Full description
Your local host has the magic key to unravel the highlights and hidden gems of this medieval city while avoiding the tourist crowds. If you feel like changing the route, your host will be happy to personalize the tour to your wishes and make their Bruges your Bruges.  Head to a local neighborhood where you can cross the canals. Stumble upon a hidden Gothic church, step inside and be amazed by its beautiful interior. Make your way to the Church of Our Lady that stands tall in the sky. Don’t forget to marvel at one of Europe's oldest hospital buildings right next to it.  Later on, it’s chocolate o’clock and time to visit an authentic Belgian Chocolatier. Do as the locals do and indulge a Belgian sweet treat. Peek into the oldest working brewery in town. This local hotspot has a fascinating story about a remarkable underground pipeline exclusively for beer. Top off your tour with a visit to a tranquil and hidden oasis in the city center. Find lanes filled with beautiful beguinage and almshouses. Tucked away, the serene and peaceful lake of love awaits. Enjoy the scenery as your guide tells you all about the magical legends.

    Great tour of Bruges

    We had a great tour of Bruges. Anne-Marie was our guide and really took us to the best places. We found it particularly nice that there were places that we would never have found on our own but that were incredibly fascinating and interesting. Anne-Marie has a great deal of knowledge and it has never been boring to listen to her. We really felt at the end of the tour that we saw all the highlights (and more). Thanks again to Anne-Marie and Withlocals - we highly recommend!

    Our guide was very informative and very nice

    however, the guide was not there at the agreed time of 2:00 p.m. Something had gone wrong in the planning and organization. After a phone call to the local service station they found our booking and tried to organize an appointment on the same day. We then started the tour at 4:00 p.m. The service apologized “a thousand times” for the inconvenience and we were satisfied.

    Met gids Anna zeer mooie plekjes gezien en interessante verhalen gehoord en inderdaad verborgen pareltjes gezien. Het was niet gehaast en het was geen probleem om veel foto's te maken. Ik en mijn vriendje hadden de privé tour geboekt. Ze stelde zelf ook voor om enkele foto's van mij en mijn vriendje te maken. Ze wist waarover ze sprak en kon dit op een aangename manier vertellen. Ze was zeer vriendelijk en ik zou het zeker aanraden aan iedereen die de stad Brugge wil leren kennen.
