We had a wonderful tour to Ghent and Bruges! Andrea did a fantastic job providing details on the history and sites of both cities. The coach and ride were comfortable. I only wish we had had more free time in both cities as the 45 minutes was a bit rushed. Definitely recommend this tour!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

It's a good trip but you have to walk a lot about 5 km. on each city. There is a lot to see and both cities are interesting. The guide explain the history of each city.

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.
