Full description

Depart the Belgian capital in the morning and transfer to the charming town of Bruges. Upon arrival, see why the entire historic center of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Go to the Lake of Love to see a calm oasis in the heart of the city.

Marvel at the 13th-century Begijnhof,  covered in a carpet of daffodils in the spring. Continue to the quiet, paved square of Walplein, and stroll down the narrow Stoofstraat. See sights such as the 800-year-old St. John’s Hospital, and the imposing façade of the Church of Our Lady.

Learn the history of the opulent palace of Gruuthuse, and walk alongside the banks of the Dijver Canal. Other highlights include the charming canal-side houses of the Rozenhoedkaai, the tiny square of the Huidenvettersplein, and the site of the 1st count’s castle on Castle Square.  Then, enjoy 2 free hours for lunch and explore the city as you please. Taste some of the exclusive chocolates of Bruges and pop into some of the legendary lace shops. Transfer back to Brussels, with an approximate 6:00 PM arrival time.

It was a very worthwhile tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable and charismatic. The only thing I would recommend is that you start using microphones and headphones so that the entire group can hear the information equally. There were times when I didn't listen well.

The Bruges day trip was amazing. Our tour guy Gamal was so knowledgeable and really funny, it made the whole day all the better. We’ve seen so many things and learned so much not only about the history of Bruges, but about Belgium in general, which made us appreciate the country and its cities all the more. Would highly recommend to anyone. Bruges with Gamal must be on your TO DO list whiles in Brussels !

IMPORTANT: Your bus might not have a toilet on board. This is important because even if you have an emergency the bus driver MIGHT NOT stop. I was so glad Fofi (the spanish tour guide) was so nice and accommodating and was able to get the bus driver to stop. I made the huge mistake of touring a brewery in the afternoon and well.... My mistake. Do keep this in mind for your afternoon activities. That being said, this was a great way to see Bruges. Our guide, Vita was very friendly and knowledgeable. The spanish tourguide on our bus, Fofi was great. Since we're bilingual we were able to listen in on the spanish tours and they were quite the characters. Definitely would recommend the spanish tour guides as well.
