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.

Ann did a great job in showing us around Bruges. She is extremely knowledgeable in many details of the city. As she grew up in Bruges, this explains how passionate and educated she is about this charming city. We highly recommend having Ann show you around Rich and Lisa B (from New Jersey)

We particularly enjoy the walking tour with our guide Theo, he was so knowledgeable and made our trip to Bruges fantastic. The canal tour was also brilliant but I could have listened to Theo for hours plus he took the trouble to walk us to our waiting taxi at the end. Highly recommend and an excellent price

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour and the sites we saw. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and history. Her desire to share information did make the walking tour before and after the boat ride much longer than everyone planned and people had to stop short to get to dinner reservations, etc. Having said that, it was definitely a wonderful way to see and learn about the city.
