The Best of Bruges is a unique small group tour. In about 2.5 hours we'll give you a proper overview of the history of Bruges. Through engaging stories an expert local tour guide will bring the history of the beautiful medieval city centre to live.
Of course, we will show you some of the main highlights of Bruges on this tour, but also want to take you to some lesser known places often missed out on by visitors. Before we finish there's plenty time to discuss what to do in Bruges afterwards.
The starting point of the tour is at the Market Square, right in front of the Belfry Tower. The end point is (usually) just around the corner. The entire route is wheelchair accesible so of course bringing a stroller is no problem either.

Definitely going to judge all future tours against this one. Pascal was so great and you could feel his love for the city in the tour. We had so much fun with this tour and definitely walked away feeling like we’d gotten the best of Brugge.
We had a wonderful tour with Edward! He was so knowledgeable and friendly and we really got to know the city from a local perspective.
We had a great walking tour with Ray. It was very informative and hit all the must see spots. Ray was a super knowledgeable and fun guy to walk with. I would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Bruges.
