Shout out to Andrea, our guide to Ghent and Bruges. She was very helpful, nice, informative and really make this trip the one to remember. Thank you very much. The trip was well organized. We were group with one elderly and one disabled person, that´s why we really appreciated well-scheduled time for sightseeing and break/rest.

We only had a few days in Belgium so a combined tour of Ghent and Bruges was very useful as we were able to spend our time very efficient. Don't expect to get the ins and outs of both cities but you'll be able to visit the must visit places in both cities. If you have more time, then I would recommend to take a full day visit to Ghent get as the city has much more to offer culturally.

I really enjoyed the tour and so did my children. It was well organized and the guide (Stefan) was nice and told us a lot of interesting things. I was hesitating to do it on my own, but traveling with children is more comfortable this way, you don't have to worry completely and the price difference isn't much. What would improve is to give a little more free time at lunchtime. It would also send the location of the recommended restaurant before arriving at it. It was clear to me that I did not want to use it and I had to cross half of Bruges to get there, and then return to where we were. I recommend the walk along the canal that they offer something cheaper than if you hire it on your own. It's worth it and it's not expensive.
