Best of Bruges, including transport from and back to the Port of Zeebrugge
Meet and Greet in the port of Zeebrugge. We drive to the city centre of Bruges. Then we discover the city by walking; we cross the beguinage and discover a 'beer'pipeline!
I take you back in history by explaining the surprising stories that happened behind the walls of Saint John's Hospital. We continue to see the church of Our Lady (with optional inside visit, € 6, 00 per person), walk along romantic canals, meet a beerwall and arrive in the medieval city centre to see the beautiful Burgsquare with old buildings such as the Town Hall and the Basilica of the Holy Blood.
We finally end our tour on the Market Square, where we can see the Belfry Tower and beautiful former guildhouses.
Then, it's time to go shopping for Belgian chocolates, waffles or lace and why not sample one of the fine Belgian beers or local specialities?
A canal boat trip can be the perfect addition to your walking tour (about 30 minutes, € 8, 00 per person).
After your free time, we drive back to the port of Zeebrugge.
The transfer to Bruges takes about half an hour crossing the port and countryside.
Then, we discover the city centre by walking about 2 up to 3 hours, depending on what you wish, followed by about 2 hours free time.
Possibility for optional inside visits to the church of Our Lady (extra entrance fee) and the Basilica of the Holy Blood (free entrance to both chapels, closed between 12. 00 and 14. 00).
A canal boat trip, about 30 minutes can be a perfect addition to your walking tour.
* I recommend comfortable shoes to walk on cobblestones (can be slippery in case of rain).
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: Exit of the Security Gate of the terminal of the port of Zeebrugge. This is the closest point where private tours can pick up guests. You might need to take the free shuttle bus (red color) from the ship to the security gate of the terminal. (2 minutes drive). In some cases it's a short walk to the ship.
I wait at the exit of the terminal showing a paper with your name on it.
End location: Security Gate of the port of Zeebrugge. This is the closest point where private tours can leave guestss. You might need to take the free shuttle bus to go back from the security gate to the ship. In some cases it's a short walk to the ship.
Duration: 6 hours
This is the maximum duration, including transfers from and back to the port, walking tour, free time. When ship is leaving the port of Zeebrugge early, the tour duration is shorter, to be sure that you can be on board on time.
As I am not the driver, I organize transport from the port to the city and back. Of course I accompany and guide you during these transfers. In the city center, you don't need transport as it is a walking tour.
