The tour guide reminded us of a Mad Professor but he knew all the interesting facts and was guiding in 4 languages. we woulld have loved to have had more time in both towns but the tour did cover the essential sights in the time span allotted. We particularly enjoyed the boat ride. we certainly wouldn't have lnown the best value restaurant and chocolatier in bruges without a guide. what enhanced the trip was getting on well with our fellow travellers from around the world.
Our guide was one of the best guides we have ever had and imparted many fascinating facts throughout the tour. He was guiding in 4 languages and as the recorded guide played through earphones wasn't working he gave a live commentary. His enthusiasm for guiding and his love of Brussels shone through and was interjected with a sense of humour at times. Well worth the money.
