This is more than a sightseeing trip. The concept of this tour is that your visit becomes a highly personalized experience. We travel in small groups (> 10 & < 20 pax).
Bruges is really the most enchanting city of Belgium. During the drive to Bruges your expert guide will explain the ins and outs of the rise and fall of the city. Then he takes you to the beguinage. We call at Europe’s oldest Saint John’s hospital. Guided visit of the Church of our Lady with the tombs of the Dukes of Burgundy, the Madonna by Michelangelo, painting by Caravaggio. Passing the museum of the Flemish primitives we walk to the Belfry Tower on the Market Square, the Burg Square with the Town Hall and visit to the upper and lower Basilica of the Holy Blood… Time for a refreshment: a short beer tasting session followed by an (optional) set lunch in a restaurant with view of the Belfry and the medieval market square.

The tour guide was excellent and really customize his tour/talks to the group. .Brugge was lovely despite rain. My only negative was the very long walk to bus uphill from the Brussels tour Company Center to our tour bus. They should drop pick-up customers at the bus itself.

We really enjoyed this tour! My husband, two kids ages 11 and 8, and I really enjoyed visiting Bruges. Our tour guide, Andrea, was wonderful and explained history to us as we drove thru Brussels, the countryside, and Belgium. In Bruges we walked while Andrea gave us a tour of the city, we had free time to explore and she arranged a canal bus ride for our group. We also had lunch in Bruges, typical Belgium food, it was good. The bus ride was comfortable and safe. Thanks!

The office staff worked on all our tickets and we found the meeting points as they were so helpful. We enjoyed seeing the windmill in action, the cheese making and tasting and the clog making were also enjoyable experiences of my first visit to Amsterdam.

Tour guide was informative and Brugge was beautiful. Tour wasn't much more than taking the train so pricing was good. Only suggestion- since I was travelling by myself I was nervous about losing the group- it would have been helpful to have a cell number to call or someway to coordinate if someone got lost.

Everyone who goes to Belgium must go to BRUGES!!! it's beautiful, it leaves you speechless all the beauty you can find in this town. Since the lake and little houses, to the most beautiful scenes from the boat tour in the canals. I highly recommend the restaurant VIVALDI, delicious food at not high prices. Of course don't leave Bruges without tasting a good beer and some sweet food like Belgian waffles or ice cream. Best season to go, SPRING. =)

The guide was excellent! He was very friendly and stuck around the group even when there was free time to answer questions or share fun facts about Bruges. He kept the tour moving at a good place and there was a nice balance of touring with the group and free time to have a look. There was also a boat tour offered, however, it was addtional charge of about 7 Euros, pay the money and go on the boat tour!! Highly recommend this tour!
