a pleasant walk with many nice stories and fine details. We wanted to explore Bruges off the traditional paths. That has been very successful. Our entire group - 4 young adults and us as parents - listened with interest. Also thanks for the tips on addresses for beer, chocolate and cocktails! One has certainly been tried.
In addition to the well-known highlights, our guide Anna also took us to lesser-known places in Bruges. She took the time even though we were a little late. She also showed us nice and affordable restaurants for lunch. We enjoyed our walking and carriage ride.
Louis, gave us a fantastic experience. Both of our 17-year-old grandsons remained captivated by his enthusiastic stories throughout the evening. Highly recommended!
The tour was very interesting and informative! Ann was super nice and was able to answer all of our questions! Thanks again
