What people are saying about West Flanders

Lovely lady called Rita was our tour guide for the afternoon. We were provided with lots of information and shown some real hidden gems. We broke mid tour to go on a boat trip of the canals which was lovely, you really do get to see Brugge and its beautiful buildings in all its splendour this way and the captain of the boat was a really funny guy. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we would definitely recommend it so thank you Rita.

Mathieu was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and also very kind and responsive. It was raining but we stayed dry and were able to see so much in our 2-hour tour. My mom can’t walk great distances, so this was perfect for us.

Our tour was great! We very much enjoyed learning the history of the city and seeing the sights that you might not find on your own. The boat tour portion gives you a chance to see the city from a different view as well.

Loved this tour! Peter and Matthew were excellent guides - very friendly and informative. We got to go to places where the city tour bus cannot go. I highly recommend this tour

We loved our tour with Peter. He was extremely knowledgeable about all the history of Bruges and super patient and kind with us.
