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.

A Recent Review of this tour

Wow Roger is an amazing guide! We wanted to learn about the culture and history of Belgium and boy is Roger the perfect person. He is just such an amazing fountain of information. We really got an amazing picture of what life was like in the 15th century. We especially loved his historic picture of Ghent, what a great way to appreciate the past. We spent 9 hours in Roger's hand and what a wonderful treat he was. We could tell he takes pride in his work and we truly appreciated his energy & knowledge
