Chiara_V, Mar 2023
Very organised trip and in one day you manage to visit two places which might be impossible to do using public transport. Very knowledgable guides; meeting point easy to find; comfortable coach; walking at a normal pace, no rushing, which also makes it possible for not-so-fit people! The only thing I would recommend is that you take a pair of headphones with you otherwise you have to buy them for EUR1. We liked more Bruges than Ghent, however they are 2 popular places travellers often visit when in Brussels.
James_K, Mar 2023
Bruges was gorgeous and our guide was very informative. He took us back to the Middle Ages and told us how it was back then.
Bruges and Ghent guided tour from Brussels
Thelma_M, Mar 2023
Emma did an excellent job imparting her knowledge about Bruges and Ghent. Her ability to communicate the historical relevance of the places we visited, made the tour very interesting. She has a sense of humor and provided a service that is above and beyond my expectations. If you have day to spend in Belgium, this tour can be one of your options. Emma - Thank you for making our experience a special one.
Fabulous day with Bruno
Andrea_D, Mar 2023
I wasn’t sure what this your would be like, but I was pleasantly surprised. The bus was nice and comfortable, and our guide Bruno did an excellent job of giving us pertinent details and also allowing for free time exploring. If you’re on the fence, I would recommend this emphatically. Yes, it’s very “touristy” but you can’t see two gems of Belgium any better especially for the price.

Learning about the history of the two cities and experiencing the beautiful architecture. The guide was very knowledgeable and could communicate well in several languages.
Great trip
Veronica_S, Mar 2023
We had a fabulous day and saw the best parts of Burges and Ghent plus time to explore on our own. Mark was an excellent guide. He was very informative and very amusing and his personality made the trip very memorable. Thank you Mark.
Love it.
Kuiyuan_L, Mar 2023
The English tour guide was very energetic, friendly and professional. Bruges and Ghent are great places to visit.
Excellent trip to Bruges and Ghent.
Karen_M, Mar 2023
Great trip. Bruno our tour guide was exceptional, he was full of information. Bruges is a beautiful, picturesque city. We had some free time so we were able to take a horse carriage ride around the city. We also stopped off in Ghent in the afternoon, and were able to get into some of the buildings to see the architecture, stained glass windows etc. once again Bruno was full of interesting information. Bruno made our trip with all his knowledge and excellent language skills. Comfortable walking shoes is a must due to cobbled streets and amount of steps. You don't need to be really active to do this tour as the tour guide stops to give out information regarding the sights, so we got a breather now and again. This tour is certainly worth the money. I would highly recommend.
Great Way to Spend a Day in Belgium
Ryan_K, Mar 2023
Great walking tour, and excitement guide, of Bruges and Ghent. Timings were very reasonable, plenty of free time to take in the sights before moving on; understandably not the longest time in these places, seeing as it's a long way to go in a single day.
Fabulous Day

Kristina_G, Feb 2023
Our tour guide Bruno was very pleasant and witty, so we really enjoyed his stories. This travel assumes a lot of walking, but it was an optimal mix of stops and goes, so it was not too demanding. Bruges and Ghent are beautiful cities, trip is worth of money.
Best tour with Mark!
Vilaiwan_A, Feb 2023
One of our best tours!! Mark Bellido, our tour guide made this a most memorable tour. His professionalism, knowledge and passion extended to his tour group was most impressive. We were so lucky to get him for our day trip. Book this tour and hope you get Mark as your tour guide. He made it a fun day and lots of very knowledge shared. Thank you Mark for a most memorable day with you! Would do it again if we ever travel back your way. To anyone reading this…this is one of the best tour! Don’t miss it. Book it!!! You’ll be happy you did.
Organized and Time bounded
JohnPaul_A, Feb 2023
This is suitable for people who wants to discover Brugge and Ghent for a day. I really enjoyed the free time given every after walking tour. I was able to walk around and enjoy the place even just for an hour. Bruno and his team was very approachable, knowledgeable, organized and time bounded. The team was considerate enough to wait for 2 late passengers even though it was clearly instructed to be back in the bus on a specific time. Kudos to you all! So kind and thoughtful.
2 Cities in one day. Great trip
PHILIP_O, Feb 2023
Great value day trip to see Bruges and Ghent in one day. The trip with our guide Ramon and Buenida ran like clockwork. Ramon was an excellent guide and very informative. The right amount of time to see the highlights of both cities.

dphansen1, Jan 2023
It was very cold. But our guide, Mark, kept us moving and informed the entire trip. You have to be physically able to do this since there was a lot of walking. The cities have lots of history besides being picturesque.
Wear Comfortable Shoes To See These Beautiful Cities
Teri_L, Jan 2023
Overall it was a nice tour. Lots of walking. All entries to museums and churches are not included and you only get about one hour and a half of free time in each place to explore on your own so keep that in mind. Both cities were equally beautiful, the food and shopping was great also.

I liked the town of Bruge very much. Very cute town. Loved the stories our guide told us. Ghent was also very interesting.
