Make your way to a central location in Bruges for a 12pm departure, then learn a bit about Bruges as you walk along a series of scenic canals. Find out some of the city’s quirky history when you pause by the oldest bridge in the city, and stop by the 2be Beer Wall, an impressive testiment to Belgian beer culture, which UNESCO recognizes as part of the world’s “Intangible Cultural Heritage.”

Continue to the Burg Square Town Hall and the 12th-century Basilica of the Holy Blood, then walk through Koningin Astridpark, a historic public park with picturesque water features and a pretty gazebo. See the historic fish market and Mennewater Lake, then pause for a chocolate tasting before visiting the Belfry of Bruges and the Bruges Beer Museum.

Throughout your tour, though, you can take advantage of your time with a private guide to see just the things that interest you most, from this “best of” tour of the city to a walking tour focused on history, culture, or more. The 2-hour, private walking tour concludes in central Bruges.

A great, personalized walking tour

Knowledgeable, interesting, and accommodating, Etienne led us through the history and streets of the Jewish section and the highlights of central Antwerp. For those who enjoy a personable and informative tour guide, you could 't do better than Etienne.

The best way to learn about a city

I think you get so much more out of a visit to a place when you spend time with a local. Nathan provided so much good information and history, it made our trip so much more meaningful.
