My Triple.co Review
My Triple.co review is from the perspective of a tourist and I am really delighted to share my experience of the Brussels Highlight Tour. The team over in Triple hooked me up with a personalised Brussels adventure with local historian, Jacob. Originally from the Netherlands, Jacob recently became an official historian and has been running his own tours of the city for the past few years.
Using Triple is really easy: All you need to do is to find an activity that you like the sound of and then make a booking request to the host. The host needs to accept your request within 48 hours (2 days, so plan ahead!) for it to become an active booking. But don’t worry, no money is charged before the host has accepted the booking. And then off you go!
When I booked with Jacob, we had some back and forth about what route to take and where we should start. I loved how personalised it was and it was a much more pleasant experience than just joining a run of the mill tour with dozens of other tourists.
What makes my Triple.co review unique is that I actually had lived in the city that I took the tour in. I was interested to see how knowledgable they actually were about the city or if they just took you to the tourist traps. Turns out Jacob really knew Brussels and I discovered plenty of new parts of the city.
I would highly recommend asking to start at the Basillica of Koekelberg if you get a day time slot. Every time I wanted to go, I was too late as last entry is around 16:00. It looks really beautiful, so you should check that out. For more ideas on what to see, check out my 48 Hours in Brussels guide, it is jam packed with the best of the best.
If you don’t know anything at all about Brussels, just trust in your guide to bring you to the interesting places of the city. Be honest if you love the touristy spots to get some great photos – these people want you to have the best trip possible. I would also advise that if you are not interested in a 3 hour trip, to mention that when booking. I’m sure they can be flexible with the tour lengths if it’s a private tour, like Jacob’s in Brussels.
If you have been on or decide to go on a tour, please share your Triple.co review with me! I’d love to hear about the other trips for my next European city break.
