Free (or almost free) tours in Brussels.
First of all, let us be clear, there are no real “Free tours” or free visits in Brussels.
Indeed, in Brussels, unlike France and other European countries, the tourist office does not organise guided tours and does not subsidise tourist guides to organise real free visits or Free tours.
What we call “free visits” or “free tours” are actually guided tours in which the guide expects remuneration in a “pay what you want” mode. This means that at the end of the tour, the client pays the guide according to his appreciation and what he considers fair. There is no minimum or maximum to give to the guide. The contribution is really voluntary.
Having made this clarification, you will find below the three best free tours in Brussels.
