What people are saying about Beguinage
In addition to the well-known highlights, our guide Anna also took us to lesser-known places in Bruges. She took the time even though we were a little late. She also showed us nice and affordable restaurants for lunch. We enjoyed our walking and carriage ride.
The tour was very interesting and informative! Ann was super nice and was able to answer all of our questions! Thanks again
