What to Expect

Bruges is one of the best-preserved and most beautiful medieval cities in all of Europe. Just a one-hour train ride from Brussels, it’s become an absolute must on every traveler’s Belgian to-do list. Quaint and romantic, its canals and cobblestone streets are a picture of life as it was centuries ago. This day tour to the city takes you through the ancient city center to all the places that make Bruges famous, as well as the hidden gems that make it dear to its locals.

More than just a pretty face, this town packs an historical punch. One of the first cities to help transform Western Europe into the trading center and driving economic power of the continent, Bruges was also the cradle of the Western Renaissance. Echoes of the once thriving economic and cultural hub is still seen today in the city’s breathtaking architecture, which has earned it its nickname of ‘Venice of the North’. 

Join our city trip to Bruges and discover one of the finest destinations in Europe. We start with a walking tour to explore the Saint Salvador Cathedral, the famous belfry, the Grote Markt and other unmissable sights, and learn about Bruges’ most significant historical figures like Jan van Eyck and Hans Memling. You’ll then have time to wander, relax, take photos, and check out your guide’s top recommendations in this vibrant city.

This fantastic experience in Bruges is sure to be one of your highlights of Belgium! Join us on this day trip and let yourself be romanced by this unique town. Please note that during the week, the return journey will be carried out with the guide upon finishing the tour. On Saturdays and Sundays, you can return at your own convenience.

Very fun day

Very organized. Max did a great job giving time to explore and take pictures and narrating the tour. It was a great length with enough free time to do a little shopping, eat and get a drink. Would take the tour again
