    Brussels is under-rated

    I LOVED BRUSSELS. Everyone is so wonderful and the food was gorgeous. Sandeman's tour was the greatest tour I have been on and it made me appreciate Brussels and Belgium.

    Is a beatiful place that you can visit in a day and a half, there are many lovely and awesome places that you can visit. Eating chocolate is something that no one can miss.

    Loved Belgium

    A lot of people told me that Belgium is super boring but I loved every bit of it. Certainly, Brussels is no NYC or even Amsterdam but there's a ton of stuff to do depending on your interests. I live in NYC, so I love to visit places that are really beautiful and quiet and I really appreciated Belgium for being just that.

    Brussels is a lovely stop along the way! Definitely don't need more than 2 days to get a feel for what it's all about! Amazing fries & chocolate are their thing! The square at night is beautiful! Get lost in the city centre and explore everything it has to offer!

    Love, love, loved Brussels. Such a cool city. We went for a weekend which was definitely a good amount of time to see and enjoy everything. I'm a huge Audrey Hepburn fan and this was where she was born, so it was definitely on my list.

    Insider Tip:The Cheesecake factory was a great place to eat. Reasonable prices and delicious food. The Delerium Cafe was also a must-go.
