Take the time to discover Bruges and Ghent medieval architecture and canals.


Tour on foot in Bruges during which you discover the beauty and history of the picturesque streets and canals. Your private guide brings you to quiet and quality locations where you can best enjoy Bruges' highlights and hidden treasures.

Ghent is both historic and contemporary; it is crossed by two rivers and a number of canals on which 40 minutes city cruises are offered. Apart from the one thousand year old Castle of the Counts, Ghent renovated its squares and main buildings in preparation of a universal exhibition which was organised in 1913.
