Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

Explore the best of Ghent and Bruges on your day trip from Brussels

Depart from your Brussels hotel in a spacious, air-conditioned vehicle and get acquainted with your knowledgeable guide during the scenic 1-hour journey to Ghent. Disembark at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city, considered one of Belgium’s most beautiful, and embark on a comprehensive tour with your accomplished guide.

Begin at the sacred structure of St Bavo’s Cathedral, home to late-medieval treasures like the ‘Mystic Lamb’ painting. Delve into the building's rich history by listening to your guide’s commentary (entrance optional) and then embark on an explorative walking tour of Ghent to see the city’s most legendary landmarks.

Meander through charming streets to the Castle of the Counts of Flanders (Gravensteen), St Nicolas’ Church and the ancient port of Graslei as your guide recounts local legends and entertaining anecdotes. After your enriching tour, return to your vehicle and travel to the beguiling city of Bruges to witness more historical wonders.

On arrival, stroll the quaint cobbled streets of the UNESCO-listed city to Minnewater (Lake of Love) and revitalize with lunch at a café overlooking the beautiful body of water (own expense). Afterwards, begin your walking tour of the splendid city and see cultural highlights like the City Hall, Market Square and the Chapel of the Holy Blood.

Opt to see Bruges from a different perspective during an idyllic boat tour of the city’s winding waterways at your own expense. After thorough exploration, return to your comfortable vehicle and relax during the 1.5-hour journey back to Brussels, where the tour concludes.

It really was a nice trip and the tour guide was very pleasant and informative. I spent an hour thoughtfully writing a few hundred words about the trip itself. But, they were lost because the Viator website asked for my password after I clicked 'submit' and did not recover them. I'm not re-writing my review. Sorry. Overall, Viator has be reasonable to work with, but that kind of glitch is very annoying if they expect reviews.
