Tour Guide


Antwerp is NOT a hellhole. And its surroundings even less. Touring is allowed, but only when all Covid19 safety measures are taken into account. Please contact me and we'll work something out together so all can enjoy a safe and comfortable tour!

"Every tour has to be an experience!"

In our digital world people can make a tour of their own or visit museums, just guided by an app. But an app, even a good one, is just an app. Guide 53 takes you with him into an interactive story, where the 'experience' is important: an educational tour, fun, swift and, foremost, custom-made for the visitor!

Guide 53 loves to take you on one of his walks or tours: the old SS Camp of Breendonk, Tongerlo Abbey and its famous Da Vinci painting, the Mayer van den Bergh Museum in Antwerp where Mad Meg dwells or the German trenches from WWI to the nort of Antwerp and many more!

Tours are provided in 3 languages: Dutch, English and French. Prices can be found in the price section.
