Jan Swerts is a great guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour of Brussels and saw lots more than we ever expected to. We had been on a three-hour bus tour the day before and had seen most of the major spots (from the bus) but Marc took us to some places that most tourists (and many locals) never get to see. It was informative and interesting. It was also a great chance to revisit places that we hadn't stopped at on the bus tour. We opted for a coffee instead of a beer and Marc's choice of cafe was great. His recommendation of the best place to buy Belgian chocolates was backed up with a taste of the very best chocolate ever... we even found our way back there afterwards to indulge in a small bag to take home. Well done Marc... great tour!
