Such a cool day trip from Amsterdam, I definitely recommend, as you get to see the Brussels city centre with a walking tour and the bus also goes to the Atomium! The guide was really good, and I recommend trying the cherry beer (it actually is super red) :D You also get enough free time in Brussels on this day trip which I appreciate since I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything :D

It was a lovely tour and our guide was fantastic. It just felt a bit rushed sometimes but this is the name of the game. Word of advice- do not go the restaurant for lunch (you only have an hour in that place)…. just get a quick bite on the go so you have more time exploring. That was my mistake when i did my tour.. Have fun coz it’s amazing tour

It's worth it. The trip does not feel heavy, it does not start so early and without that it is well used. The chocolate making demonstration is also very interesting, but keep in mind that it takes one hour and there is less time left to go freely. For my taste, Mount View was missing, possibly the best view of the palace and towards the Plaza Mayor, but we did not have the info and I realized it late.
