One of the best ways to see Bruges' sights is by canal boat, and this is included on your Belgium in One Day Sightseeing Tour. Lasting approximately 35 minutes, your Bruges canal ride will take you past the UNESCO World Heritage listed Belfry and Halls (bell tower and market halls) and the famed Bruges Almshouses. Venture inside the Chapel of the Holy Blood, where it's believed Christ's blood was taken after the crusades, before admiring the statue of Madonna with Child by Michelangelo. There will be time for a relaxing a la carte lunch in Bruges before leaving.
The final stop on your Belgium in One Day Sightseeing Tour is the medieval city of Ghent - often referred to as Flanders' unsung city. Sandwiched between Brussels and Bruges, this attractive medieval canal city has been long been overlooked by passing visitors. Although the Saint Bavo Cathedral is impressive from the outside, formidable queues form to see the Adoration of the Mystic Lamb - a masterpiece painted by Jan Van Eyck. See the 14th-century World Heritage-listed belfry rising from the old cloth hall, admire the towers of the medieval Gravensteen castle and closer to hand, the Graslei; the most photographed waterfront promenade with its magnificent guild houses.

This is a nice way to get a flavor for three cities outside of Brussels in one day. Don't expect a lot of time to explore-- just enjoy the trip for what it is-- a lot of great places in one day. Make sure Mark is your guide!

WOW! This was an awesome day....we met Jen our guide and were very pleased to discover it was only the two of us, a friend of his from Turkey, and himself....a private tour......
It was cool and raining, so Jn suggested we bypass going to Ostend and start in Ghent and see if the weather improved....Took us to the train station and we boarded immediately. Made it to Ghent by 9:30 and started the tour. hopped a train to the center and were amazed. Great info and history. stopped at the smallest bar and had ChocoMel. A great warmer on a cold day....qcontinued on tour and headed back to train station. hopped a train to Brugges. Arrived in 30 minutes.
Walked and took a canal ride, saw awesome sites. Visited a flea market and bought a terra cotta and glass tile bowl for 20 Euro!!!!
Had a great lunch of Finnish stew and frites. With mayonnaise of course! yummy! Continued through Brugges for several hours and then headed back to station. Jen gave us the option to head to Ostend, weather still rainy, or back to Brusells and a short tour there. we chose back to Brussells. Awesome day, guide, food, info, EVERYTHING. best thing, we paid for nothing all day except for the bowl!,,
