Full day private tour to Antwerp
Antwerp is the city of Rubens and of diamonds and it is the second biggest port in Europe.
My private 8 seater Volkswagen Caravelle takes you to Antwerp where you discover the diamond capital of the world.
Pick-up: at the cruise terminal of Zeebrugge or Antwerp or at a hotel in or around Brussels: within 100 km or 60 miles radius.
Driving from the Zeebrugge cruise terminal to Antwerp is about 80 minutes; from the Antwerp cruise terminal we can start the tour straight away.
During our walking tour we discover the Market Square with Guild Houses, the Cathedral of Our Lady with Peter Paul Rubens' "the Elevation of the Cross" and "the Descent from the Cross", the baroque Jesuit Carolus Borromeus church, the garden of the Museum Plantin Moretus (Unesco heritage) and the shopping area.
Restaurant recommendations can be given for your lunch break : you can go for "haute cuisine" or for simple but delicious mussels with fries.
By car we pay attention to the old harbour, to the Central Station, which is the fourth most beautiful trainstation in the world according to Newsweek, and to a lot of modern architecture, like the Richard Rogers' new Palace of Justice, Zaha Hadid's new Port House and the "Museum aan de Stroom" by Neutelings Riedijk.
After the tour I will take you back to the cruise terminal of Zeebrugge or Antwerp or to your hotel in or around Brussels: within 100 km or 60 miles radius.
Tour duration: 10 hours
