with possible stop over in Damme
You prefer traveling to Ghent and Bruges by car? Then this is your tour. My car can host 3-4 persons.
Not only will we visit the 2 most famous medieval cities in Flanders, we will stop at another medieval gem off the beaten track near Bruges: Damme. Mostly unknown to foreigners, this small authentic town comes with great ancient history. Although small in size, the town is known for many cultural attractions and its wonderful surrounding nature. The town occupied a strategic location due to its close proximity to both Bruges and Ghent and its canals connecting it to the North Sea. The history of Ghent and Bruges need to be looked at in its interconnectedness with Damme. In medieval times these 3 cities formed an international metropolis each with a very different architecture and atmosphere.

Doris was outstanding! We spent the entire day with her - from Bruges to Ghent and learned so much along the way. She is super friendly and comfortable to be with. She took us away from the busy paths to the quieter streets to avoid the crowds, and gave us a lot of information about the towns and historical significances. We highly recommend Doris and would take another tour with her in a heartbeat!
