With Belgian beer, chocolate and art, Belgium has something of interest for every visitor. Check out Brussels, on this day trip from Amsterdam, and learn about all-things Belgian from a guide. A visit to a chocolatier is included. There will be a photo stop at the Atomium, admire the iconic statue of Manneken Pis in Brussels and make the most of ample free time to shop for those all-important Belgian chocolates.
The Brussels Tour starts in Amsterdam’s city center. From there you’ll travel to Brussels by bus, and an expert guide will provide fun and informative information about the sights along the way. The Belgium Tour continues on to Brussels, the French- and Dutch-speaking capital. There will be a photo stop at the Atomium, an iconic futuristic building that was originally built for the World Fair in 1958 and is now a major tourist attraction. The Belgium Tour continues on to see the Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the Royal Palace, and the Congress Column, with its famous ‘Tomb of the Unknown Soldier’. After this, there will be a guided walk through the historic city center, where you’ll visit the beautiful central square (‘Grand Place’) and the iconic statue Mannekepis. Along the way, you will get a demonstration by a chocolatier and get the change to taste some famous Belgian chocolate. With the top sights seen, you then have over two hours of free time to explore on your own or perhaps shop for souvenirs. It’s also a good opportunity to grab lunch, or perhaps treat yourself to some of Belgium’s famous chocolate and beer. Food, drinks and any entrance fees are at your own expense. Later, at the prearranged time, return to your coach and relax on the 2.5-hour journey to Amsterdam. Your tour finishes back at the start point in the evening.
