Full description
Explore Bruges on a walking tour with a local guide. Join a boat cruise along the canals to see the sites from the water. Meet your guide in the Markt for a guided tour of the city. Discover the narrowest street, the beautiful 12th-century basilica, and the golden statues on the impressive courthouse. Next, explore the fish market surrounded by 126 columns. Then, embark on the second part of the tour. Board your boat at the quay for a cruise along the canals. Sail beside ivy-covered facades and under bridges as you learn about the beautiful sites from your captain. Admire the old trading houses at the former harbor and the Beguinage. After half an hour on the water, head to the secret garden of an almshouse, where you will be surprised by the beauty of picturesque Bruges.

Anna is the perfect guide, who is very flexible and adjusted the tour on the spot, because we already saw some parts of the tour ourselves. Besides, she takes all the time for us and even extended the door even for us to show us even more, without asking more money or a tip. She is an excellent guide which we highly recommend. Kind regards, Henriette and Pascal The Netherlands
