Loved this tour! The guide was awesome and both Ghent and Bruge are beautiful places worth seeing.
Traveling with 3 small kids, the tour guide and bus driver did everything they could to make our trip enjoyable. We loved hearing about the history of the areas we visited, the lunch recommendation in Bruges was tasty, and the boat tour was the highlight of our trip!
This is a very comprehensive tour of both towns, and both are lovely. It is also a very long day. Our guide was very well-informed and helpful. There is much to absorb and a great deal of walking at a fairly rapid pace over uneven cobblestone streets.
We found it difficult to keep up. Nevertheless, if you are not jet-lagged and interested in highlights of these two beautiful places, this is the perfect introductory tour. We liked Brugge so much that we will return for a few nights at a later date. My recommendation: take the 30 minute canal ride in Brugge. It is an additional 8E, but provides a beautiful and insightful perspective on this place.
Excellent tour. Met all our expectations. The guide was very good.
Great day out, our guide was friendly and informative. I would recommend this outing.
Wow! Great tour and Jan the guide was great. Both cities were wonderful. They had a nice mix of guided tour and free time.
This was an excellent tour and is highly recommended. We had a wonderful guide Jan, who was really knowledgable, friendly and enthusiastic and ensured that everyone had a wonderful time on the tour.
amazing tour, the guide Yohen was so friendly and nice, he had enough informations for both cities, Brugge is really worth to visit, a quite place and lovely tour. the driver was also very nice, he dropped us exactly to the location when we completed. I mostly recommend this tour for anyone that wants to visit Belgium.
Tour guide was friendly and explained things in an interesting and fun way.
Excellent leader and careful driver. Leader walked at considerate pace for all and was very knowledgable about both places we visited. He had an easy, approachable style. An excellent day trip!
Both the guide and the driver were excellent. The walking tours and free time were just right. One suggestion: give us a small map of each town before we go off on our own. Love both cities.
Brilliant trip! Everything ran to time, the guide was excellent, Ghent and Bruges were beautiful!! They even picked us up from our hotel in Brussels, I couldn't have asked for more. This is my second time booking a tour through Viator my first trip was in Ireland and I am very happy with both tours. Thank you.
P.S. Do take the boat trip in Bruges, its an extra 8 euro but its well worth it :
Very knowledgeable and pleasant tour guide, excellent driver, comfortable bus. Great tour!
Beautiful day trip to both Ghent and Bruges. A bit disorganized in the beginning but everything seemed to have been sorted out later. We had a bit of a rough start with you guide who was upset about the disorganization but then her manners improved and the day went by. Regardless, this was still a lovely trip with plenty of time to wonder around on your own.
Fantastic tour - the tour guide was very knowledgable and knew her history on the areas of Ghent and Bruges and made things very clear for everyone. Would totally recommend this tour if in the area.
Great tour. Ghent and Bruges are wonderful places and if in Brussels you should definitely spend a day here.
Both Ghent and Bruges are amazing cities...as if they have never changed in 400 years!
When booking this trip,I booked with Viator thinking I was on an English speaking tour.Unfortunately Jan our multi lingual guide had to display all his skills with a no. of nationalities.
Jan was an excellent guide and the trip was very rewarding.
We were kept waiting for more than 30mins due to a couple being late caught in traffic etc etc.This is unfortunate but at the same time re-assuring 'caus it could have been me.
I would certainly recommend this day trip but not for those who have limited walking ability
A very worthwhile tour, Bruges was stunning! We liked that you could opt in and out from the tour guides input and do your own thing. We would recommend booking the boat trip in Bruges with the guide as you fast track the lines.
