Flavia did an exceptional job of touring us through Bruge. She gave us a history lesson on the area and showed us things that most tourists would just walk by. She told us which shops were the ones offering gifts made by locals and the restaurants to eat at. One restaurant she suggested, we ate at three times over the three days we were in Bruge. I highly recommend Flavia's tours.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julia, Thank you very much for these beautiful words. It was a pleasure to share that day with you two. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the “Flemish food” and the Belgium waffles. I'm glad to know that your friend Denis's health is better and that you arrived well in Vancouver. Happy new year 2020 and if in the future we travel to Canada I will let you know for sure! Warm regards from Bruges

Fantastic day with Flavia. Great walking tour with history lessons and fun facts. So much history. We covered a lot of ground but the pace was perfect. Showed us the best chocolate and beer that the locals enjoy.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Denise, Thanks for this nice review. I’m glad to know that you enjoyed the tour. I hope you had a memorable New Year's Eve in Europe and that you have arrived safe home. Have a great 2020!

Flavia was a wonderful guide on our day tour of Ghent and Bruges. She pointed out so many things of local interest, took into account our interest in languages and Belgian culture - I feel as if she answered a million questions for us! She gave us a great recommendation for touring Damme the day after our tour, recommended a nice restaurant for trying the local dishes and took us to her favorite spots for chocolate and waffles. It was a really fun day thanks to Flavia and her knowledge of the area!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Steve! Thanks for the nice review. I’m glad to know that you enjoy both cities in Flanders! Keep enjoying and now the holiday are finish and now back to school! Warm greetings from Bruges

Flavia was a great source of local knowledge & contacts - she didn't stop with an excellent tour of Ghent & Bruges, also helped us plan our next 2 'free' days & arranged transport to Brussels airport for our departure, which had become a major source of worry for us. As well she was very good company & we have no hesitation in recommending her to our friends & anyone in need of a quality guided experience in Bruges.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela. It was a fantastic day walking both cities. You were both awesome company, my favorite part was the lunch tasting and...sharing stories together. I hope you have enjoyed the rest of the days in Bruges; have a nice trip back to Australia x x x

Flavia was very knowledgeable about Flanders and was the perfect tour guide for our family group. We enjoyed the little known secrets she shared and would have missed some very important facts if we did not take the tour. We highly recommend any group to take a tour or you will surely miss some very important information re the city of Brugge.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carol, Thank you very much for your nice review, I also has enjoyed this day with you and the rest of our group! Wishing you all the best!!! Warm regards Flavia

Flavia and her tasting tour were amazing. Flavia was so great it was like having your sister or one of your close friends showing you around Bruges. My family loved the waffles, chocolate, cheese and beer and the history of Bruges and Flanders that was intertwined throughout. Flavia took us to places off the beaten path that we never would have found on our own and provided superb recommendations. We have used Toursbylocals on many occasions and Flavia was among the best guides we have had.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much! I had a great time with your great family and I'm so glad you liked Bruges. Was really a nice experience tasting locals beers, cheese and chocolates!!! Greetings to the kids and next time in Bruges we will be back for more...

Flavia was very sweet and knowledgeable. Brugge really suprised all of us. It is such a neat little town. She was able to take us to places "hidden away" and explain the history of this quaint place. Highly recommend her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Donna, you were all absolutely great. History isn't always something for the teenagers but they seemed happy with the city and with fries , chocolates and waffles. I hope all goes well with the returning flights x x x

Flavia was on time, and met us exactly where planned. She was very familiar with Bruges, both in terms of the city's history and it's present day status. We hit all the highlights of the area, starting with a walk from the train station. We entered the core of the city and Flavia situated what we were seeing with interesting stories. Also, Flavia tailored our tour to drop us at Halve de Maan, where we had prearranged for an afternoon lunch. Thanks for a great tour!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Robert! Was a pleasure for me guide you and the students in Bruges! I hope you enjoyed the rest of the European road trip and I look forward to seeing you in Bruges next year! Best regards, Flavia

Meeting us at our hotel, Flavia led us through parts of Bruges that we had not seen on our own. It was into neighborhoods with interesting pubs and restaurants, out to the dike and windmills - away from the main square. All along the paths, she had enchanting stories to tell. Because of the time of year and the change to daylight savings time, the tour was more of a "dusk" than a "night" tour, which benefited the experience. She clearly loves her city and her tours are enthusiastically done.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stuart, Thank very much for the review, Im really glad to know that you enjoyed my Dark tour in Bruges. Many greetings, Flavia
