Wonderful trip with and excellent guide. Our guide was knowledgeable and she was great at her job. We really appreciated her extra stops and thorough explanations and stories for each. It was a great way to see a lot in a short time. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour with a great guide. Anna was lovely, interesting and knowledgeable. The boat captain was also very engaging and funny. The tour takes in most of the major points to visit in Bruges and gives a really helpful insight. We took the tour on our first day and were able to plan the remainder of our visit using the information and ideas from the tour. Anna was very helpful in giving additional information on restaurants etc. Having both the walking and boat tours included presented excellent value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Ann did a great job in showing us around Bruges. She is extremely knowledgeable in many details of the city. As she grew up in Bruges, this explains how passionate and educated she is about this charming city. We highly recommend having Ann show you around Rich and Lisa B (from New Jersey)
