Nathan was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable and proud to be a native of Bruges. He gave us suggestions on places to eat and additional sites to see; we went to one of the restaurants and had a wonderful experience. Overall great experience.

Great tour!

Nathan’s tour of Bruges was perfect. He hit the highlights, gave a bit of history, and pointed out favorite pubs and restaurants. The tour was 90 minutes in length and well-paced. Highly recommend.
Great Tour

Great introductory tour with Patrick. Highly recommended. Patrick showed us all of the important sites and museums to which we then returned on or own the next day for a more indepth visit. Exactly what we expected.
What a romantic town!
, Apr 2022
Our guide Patrick is a Brugge local and knows everything about this town and it’s history, and loves sharing it. We had a great time discovering the highlights and also less known facts about this romantic town. We had a great time!
Very informative

Bruges walking tour
, Nov 2021
The walking tour is great. Our tour guide, Anna, did an amazing job going into the culture, architecture, people, etc. and would highly recommend. It was a rainy day but didn't matter as the experience was still great. Taking the tour is a great way to feel more connected with the town.
Best Tour of the Trip
, Nov 2021
Y'all. Book this tour immediately. Our tour guide Patrick absolutely made our entire vacation. We went to Bruges not expecting much, to be honest. It was supposed to be a quick over-nighter between Brussels and Amsterdam, I signed us up for this tour just to kill some time. We booked 5 private tours over the course of our vacation and this one was our very favorite. It was fun to see this sweet little town through the eyes of a local. Patrick's passion for his hometown made me fall in love with Bruges. From the churches to the canals to the courtyards to the museums ... Bruges has so much more to offer than just a Belfry! Patrick was friendly, thoughtful in his approach, energetic and enjoyable. Who knew there was so much to see, learn and do in a town only 6 miles big?! Patrick, that's who! If you do one thing when you're in Bruges, make it this tour. Seriously. (And make sure you book an extra day in your hotel... you're going to need it after spending some time with Patrick!!)
Beauty & history.
