Natalie was a great guide. We all really enjoyed the tour and it was incredibly informative. My children were pleasantly surprised by the little treats during the tour (as were the rest of us). Natalie was also a trooper as the weather was definitely not cooperative. I wish every city we visited had a walking tour like this. Bruges is a beautiful place and not to be missed!
Brilliant by our with a local guide.

Our tour guide Jan was so brilliant. Really funny and knowledgeable. Gave us loads of info about Bruges that we’d never had known so he brought the trip to life. Can’t recommend these tours enough.
Well worth it!

Had a lovely time on this tour. Our tour guide Bram was engaging and entertaining. A lovely way to learn about Brugge and see a different side of the city. Highly recommend!
Fun 2hrs that went by too fast
Andrew_M, Nov 2022
2hrs sounds like a long time but it flys by, free chocolate samples, a beer(not free but delicious) and lots of history of a beautiful city. I think if Colin Farrells Character in, In Bruges did this tour he wouldn't have thought Bruges was a "S***hole".
Highly recommended, very enjoyable walking tour

Best way to see the city!

Martin was an awesome guide! He was very knowledgeable of the stories and facts of the city. He took us to places we never would have known to go on our own. He was engaging but not over the top! Highly recommend! The tour is basically free so tip well!
Best way to learn a new city
Vivian_B, Nov 2022
We had Louis who was fantastic. This is the 2nd time I’ve done this. It’s a wonderful way to start a visit when arriving in a new city. We learned great history from a native of the city and could then explore the city the rest of our trip knowing where we wanted to go back to.
Some of the history was...

Lander did a lovely job of guiding a growing group in the busy streets. He had lots of pictures to enhance his stories and his voice was loud enough. Great way to learn about Bruges and get my bearings on day 1 of my trip!
Fun, educational and face paced.

‘Marico’ was fabulous! Fun, energetic, knowledgeable and truly a joy to spend the afternoon listening and learning from. He definitely made Brugge come to life. The facts and antidotal stories he shared were great! Highly recommend!
Vanessa_I, Oct 2022
Our guide, Eric was very knowledgeable and made the whole tour very interesting. Really worthwhile. We did the tour with our 3 boys who were tired by the end of it but also found it so interesting. Highly recommend this tour to see Brugge and understand its history.
Great tour

Jan is the BEST!!!
Sarah_R, Oct 2022
Jan was our favorite Guide on our week long trip to Belgium with 6 different Tours! We learned tons about Bruges and its history…and we laughed non-stop too. Jan was truly passionate about the City and had such wonderful knowledge of all things Bruges. We covered the entire City center and also were able to go over our Wish List of things to see with Jan and he was beyond helpful in answering all of our questions. Really can’t believe these Tours are basically free…what an amazing experience and one we would highly recommend!
History graduate was very enthusiastic and made our visit to Bruge all the more interesting - thank you
Sara_R, Oct 2022
The chap that did the tour was a History graduate and a local lad. He was so good, knowledgable and very enthusiastic. We learnt so much. I would recommend doing the tour early in your stay 👍
