Exploring Antwerp with local tour guide Petra

Me exploring Canada

A couple of years ago, I started leading tourists around in Antwerp. I am a casual guide that does not mainly focus on history and dates. With me, it’s about past, present and future.

I would love to take you on a private tour in Antwerp. I offer the widest choice of guided tours as I tailor my tours completely to your preferences.

Want to see the highlights in record time? No problem! Want to explore the city with me all day long? I can do that too. Organising a pub crawl? I know where they serve the best drinks. And I know all about Belgian beer too. Whatever you wish to learn on your trip to Antwerp, I will provide. My knowledge of Antwerp extends beyond the classical must-sees.

What people say about my tours in Antwerp

Beertour or pubcrawl with Nico

“We asked Petra if she could accompany us on a bar tour in Antwerp. She inquired about our expectations and designed a custom tour that fitted our needs. A date was set. We could not wait any longer and our thirst was satisfied on February 18th 2017. We¬†visited various pubs in various neighborhoods, each with its own culture and history. Petra explained about the backgrounds of these neighborhoods and when walking form one bar to the next, we got extra information on the various sights we encountered. This way, we experienced Antwerp in unique way, combining pleasure with culture and architecture. Thank you, Petra. Our compliments.

“What a great afternoon we had with Petra on the bike! We were with a group of 10 girls for a bachelorette weekend. Petra has shown us super original places in Antwerp, occasionally told a historical story (never too long or too short) that could interest us all. She’s a good storyteller, she’s very enthusiastic and responsive to questions or comments. She even made time for unforeseen stops. An absolute must!”
