A 3.5-hour Bruges walk including local flavours tasting with personal local guide

It's more than a tour, it's more than a meal - it is an experience!
This 3 to 4 hour tour will allow you to explore the old town, immerse you in the history of Bruges and culinary culture of Belgium. We'll talk about history, architecture, traditions while sampling local flavors.
In Belgium, beer is more than just a frothy beverage - it is a culture. With over 450 different varieties, many Belgian beers have personalized beer glasses in which only that beer may be served. The shape of each glass enhances the flavor of the beer for which it is designed. The country has enjoyed an unparalleled reputation for specialty beers since the Middle Ages. Let us take you on to some of the most typical beer parlors and then just relax and enjoy the many flavors! we also sample local farmers' cheese, sausages, pâté, freshly baked bread, fries of course and chocolate.


Main Market Square, Burg Square, the Beer Wall, Church of Our Lady, Canals, St John's Hospital & Memling Museum, Gruuthuse, Beghinage, Minnewater (lake of love), Belfry Tower, Main Square, Cathedral, etc. .

A Recent Review of this tour

Joyce hit the ground running with her great smile and infectious enthusiasm for her subject. Also, her English is excellent. The tour gave us everything we wanted - easy access to major sites, recommendations of where to find the best food and drink, and local knowledge and insights that we would not otherwise have enjoyed. On a very hot day Joyce led the tour at an appropriate pace and there was never a dull moment. I recommend Joyce and this tour highly.
