I have taken at least a half dozen walking tours and this has been my favorite. Anna was not only very informative, but she was very passionate and helpful. Unlike some guides that seem to have a well rehearsed "shtick", Anna genuinely cared about her tour group and that we were having a good time. She answered all our questions and did a fantastic job bringing Antwerp to life. Highly recommended.
Had an awesome tour with Luc while in Antwerp. I’ve gone on free walking tours in at least 10 European cities and this was my favorite. Luc was passionate and informed, engaging and fun. I’m really happy we went with this company in particular over some of the companies that have much broader reach (tours all over Europe) but less expertise and heart.
We had a fantastic tour with our lovely guide Anna and would highly recommend this free walking tour which will bring you to special places you usually might not see as a tourist.
Anna, you are doing a brilliant job, we really enjoyed the time with you, your knowledge and tips. 5 stars!
