What To Expect

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.

You will save Money and time because you are going to historical places in both cities. Also the tour guide knew about everything.

The tour is good if you have limited time and want to know these 2 beautiful cities. The trip is well organized regarding the times. Nevertheless, don't expect much about the explanations of the landmarks, history of the cities, recommendations, etc.

This tour, without a doubt, covers some of the prettiest and most interesting spots of Belgium outside Brussels. The tour guide is friendly and provide detailed information.Be aware, however, this trip has a lot of walking. It is NOT designed for seniors or folks with walking difficulties. In this full-day trip, we were walking for 1 full hour, non-stop, for about 3 - 4 times. I was travelling with my family and my elderly parents, and needless to say, it created a bit of physical stress for both of them. We also travelled during the Christmas holidays, so be prepare for slippery grounds, uncomfortable winter boots, and lots of people!

We were very happy that we booked this tour. Both Ghent and Bruges were awesome. Our guide spoke perfect English. He was very informative, entertaining and helpful. It is a full day trip, returning at 7PM, (19:00). We did have some free time at the end in both towns but there is so much to see. The tour involves a lot of walking, 11,000 steps on a Fitbit. We highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in European history and wants to see UNESCO World Heritage sites.

Both towns are nice and we really enjoyed it a lot. The tour guide is friendly and explaining a lot of history and showing us a lot of insight of the town.. a lot of walking though but worth it.We were lost on the last 2 hours of the Tour, thank god the guide has already explained where we meet if we lost, so we managed to catch up w the bus to go back Brussels safely! This tour is worth a visit, especially Bruges, personally likes it more.:)

The tour was ok, but two points.1) I had to wait for the bus for half an hour in the cold rain.2) The cafe offered by the guide was a disgusting place with high prices.
