Discover the beauty and over a 1000 years of history of the medieval city centre on this 2-hour free walking tour of Bruges. We're storytellers, so there won't be a boring moment and we're tour guides to share all our knowledge on what to do in Bruges once the tour is over with you.
We will take you back to the middle ages and let you imagine how life must have been in what was back then the richest city in the world. The Golden Ages of Bruges were the 1300's & 1400's.

Listen to our stories about love and conflict, architecture and wealth and, of course, about Belgian chocolate, waffles, fries and beer.

A very entertaining free tour of Bruges
Pascal did an excellent storytelling walking tour of Bruges in English. He was very enthusiastic, engaging and entertaining. He really brought the medieval city to life. Iâ€™d recommend his tour to families with teenage children as it was informative without being too fact filled with names and dates.

Steve was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Bruges and his daughter Nikki added lots of gems along the way. We couldn't have asked for better guides, well paced, considerate of the audience and very friendly and entertaining. Wish we could do it again. So much to take in, really enjoyable. Thanks Steve and Nikki!
