Very interesting walk despite the rain that accompanied us throughout our journey. The boat trip with Captain Marc was tinged with humor and stories, a perfect mix. Anne, our guide in French, was very interesting and invested in making us discover and love the city to the point of wanting to come back.

Ann did a great job in showing us around Bruges. She is extremely knowledgeable in many details of the city. As she grew up in Bruges, this explains how passionate and educated she is about this charming city. We highly recommend having Ann show you around Rich and Lisa B (from New Jersey)

We particularly enjoy the walking tour with our guide Theo, he was so knowledgeable and made our trip to Bruges fantastic. The canal tour was also brilliant but I could have listened to Theo for hours plus he took the trouble to walk us to our waiting taxi at the end. Highly recommend and an excellent price
