Full description
Discover the “Venice of the North” on a full-day guided tour of Bruges from Brussels. Depart the Belgian capital and transfer to the charming town of Bruges, located 100 kilometers northwest (and just 15 kilometers from the North Sea). Upon arrival, see why the entire historic center of Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Go to the Lake of Love (Minnewaterpark) to see a tranquil oasis in the heart of the city. Marvel at the 13th-century Begijnhof, which is 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 (Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekerk). 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 (Tanners Square), and the site of the 1st count’s castle on Castle Square. Striking buildings on the square and nearby include the Basilica of the Holy Blood, City Hall, the neighboring Market Square (Grote Markt), a handsome Belfry (Belfort) tower. Then, enjoy free time for lunch and to 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 18:00 arrival time.

  • Since January 1, 2018, Bruges has a new regulation for the management of tourist visits. On certain occasions, the company must perform the service using radios with headphones. Due to the contamination that implies using disposable helmets, we ask our clients to contribute their own to avoid the problem and collaborate with the environment. For those customers who do not have their own, the company will make available disposable for only € 1.

Our guide Isabel has explained everything to us fantastically, she has also made it very enjoyable. Enough free time to eat and take a photo, we also took the opportunity to take the boat ride which is €12/person for half an hour (recommended since everything is seen from the perspective of the canal).

Excellent service, the company that delivers it, BUENDIA TOURS, not only made this trip memorable, but also supported me in a very particular service, which was the proposal of my future wife in said city. The truth is that I recommend it 100%, they were always aware that my request was carried out, always worried about the details, I would definitely return with them.
