The most beautiful city of Belgium with your own private guide!

On our way south you will see typical Dutch polder landscape. This area is marked by windmills, dikes and little canals.
We will pass Rotterdam, the biggest port and gateway to Europe, and cross the former islands of the province of Zealand with its neat villages, beautiful countryside and sandy beaches. We will also see the huge flood barriers that protect the lowlands and keep our feet dry. We cross the Belgian border and soon after we will arrive in medieval Bruges. You can explore the city on board of a canal cruise, followed by a guided city walk. You will be impressed by the Market square and the Burgt square, the beautiful city hall, the fish market and the church of Our Lady with a statue of Michelangelo. What's about tasting Bruges' chocolate, a waffle, Flemish fries or the famous beer? There is time for shopping too!
On our way back to Amsterdam we will have a short stop in Antwerp or at the border (time permitting).

More time? Extend the tour with another day, explore Bruges by night and see medieval Ghent or Brussels too!

Since all streets in the historic center of Bruges have cobble stones I recommend comfortable walking shoes. Please bring also appropriate weather gear and some cash for your personal expenses for this tour. Do not forget to bring your photo camera.
