Such a great experience! So easy, getting driven to and from Bruges was comfortable and felt quick. The tour was great and we learnt a lot about the history of Bruges. It was great to get free time too to be able to explore on our own. Definitely recommend this tour for people unable to rent cars in europe but who want to explore different countries and cities close by.

My husband and I had a wonderful time at the waffle making and beer tasting event. I loved one of the beers (!) and the waffles were fun to make and yummy to eat. A great way to feel like you’re doing something local, getting fed, and meeting some new people. Highly recommended!

We had so much fun at this cooking class. It started off with Belgium beer so everyone’s was pretty relaxed by the time we started cooking. The tasting was the perfect amount of time. I have to admit, my Belgium waffles were delicious. I would do this again.

The guided tour in Bruges is pleasant. After the tour, we were given enough time to explore the city on our own and have a meal. It's refreshing because it's very different from Amsterdam. Very worth it.

Great fun, amazing host and really enjoyable. The Waffles and beer were very tasty.
