 The tour Celebrity Brussels takes you on the trail of some emblematic characters who have marked the history of the city (for good or ill).

Thus, during a pleasant walk out of the classic circuits, you will get acquainted with the dikkeneks (loudmouths) and kweebus (crazy, twisted) of History …

The characters presented are very varied and eclectic :

  • Audrey Hepburn
  • Stromae
  • André Vésale
  • Bonom
  • Madame Chapeau

* Voluntary cost, what does that mean?

It means that you decide the price you pay, fully aware of different things:
– The experience you’ve just had;
– The professionalism of the guide and the quality of the tour;
– The support you want to give to the project.

What do we do with the money we receive?
– We pay the fixed costs (taxes, advertising, web hosting, …) ;
– We pay ourselves;
– We develop new projects, visits, new activities;
– We drink beers, of course 😉

… “Voluntary cost” does not mean “free” ! As sadly we have our bills to pay.
