Ghent and Bruges Day Trip from Brussels

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). 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.

Great tour with lots to see! Highlights included a boat trip in Bruges and a great tour guide, Lucia. Thanks for a great trip.

Great tour...value for money. The guide was very informative and held everyone together. Boat cruise in Bruges was fun. If you're short on time, great was to enjoy these two beautiful cities.

Great value for money. Great day trip and you see so much. Good balance of touring and free time. In Bruges we got to go on a boat trip, an extra payment of 8 or 9 euro, and worth it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

The towns are beautiful and a must see. The tour guide covered most of the important spots though the pace felt rushed, admittedly because we were trying to cover as much as possible within a short-time. I wish there was more free time as there are just so many things to see.
The optional boat tour at the end of the trip in Bruges was good, but nothing you couldn't see on land. If I were to do the trip again, I would opt to walk around town by myself instead. Though I am sure other people may have different opinions here.

Ghent is cool and all, but you could easily spend the whole day in Bruges. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and could speak any language needed. Our whole day was in both Spanish and English. Very reasonably priced day trip. I would go again and again.
