Discover the Venice of the North during your cruise stop.
The cruise port of Zeebruges is less than 30 minutes away from Bruges, which is called the "Venice of the North" because of its abundance of canals. Time stood still for several centuries in Bruges, which meant that the medieval buildings and atmosphere were well preserved.
During the walking tour with your private guide, you discover the beauty and history of the picturesque streets and canals. Instead of the common tourist traps, your private guide brings you to quiet and quality locations where you can best enjoy Bruges' highlights and hidden treasures.
A customized tour can be created in case you have special requests. You can also book me for tours in Antwerp, Bruges, Ghent, Leuven and Flanders Fields.
My car is a Volkswagen Tiguan which is comfortable for 1 to 3 passenger; a larger vehicle can be organised for groups up to 8 guests. A coach with a driver can be rented for bigger groups.
My agenda is up to date, so kindly check my availability.

We spent a memorable day with Roger in Bruges. He is witty, well-informed, considerate and he gave us an absorbable level of information. We went at a relaxed pace that allowed for shopping and an excellent lunch. I am a lawyer, so Roger took us to law-related sites. Although we booked a walking tour, Roger drove us to Flanders fields and other WWI memorials, which were moving and important. Roger's fluent English---including nuances---made the experience enjoyable and lasting. Highly recommended.
