I really loved doing the tour, but I would have liked longer to explore on my own without the tour guide sometimes I felt rushed but apart from that the tour was great x

The coach was very comfortable and walking tours were very entertaining! There was a lot of information presented in an easy to understand format with a multilingual guide and just the right amount of walking and breaks to appreciate Ghent and Brugges and its local food. :

Daniel was a great tour guide and had so much good information about the cities and the country in general. The bus left on time and was easy to find. While I could've spent more time in Ghent, I agree that the priority should be Bruges. These are 2 fantastic cities to visit and I would recommend it to everyone.

What a great day. Both towns are equally beautiful, Bruges has more to see but is more tourist orientated. I would like to return to Ghent to spend a weekend there. The tour was informative and did not feel overly rushed. The travel tie was not as bad as what I expected. Just take a book for the bus.

This tour was excellent. Our guide, Jan, was very informative and patient with our large group. The amount of free time we had was ample for both cities. The Vivaldi restaurant we went to in Bruges was pricy, but delicious and worth it for the 70 Euro lunch for two - which included, appetizer, entrees and beer we did not have to eat dinner that evening......

Me and my wife were very pleased with this tour. Our tour guide was nice and stated briefly the facts of both cities. We also got some time free and the bruges boat trip was awesome. The song in the PK movie was shot here and we were glorified to see those places.......
