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).

Both the towns are beautiful But there's no need to take the optional boat ride pay extra in Ghent. You'd rather walk and shop around the town.

This tour was really great. It was a very long day but well worth the aching legs and tiredness. The tour started with a pick-up from designated hotels then we set off to Bruges first. Our tour guide, Stefan kept us all engaged and interested with the history of the city. The tour was meant to be Ghent first then Bruges but the tour guide decided to switch things up so that we could see the beautiful lights in Ghent at night. I really liked Bruges and I think I preferred it to Ghent. But both cities are extremely beautiful and bursting with history. There's a lot of interesting historical information to take in and during the tour, we had short bursts of time to do out own thing and explore where we wanted to. Highly recommended. Great way to explore and get information on both cities in a short time.
