Shore excursion to see the highlights of Bruges in max 6 hours


Walking along the maze of winding cobbled alleys and romantic canals of Bruges, you imagine yourself to be in medieval times.
A typical day Bruges city walk includes the major highlight: the church of Our Lady and the Statue by Michaelangelo (Monuments'Men movie); the Market Square with the Belfry and the Town Hall Square (Burg) with the Chapel of the Holy Blood. We shall stroll by the Lake of Love (Minnewater) and the peaceful Beguinage cloister.

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a wonderful tour of Bruges with Roland. He had a great sense of the town and it's history. One of our friends had mentioned a lunch spot in our earlier communication with him and he had made reservations there for a delightful lunch. A great day.
