Gérard a brilliant guide, history with a capital H and anecdotes. A good tip to do the visit as soon as you arrive so that you can take full advantage of your walks and wanderings. There were 4 of us, including my parents, 87 and 85, Gérard showed a lot of patience.

The tour of three was very informed. Hein, our guide, told us a lot of the most interesting things about the history of Bruges, showed us historical places and knew some episodes to tell. The tour was very expensive, but absolutely recommendable! Thanks to our city guide Hein. Many thanks!

It has been an incredible experience, Louis has been the best guide that has been able to accompany us, the city is wonderful and at his side the guide has been even better. It has been prepared with many historical data, a photo album and above all charisma and kindness to leave us wanting to return. Thanks Legendary Louis!
