What people are saying about Grand-Place

It was amazing but unfortunately my girlfriend enjoyed the experience so much she decided to stay there and start a new life. We have decided to try long distance but she seems to be spending most of her time in mini Paris and I’m starting to worry she has a new mini boyfriend but I’m sure I’m being paranoid….anyway long story short I really enjoyed it and the turtle was very nice unlike the turtle in mini Europe in Budapest who was very tall and mildly threatening

We thoroughly enjoyed the trip. As we were the only two booked on that day our guide made a lot of effort to personalise the tour for us. We gained a huge amount of helpful knowledge about the best places to go in the city.

This was a great tour! Our guide was informative and very interesting. The tour moved at a nice pace and the make your own at the end was fun! I highly recommend this tour.

A team at the top, very nice and pleasant.. A great discovery of both chocolates and the city. To do without hesitation... Recommended...

Nice display of European monuments, very good information on how to move, excellent interaction for kids and adults.
