This is a good option if you want to see this two cities and you don't have the time to stay there for one night or more. We had some had some doubts because in some comments says that is not really a tour for English speakers but we didn't had so many options and we take it. The tour had 2 guides an Spanish guide and a English speaker guide, Bruno our guide was really nice and funny and told us some really interesting information.

The trip was fabulous. Thank you Bruno (our English guide) for an amazing Brugge and Gent tour. The way he does the tour was really great. He is very accomodating. He is more of a host than guide. I am very lucky to have this tour with him and a plus that he is a local, definitely knows what to offer in Belgium. I would highly recommend this tour.

The tour overall is worth the money. You enjoy not only the sceneries and the place but also the valuable information and knowledge about the history of Bruges and Ghent shared by our guide Bruno. Also, you can know where to go for the food and souvenirs as he also give a lot of insights about it. Saving your time and also your money.

Our guide was amazing! So knowledgeable about Bruges and overall awesome experience. Highly recommend!

Nice tour - managed to see a lot just within a day!
