Full description

Travel back in time to the golden days of medieval Bruges on this private walking tour through the historical heart of the city. Your guide will share stories of love, glory, and fortune, as well as tales of intrigue, war, and conflict.

After meeting your guide on the main square of Bruges, walk through the medieval heart of the city that includes all the must-visit spots.

The highlights include the Market Square, the Church of Our Lady, St. John's Hospital, the Gruuthuse Palace, the Minnewater (Lake of Love), the Beguinage, Half Moon Brewery, Fish Market, Burg Square, and many more.

Meeting point

Please meet in the main square (Grote Markt) of Bruges. Your guide will wait for you by the statue in the middle of the square with a red umbrella. During the Christmas Market (25 Nov – 8 Jan), we meet in front of the Bruges Beer Experience at the corner of the main square, next to the Belfry. Look out for the guide with the red umbrella. Remember: if it’s not red, it’s not legendary!

We had a very nice walking tour. Bram, our guide, gave us a lot of information about the history of Bruges. He could talk about this very enthusiastically and fascinatingly. We did this tour right at the start of our Bruges weekend, which was very handy, because we were now familiar with Bruges.

As two people with walking disabilities, we booked this tour privately because we can't walk that much. The guide adapted perfectly to our needs and gave us a lot of information garnished with nice stories about Bruges. It was very informative and entertaining! However, Get Your Guide should enable contact with the guide in advance, that would be helpful!

Nice city tour with our family. Group consisted of 13 individuals aged 17 to 84 years. Louis, our guide, was able to tell the history of the city of Bruges in a fascinating way. In our group were persons who were in Bruges for the 5th time, and even they came to places they had not been before.
