prepared of the host facilitators. She had me when she started out by setting forth the goals for us that she had by the journey's end. And she succeeded: I left confident I can spot the characteristics of architectural Art Nouveau, and I understand how it differs from other periods, including how it differs from its temporal-adjacent sibling--Art Deco.

Maria explained well, showed her own good photos to supplement, the selection of the buildings was interesting and we liked the duration and the atmosphere very much overall. However, I assumed that we would also be let into at least one of the houses. But that wasn't possible, or we should have booked it ourselves. Nevertheless many thanks!

Nice walk in the city. Too bad that the place of the end of the visit was communicated only the same morning. It was therefore necessary to organize for the return. It would be interesting to indicate the distance to be covered because we were accompanied by a person with restricted mobility and it was long.
