Dirk showed us the main sights of the city, and what we wanted to see.

We loved our two hours with Dirk. We saw the relic of the Holy Blood in the Basilica of the Holy Blood, and the lovely Romanesque chapel on the lower level. He gave us a moment to photograph swans on the canal on our way to the beautiful Church of our Lady. We wanted to see Michaelangelo’s Madonna and Child inside the Church. After that, he showed us where to find Old Saint John’s Hospital and gave us a brief tour of the Groeningemuseum, which was high on our list. He left us there to explore. Thank you for a great tour!

Rather chaotic at the beginning with lots of tour groups meeting at the same place and our guide was ill so we were combined with a different group and to start with so no-one knew what was happening until about 10 mins after it should have started. We were given our full time though. No map was given out but we were told where we could collect one from. Saw a lot of places but perhaps a little more detail would have been good.

It was an amazing day. Our guide Robert was very accommodating and was answering all our questions about Bruges and Holland. Great tour and Bruges is very impressive! We have done many tours in Europe but this was really the highlight of our trip. Robert made it an amazing experience, we wish him all the best. Highly recommended!!

Knowledgeable, friendly, best part of our visit

I booked this tour off the reviews & it delivered! Our guide was a true delight- so friendly, great English, and so knowledgeable about the architecture, the history of the neighborhoods, and the nuance of Brugge. This 2 hours was a highlight of our visit and gave us insight into the best tea shops, chocolate shops and more.

Fascinating and very well informed guide. Highlight of our stay.

This was the highlight of our stay. Our guide was extremely well informed and knowledgeable. His tour was fascinating and we were able to see parts of Bruges that we would not have found without him.
