Tour duration: 10 hours

Private Tour from cruiseterminal of Zeebrugge or Antwerp or from Brussels to Bruges and Ghent in an 8 seater mini-bus

Bruges is completely surrounded by water and the old canals were part of the defense of the city. Complete your visit with a canal cruise. Do you want to see the city from a different perspective? I can integrate a canal cruise in the walking tour.

Bruges prouds itself in works of art by Michelangelo, Jan Van Eyck and Hans Memling. Do you wish to see these masterpieces? I can organise a visit to Our Lady's church or St John's Hospital.

Ghent is a student city full of surprises. The 1000 year Count's Castle has only been occupied once. Do you want to know by whom? I will tell you during the tour.

Ghent has two rivers and several canals, even the inhabitants don't know which is which. Do you want to know? I will explain you during our tour.

Ghent has an immense cultural and architectural heritage. Saint Bavo cathedral houses a painting which is one of the seven masterpieces of our country. Do you want to know which one? I will reveal it during the tour.
