With its 159 embassies and 2500 diplomats, Brussels is the world's second seat of diplomatic representations.

I've so much enjoyed visiting Bruxelles with Sancar as a host. We've learned so many things about the city... I didn't see time go by! The group was small and really nice. I'll recommend the tour to my friends and family.

One of the better Airbnb experiences that I’ve ever done. Sancar was a wonderful host. Can you quite a bit about the city, and was affable and easy to get along with. I would recommend this tour.

Sancar is an amazing guide. Being a local he is well informed and informative. His story telling and energy during the tour was amazing. hHe makes everyone super comfortable, answers all questions and most of all treats us with some of Belgium's finest Pralines! couldn't have asked for more

Nous avons passé un très bon moment avec Sancar. Maintenant nous verrons la grand place de Bruxelles sous un autre oeil. De plus, Sancar nous a conseillé certains restaurants ou lieux à voir et nous avons trouvé tous ces endroits très sympa. Je recommande fortement.
