Finally we did it - due to a friend arriving from the UK, UP Front at last took a tour bus trip around Brussels. And, yes, it was freezing...
Sitting on the top deck in the cold has its compensations though, as you get much better views of the city, its buildings and monuments, including Parc Cinquantenaire, the Bourse, the European Parliament and, of course, the Atomium.
Several companies operate the tours and the price is just shy of €20 for adults - although you do get to keep the dinky little headphones that go with the multi-lingual commentary. The tickets are valid for 24 hours so you can get on and off when you want - essential given that buses don’t actually stop in Grand’Place or at the Mannekin Pis. You have to get off and walk...
Value-wise, we reckon it’s just about worth the price, especially if you have a guest in town.
