Great tour, COVID 19 scary
Osvaldo_S, May 2022
The positive: visited places and explanations five stars. The terrible: 50 people in a bus for a total of 3 1/2 hours with no mask use (obligation by authorities) reinforced despite our complain. Very irresponsible by guide and some fellow tourists coughing and sneezing

Poor Tour Guide Support
VincentL, May 2022
We joined the tour to Brugge and Ghent. While the tour guide spent a lot of time explaining the various attractions, he then require us to rush to the other stops to make up for the time. We are 60+ so we cannot keep to this walking pace. Also we did not have enough time for lunch. We also had to find our own way to the meeting place from the town center and was late as we got lost The tour did not wait for us and we missed the second part to Ghent. The tour guide should have meet us in the city Centre and bring us out. I see so many other tour guides doing this. This is poor service and attitude to leave your customer behind. Weather is cold and my wife was too chilled.

Fairytale village!
JoAnn_M, May 2022
Bruges is a fairytale village. I would recommend a full day trip and skip Ghent. Our guide on the bus was very hard to understand.
Walking is touring. Suck it up buttercup
Cynthia_M, May 2022
Mark was great. Explained everything I and others asked. More patient than I! Self absorbed passengers are irritating. Just saying
Good combination of two great destinations into one day
Dawn_B, May 2022
Mark was a great guide on this comprehensive journey to two good destinations. Both Bruges and Ghent are worth a day trip but Mark and his team did a good job of providing the highlights of both in a one day trip. We enjoyed seeing and learning about the main sights in each town and then having about half the time for our free use. With our guide’s input we were able to find good meals and highlights to visit.
Beautiful places which are a must to visit
Yossi_V, May 2022
Everything was just perfect and on time. Perhaps some more free time in Bruges would be nice. Don't miss out on the waffles in Bruges.
Good tour if you are limited on time
Brandy_H, May 2022
I only had so much time to sight see while in Belgium for work and wanted to hit both cities so this tour was good for that purpose. It was very convenient to have the tour group handle all the travel and showed you some highlights of each place. That being said it really is not enough time. You are very rushed and there really isnt a ton of extra time to explore on your own after the history part of the tour is over. This tour should probably be longer to a lot for a little more time for people. Plus it was very busy the day I went so I felt like some time got wasted sitting in traffic trying to get into Bruges and that should be accounted for. I paid to to see the tour not to sit in traffic. So overall Im glad I went because now I know what I need to come back and see on my own time when I'm back in town, but if you want a more relaxed tour I would only do one city a day to take your time and enjoy it.

Jamal, the tour guide, is very knowledgeable and made this tour fascinating. He is also punctual, making this tour a bit at a faster pace.
Great tour
LorraineKelly, May 2022
We did the English speaking tour. Our guide was very nice, he gave a great overview of both cities, their history and buildings. We had 60-90 mins free time in each city after the guided tour. Highly recommend this tour to see 2 beautiful cities in 1 day.
