Description of the company

Created at the end of 2018, Brussels by Foot is a small company offering alternative guided tours. The aim is to help anyone who wants to discover the real Brussels of the real Brusseleirs (foreign, Belgian or even Brussels tourists). If you are interested in the project and would like to work as a guide with us, then you’ve come to the right place!

So far Brussels By Foot offers 2 different tours (soon 3), each one is given every weekend in French, English, Dutch and, for private groups only, Spanish. We can also create tailor-made tours for groups who ask us for it. The objective of this new position is to reinforce our team of Dutch speaking guides (composed of only one guide so far :-P). Candidates must be self-employed or be affiliated to the SMart in order to be able to invoice.
