Guest reviews about Etienne

Main sights with non-classic stories

With my 9 years old along Etienne is patience & he made the walk interesting not only for adults but also for my boy. We enjoyed the tour guided by Etienne, he is very knowledgeable. He brought us to locations that probably normal tour would not cover. Highly recommended!

Main sights with non-classic stories

We enjoyed the tour very much, the guide is very knowledgeable, he described the history of the town in brief to give us a clear picture of what it has been through. we also visited various places, some of which we might not have found on our own. It was a worthwhile experience!

Thank you Etienne for such a knowledge filled and interesting walking tour! We were very impressed by your knowledge of small details and nuggets of information that set the tour apart from a regular hop-on hop-off tour of the city. We are going home much more wiser about our own city.

Etienne is a deeply informed guide - we could immediately tell he truly enjoyed his city and was curious about its every story. He was warm, friendly and also amusing! He patiently answered our every question. He told us the big, grand narrative of the city, and then he made it come alive with small nuggets of information and tiny details that we would not have come across otherwise. A beautiful day altogether :)

Etienne is like a story book! Knows everything about Antwerp: history, culture, architecture. It's quite expected since he has so many passions in such varied fields: engineering, basketball, photography - a very cultivated person! The tour with him started on top of the MAS museum, with a great and impressive view topped with hundreds of stories about each corner, building, or water of the city. And he's a good storyteller as well, keeping your attention undivided, as he does a 360 degrees round of Antwerp from above. After we got the big picture, we went to explore some hidden gems, and discovered a very old loft, where the Natzis used to have their office in. After this, we knew exactly where to head next and decided very easily what highlights we want to see in the city. He knew so many details about the evolution of the building, the reasons why each piece was at its place, I was very impressed. In the end we chilled with a coffee in a very nice place near in the area, where he usually goes. By the way, expect some good jokes, he's a quite funny guy :) Thank you Etienne, it was a pleasure meeting you!

I want to go on all tours with Etienne! Professional, curious and an interesting story teller he showed us whole Antwerp from the roof of MAS museum. That was a great way for us to plan our next days in Antwerp - very great experience when you just arrive to the city!
