Full description
Known as the Venice of the North, there is so much to see in the fairytale medieval city of Bruges. With the help of a local guide, avoid the tourist crowds and get the best introduction to this beloved city. Your hosts are natural storytellers, each one with a different background ranging from the arts to history.  Begin at the lively marketplace square. Wander past cobblestone streets, dreamy canals connected with historical buildings, and picturesque streets of whitewashed houses. Make your way towards the Eiermarkt where you can find local pubs and nightlife hotspots. Here sit at a pleasant cafe with tons of character and the biggest beer selection in town.  Explore the canals by foot with your guide and find the best relaxing scenic views. Notice the beautiful tower of the Church of Our Lady standing tall in the sky, which is a perfect illustration of the craftsmanship of Bruges' artisans. Hear about the history from your guide and marvel at one of Europe's oldest hospital buildings.  Take a peek into the oldest working brewery in town, known for a remarkable underground pipeline exclusively for beer. Top off your tour with a visit to a tranquil and hidden oasis in the city center, with a lane filled with beautiful beguinage and almshouses.

My brother and I go to Bruges for a day every year. We do this in memory of our mother, who was fond of Bruges. So we thought we knew the city well. Out of curiosity, we signed up for the Kickstart tour of Citytoursbelgium. What else could a guide tell us that we didn't already know? Well, that turned out to be quite a lot. Anna took us on a leisurely walk through the city. Suddenly we discovered ornaments on a wall or ceiling, which we used to just pass by. We were told background information or interesting stories. Anna took her time and didn't work "on the clock", so we actually got an extra long walk. Thank you!

Started right on time. We got a private tour through Bruges, because there were no other participants at the time. During the tour we got a lot of information and we were pointed out small details that you would normally miss. We came to beautiful places that we could not have found ourselves. Super nice, highly recommended on your first day in Bruges.

We were late for the tour and Filip picked us up at a different spot. Also ended the tour at the place we needed to be next. Total flexible. Filip is friendly and loves his town and this shows when he talks about Bruges and its history. A perfect way to start your visit in this beautiful town.
