Full description
Explore Bruges on a walking tour with a local guide. Join a boat cruise along the canals to see the sites from the water. Meet your guide in the Markt for a guided tour of the city. Discover the narrowest street, the beautiful 12th-century basilica, and the golden statues on the impressive courthouse. Next, explore the fish market surrounded by 126 columns. Then, embark on the second part of the tour. Board your boat at the quay for a cruise along the canals. Sail beside ivy-covered facades and under bridges as you learn about the beautiful sites from your captain. Admire the old trading houses at the former harbor and the Beguinage. After half an hour on the water, head to the secret garden of an almshouse, where you will be surprised by the beauty of picturesque Bruges.

We can totally recommend this tour. Our German-speaking and very personable tour guide Anna was great. We not only learned a lot about Bruges, but also about life in Belgium. We were a very comfortable group of seven. Anna took a lot of time for us. She took us around the city for much longer than two hours. Again a big thank you to her.

The combination of boat tour and walking tour was very good to get a good insight into the city in a short time frame. But some details were too much. A short reference to what you can watch later alone would have been better. It was good that it was only a small group (6 people). With more people you can hardly follow - especially since the tour was bilingual.

The tour was a good mix of walking and boating. The guide spoke good German, explained things in an interesting way and left time for the impressions. Unfortunately, the boatman could hardly be understood over the microphone in four languages, the acoustics were bad. The tour is entertaining and recommendable.
