Description

Start your unforgettable trip with your local guide near the Central Station of Brussels (18, Boulevard de Berlaimont, 1000 Brussels) on one of our comfortable coaches. Your adventure begins the moment you step onto the bus: our guide will kick off the day by providing an overview of the country’s and its capital history and significant events. In Ghent— a vibrant student city known for its lively atmosphere and medieval architecture, we will show you the Saint Bavo Cathedral, home to the famous 'Adoration of the Mystic Lamb' painting. Next, you will wander through the historic port of Graslei. Marvel at the imposing Castle of the Counts and discover hidden corners of the city like the Great Butchers' Hall. During your free time, you will also be able to sit in a terrace and enjoy other corners of the city. Once in Bruges, the fairytale atmosphere of this UNESCO World Heritage site comes to life! Walk along the cobbled streets to the serene Lake of Love, and explore the historic Begijnhof complex, built in 1245 to house religious women. At lunch time, you will be able to grab a quick snack or follow your guides’ recommendations. After lunch, the guided tour continues through the city's former Red Light District and historic monuments such as the 11th-century Old St. John’s Hospital. Once in the Market Square (Grote Markt), the city’s central square, you will see the famous Belfry tower. You can also enjoy an optional boat trip along the city’s numerous canals, entirely organized by your guide. Bruges is known as our 'Venice of the North' due to its beautiful waterways. Return to the Central Station of Brussels, filled with enchanting and picturesque tales from your day's adventure!
