Return Details

Minnewaterpark, Minnewater 1-15, 8000 Brugge, Belgium
Make your way to a central location in Bruges, then learn a bit about Bruges as you walk along a series of scenic canals. Find out some of the city’s quirky history when you pause by the oldest bridge in the city, and stop by the 2be Beer Wall, an impressive testament to Belgian beer culture, which UNESCO recognizes as part of the world’s “Intangible Cultural Heritage.”

Continue to the Burg Square and the 12th-century Church of Our Lady Bruges, then see some of the oldest preserved hospital buildings in Europe. See the historic fish market and Minnewater Lake, then pause for a chocolate tasting at Delpa Chocolatier.

Throughout your tour, though, you can take advantage of your time with a private guide to see just the things that interest you most, from this “best of” tour of the city to a walking tour focused on history, culture, or more. Your private walking tour concludes in central Bruges.

Toured the city on foot with the incredibly knowledgeable and engaging Igor. All aspects of the history and relevance of Brugge to the progress and culture of Flanders was on display. The windy and rainy atmosphere of this particular Sunday only served to enhance this wonderful experience.

An extremely informative 3 hour tour around the streets of Bruges. It was a joy to have our own tour guide for the six people in our party rather than be part of a large tour group of various nationalities Xavier, our guide, was knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommended and great value for money. Pete

My wife and I were provided a very interesting and informative 3 hour tour around Bruges. The meeting place was easily located and our guide (Anne) was right on time for a 9:30 am start. Anne was 3rd generation Bruges so knew her town very well and we saw places we never would have discovered. I can definitely recommend this tour.

Igor was absolutely fantastic. The tour was just under 3 hours long and I had two little ones aged 8 and 5 among my party along with 2 teens (18 and 16) who all enjoyed themselves. Thanks Igor. Brugge was beautiful. We crammed a lot in for a day's trip. It was well worth it.

This tour is totally amazing! I came to Brugge, with little expectation, few knowledge of the city. However my guide Patrick has so much love for Brugge and is contagious! I have learned to admire this quaint town more! We went to places that are not famous to most tourists, that’s the beauty of this tour! What I regret, I should have spent more days in Brugge. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends, and without a doubt I am coming back! Thank you Patrick for this very memorable experience.
